The Marriage Arrangement by Jennifer Probst #BlogTour #BookReview @jenniferprobst @InkSlingerPR

Happy Sunday! Getting this out a little later than I was hoping… my daughters boyfriend was here installing my new smart thermostat (now I need to figure out how to hook it up so it will work with my Alexa) it is much needed as it is supposed to be 92°F today in Southern California, the heat is on!🌞

Speaking of hot… today I am on the blog tour for this spicy hot little romance of a book, you can find my full review below!

 Today we are celebrating the release of THE MARRIAGE ARRANGEMENT by Jennifer Probst. This is a novella in the Marriage to a Billionaire series and it is part of 1001 Dark Nights.




From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Probst comes a new story in her Marriage to a Billionaire series. The Book of Spells returns in this sparkling addition to the series!

She had run from her demons…

Caterina Victoria Windsor fled her family winery after a humiliating broken engagement, and spent the past year in Italy rebuilding her world. But when Ripley Savage shows up with a plan to bring her back home, and an outrageous demand for her to marry him, she has no choice but to return to face her past. But when simple attraction begins to run deeper, Cat has to decide if she’s strong enough to trust again…and strong enough to stay…

He vowed to bring her back home to be his wife…

Rip Savage saved Windsor Winery, but the only way to make it truly his is to marry into the family. He’s not about to walk away from the only thing he’s ever wanted, even if he has to tame the spoiled brat who left her legacy and her father behind without a care. When he convinces her to agree to a marriage arrangement and return home, he never counted on the fierce sexual attraction between them to grow into something more. But when deeper emotions emerge, Rip has to fight for something he wants even more than Winsor Winery: his future wife.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

~My Review~

4 Spicy Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

A spicy little book that is a prequel to this entire series…. it also explains the origin of the book of spells… A beautiful romance set in Milan…. filled with love, spice, food, and wine….

Kat has been licking her wounds from a bad break up in Milan…Rip has been working hard at his job at a lovely winery….Rip is devastated to find out he cannot take over the winery when the current owner retires, it is a family business… The only way… marry the owners daughter Kat… The problem Kat is nowhere close to wanting to be involved in a new relationship…. but Rip heads to Milan incognito….

I really liked both these characters… they were both a little broken and a little flawed, but I really wanted them to find their HEA… was so curious to find out Kat’s reaction to Rip’s real identity…. and would they be able to find real love, even though they both had been so very hurt? Would this be a marriage built from convenience or love?

Such a lovely romantic read…. and can I just say this book was filled with some absolutely divine food and wine, made me quite hungry!

Recommend to fans of romance, this author, this series, and wine🍷

*** many thanks to the author for my copy of this book ***

Stay cool, Berit 💛

The Weekend Spa Break Tour

The Weekend Spa Break

Friendships Online Series

Part Two

After finally meeting in person at the publishing party of the season, Constance and Estelle are determined not to let their friendship return to mere virtual champagne bottles and uploaded pictures of food.

It’s been a busy year, and Constance feels it’s time to reward herself with the spa break Estelle gave her for Christmas. Naturally, Constance wouldn’t dream of taking anyone other than Estelle, and this will provide the perfect opportunity to bond with her new chum.

As the excited pair spend some quality time together, they realise it’s not just writing books they have in common, but something that goes much deeper. After a few Jacuzzi sessions, facials, pedicures, and a massage by sexy Senior Therapist, Julio, everything seems to be peachy until an unexpected visitor turns Constance’s weekend of bliss … on its head.

A two-day spa break.

Sparkling water on tap.

And the perfect massage.

But who’s rubbing who up the wrong way?

~My Review~

4.25 luxurious Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟.25

This is the second story in a three-part series of short stories, and it was absolutely delightful… it also can absolutely be read as a standalone, I believe you get a really good idea of who these characters are in this book… The premise behind the entire series is people becoming “friends“ online…. this is something I have thought about myself… being part of the book community and having met so many people through my book blog and Goodreads…. people I would truly consider my friends, they may not know what the inside of my house looks like, or what high school I went to, but I communicate with some of my online friends more often then my real life friends…. an interesting thing to ponder, but I consider online friends real friends…

This book focuses mainly on Estelle and Constance… when the girls decide to take a spa vacation… they find out they have much more in common than being authors, Especially when it comes to their sons…. it was fun to see their friendship grow stronger and you just know they are going to be friends forever….

There was something about this book that made me feel as though I was at the spa with Estelle and Constance, and believe me I wish I were…. it sure did seem like a delightful place to visit…. this book just was a pleasure to read from start to finish…. and the ending… did not see that little twist coming… what is in store next for these girls? And what is in store for the rest of the crew? we did get little snippets of their lives via Instagram in this book… cannot wait for the next book in this little gem of a short story series….

Absolutely recommend when you are in the mood for a quick getaway red…

*** thank you to the author and Rachel at Rachels’ Random Resources for a copy of this book ***

Cheers! Berit 💛
