Do you believe in destiny?
An ancient coin can't bring true love. It's a myth--a story that entertains, but has no basis in reality, and Corinna Towers has little time for fairy tales. So when she loses the coin her mother gave her, it's just another heartbreak in a life filled with them. She has no illusions about her life, so when Stuart Grant asks her to pose as his betrothed for a handsome salary, she accepts his outrageous proposal.
Already the target of too many scheming mamas, Stuart Grant knows Corinna is perfect for his ruse--beautiful, intelligent and desperate. What he doesn't expect is how intriguing he finds her. What begins as a simple business proposition soon becomes reality. Can two people who have never believed in love learn to trust their emotions?
Surely the destiny coin is just a myth.

Here's what happened when a talented author transports you to the past. They manage to place you there literally and drive you crazy forcing you to turn the next page to get to the next part of the story, and to cause you to feel like your living the adventure, this book has action, adventure, mystery, drama, and the ability to plop you into the settings with the flip of a page. It's a token of a read. ;-)
Gabriella Anderson has the gift. After helping her cousin leave her intended at the altar to run off and marry the man she really loves. Corinna makes an arrangement to marry a man she hardly knows and doesn't really like (Stuart). Stuart and Corinna agree to make this a 'Matter of Convenience' for her to get away from her controlling and mean Aunt, and for him to fend off the mothers that are trying to get him to marry their daughters (he is very rich and handsome too). Then there are the scheming relatives and the long lost friend, the constant friction between them, not to mention the Destiny coin. This is a quick moving story that will keep you entertained from start to finish. You will laugh, and cry what more could you ask for in a book? Buy it, read it, and enjoy it! I certainly did!
Yes, Gabriella is my real name, and I love romance. Where else can you read a story of strong characters and have a happy ending? The Destiny Coin is an ancient talisman of luck that brings two people destined to share a great love together. When Corinna Towers loses the coin, it finds its way into the possession of Stuart Grant. How these two head-strong, stubborn people find their great love is the first story in THE DESTINY COIN trilogy. I hope you enjoy A MATTER OF CONVENIENCE. And watch for THE DESTINY COIN: A MATTER OF PRIDE in January 2001, and THE DESTINY COIN: A MATER OF HONOR in March 2001. Numquam tuas spes dedisce.--Gabriella Anderson
