Book Review: The Marriage Bargain

I am pleased to be part of the Promotional Book Tour for The Marriage Bargain

From the Publisher:
Camille Chandler is a tabloid journalist whose career is right on track–until her boss sees a curious ad in the L.A. Trades.
Wanted: Single actress for an extended gig abroad.
France’s mega-rich playboy Julian de Laurent is up to something and Camille’s boss expects her to find out what. Who knew the eccentric gazillionaire was looking to hire a temporary wife?
When Camille refuses to accept Julian’s proposal–and secretly write a juicy tell-all about the de Laurent family–she’s fired and left financially destitute, forcing her to entertain Julian’s proposal for real. But what’ll happen at the end of the contract period, after Camille has spent six months as the wife of a man she learns is capable of stealing her heart?

My Review:
I love romance stories that involve characters having to make difficult choices and live with them, good and bad and The Marriage Bargain offers a fairy tale romance.  This book begins quickly, and draws you into Camille and Julian's worlds making you want to read more and more.  By the second half of the book, as the characters work out their relationship, it slows down considerably - not unlike a real relationship, I suppose, but I would have liked to have had some of the spunk and surprise from the beginning translate more into the last third of the story.  In the end, it was a quick, fun read and if you like a good happily ever after story, you're going to want to add The Marriage Bargain to your TBR pile.
About Sandra: 
I write in a variety of genres such as paranormal (mostly time travel and reincarnation), contemporary, and suspense. While all my tales hold an element of romance, my books often push the envelope and step outside the boundaries of conventional romance.
