So when her best friend signs her up for the hot new reality television show, Can You Beat a Billionaire, Bella accepts the challenge and hopes against hope she can win the ten million dollar prize. If she doesn’t, it’s bye-bye pet clinic and shelter, bye-bye Chance Creek, Montana, and hello to marriage to the billionaire for a year!Evan Mortimer, billionaire, can’t believe he’s reduced to competing in a television contest to win a wife. Unfortunately, it’s the only foolproof way to secure his position as head of Mortimer Innovations. At least he’ll be able to dump his “spouse” at the end of the year. He has no intention of getting hitched for life.Bella doesn’t expect her adversary to be handsome – or funny, or compassionate – but Evan’s all three, and he’s proving a tough competitor, too. When they end up sharing a tent – and a sleeping-bag – her body betrays her with a longing so deep it cuts her to the core. Still, this cowgirl must stay strong. If Evan uncovers her secret fears, he’ll use them to win the contest – and then he’ll own her for a year. She’ll be out of luck, out of cash, and stuck being Mrs. Mortimer until he kicks her to the curb. Too bad she can’t decide which is worse – winning the show and losing Evan forever, or losing the show and only being his temporary wife.Evan can’t believe he’s falling for the one woman who doesn’t want him. This cowgirl’s not impressed by his money, his name, or his inability to sleep in a tent with her for an entire night, but every look and touch she gives him sends his desire through the roof. With a director determined to use his claustrophobia to make him look like a fool, and an adversary so sexy he can hardly see straight, he’ll need all his savvy to come out on top. Too bad he’s going to lose no matter how this show turns out. If he beats Bella, he’ll destroy the first woman he’s ever loved. If he doesn’t beat her, it’s bye-bye Mortimer Innovations.Will either of them remember in time that it’s not who wins or who loses – it’s how they play the game that really counts?...

    3.5 Kitten Stars The cowgirl ropes a Billionaire was a cute read. Bella and Evan both were likable, but had flaws making them more realistic. Evan was a major sore loser and Bella had serious insecurities. The Can You Beat a Billionaire show was funny in how cheesy it was and at the same time how like real life shows it sounded. Bella and Evan's shit talking was silly and their pet names for each other hand me laughing and how stupid they where. Evan called Bella Betty Bumpkin and Bella called Evan Moneybuns. The director Madelyn had me cracking up with the way she kept trying to make drama because everything sounded so boring. I really enjoyed Bella's backstory. I also felt Bella and Evan had good chemistry. It was cute how they start and have a relationship under the watchful eyes of all the cameras. The ending was so sweet. I really enjoyed What Evan did to get the girl. This book was a great easy going, lighthearted, sweet read!

    Okay, so you can't think about this one, you just have to dive right in and enjoy it while the getting's good. Once you're done you will think too hard about it and suddenly it will go from a five star read to a three. You'll notice that it wasn't just a hot little story that kept you plenty entertained for a day or two, but that there were fact discrepancies throughout the story (is she winning 5 million or 10 million, is it a 10 day challenge or a 5 day challenge), that our cowgirl really isn't even anything close to a cowgirl and that our hero changes his mind more times a toddler.Still it's a free read, and it had me sucked in to all of its Survivor/Naked and Afraid glory. Not to mention some hot tent scenes. And what Twilight, Edward, Jacob and Bella love triangle loving person doesn't enjoy a good tent scene?So for this one I have to call it like it is. It's not the finest piece of English literature, but it's not the worst. For every moment that made my eyes roll, there was one there to make me all swoony too. If you like your romance cheesy and don't really care about how good the editing is, admit it, you're drinking and reading on the beach anyway, then go for it. It's free, it has it's moments, just don't think too hard about it.

