Catherine Spencer Creates a Platinum Novel
'The Millionaire's Marriage' is the best of Catherine Spencer's many fine romance novels. The plot is easy to relate to yet so ingenious. It is the story of a couple split apart by a misunderstanding. When they get together to pretend to be happily married, the adventure begins. Gabriella, the Hungarian bride of a Max, a Canadian millionaire, loves him so intensely. Yet Max cannot forgive her the circumstances that brought them to the altar. She counters his accusations by leaving Max and becoming independent via a successful worldwide career as a model. As the book starts they are reuniting after 18 months separation for the sake of her parents who are visiting them in Vancouver. Through flashbacks, all the delicious passion of their first love is contrasted against their discomfort at being together again. I could feel their irresistible attraction for each other. Max fought this attraction so resolutely. Gabriella fervently wished it were otherwise. What empathy their situation evokes. What humor and poignancy Catherine Spencer shares as she describes their sniping at each other yet all the while longing for each other. Their experience rings so true yet seems so regrettable. Their coping with the pretense of a happy marriage is so real. Max realizes his true feelings when Gabriella is in peril. The incident that threatens Gabriella's very life is described so authentically as one of the dangers of urban life. Gabriella's response to Max's reaction is a real surprise. The final chapter is the best ending imaginable. It is so realistic yet so incredibly romantic. This is a romance novel you have to read. Catherine Spencer always tells a fine story but this is her best ever. In conclusion, buy this book and read it; you will treasure it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
