THE BRIDE AND THE BARGAIN
Ten months ago, a paternal ultimatum caught Grayson Hunt, the president of HuntCom, and his three brothers by surprise. They were expected to wed and have a child within one year, or forfeit their inheritances. The others are married, but Gray hasn't found a wife. Then librarian Amelia White appears, claiming Gray fathered her ailing sister Daphne's youngest child. The accusation's groundless, but Gray makes a deal with Amelia: If she becomes his wife, Daphne and her kids will be cared for. Love isn't part of the plan, but Allison Leigh's The Bride and the Bargain (2) isn't terribly romantic -- the hero's a controlling boor -- but its slender plot is the main problem.
