His marriage of inconvenience…

Camilla Winthrop is about to do something she's never done in her life—she's about to ask a man to marry her. Not just any man. She hasn't seen Sam Flanagan in almost five years, after he coldly walked away from a passionate and intense two-week affair. Now Camilla is widowed and desperate…and marrying Sam is the only way she can protect their son. The son he never knew about.

A hugely successful attorney in Miami, Sam certainly never expected to see the stunning Camilla come through his door again. Nor can he ignore the desire heating his blood. But after she tells him her situation, Sam is furious. He'll marry her, but under his terms. And he'll take everything, including Camilla in his bed…unless she can find a way to thaw the millionaire's icy heart once more.

Erin: If after reading the blurb for this book you feel like you’ve read it before, you have. Many times, by many different authors. And while The Millionaire’s Unexpected Proposal by Jane Peden is a story we’ve all read over and over, this is a formula that works. A one night stand results in an unplanned pregnancy, woman keeps child and doesn’t tell father until years later when circumstances arise and she must face him. Man is unsurprisingly angry, but then the two fall in love. A misunderstanding, lie, someone from the past, etc., happens, thus threatening their bliss, but then things work out and they all live happily ever after.

This book pretty much follows that formula to the tee. There are some things to like about The Millionaire’s Unexpected Proposal. I liked Camilla Davenport, mostly. While I don’t really get why she hid the child for so long or try harder to find Sam Winthrop, but besides that she was likable. I liked her relationship with her sister. Things I didn’t like … Sam. He was pretty much a jerk throughout the whole thing, even when he was supposed to be all sweet and had forgiven Camilla. I just couldn’t get past attitude from the beginning of the book.

This book might work for some people, but for me, I found myself annoyed by the characters, frustrated by the predictable and flat storyline, and not all that interested in their HEA.

Erin is a book addict! She loves books of all kinds, but her favorites are Contemporary Romance or YA (and she reads both boy/boy AND boy/girl, sometimes even girl/girl!) She's been reading since she could hold a book in her hands and doesn't see that changing any time soon. Give her a Coke, kick ass tunes from her favorite playlists, and a book, and she's in reading heaven.

She's a Texan, though she drinks her tea plain and NOT sweet. She loves cheesecake, strawberry limeade's from Sonic and her favorite color is purple. In her books, she loves an HEA, but she never minds if the road is rough to get there, as long as the reward is worth the struggle.
