Despite her siblings’ recent successful marriages, Julietta Conte has no desire to seek a partner, unless it involves the family bakery business; unfortunately, a magic spell, her mother’s machinations and the sexiest man she’s ever met are wreaking havoc on her resolutions—and her heart.
Since Julietta does not believe in magic, she can’t believe that the simple spell her sister practically forced her to cast could make any difference in her life. Nonetheless, one could be excused for thinking something supernatural manifested Sawyer Wells, with his gorgeous face and uber-sexy body, not to mention his stratospheric rise to the top of the luxury hospitality industry. Sawyer Wells is developing his own line of hotels and wants Julietta to partner with him in an exclusive deal between their companies. Every instinct tells Julietta that this is the business opportunity of a lifetime and working with Sawyer to create something completely new will be a dream project. And while she acknowledges the blazing attraction between the two of them, she is determined not to mix business with pleasure, though her resolution is increasingly tested the more time she spends with him, and she realizes that behind his powerful, successful personality lies a man with a complicated history—one she wants to learn more about. As the two discover their own and each other’s wants and needs, in business and in life, it becomes clear to everyone but themselves that they were made for each other. But it will take a huge leap of faith and honesty to open their hearts and expose their vulnerabilities to reach for their happy-ever-after. Julietta and Sawyer are a formidable couple as they fight their attractions, embrace them and then, in the end, overcome their own flaws to fight for each other. Fun and flirty, the hero and heroine are rounded out by some serious past wounds that must be healed, which make them more sympathetic and textured.
Another hot, sexy, satisfying installment in the Marriage to a Billionaire series from romance phenom Probst.
