Just Another Marriage of Convenience? Guest Post & Review – The Billionaire Bachelor

Indecent Proposal…


Manwhore. That’s what the board of directors-and the tabloids-thinks of billionaire bachelor Reese Crane. Ordinarily he couldn’t care less, but his playboy past is preventing the board from naming him CEO of Crane Hotels. Nothing-and no one-will keep him from his life’s legacy. They want a settled man to lead the company? Then that’s exactly what he’ll give them.

Merina Van Heusen will do anything to get her parents’ funky boutique hotel back-even marry cold-as-ice-but-sexy-as-hell Reese Crane. It’s a simple business contract-six months of marriage, absolute secrecy, and the Van Heusen is all hers again. But when sparks fly between them, their passion quickly moves from the boardroom to the bedroom. And soon Merina is living her worst nightmare: falling in love with her husband . . .




Pre-Order the other very sexy Crane Brothers…

Curious about what makes Reese Crane, billionaire bachelor, the man? Lucky for us, I was able to get my latest (stubborn) hero to open up about 5 things that make him, well, him.

#5 ~ Beard trimmer. Reese is never without a sexy amount of stubble on his jaw and chin (see book cover) and this bit of dishevelment throws our heroine, Merina right off course. Reese maintains his look, never clean-faced, and never too beardy. Can you say control?

#4 ~ Scotch. Reese prefers it on the rocks, and as he tells Merina on their date one evening, “It’s always what I expect.”

#3 ~ Yacht. In case of temporary nuptials, climb aboard and hide out! But not for long. Sunrise on the deck isn’t optional for Reese—he and Merina need reporters to see them together after the wedding.

#2 ~ Sharp wit. I’m not sure whose banter is more infectious, Merina’s or Reese’s. But I promise you this: when they’re together, they are on fire!

#1 ~ The tie. Merina becomes obsessed with loosening Reese’s ever-present tie, much to the reader’s delight. As she puts it, she likes to see him come undone.

As do I, Mer. As do I. 😉



Oh the “marriage of convenience“, it’s a classic trope and one of my all-time favourites. Perhaps second only to the “best friends to lovers” one, though I am also fond of the “mortal enemies who fall for each other” one as well but I digress, I knew the moment I read the synopsis for The Billionaire Bachelor that it was just my kind of book.

Reece Crane needs a new image like yesterday, what would be the best way to get the board to take him seriously as a candidate for the soon to be available position of CEO? A wife, of course. Reece has no intention of making himself vulnerable for anyone, not again but he knows how to make a deal and he has something that Merina Van Heusen wants… badly.

The Billionaire Bachelor is perfect summer reading with likeable characters, even if Reece did overreact just a teensy bit but then again if he didn’t there would be no story. If you are in the mood for a romance with low angst (always a plus in my book) and intelligent driven characters then Jessica Lemmon’s latest is for you. You will enjoy it, I did.
