Marry Me For Money
by Mia Kayla.
Audience/Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: 5/6/14.
Bethany Casse’s dream of leaving behind her small town turns into reality when, straight out of college, she lands a job at the nation's biggest baddest bank in Chicago.

Work brings her into contact with two men who are as different as night and day. Brian Burcham, a co-worker, is gorgeous and everything Beth has ever dreamed of. He is respectful, sincere, has a good work ethic, and is definitely husband material.

Kent Plack, heir to Plack Industries, has no interest in having a relationship with any woman that lasts longer than overnight. He's spoiled, lazy, and a bona fide man-whore, and Beth is surprised that an unlikely friendship forms between them.

When Beth’s small-town problems and deadbeat mother follow her to Chicago, Kent offers a solution that would help him out in return. He asks Beth to marry him for money, but the solution is not as easy as it seems, especially with picture-perfect Brian in the mix.

An oh so cute excerpt...

“It’s showtime,” Kent said as he took my hand. He entwined his fingers through mine, pulling me toward the house.
I looked down to our hands and wiggled my fingers. Holding hands with Kent for the first time felt strange, foreign. We’d only linked arms before. Even at the club, he’d grabbed my wrist, not my hand, to lead me through the crowd. The action was so intimate that it felt awkward, and I knew he felt the same because he flexed his fingers and rewrapped them around mine.
He pulled me forward. “Come on, let’s go.”
I froze in front of the door and jerked us both to a stop.
“You can do this. Come on, Beth. Just take my lead.”
Kent punched in a code and walked into the house. “Beth, come on. You have to pretend to like me. Stop looking like you’ve eaten something awful. Giggle like girls do when they are holding hands with the man they love. I’m not sure where my parents are, but you have to look happy. You need to laugh or flirt or something,” he whispered into my ear. “Come on.”
I looked at him and raised my eyebrows “Hee, hee, hee, hee,” I said, emphasizing every word. Maybe my goofiness would calm my nerves.
“Better,” he said, giving me a slight smile. His eyes searched the room for his parents as he shifted from one foot to the other.
“Okay, now, it’s your turn,” I said, turning to face him. “Come on, do it. It’s your turn to laugh like you’re holding hands with the woman you love,” I said, mimicking his words, fluttering my eyelashes. “Come on.” I poked his side with my free hand and laughed.
“Ha, ha, ha, ha.” Both dimples emerged on his cheeks as he turned his head to face me.
“Hee, hee, hee, hee,” I returned. “Now, you have to slap your side like this.” I slapped my hip with the hand he wasn’t holding while I accentuated the exaggerated giggles.
Kent shook his head as his chest rose and fell with genuine laughter. My laughter stopped when Kent’s mother and father stepped into the foyer. His mom’s face lit up as she watched the both of us interact while his father’s face was unreadable.
Kent’s laughter died down, but a small smile still remained as my reaction turned serious. I felt my heartbeat in my ears, and I was barely moving. I realized I’d stepped slightly behind Kent to hide. He jerked our entwined hands to pull me forward, so we were in line.
