Happy Release Day to Barbara DeLeo!
Her Indulgence, Contract for Marriage, was released this past Saturday!
I keep getting blessed to edit great writers and books set in neat places! Barbara’s book takes place in New Zealand. Her writing sizzles with tension from page one and her hero is hot, hot, hot!
And man, the book cover she got. *fans self*
Here’s the blurb:
Pregnant and alone after her ex-lover’s death, magazine editor Ruby Fleming’s not about to give up her home to the man who broke her heart—until she discovers her mother left half of the estate to somebody else, and she realizes she’s trapped.
Property tycoon Christo Mantazis wants the one thing his riches can’t buy—the villa where his mother has lived and worked as housekeeper for forty years. That it’s the same house he was banished from after being caught making love to the owner’s irresistible daughter stirs up old memories and now he wants her more than ever.
When Christo offers a marriage of convenience, Ruby knows it’s the only way for them to get what they want. Ruby needs her baby to have the link to its past, Christo needs his mother to retain her home, and for him to have the child he could never father.
But it’s another need—to have Christo again—that Ruby must resist at all costs.
