PURCHASE LINKS – 99c for a limited time / Free in Kindle Unlimited
Priscilla Story, the self-proclaimed “wild child” of the straight-laced Story clan, has always had a knack for getting herself trouble. Except this time, her “growing problem” is going to require a Daddy sooner than later…or she can kiss her inheritance good-bye.
Shane Olson, who previously dated Priscilla’s sister, Margaret, isn’t opposed to a marriage of convenience for the sake of furthering his business interests, but Priscilla – with her wild ways – is just about the last woman he’d choose to marry.
In order to make the marriage look convincing, they end up having to spend more time together than they’d originally planned. When rolling stone, Priscilla, who lives by the seat of her muu-muu, and seriously-ambitious Shane, who’s had his whole life planned since he was eleven, start falling for each other, it’s going to take a whole lot of compromise for this Bohemian and her Businessman to find their happily ever after.
Addicted 2 Romance Review:
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
This is the first/2nd story about the Story sisters. It stars Priscilla Story who is the black sheep, free spirit of the sisters, hence she is called a Bohemian in this story. Her sister is Margaret Story, who in a previous book ends up with Cameron which is why its the 1st/2nd story of the sisters.
There are two things I don't like in my romance novels, one is sisters who share a man, even if it was at one time, and two a woman pregnant with another mans child. From the outside this story featured both in this story.
But its not really true. Margaret and Shane, the hero in this story, well they kissed once or twice and its described as boring. They have nothing but a friendship. And before Priscilla even proposes to Shane, she makes sure that Margaret has no interest at all.
As to the baby, well its this guy who was married, is much older, tells Pricilla to get rid of it because he has a wife and family already. Plus he is in France.So while she is pregannt with this others mans baby, the man in question is 100% out of the picture and Priscilla hates him.
This story starts two years before. Around the time that Margaret quits working for her father, takes up with Cameron and starts her winery. It is also before Jessica Winslows wedding.
The story starts with Shane who has been quietly hanging out with Margaret. Margaret's dad wants Shane to marry one of his daughters so he can make Shane a CEO. He feels it is a family company so Shane must marry into it and the best bet is Margaret.
But Margaret has a thing for Cameron Winslow and so she refuses. However, Priscilla who is pregnant needs to get married as if she is single when her father finds out believes he will throw her out. So she talks Shane into marrying her instead. Shane and Priscilla have always liked/had an attraction but Priscilla is flighty and Shane is sorta a business nerd, and so while they flirted they never dated.
That is until the marry in secret and well that's when the magic happens. This story was fun, sweet, romantic and made me SIGH a lot. The author created a couple that I LOVED and one I loved reading about.
In this story both Shane and Priscilla are poor. In fact Priscilla needs to get on Shane's medical care because she does not have any money of her own.I kinda liked that they were a typical poor couple. Who had to work hard to take care of themselves.
This really was a wonderful story and I really loved the entire story and all the characters.