    I read this one as part of The Red Hot Lovers Box Set which is a variety pack of romances by eighteen different authors. Cora Seton was a new to me author. I was eager for the fun setting of a reality show competition involving the billionaire and the country vet. If she wins, she gets enough money to keep her vet practice and animal shelter open, but if he wins, he gets the requisite bride to keep his family hi-tech invention and development business from going to his brother who will turn it into something else. It was a contest of wills and a class difference romance all rolled into one entertaining read.The story is part of a series, Cowboys of Chance Creek, about characters from the same small town, but it can easily be read as a standalone.The story opens with Bella Chatham realizing that she will soon lose her business and all the animals she has saved because she is putting out more money than taking in. Bella feels the pain of failure, loneliness and isolation that come from a huge mistake in her past that her whole family blames her for, and the uncertain future when all is gone. But then things take a twist toward the exciting when her receptionist and friend shares that she might have entered Bella in a TV show contest and well, the producer and staff are arriving that very day to begin. Bella will win four million dollars if she beats another contestant, a billionaire, at several challenges, However, if she loses, she must marry this stranger and stay married for a year. No pressure!Evan Mortimer only has a month left as stipulated by his grandfather's will to get married or forfeit the company to his brother. He has worked hard to build it up and takes pride in the innovations they produced to better the world and he won't let it all go so his brother can turn it all in another direction. Evan has an absolute phobia about letting anyone get close to him so winning a wife is what he decides is his only viable options. How hard can it be to beat a hick who can't even keep a country veterinary business going?The sparks fly when Evan looks down his rich nose at Bella and Bella proves that there is at least one woman not interested in him for his money. They are forced into close contact and never allowed a moment's privacy between competitions. Somewhere along the way, understanding begins as they learn more about each other and both realize that they might stand to lose a great deal even if they win, but their reasons for the win haven't changed. This one seems like a light, fun read of sizzling attraction and exciting competition on the surface. It wasn't long before I realized that there was an unexpected depth to the story because of their heartbreaking pasts. Evan comes across as a real jerk from the beginning, but as his past is revealed and his real fears come out, it humanizes him. Being with Bella gentles his harsh edges, eases his jaded outlook, and makes him willing to open up for the possibility of a true relationship. Bella is a bleeding heart for animals and is awkward around people, but then when her past comes forward, it all makes sense. She also learns to soften her stance and realize that Evan might have reasons for being the way he is just as she does. She also learns to see the past in a different light when Evan prods her to see it from the eyes of an adult. With all that, this story became a little something more and I was glad for it. Their equally compelling needs to win were a nice touch and kept me wondering how they could ever possibly get together. The competition served to bring them close in ways and broke down their inner barriers. They were quite the passionate pair and quite competent in finding a way to get around the constant cameras for a bit of nighttime sport in the sleeping bag.So all in all, I found the story an engaging read and I would definitely read more from this author. The fun of the competition setting, the depth of the character's development, and the romance were all strong positive factors that I think would appeal to Contemporary Romance fans who like opposites attract and a bit of spice.Additional Note: Last I checked this one was free at Amazon along with the first book in the series.

    I really loved this one! It was a little bit like a low key survivor between two contestants. Honestly, I don't see how any of it was legal, and I don't know why the producer kept threatening legal action when she was harassing and doing illegal shit to get what she needed and why Evan didn't turn around with his wealthy little brain and threaten her with his legal team, especially when he knew they didn't have the money for the show anymore he's clearly more wealthy and they'd bend to his demands.Anyway, basically if she wins she receives 5 MILLION dollars (ridiculously unrealistic prize pool) and his prize is she has to marry him for one year... anway, so instead of lowering the poor persons winnings after a whole heap of them won in previous episodes that season, they decide to try rig everything in Evans favour. Now just saying, again, illegal, and they could have sued the shit out of the company after the show. They spend the whole week filming and stuck in a tiny one man tent together which i didn't understand because they want Evan to win but purposefully play on his claustrophobia in the cable car and the tents every night? How would that help you win? And there's a heap of silly tasks of finding crap and of course the last day there's a horse related task and she's got a phobia of horses and the producer spooks the horse and pretends like she did nothing to ruin her chances and it legit made me so mad this chick was so dangerous. You know how bad she'd be sued if that horse had hurt her in any way? As if you'd be that crazy! Not only would you be fired but you'd never get a job producing again! Then she throws a kitten in front of them in a race to go drown hoping Bella throws the race to go save it? What?! You couldn't edit that out! You'd legit look CRAZY and people would go right off on the animal cruelty. My mind was legit blown.Anyway, besides how much I thought the producer was stupid I LOVED the story, and if I looked past the stuff I couldn't quite believe, whether that producer was desperate or not, it was really engaging and I enjoyed every minute. SUPER different feel to the last few books because it's not really set in Chance Creek (they're in a forrest in Canada) but it was also a nice change from all them muscly cowboys riding horses because it started to feel stale in terms of characters personalities.

