WIFE BY CONTRACT, MISTRESS BY DEMAND
Genre: Series, Harlequin Presents, Current Series Imprints
Wife by Contract, Mistress by Demand (4), by Carole Mortimer, centers on the forced marriage of Gabrielle Benito to her stepbrother Rufus Gresham. To inherit money from Rufus' father, they must marry and stay together two years, or they forfeit everything. Rufus agrees to the terms of the will and coerces Gabrielle to do the same. But despite attempts to deny it, attraction flares between the newlyweds, and Rufus at last sees his innocent bride as she really is, not as the gold digger he always believed her to be. Will he be able to set things right with Gabrielle before their contract expires? Mortimer injects freshness into a classic plot. Gabrielle and Rufus have a palpable chemistry when they spar and when they spark. You'll fall in love with them.
