Raising her sister’s child has left Rachel Bern penniless and desperate. Since her orphaned nephew’s family has ignored her attempts at contact, she has no choice but to bring him to the Marcellos’ Venetian door.

Losing his brother devastated Giovanni Marcello. Rachel’s news is another bombshell, and he can’t believe that she doesn’t have an ulterior motive. One kiss should unravel her deception, until their smoldering chemistry has Gio reconsidering…

Gio exacts a high price for acknowledging his heir, but Rachel cannot help but succumb to his outrageous demands. Even if it means walking down the aisle!

Rachel has done all she can for her orphaned infant nephew, but she needs help from his father's family. After being ignored, she takes desperate measures, but Giovanni is not amused and turns the tables on her and calls her bluff. Strong personalities at war and passions ignite. Gio's solution: a marriage. But Rachel has always wanted to marry for love--she's torn between her wants versus the needs of the young child. Gio is a driven businessman and seems to lack romantic emotion. Somehow, they must find common ground while accepting the truth of their siblings, and somewhere along the way, they might even find love--if each can learn to give a little. This romance is full of fiery desire and just what's needed on a cold winter's night!

An Enjoyable Read to Start the New Year! Rachel Bern was desperate. She was left to care for her orphaned nephew and is desperate to make ends meet. If only his father's brother would offer a bit of help, she thinks she could do it, but he won't acknowledge the baby's existence. Desperate times call for desperate measures, so Rachel puts everything on a trip to Venice to force his hand. Obviously, best-laid plans and all that, and her plan backfires. Gio is convinced Rachel is cut from the same cloth as every other woman he has met: a gold digger with a price. The attraction in instantaneous and Gio didn't count on how much Rachel really does love her nephew and how much of his mother she had become. There were ample twists, fun dialogue, and a few secrets to keep this couple on their toes. It was an enjoyable read, a nice romance to start the year reading!

Rachel Bern desperately needs help. She's raising her late sister's baby on her own. She has tried to contact her orphaned nephew's family. Giovanni Marcello, the man in charge, has ignored her. She and Michael travel to Venice where she leaves the baby At the palazzo. No way the arrogant man can ignore his nephew. Her plan falls apart when Gio kisses her passionately in public. That did it! I was caught up in their love-hate attraction. Neither trusts the other, but they can't walk away. No one writes characters like Jane Porter. Gio is the ultimate alpha, but in his heart he wants a woman who will stand up to him. Rachel is a dedicated to her job and cares for her family. She's waiting for the perfect man. She doesn't believe that she's capable of attracting a man like Gio. These two must find a compromise that protects the baby. Gio wants Rachel to be his wife, but she afraid that he doesn't love her. Can she sacrifice her dreams? Their chemistry is powerful and their dialogue sizzles. Can the reveal what's in their heart? The beauty of Venice is the perfect setting for romance. I enjoyed watching love triumph. His Merciless Marriage Bargain is a satisfying romantic escape.

Loved this book. What Rachel and Giovanni wanted was for the best of their nephew but could they come to an agreement. Both were hurt from the untimely death of their siblings. Giovanni has the perfect idea, lets get married if he could only get Rachel would agree. The sexual chemistry is hot between them. They are both very strong willed individuals. Loved the back drop of a romance in Italy. I highly recommend a glass of Proscecco while reading.

The book had me from the first chapter, I was reading it over the Christmas holiday so my reading was interrupted often, but with the way the names fit the characters it was easy to get right back into the story. It was quite the emotional journey I went on with Rachel and I felt much angst for her and Giovanni wondering if they would go through with the marriage and if they could find happiness. Loved the way the book came to a delicious end that left me all content.

This is the story of Rachel Bern and Giovanni Marcello. ~"Conveniently Wedded, Passionately Bedded"~ ~"The Italian’s shock heir"~ Rachel has been raising her sister's child after her sister passes. Rachel is penniless and desperate for help. She tries contacting her orphaned nephew's family, but they have been ignoring her. Left with no choice, she shows up on the doorstep of the Marcellos' in Italy. Giovanni is devastated at the loss of his brother. Rachel showing up with her nephew is certainly a big surprise. Gio thinks she has an ulterior motive and is being deceptive; possibly a gold digger. He thinks one kiss would uncover her lies, but their chemistry is smoldering and he isn't sure what to think. Gio sets a high price for acknowledgement of his heir. Rachel cannot help but do his will even with his crazy demands. She is afraid it might even mean agreeing to a marriage of convenience. Will love and the happily ever after come? Can hope make fairy-tales come true? Maybe in Venice they would. Love this storyline. I love the descriptions written all through-out the book: the people, the places, the events. Another great one by the lovely Jane Porter.

His Merciless Marriage Bargain by Jane Porter. I've read past books by Jane Porter and this one hasn't disappointed me. This storyline pulled me in from the first page of the book. The characters and dialogue were perfect for the storyline. I loved the setting of the story being in Italy. I look forward to reading other books by this author.

This was a very interesting story. Rachel and Giovanni were great characters. Both stubborn and yet both wanting what is best for their orphaned nephew. However, Gio is also highly concerned about publicity and his image due to some business deals going on and he doesn't want his employees affected because of bad press affecting the business. It was a very interesting plot with some interesting twists and turns. Gio is a very powerful man and is used to getting what he wants, but Rachel loves her nephew very much and will do almost anything to make sure he has the best life possible. I really liked this story.

A baby. A scandal. A fake marriage. And a perfect happily ever after. All Rachel Bern wanted was a little help raising her nephew, Michael, after her sister’s death. Michael’s father had also died, so he was no help. So she headed Venice to see Italian billionaire, Giovanni Marcello, in hopes that he and his family could help out. Rachel arranged for the paparazzi to be outside the Marcell palazzo when she went to meet Giovanni. But the tables were quickly turned when Gio came up with a plan of his own. Though it left Rachel frustrated, she had a hard time saying no. This was an emotional roller coaster of a story. Giovanni seemed so stubborn and set in his ways at first and Rachel was just a nice girl with insecurities. But together, they brought out the best in each other to finally give Michael a good family. The romance was intense and the details in the story were very descriptive. I could just imagine myself being whisked away down the canals in a gondola and seeing all of the sights. It was hard to close this book and walk away. I needed more. My favorite quote: She’ld woken him, and the desire consumed him. It had been far too long since he’ld felt emotion, or hunger, and he felt both now. He wanted her. And he would have her.

After her sister’s untimely death, Rachel Bern is struggling to make ends meet as she plays the role of guardian to her nephew Michael. Desperate for some help, and having received no response in her attempts at reaching the late father’s family, Rachel is left with no other choice than to travel to Venice in hopes that the billionaire Marcello family will lend a hand. But she’s not prepared for the turn of events that happen once she’s there or the heat between her and Giovanni Marcello. And when he shocks her with an offer of his own, to marry, she’s finding it hard to say no. A page turner of epic proportions, I had a hard time setting this book down. And though I rarely reread a book, this one was so good that I may just have to give it a second go round!
