GENRE: Contemporary Romance
BLURB: Unemployed Keira Callahan decides to try her luck at the casino before delving back into job hunting. As she walks through the casino, she bumps into the most handsome man she’s ever seen. When he asks her to dinner, she doesn’t hesitate. As she learns Cade Tyndale’s story—he needs to wed or lose his British estate, her impulsive nature rears up and she agrees to marry him and move to England for one year. What does she have to lose except her heart to the impossibly handsome Earl of Barrett?
“Forget it, Elizabeth. I don’t see how I can pull it off,” Cade Tyndale, the fourteenth Earl of Barrett, said to his twenty-three-year-old sister. It saddened him to see the frown on her pretty oval face. “Besides, eligible young women don’t pop up out of thin air these days. I fear the worst, that Edward will indeed inherit the estate even though I’ll keep the title, Earl of Barrett. What’s a title without the estate? I won’t be in charge of making any decisions about how the income is spent. Those decisions will fall to Edward. We must resign ourselves to it.”
Elizabeth shook her head vigorously, her blond hair flying out around her head. “Cade, don’t say that. We’ll figure something out,” she said, turning and staring out the window of their ancestral home.
“It’s not fair. Why does it have to be like this?”
Cade walked to her and wrapped his arm around her shoulders, giving her a gentle squeeze. “I know, but that’s what the will states. There’s no contesting it. If I could have changed the terms, you know I would have done it.”
She turned into him and buried her face in his chest, soft sobs escaped her throat.
He stroked her hair while holding her tight. “Please don’t cry. It won’t be so bad.”
“Perhaps a ball,” Elizabeth said.
“Yes, of course. Young women love balls, and you’ll be able to find a suitable wife.”
Cade gently grasped her small hands within his. “Stop.”
“Please stop. There will be no ball. I cannot find a wife like that. There is no fairytale ending here.”
Cade shook his head. “I’m sorry, Elizabeth, but there’s nothing more I can do.”
Tears welled again in Elizabeth’s blue eyes before spilling down her cheeks. “Won’t you keep trying?”
He tried to pull her in closer for a hug, but she ran out of the library. Cade watched her leave, then turned to gaze out the window. He was out of options to make things better for her and for the future of the estate. There was no way he’d find a bride in less than a week. It was hopeless, and Edward would inherit the estate.
Behind him, he heard footsteps and turned to see his valet enter. “Will there be anything else, sir?”
Cade shook his head. “No, Clifton. Let’s go. There’s nothing more I can do here. Besides, I’m looking forward to enjoying myself in Las Vegas for a few days.”
“Very good, sir. The car is waiting.”
Keira meets Cade in Las Vegas while she in there visiting her sister. She is having a lucky night on the town and is Cade’s good luck charm also. When she hears he is about to lose his home and England estate as he has to be married in next couple of days she offers to be the bride he needs for a year and day. It doesn’t hurt he is easy on the eyes, an earl, rich, and a good person. I loved the story line but it did seem to take them a while to get it together. Now Elizabeth, Cade’s sister, needs to find a man too!
