Feature book: An Unlikely Bride for the Billionaire
An Unlikely Bride for the Billionaire by Michelle Douglas
What is the most important thing in a person? Money? Character? Understanding? Dylan is about to find out.
Mia Maydew is an introvert by nature. She also has a past to hide. But when she becomes the centre of the Fairweather wedding plans, she struggles to hide her past and deal with the very handsome and sexy Dylan. Dylan takes it a step further by then asking her to be his girlfriend so that he can assess his future brother-in-law’s intentions. He doesn’t believe the caustic Thierry is suitable for his sister, Carla.
Dylan Fairweather is a man who gets what he wants. And he wants Mia to be attentive to Carla, as she has few close friends and he wants to check up on Carla’s fiancé. Dylan and Carla have lost their parents and did not have the best experiences with other family members. These experience are more about their inability to achieve great heights in the ‘real’ world.
Soon Dylan has wormed his way into Mia’s professional and private life. He stops her from being fired and helps her redecorate her unit. Mia has been keeping a very low profile due to her prison record. Dylan is at first shocked but as he comes to know Mia, he realises she couldn’t have done what she was convicted for but must have taken the fall for someone else. Completing her prison sentence meant it relieved her of her guilt.
I really enjoy books that have heroines that are not perfect. I don’t mean the heroine is in self-critical mode but has either a real issue or in this case has a prison record. It makes them more real and makes the hero try harder to win her over. This is a nice story but it is the resilience in the heroine that will absorb the reader. Naturally, there is a very satisfactory ending and a comeuppance for one character.
