Anthony Carter has not had it easy in life. In a matter of months, he lost his mother to cancer along with his much coveted spot in a prestigious doctoral program. Swimming in debt, he’s been forced to move back to his hometown in rural Montana and take whatever job he can find. A drunken weekend in Vegas is exactly what he needs to help him forget his problems.
A recent break-up with her boyfriend of nearly a decade has left straight-laced Liz Rockwell disillusioned with love and in desperate need of a vacation. She gets more than she bargained for when one drunken night at a Vegas bar results in her being married to Anthony. Embarrassed by her lapse in judgment, Liz is ready to make this whole night just go away. A quickie divorce seems like the best solution to their problem, until Anthony realizes who Liz really is.
Known in the media as the Candy Heiress, billionaire Liz is the answer to Anthony’s prayers. All he has to do is convince her to write him a check. Unfortunately, Liz is not one to be easily intimidated or coerced. Discovering the Rockwell family secret may be Anthony’s only hope. But the more time he spends with the intelligent and tenacious Liz, the more he realizes their chapel wedding may not have been such a drunken mistake after all…
How to Catch an Heiress was an enjoyable read, especially since this is Natalie Rios first novel. I’ve become pretty picky with who I want to read recently and I must say I was happily surprised by this new author. Natalie took a very cliché story of two strangers meeting in Vegas and getting married after a night of too much drinking and gave it a fun and sexy twist.
By the second chapter, the author had me hooked into the story. Being able to read the story from both POV was so much fun. You get to see more about both characters personalities, which are sexy, spunky and dominant in both their own ways. Natalie also did a terrific job with all the all of the other characters that makes this story not so cliché.
Go ahead and give this new author a try, you won’t be disappointed. Looking forward to her next book!
