THE SPANISH DUKE'S VIRGIN BRIDE
Javier Herrera has been groomed to take over the family bank. But he makes a mistake in hiring Angus Beresford to head the London branch. When it's discovered that Beresford embezzled three million pounds, his grandfather says that if Javier doesn't marry before he turns 36, he'll lose his inheritance. That gives him two months to find a bride. In walks Grace Beresford, who says she'll do anything to help her father avoid prosecution and quickly finds herself the bride of a hard-shelled man. He insists on sex not love; she says there will be no sex without love. Mutual antipathy meets electric attraction in Chantelle Shaw's The Spanish Duke's Virgin Bride (4), as this marriage-of-convenience plot spins off into an interesting, lively battle of wills.