    Modern Erotic Annie Get Your Gun. The song goes "I can do anything you can do better". Evan and Bella are two great characters who are stellar competitors. Their reality show match-up is a real nail biter that I will not spoil. I did not have many expectations for this book. The writing was very eloquent and mind-startlingly descriptive. I could really go to these places as the locales were being painted in words. I would recommend this book to any woman who likes a great love story between equals. These were two exceptionally bright, attractive and charming people who found each other, solved some of their issues and came together in spite of only one of them winning the competition. I loved the way love changed both of their short term and long term goals and dreams. An unforgettable modern fairy tale!

    The Cowgirl Ropes a Billionaire5 starsMy favorite in the series so farBella Chatham is about to lose everything. Having worked hard to become a vegetarian she’s determined to save as many pets as she can and she can’t seem to turn any of them away. Now her make shift animal shelter houses hundreds of unwanted pets and she’s fighting tooth and nail to keep them all fed and happy in hopes that one day she will be able to find a home for all of them. Her time is running out though because her bank account is almost nonexistent so when her assistant Hannah secretly signs her up for a reality TV show, she finds that she really doesn’t have a choice. She needs the money and while she may not know a lot of the wilderness, she’s fit from bending and lifting animals all day every day. She quickly finds out that winning isn’t the problem though, it’s what happens if she loses. Not only will she lose her practice and the majority of the animals will be put down, she will also have to marry said billionaire.A clause in Evan Mortimer’s family owned company states that he must be married before the end of year otherwise he will relinquish the company to his brother. With only one more month to go, he’s desperate, so he has his assistant call up and book him on the reality TV show where the winning person may win 5 million dollars but if the billionaire wins, he gets to choose his prize and his prize will be a wife! Evan has serious commitment issues because it seems that no matter how many women he dates there are none out there interested in him as person. They are only interested in his money and what he can do for them. Winning this show will allow him to gain a wife, set up one hell of a pre-nuptial and then divorce her a after a year. After a few days with Bella though, he’s not sure that he should try to win. Bella obviously needs the money just as bad as he needs a wife. As the game goes on and the two become closer what will happen when both secretly want the other to win or do they?While this reality show sounded extremely cheesy and the games were almost beyond ridiculous at times, I loved the chemistry between Bella and Evan. Both of them harbor phobias brought on by childhood traumas but both of them are strong individuals that are trying to make a difference in the world. Bella by saving animals and Evan by saving people. It becomes obvious early on that the TV show is against Bella winning and I was a little surprised with the way that it played out to be honest. I mean would a reality show really stoop that low to throw a show? I don’t believe so because I would think that they would be sued but who knows, I’ve never been on one nor to I ever plan to.

    The Cowgirl Ropes a Billionaire is book 4 in the Cowboys of Chance Creek by Cora Seton. Bella Chetham is the “pet” vet. She takes care of people’s pets while her brother takes care of the larger animals. Although they do not share a practice and usually not many civil words, he is still her brother. Bella also shelters animals and tried to find places for them to live. She cannot bear to have any of the animals killed. She is going under, financially, having to feed all of the animals she does. She is close to losing her practice and her secretary. Evan Mortimer, CEO of Mortimer Industries, has to find a bride and marry her before the month is out or he loses the business to his brother. Evan wants to venture into “green” industries but his brother wants to make more money. Evan is determined not to lose but he doesn’t have a good candidate for his wife. He doesn’t date much and then only for short periods of time before he leaves. His chances don’t look good. Along comes the TV show “To Catch a Millionaire”. It is designed to pit a regular person (person A) against a millionaire (or more). If person A wins, he/she wins $5000. If Person A loses, he/she has to marry the billionaire and stay married for a year. Hannah, Bella’s assistant, puts in the application for Bella and presents it to her when she is chosen. It is the chance of a lifetime; but Bella is still hesitant to leave her business for a week much less be on television. However, with the help of Rob and Morgan Matheson and others, she reluctantly agrees. She immediately regrets her promise and the legal obligation the contract she signed put forth. She is off to win the $5000. Evan’s assistant talked him into doing the show and since he is an outdoorsman himself, he feels confident he will win, especially when he sees petite Bella. He is determined to win to keep his business and does not stop to think about the attraction he feels towards Bella. Now he faces a week of being with Bella and fighting those feelings so he can win. If he wins, does he really win? Or, should he fake it and lose? Which would win him Bella’s love?

