Peek Inside On One Condition

OCD kindergarten teacher Johanna never expects her night of drinking to land a sexy Brit in her bed. Or for that Brit to show up at the school’s annual Valentine’s Day charity date auction, bid thousands just to talk to her again, and get down on one knee in front of everyone. Viscount Damon Hayes has never met anyone like Johanna. She doesn’t care about his title and doesn’t want his money, which makes her perfect to fulfill a surprise clause in his father’s will: get married and remain married for a year, or lose his fortune. When passions ignite and the two fall in love, their marriage of convenience becomes anything but.

Kindergarten teacher Johanna hates Valentine's Day. She hates romance, hates commercialism, and definitely hates her school's annual charity date auction. She never expects her pre-auction night of drinking to land a sexy Brit in her bed. Or for that Brit to show up at the auction, bid thousands just to talk to her again, and then get down on one knee in front of everyone and ask her to marry him.

Viscount Damon Hayes has never met anyone like Johanna. She's neurotic, fascinating, and fun. She also doesn't care about his title and doesn't want his money, which makes Johanna perfect to fulfill a surprise clause in his father's will: marry within three months and remain married for a year, or lose his fortune. A relationship is out of the question, but when passions ignite and the two fall in love, their marriage of convenience becomes anything but.


"On One Condition made my heart ache. The characters go thru a mix of emotions, as they begin to discover they're falling in love with one another. At times it even had me thinking oh no... what? It is a terrific short romance, and a 5/5 for me." -  Evie, from In Luv With Romance

Sometimes you just need a little romance in your life. A moment where you believe that love at first sight actually does exist. With ON ONE CONDITION, you get that plus so much more.

I was a little hesitant on a short story. I thought, what could an author really tell the reader in 85 pages. Dian... ...more

By ♥Rachel♥ May 25, 2012

Had fun reading this short and sweet story. Didn't hurt that the main hottie had a title and a British accent! *Swoon* Add to that was the perfect ending and lovely epilogue.

As Laura said, the best part to reading this was the fun and giggles shared with the Smut Trio! ...more

By Melissa March 28, 2012

I think I would have like this book more if I had not just read "The Marriage Bargain" by Jennifer Probst. This book was not a fleshed out as that one and since they have very similar story lines I could not help but compare. I never felt a connection to Johanna or really understood where she was... ...more

Hilarious, Sexy Fun

Johanna is a kindergarten teacher that thinks all the men in the world are schemers. Due to a little too much fun the day before Valentine’s day, she wakes up to a handsome man and kicks him out! Little does she know he’ll show up again as a knight in shining armor with an off... ...more

By Rachel February 22, 2012

Really, this book had me at the hot British guy. Seriously, what woman doesn't melt just a little at the thought of accented pillow talk? But then Ms. Alberts throws in a spunky heroine with a rich backstory and a heart of gold, a ton of laughs, and a bit of adventure--all in a very quick, addict... ...more

By Misa February 17, 2012

ON ONE CONDITION is a short but sweet romance. It follows a familiar trope - the arranged marriage - but does so with a humour that frequently makes you grin. But be warned - this story will also make you cry. And want to throttle the bitchy exes. However, it is a fairy tale and the ending is...... ...more

By Taryn February 21, 2012

Can I have a viscount that wants to make sure I'm happy in every way? Yeah...that's a YES PLEASE in all caps. Full of charm and romance with a side of misunderstandings wrapped in old hurts. These two had to work to find their happily ever after. Trust is so important to a relationship and these... ...more

By Bethany May 17, 2012

That was such a cute story, never really had a dull moment. You really can’t go wrong with drama, romance and a very hot British lord. It was a very fast read. I loved how it ended, very prefect.

My Review:
ON ONE CONDITION was one of those novellas that seemed to tick all of the boxes that I want to fulfill for a short, contemporary romance. Though, Johanna and Damon start of their relationship with what appears to be a one-night stand. Damon has his... ...more

By Kayleigh February 22, 2012

Wow, another incredible romance novella published by Entangled. I am yet to find an Entangled title that I do not absolutely love.

Juliette hated Valentine's Day. Everyone walking around happy while she is always alone. Enter Damon, the one-night stand she kicks out of her room only to run into th... ...more

By Bookish Michelle March 30, 2012

Who doesn't like Valentine's Day? Only one person: Johanna. She hates it! She hates being alone on Valentine's Day watching other couples being so loving. What's worse is her school's annual charity date auction where all singles have to go through (It's her third time). Not to mention that her a... ...more

By Cocktails and Books February 21, 2012

Take one person who doesn't think anyone can love them and add a member of the British aristocracy who's led to believe a marriage of convenience is needed to keep their inheritance and you have the premise of this lovely novella.

Johanna is determined to spend her life alone after having a few di... ...more

La historia es entretenida y rápido de leer. De verdad la leí en menos de un día, me tarde con la reseña porque tenía exámenes para los cuales estudiar pero aquí voy.

Diane Alberts is one of my favorite contemporary authors. Her voice is so prevalent in everything that she writes. I love the spunk, and snark that her characters have. They are always so relateable, and On One Condition is no different. Immediately you relate to Johanna and her disdain for Valen... ...more

By Jessi February 16, 2012

This modern fairy-tale type romance is sure to win over the hearts of many, just as it did for me. I loved the romance, the relationship, the characters--pretty much everything about this short romance. Maybe it was his British-ness, but Damon had me from the very beginning. ;) Also, I loved Joha... ...more

By Kristine November 17, 2012

The story is cute, predictable and fast-paced. There's a lot of misunderstanding between them but nevertheless I enjoyed reading it. I'm also touched by Johanna's past so I get to understand why she is so closed off in her surroundings and I'm so impressed by Damon's dedication to win her over. ...more

By Lindsey February 27, 2012

Wonderful story. I loved Damon and how sweet he is though maybe just a little lost. Johanna is great with her quick comments. ...more
