Peek Inside The Spanish Billionaire's Hired Bride

Blackmailed to marry against his will, Ricardo Almanza needs a wife before he’s thirty, and time is running out.

He makes Helen Marshall a business deal she can’t refuse—one million euros for three months as his wife. The small print on the marriage contract changes to read three months as his wife in every way—including in the bedroom. Has she gotten in too deep, or will she need a new contract addendum, extending their marriage forever?

She’s the perfect wife, but he’s not the marrying kind…

Blackmailed to marry against his will, Ricardo Almanza needs a wife before he’s thirty, and time is running out. A notorious playboy, marriage is the last thing he wants, but his stepmother’s sexy, debt-ridden personal assistant is the perfect solution. He makes her a business deal she can’t refuse—one million euros for three months as his wife. He might even enjoy being married to her…if she doesn’t kick the crap out of him again.

Helen Marshall can’t believe she’s considering Almanza’s outrageous proposal, but she must help clear her parents’ debts or they face financial ruin. The small print on the marriage contract changes to read three months as his wife in every way—including in the bedroom. Has she gotten in too deep, or will she need a new contract addendum, extending their marriage forever?

Praise

"This is another fabulous read by Rachel Lyndhurst. There's excellent dialogue, the sensual tension is pretty, pretty high, the hero is GORGEOUS, the heroine is feisty, and the sex is HAWT. What more can you ask for, really?'" - Evie, In Love with Romance

Oh, I do like stories where they pretend to be a couple wishing it were real - a marriage of convenience.

Sexy, intense, harlequin-esque love story. Both MCs are prickly, prideful, and prone to jumping to conclusions. Smoking hot love scenes and a lovely enemies to lovers plot. I do wish it hadn't ended so abruptly though. ...more

With a whirlwind courtship, complete with contracts, lawyers and lots of hasty jumping to conclusions about intentions and situations, Rachel Lyndhurst has managed to create two very likable cha... ...more

I really enjoyed this story, but I felt cheated at times. There were a couple of instances where I felt the author could have dug deeper with the emotions, and the ending left me wanting some more closure.

But having, said, this book has some fabulous descriptions, beautiful locations, hot sex, an... ...more

I liked this one- A lot! It's a typical marriage of convenience book. No demanding wills though. I liked the little plotting and scheming (somewhat cliched) but I really chowed down on it. It was fast so I didnt have any time to get bored or annoyed. loved the H/h! ...more

Ugh, it would've been great if she really got pregnant at the end, I mean she's always hungry, and all!
