Feature book: Wedding Night with Her Enemy

15 November 2017

Wedding Night with Her Enemy by Melanie Milburne

Can a marriage of convenience really work for two determined people?

Allegra Kallas is not sure how she feels about being used as a business tool. Her father’s business is failing badly and there are men who are lining up to marry her to save her father’s business. Draco Papandreau has decided he will be the one to marry her. Allegra is actually a self-sufficient business owner and is shocked that her father would use her in that way, but then she is not really surprised. She decides she will go through with the marriage as she feels sorry for Elena, her father’s new wife, and baby Nico. Ultimately Allegra is hoping that her father has changed his adulterous ways, and that marriage to Elena will settle him.

Allegra had a dysfunctional childhood. Her brother died and then her mother. Allegra takes some of the blame that she was born a girl instead of a boy to take on the family business. But she then realises that it is what it is and she should get on with her life.

Draco proposes a marriage of convenience. There is some part of him that likes the fact that Allegra had a crush on him when they were younger and he plays on that when he convinces her the marriage is for the best. He doesn’t want to fall in love as a disastrous relationship damaged his heart (but we do find out it was more his ego and pride that was damaged) but he was able to have his revenge on the woman.

Once Allegra and Draco marry, they go on a honeymoon and the chemistry is obviously there. When they are trying to sort the future living arrangements and Elena comes to seek Allegra’s help, Allegra realises what she really wants in life, love and children. This is not what Draco wants … yet. Naturally the couple have their HEA.

While this is a story of a marriage of convenience, Allegra and Draco have known each other previously when they were younger and Allegra had her dream crush destroyed. The chemistry is still there for this couple, and as with many other couples, they need to work through the issues in their lives before they can find their way to each other. This was an enjoyable read.