    This is the fourth installment in the Cowboys of Chance Creek Series and it is just as awesome as the others. Actually, I think this one is my favorite out of the series. It is exactly the kind of book I want to read after a long taxing day – a light-hearted, funny, mind-less read! Hold up, maybe I should include my definition of “mind-less read” if a book it so good I can get lost in the pages and not have to think about anything but the characters and the story as it unfolds, it to me is a mind-less read. I appreciate when the story line is on course with not a lot of problem solving for the reader – my life is one big multi-step problem solving situation – so anytime a book is written well enough for me to get lost in it – is a winner, winner! And this book is definitely a winner!You will fly through this book as it is written in an easy to follow simplistic way. The story unfolds naturally and is paced very well. Although, I must say, I did think Bella and Evan got a little too cozy quick, fast and in a hurry – but you know it is what it is, ha! The story line itself is very unique. With reality TV swirling around like mad in our world this book was very relatable and it is certainly the type of situation that could actually happen — and honestly probably already has (you know some situation different details). You will absolutely fall in love with the characters of Bella and Evan. They are warm, funny, and loving people who have had tragic events in their lives that have changed the way they naturally behave and react to people and situations. But as I am sure you can imagine five days in the wilderness will certainly break you down to your natural state like nothing else will. It was fun to read and see the comradery develop between Bella and Evan, as well as the friendly badgering. Seton did a great job letting you know the two characters genuinely like each other and have a good time around one another.This book is just perfect – if you are looking for a lovely fun read this is it!Rating: 4.5Heat Rating: HotReviewed by: A.

    1-2-3, roll the cameras!Evan, a billionaire in search of being able to run his family's company never thought it would be so difficult to assume his right after his father's passing. As it turns out, there were a few hoops he needed to jump. Funny how the old man could still terrorize him from the grave. In need to find a wife, Evan seeks out a slightly more unorthodox way of doing so. After all, even billionaires like things for free, right?Bella, the animal lover, veterinarian, the animal rescuer... If only life had been kind to the woman. After a series of losses that spanned from her childhood onward, she was now losing the one thing that meant the world to her: her veterinary practice and animal shelter. But how could she get the funds to save both, herself, her receptionist's job as well as all of those suffering and homeless pets?Someone with a cruel sense of humor sets Bella up on a reality TV show. It should have been simple right? Not! "Can You Beat a Billionaire" begins to film with Evan having his own agenda--that elusive wife that'll help him maintain control of his family's company. What none of them expected through the snide comments, the derogatory name calling, the poking and the director from hell was that their attraction would persevere through their intense five days of filming.All I have to say about this book is that Cora Seton once again never ceases to amaze me. I swear, she only gets better and better with every book! I found myself often shaking my head, laughing, grinning and simply clutching my chest in shock, suspense, even awe while reading this one. With reality TV being so huge these days, I love the fact that Seton has used that premise in a refreshing kind of way. Not to mention, her use of words and writing style may be simple but it does the job at peeking interest, sucking you in, and keeping you enthralled from her first words to the very last. I can't wait to see what's next!

    this was a fun book. there was seriousness and the moments in the tent with Evan and Bella hubba bubba need a cold shower but the overall feeling of the book is light and fun.evan needs a wife. why? so he can keep his place in the company and do good in it. How does he plan to get one? a tv show. Yup a tv show. Except evan has some issues. Like claustrophobia even when cuddling a woman. When he goes into the contest he is confident that this is what he needs and that he will win. He was kind of a lonely douche but as we get to see him more and more he is a sweet kind guy who does have thoughts of others. He is layered with many thoughts and dreams. It is just that he is complex. He does develop feelings for Bella and this is confusing for him especially when he doesn't know how to reconcile them with all that is going on. He even does some incredibly unselfish and beautiful acts for Bella. Bella is wary though.Bella is a kind and compassionate woman. A vet who can't turn away a animal even if it costs her everything. solution: win the money to stay open and heal her family on a tv show. complications? you betchya. She is afraid of horses and isn't very outdoorsey. That doesn't matter though for she is gutsy and determined to win. Evan rubs off the wrong. He comes off as arrogant and self centered. As the contest goes on she see a side of him she didn't expect and falls hard. Not hard enough to blow the contest though.A fun fast paced book that will have you laughing at the banter, crying at the pasts and seeing love at its finest.

