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?
The Marriage Bargain was a nice short read. It starts with a rich handsome man needing to find a "fake" wife, and a writer asked to do a story about him. But she gets fired for deciding against doing the story about him and his family, so she accepts his arrangement for a "fake" marriage for six months. This is just a short read to pass the time. It wasn't something where I connected with the characters, or got emotional involved with the story.
