THE MARRIAGE ARRANGEMENT Synopsis:
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 rating: 4 of 5 stars
THE MARRIAGE ARRANGEMENT is book #4.5 in the Marriage to a Billionaire series. It’s also a novella that’s part of the 1001 Dark Nights series but is a standalone.
Caterina is the sole heir to her family’s winery but when her engagement ends in disaster, she flees to Italy for some recuperation and TLC leaving her father to run the winery alone. Rip has spent the last year and a half saving the winery from bankruptcy but in order to keep it, Rip has to marry Cat. That has him going to Italy to bring back Caterina but will she agree to an arranged marriage?
I’ve not read any of the books from this series but it was easy to enjoy this one! Even though it’s a novella, Jennifer Probst did a great job fleshing out the plot and the characters. I LOVED all the imagery used in the beginning…it felt like I was in Italy with Caterina and Rip. I was also delighted with the touch of whimsy used to bring them together (maybe!). This whole little tale was sweet and sexy!
Rip and Caterina may have seemed to be opposites: Rip was everything dark whereas Cat was everything light. But in the end, the one thing that binded them together (besides their intense chemistry!) was their love for the winery.
This book is a wonderful afternoon read, easy and light with sweet characters and a fun plot. Told from dual POVs with a happy ending. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
