Brenda Jackson

blends heated sensuality and drama into a dazzling new novel featuring one her most unforgettable Madaris heroes yet...

One by one, Madaris men have surrendered to their grandmother's matchmaking. But Lee Madaris isn't letting anyone else control his destiny. He'll bring a bride of his own choosing to the family's holiday gathering--if his hotel's gorgeous new chef will agree to a marriage of convenience.

It's not just the chance to work at the Strip's hottest hotel that brought Carly Briggs to Vegas. Witnessing a crime in Miami may have made her a mob target. Though she's reluctant to complicate their working relationship, Lee's tempting offer is so hard to resist. And soon, desire is clouding their no-strings arrangement.

The danger that made Carly flee Miami is about to land at their door. So, Carly and Lee must decide who to trust, when to let go--and whether a love they never anticipated is strong enough to pass the ultimate test.

This is a fabulous story! The cover caught my eye and I love a good holiday read to get in the spirit of the holidays. Lee and Carly are a sizzling couple to get to know and their love blossoms along with all the action. This book brought it all good people working for success, the bad element and the agencies that police it all from the background. Even when Lee thinks he is one step ahead of his feisty grandmother she has a surprise for him. Mama Laverne is definitely in a class by herself. A must read and get extra copy to share, your friend, sister or mom would to find this in their stocking. Happy Reading!