    The Cowgirl Ropes a BillionaireThe Cowboys of Chance Creek #4by Cora SetonReceived an ARC for an honest review. Bella Chatham just wants to care for family pets and unwanted animals, small animals. She can't work with livestock and horses. Nope. No way. She needs money to do this though. How can she get the money she needs? Enter a TV reality show "Can You Beat a Billionaire?" Win the contest, take the prize of Five Million Dollars and help the pets she loves so much. Sounds good. Right?Evan Mortimer, billionaire, just wants to lead the family company into the Green. Green living that is. They already have plenty of the other green, but more won't hurt. Only problem is, he has to find a wife by the end of thirty days or the company goes to his younger, married brother. He could just go buy a wife, be he doesn't want to stoop that low. He only needs the wife for one year. How can he get a wife by the end of thirty days? Enter the Reality TV show "Can You Beat a Billionaire?" Win the contest, win a wife for a year. Divorce said wife after that year and move on. Easy Peasy! Right?I loved the way Bella and Evan sparked off one another from the moment they met. And, usually where there are sparks, flames are not far behind. Even with Madelyn blowing all the smoke she can between them every chance she gets. If one wins does one lose or can they both win? Reality TV, such a blast!I love Cora Seton's stories. I can't wait to read "The Sheriff Catches a Bride", coming soon.

    What a good story! It flowed nicely and I really enjoyed the main characters and there fast, but sweet romance. The premise of the story is different and I think that is what I enjoyed about it. It made the silliness of it make sense.Bella needs money and she needs it desperately or she is going to lose her veterinary practice and animal shelter. After a terrible accident when she was younger, she has always felt like she disappointed her family and was to blame for the hardships they faced. Why should losing her practice be any different. Until her friend secretly signs her up for a game show that could get her her life back...or forced into marriage for a year! What? Evan needs a wife and he needs one yesterday! His future as the head of the family business depends on it. There is a hidden clause that states he just has to marry for one year...then he can get divorced, keep his position and move on. He is no good at commitment. He has his own issues to get past and being trapped with a wife is not going to help. Necessity gets him signed up on this game the contest...the prize...a wife! Easy right? This story gives us the humor of it all, the ridiculousness of a reality show and the start of a relationship that two people desperately need. At first for their own selfish reasons, but in the end they realize they need each other to survive. I really enjoyed this book...give it a chance you won't be disappointed.

    Evan Mortimer, San Jose Billionaire, needs a bride. In order to remain in the drivers seat of the family company, he must get married and stay married for at least one year. Evan approaches the TV reality show "Can You Beat A Billionaire?" with the idea of an approved by him contestant. The stakes will be if he wins, she marries him for one year and gets sent back to her life at the end of that year. If she should win, she gets 5 million dollars. Bella, Chance Creek Veterinarian, needs money to support her no-kill animal shelter. If she doesn't get some money soon, she'll have to close it down. Her friends fill out the entry forms and Bella gets a call to be on the show. Will she marry the billionaire or will she become a millionaire?Fantastic story! At first, I thought Evan was going to be an obnoxious, egotistical rich guy but he soon changed my mind. All Bella wanted to do was to right some wrongs and help the animals. The painful memories behind Bella and her family are tragic and they are heartbreaking. I loved all the various emotions in this story. This is book #4 in the Cowboys of Chance Creek series but it can absolutely be read as a stand alone. Thank you Cora Seton for another great adventure in Chance Creek.Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    I really enjoyed this story. I've watched reality TV shows before, but this was the first time I had read about people being on a reality show. Evan was a billionaire. and he needed a wife. Bella with her big heart was a vet, and ran a pet shelter. She was on the brink of losing the shelter because she just couldn't end a animal's life just because the pet had no home. The cost it took to save the animals was overwhelming. Bella and Evan competed against one another. If Bella won, she won five million dollars. If Evan won, Bella would agree to be his wife for a year. Bella fought hard in each challenge. She knew she had to save the pets. Along the way Bella, and Evan fell in love. It was a sweet story. At the end, when Bella was speaking to her father, and her brother I got choked up, and almost cried. When Bella was a little girl, her dog died. It was a accident. The accident tore the family apart. It was heartwarming how the family forgave each other. This was a story with a lot of twist along the way. It was a fun read.

    I found this story hilarious and rage inducing. The banter between Evan aka Moneybuns and Bella aka Betty Bumpkin is great and very witty. She put him in his place a few times and they tormented each other almost constantly for awhile. It's amazing how fast you get to know a person when you are stuck with them for 5 days in the wilderness with no real way out without giving up your chance change things and looking like bad. Evan and Bella made a wonderful couple when they stopped pretending to be fine and worrying about the future and finally faced the past and deal with the present. Working together kinda they worked through their deep seated fears while having a camera in their faces all the time. The producer, Madelyn infuriated me. I found myself wishing I could tell her off or punch her in the face. Good TV my butt!!! She should have chosen a different career. It's a fun, light hearted, fast paced read.

