Overview

Julianna Elizabeth Waters promises her dying father to save the family estate at all costs, even if it means marrying for money, and not love. After years of taking care of her sick parents, she's become afraid to push past the walls of her Newport mansion and live.

Jack Woodward has it all - wealth, power, and prestige, but discovers a contract stating he must marry within three months or his legacy will go to his cousin, a man he loathes. He leaves England and disguises himself a gardener, intent on finding a woman who loves him for himself, and not his money and title.

When he spots Julianna on the cliffs, he vows to claim her at any cost, but she is intent on marrying a wealthy husband. He may be disgusted with her values, but he craves to initiate the spinster into the dark world of pleasure. They strike a bargain: she will belong to him every night and do anything he commands. Lust turns to love as the nights unfold, and suddenly the terms change.

But when his cousin comes to town, disguising himself as the perfect husband with a plan to steal Jack's legacy, Jack forces her to choose: love or money. A wrong choice throws a startling chain of events in action. Can love and truth triumph or will it be too late?


Reader Alert!: Julianna Elizabeth Waters is an old fashioned spinster desperate to break out of her sexual constraints. When her sexy gardener offers her a naughty bargain to belong to him, body and soul, she does things she always imagined of. Being dominated, controlled and spanked have never felt so good...

To My Readers: When I visited Newport, Rhode Island and strolled the famous Cliff Walk, I looked at the gorgeous mansions high above the ocean and wondered what it would feel like to live there. I suddenly had a flash of my heroine, standing in the pouring rain, looking to escape her own emotional and physical prison. Later on, when I took a sunset sail, my hero appeared beside me: a true sailor who loved the water; alone; searching for his soul-mate. My story was suddenly born.
Julianna and Jack have much to teach each other about trust, letting go of control, and connecting on a deep physical level. I hope you enjoy reading about their journey as much as I enjoyed writing about them.

Meet the Author

JENNIFER PROBST

I’ve always wanted to be a writer, and I knew my calling was romance from the time I was thirteen years old. My life took on an edge of excitement I never experienced before, and as I grew older, I learned valuable lessons from those feisty heroines and alpha male heroes. I live in upstate New York, in the beautiful Hudson Valley. I have a deep love for the mountains, chocolate, Frank Sinatra, and a good book. I loved writing Masquerade, and look forward to many more stories with Red Sage Publishing. I share my life with my wonderful husband and our two canine children, Bella and Lester. They’ve all suffered through late nights with me as I work. I look forward to hearing from all of my readers, so please check out my website, jenniferprobst.com.

    Sex, Lies and Contracts is a contemporary romance with an intere

    Sex, Lies and Contracts is a contemporary romance with an interesting plot of lies and deceit and money and lack of it. The plot was entertaining with enough lies to mix the characters right up, which it did too, and made the novel an interesting read, even just to know what happened with Jack and Julianna. It was missing a little bit of reality I think and warmth of character but still a good read.

    The romance was both dominating and sweet, the bedroom scenes had plenty sizzle and control and the sweet side of romance was evident in the way Jack and Julianna got to know each other. The romance was missing just a bit of reality and some sweetness, but it seemed to build up to it.

    Probts writing was good and her ideas interesting which contributed to a generally good book, with some really steamy love scenes and one horribly twisted villain and one heroine breaking out of her shell.

    You'll like this if... you like rich guy pretending being poor to catch true love, and if you like your heroines coming out of their shell emotionally and se*ually - and having one twisted villain hunting the heroine!
