The Gamble

I need a wife. She needs money. It’s a gamble, but one month will solve both our problems.

Unimpressed with my billionaire playboy ways, my father has given me an ultimatum — settle down and get married before the investors’ meeting of Gaston Pharmaceuticals, or I’m out the door. Yeah… he’s a dick but he holds my future in his hands, so I need to play nice, for a while.

One problem is that the meeting is only a month from now. The second problem is that I’ve never dated a girl I liked well enough to spend an entire night with, let alone a month. So my best friend and I process my dilemma the best way we know how — by getting mind-blowingly drunk.
And just like that, I wake up in Vegas with an epic hangover… and a wife.

A beautiful wife. A fun wife. A caring and creative wife.

Now, all I have to do is convince her to stay married to me. I make her a promise. In four short weeks, we’ll quietly annul this farce and go our separate ways. I’ll get my life back. She’ll get hers plus some cash.

There’s just one little complication. I think I’m falling for her. As luck would have it, she hates my guts.

Every time I read a new story written by Alice Ward I remain speechless. The story is fully developed, the characters evolve as the story unfolds in front of the reader. She is very detailed-oriented so you have the impression that the characters are a part of your life.

This author blows me away every time. Her stories have a way of taking your on a journey into the lives of her characters that will leave you feeling energized and renewed in your faith in both people and love. They come with sexy scenes, hot chemistry and everlasting love, but they also come with real life drama, heartfelt decisions, and an endless array of emotions that will leave you feeling connected to something bigger than yourself.

Excerpt

“God, you’re so wet for me.”

I stared into his blue eyes, losing myself completely. When his fingers sank into me, I sighed and pressed myself harder against him.

“I want you,” I whispered and his nostrils flared.

“God, I want you too.”

Nothing existed beyond this room, beyond us as he kissed and stroked me to release.

“You’re so fucking beautiful.” Talen dipped his head and took one of my nipples deep into his mouth. Then he moved lower, and lower still. He kissed my hipbones and thighs before hooking my legs over his shoulders and diving into my heat.

I cried out and clutched at the blankets, arching into his mouth as his tongue swirled over my clit. I looked down my body and met his eyes as he licked and probed, stimulating nerve endings I didn’t know I had.
