Book Description:
A marriage in name only...

To save her family home, impulsive bookstore owner, Alexa Maria McKenzie, casts a love spell. But she never planned on conjuring up her best friend's older brother—the powerful man who once shattered her heart.

Billionaire Nicholas Ryan doesn’t believe in marriage, but in order to inherit his father’s corporation, he needs a wife and needs one fast. When he discovers his sister’s childhood friend is in dire financial straits, he offers Alexa a bold proposition.

A marriage in name only with certain rules: Avoid entanglement. Keep things all business. Do not fall in love. The arrangement is only for a year so the rules shouldn’t be that hard to follow, right?

Except fate has a way of upsetting the best-laid plans…

What did you think of the book? (Why this book?, New Author? Read more by author? Keeping? Thoughts on Hero? Heroine?)
The title and cover were what drew my attention to this title. I was pleasantly surprised by the writing, story and characters. Probst did a wonderful job writing about two people coming at a marriage for different reasons with different expectations.

Some of the best aspects of this story really are the real conversations and "arguments" Nick and Alexa have throughout the book. Both really got a taste of the compromises that really come up in a marriage along with the personality and moods of the other.

Wonderful romance. I'm hoping Nick's sister has a story
