Description
From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Marquita Valentine, comes the Brides of Holland Springs, a sweetly sexy series set in the town that readers have come to love.

It's not easy being the woman most likely to be married to a fortune hunter, but Kate Von Lichtenstein has a plan to deter even the most determined gold digger. She'll take a page right out of her favorite historical romance novel - with her own unique spin. She'll marry a man of her choosing before the public gets wind of how much money she actually inherited from her grandparents. And who fits the bill better than the sexy and charming American businessman, Noah Sawyer?

After selling his share of the successful tech company, Noah Sawyer lost everything when an unscrupulous realtor stole the money he intended to use to purchase a huge swath of land worth millions. So, when a chance meeting at a mutual friend's wedding with a hot brunette turns into a mutually beneficial business arrangement, Noah jumps at the chance to salvage his business.

However, the sexy land developer has no intention of his marriage to Kate being in name only...

Barely 100 pages, the twist in this story is that she is an aristocrat who has recently come into billions, watched her childhood crush marry someone else, and decides to take control of her own destiny by reaching an arranged marriage with the guy from Texas, now a builder-developer in North Carolina so she won't be forced by her parents into a loveless marriage. Premise is ok, main characters fairly well developed, but there are choppy transitions between the story plot points, formulaic British snobbery, and graphic sex scenes. OK for a fast read, but could have been more if secondary characters, backstory, and plot points were more fully developed. Two stars.

How can this trash sell so much? Several of the reviewers already said that this book was full of sex and explicit at that! The author struggled to get to 100 pages of sex it seems and to top it all rushed the ending. The worst part is that the editing and grammar were atrocious especially since even the last line had errors in it. Now if an author cannot deliver the last line of the book flowlessly they do not derserve to be called an author.

I love this new series by Marquita Valentine.  Kate Von Lichtenstein needs a husband fast, but she wants it on her terms not her parents. She also wants to keep the gold diggers away so she goes looking at of all places the wedding of the man that she has loved since she was young. Noah Sawyer has nothing to lose by taking Kate up on her offer. He will gain a beautiful wife who he enjoys spending time with and financial backing for his business since he lost everything when he trusted someone that he shouldn't have. Kate has their marriage all planned out like a business arrangement whereas Noah sees their marriage a little more traditional. Up close and personal is more to his liking.  I'm definitely looking forward to reading more books in this series. I was given an ARC for an honest review. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.  Lori P

The Billionaire Bride by Marquita Valentine is the first in the Brides of Holland Springs Series. This book is a twist of the billionaire needing to get married because the billionaire is a woman. Kate Von Lichtenstein has inherited a fortune. She is always hounded by paparazzi because of her family connections. She knows it will get much worse when the world finds out just how much she is worth. She knows fortune hunters will be after her. She decides she wants to get married on her terms. It also helps her get over her childhood crush who just got married. She decides Noah Sawyer fits the bill. He also needs money to help save his business. Kate and Noah come from opposite backgrounds. Can a marriage that begins as a business transaction turn into something else? Can Kate find true love in Holland Springs with Noah? I enjoyed this book. I look forward to more of the Brides of Holland Springs. I always love when Marquita Valentine returns to Holland Springs. I highly recommend reading her Holland Spring Series after finishing this book. You will get drawn into this little southern town.

Excellent quick read! Wonderfully written marriage of convenience story, with great characters that bring us back to Holland Springs! You don't have to have read the Holland Springs books to enjoy this one but if you have, the characters will be very familiar. Kate is very wealthy and tired of fending off the gold diggers. Noah is very successful but a recent misfortune has left him strapped for cash. When Kate approaches Noah with a proposition that will save his company he jumps at the chance. So theirs is a marriage of convenience. Who really has time for more? That is until you realize you really want more and want this marriage to be the real deal! I highly recommend this one.

Catching up with friends is one of my favorite past times. It is always nice to find out what they’ve been up to while you were apart. That is the feeling that I get whenever I read a book by Marquita Valentine. It is like coming home again and picking up right where I left off. With The Billionaire Bride (Book 1: Brides of Holland Springs) there is a reintroduction to characters met in some of her past stories and introduction to some that played small roles in former books of Ms. Valentine. Through it all the same small town values of family, love and heartwarming emotion shine through just as strongly. I received an ARC copy of The Billionaire Bride from the author for an honest review. I LOVED IT!
