THE PLAYBOY TAKES A WIFE
Meeting billionaire playboy Lucas Chandler changes Alicia Sanchez's life. His family donates a substantial sum of money to the orphanage where she works, then Lucas proposes that they marry and adopt one of the children. Alicia can't believe her luck -- before she learns Lucas married her to clean up his bad-boy image. That's not the whole story, but Lucas has some serious explaining to do to get Alicia's trust back! Crystal Green's The Playboy Takes a Wife (2) is a by-the-numbers marriage-of-convenience story. The characterizations are okay, but the motivations are all over the place -- and the emotional connection between Lucas and Alicia is tenuous at best.