    I really liked this book! More so because I got it for free when it was on special on amazon. Damn it I hate the free books because I often like them and then get sucked into buying the rest of the series! Anyhow...Evan is a reclusive billionaire who has never met a woman who wants him just for him, not his money. Bella is a struggling get who looks after pets... Despite living in the middle of ranch-land. In order to retain control over the family company Evan must get married and feels he has no other option than to sign up to reality show to win the right to marry Bella (or, if she wins, she will win the money that will save her vet practice). The two have an instant attraction and some of the challenges prove to be very challenging indeed, especially for Bella. The back story is a little convoluted but once the two are on the ground and participating in the contest, the book is a fun romp through rural Canada.

    I received this as an ARC for an honest review in the box set called Red Hot Lovers: 18 Contemporary Romance Books of Love, Passion, and Sexy Heroes. I also bought this in 2014 but never found the time to read it. Now I may or may not post spoilers, read on if you dare.I have to say this story had me laughing from start to finish. It was very hard to put down between Mr. Moneybuns to Betty Bumpkin! It was a highly entertaining story that kept me on the end of my seat to see what next would happen. From the director to the mains it was a laugh the whole way. From facing childhood fears to seeing those fears as an adult and not a child any longer! It also showed how if we spay and neuter our pets then less of them would be in kill and non kill shelters. Which is a huge concern of mine. I absolutely loved this book and hated to see it end!

    Evan Mortimer appears to have everything he could ever want well maybe not everything. Evan is wealthy billionaire that needs to find a wife to keep control of his company.

    Local Vet Bella Chatham has no idea that her assistant Hannah Aston has signed her Bella up to be on a TV Reality Show, "Can You Beat a Billionaire". Bella learns that if she can win the show she will also win $5 million dollars and that would help her make her dreams come true. She could get out of debt, get all her families ranch lands back, pay for her animal shelter and practice and take care off all the unwanted animals that she has taken into her practice.Evan Mortimer, Billionaire needs to get married quick so that he can keep his place as head of his families company. All he has to do is stay married of a year and he thinks he can win the game show so that his competitor Bella, will have to marry him and stay with him long enough to keep control of the company. I like this game and this couple.

    Bella is a small town country Vet. She also runs the local shelter. I felt such a kinship with Bella. She is me. Down on her luck and her life a mess, she is thrown into a competition to win a million dollars on a show, against a billionaire. Lucky for her that billionaire is sexy, hot, and there to win her hand in marriage. I loved this story, and broke down in tears during many of the memories that flew though bella and Evans mind. I really loved this story and it will definitely be one of my go to re reads thoughout the years. I am excited to read more of the novels based on this town and see more of the secondary characters find love. This free nook book was definitely worth downloading.

    This one is a little bit different then the other books in this series as we aren't seeing whats going on in one of our cowboys lives but whats going on with one of Chance Creeks Cowgirls... One with an amazing heart. Though I have to admit it was a bit strange and different not to be in the middle of Chance Creek for most of this book, but at the same time it was nice to see how the characters could deal with things in the rest of the world. Evan is a bit of prick at the beginning, but quickly starts to change his way of seeing things and in the end I came to really love him. Bella is strong and determined. And add to the fact that she has all these things she went through when she was young and survived is awesome.

    Bella was the local vet but she was about the Lise everything. Why? Because she couldn't say no when people dropped off strays or abandoned dogs and cats. She sheltered, treated and fed them but got no help unless people donated funds. What could she do. Meanwhile Evan Mortimer was down to finding a wife or the company would go to his younger brother who saw profit before helping the world. So they both found themselves on a reality show. If she wins she gets five million dollars. If he wins, he gets Bella as a wife for one yeR which is all he needs to satisfy the trust. Will they do it? And who will win?

    Sweet, hot, fun...I really enjoyed this book. They both had something to lose...Bella her vet clinic and Evan his company. Both are determided to keep what they have so they enter a reality tv show to win what they need to make it possible. If Bella wins she gets the money needed to keep her vet clinic and if Evan wins he gets a wife for a year. Neither expected to get what was to come...for both of them to win??

    Another entry for my Ridiculous Titles collection. Sigh. First, this is nowhere near how TV gets made. Second well, it just wasn't that good.
