Revenge has been the only thing on real estate tycoon Marcus Pearson's mind since his mother's mistreatment at the hands of her upper-crust employer. He worked his way up from the bottom, but the only way he's going to get entry to their exclusive world is by finding a wife already in it. So when the most beautiful woman he's ever seen turns out to be a socialite from "old" money, and needs his help, he has the perfect proposition--marriage.
Pamela Harrington will do anything to save the women's shelter she volunteers at, even agree to a marriage of convenience. She isn't worried about the pretend passion with Marcus turning real, no matter how attractive he is--she's sworn off powerful, driven men who use her for her family's connections.
So she'll deny the way her pulse races with one look from his crystalline blue eyes. And he'll ignore the way his body throbs with each kiss from her full lips. Because there's no way he'll lose his blue-collar heart to the blue-blooded beauty.
I have a new appreciation for baseball!
Marcus Pearson wanted to purchase the Holcombe Hotel for personal reasons but the owner only wanted to sell to someone with old money. Inherited money was "old money" and Marcus didn't inherit his money. He worked hard and earned every penny. Pamela Harrington wanted something from Marcus. He was the new owner of the G Street building that she wanted to buy. It housed the women's shelter that she volunteered for. They both wanted something from each other. She wanted his building and he wanted her name that was attached to her "old money". A perfect match...or is it?
This story unfolded at the perfect pace and the characters were well thought out. Marcus and Pamela were steaming up the pages of this book. I NOW HAVE A NEW APPRECIATION FOR BASEBALL! Read this fabulous book and you'll find out exactly what I'm talking about.
I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Believe in the Power of Love
I loved this book! It had just about everything you would want in a love story. A deal, a pretty girl, a handsome man, and a story to share with others! A story like this only comes every so often, so getting one to read is a pleasure! I couldn't put it down! Thanks to the author for pulling me into her world and letting me enjoy the ride!
