I absolutely loved the first book in this series and just had to get my hands on this one when a tour for it came around. The first book, [[ASIN:1620612798 The Marriage Bargain (Marriage to a Billionaire)]], was all about Julian and Camille. Julian is the son of an extremely wealthy man who was being pressured into marriage by said wealthy man. He decided that instead of marrying the woman that his father picked out for him, he would hire a woman to pretend to be his wife. She would carry on the charade for a certain amount of time and then they would divorce. In return for her troubles, she would leave him as a VERY wealthy woman. Well of course love prevails and the two actually fall in love.
This story is about Julian's brother Andre. Andre has never had any real desire to get married until he meets Camille's best friend Tasha at Camille and Julian's wedding. He basically carries on a long distance affair with Tasha while knowing that if he ever were to marry, she was exactly what he wanted. Well Papa is up to his old tricks again. This time Papa doesn't pick a woman to force Andre into marrying, instead he convinces a distant uncle to give everything he owns to Andre upon his death with the stipulation that he must marry within 60 days of the reading of the will and remain married for a whole year. If this was the only stipulation in the will, Andre probably would have said no, but his brother and sister's inheritance also is on the line. He must marry in order for anyone to get anything. Th obvious choice is Tasha, which Papa already knew. His father finds a way to convince Andre that if he were to marry Tasha, he would not be forcing her to give up her dreams or to be in a situation that she doesn't already want. Well Andre immediately leaves France for California to tell Tasha all about the inheritance and to beg her to marry him. However, when he gets to her door he discovers she's pregnant with his child. What happens? Well they decide to get married of course! However, Andre decides to hide the initial reason for his marriage proposal from her, a move that is sure to come back to slap him in the face. What Andre doesn't know is that there is a very distant cousin plotting to destroy his marriage in order for the inheritance to be given to her. How will it turn out? Will Andre marry Tasha and live happily ever after? Will they do something to violate the stipulations of the will, thus losing everything? Read to find out!
