Passion was never in the bargain
Addison Reed lost her fiancé, but she’ll do whatever it takes to protect his legacy. When the gorgeous and arrogant landowner, Brazilian billionaire Bruno Duarte, who is thwarting her at every turn, refuses to meet with her, she puts her plan into action. He will listen to her.
Bruno’s plan was simple: return to Brazil and marry to fulfill his father’s dying wish. But when his engagement crumbles, and he’s then stranded with an idealistic woman hell-bent on saving a tribe of people on his land, he sees the perfect solution. If his feisty and passionate abductor agrees to a bogus marriage, he’ll relocate the tribe.
With the Brazilian heat rivaling the growing heat of their desire, will Bruno and Addison abandon their respective plans and give in to each other, or will their differences tear them apart?

Kidnapping, Blackmail and a touch of love
A beautiful setting in Rio, A fun story line with kidnapping and blackmail, and a bit of history round out this great read.
Addie wants to stop Bruno from selling his land, Bruno wants rid of the past. The forced compromise helps both, but adds its own possible twist.
The chemistry is undeniable, the emotions are strong. Both characters have past to work through in order to trust each other. A very good read with a fresh plot!
A fantastic afternoon romance!!!
All she wanted was time to relocate the Brazilian Indian tribe before he sold the land they were living on. All he needed was a temporary wife so his dying father could pass in peace knowing his oldest son had settled down and was happy. Through much trial and error Bruno and Addie found so much more in each other. Could it all be destroyed when the land is sold out from underneath Bruno and Addie thinks he's betrayed her?
Bruno and Addie are complete opposites but compliment each other well. He is sexy, arrogant, and has deep rooted issues from when he was a young boy. Addie is cautiously brave, beautiful, smart and loyal to those she deems worthy.
Fantastic feel good romance that touches on a few real life problems. The story had depth, great flow and beautiful scenery. Thank you Carmen Falcone for a wonderful afternoon read.
