Todd Aston III's reputation as a playboy preceded him; he wore power as seamlessly as he wore his custom-cut suits. But Marina Nelson had promised her sister - who was marrying Todd's cousin - that she'd help him plan the perfect wedding. And somehow, between tasting cakes and modeling wedding dresses, Marina discovered that she wanted Todd - and that Todd wanted her. She was powerless to prevent the inevitable.
Yet the harder she fell for Todd, the more she realized that he didn't trust marriage-minded women...which made her grandmother's offer of a million dollars to whichever Nelson sister married him a big problem.

I ordered this little jewel in 2012 and somehow missed reading it. I would certainly recommend it. It has an interesting theme that many people could relate to. The narrator drew me into the story and I felt connected to the characters. Todd and Marina's fear of commitment almost ruined their lives. Although it has detailed intimate scenes they are integrated into the story; unlike some books with sexual content that have little story to them. It is a realistic romantic fiction.
I cannot think of any at the moment.
At first I did not know if I liked her or not, but as I continued to listen I found she had a way of drawing me into the story and feeling connected to the families involved; a talent that makes her a competent narrator. I would listen to her again.
Not a particular moment, but the whole of Todd and Marina planning Marina's sister, Julie's, wedding. The results from the menu tasting, crashing a strangers wedding to hear their orchestra, etc..
I liked the closeness of the families involved.
Well-written romance with great characters and witty dialog. This is the third story in a series, so I recommend reading the first two before this one.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
For the price this was a very cute story. I liked the characters and the simplicity of the stories. This is the third of the series.
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
It was the ideal ending to the series and it gives the ultimate happy ending...
It's short, light and fast pased... Only comparable to the other two book of this series.
As with any good narrator, you get a wide range of emotions and imagining the scene is much more vivid when a good narrator is telling you the story.
Well yes but because it was short, not because it was so fascinating.
Read the series in order:
The substitute millionaire
The unexpected millionaire (my favorite of the series)
The ultimate millionaire.
Yes I would, but only if they like a lot of getting down to business. The books are quite detailed sexually
Gabra always stays in character and to me that's important
I really liked all the books, but make sure you keep them in order if you are going to read them all. I accidentally went out in this set and it threw me at one point thinking she had written the book twice, but a little differently at first.
TWO thumbs up and download the other 2 Millionaire books by Susan Mallery. Three sisters, three millionaires lend to THREE sexy sweet books. LOVED all three. Buy THEM.
Thank you Susan Mallery for writing an entertaining romance book where the girl in the story is not a Neurotic, whining, self absorbed pain in the rear. I loved listening to this book.
I didn't read the print version so I cannot compare the two.
It would compare to any other little romance book. If you like reading them, you will like listening to them.
I thought she did an excellent job.
Of the three in the series, this one is probably my least favorite just because the story was not as strong with as much humor. Either way, it was still an enjoyable book.
the story line was good. The narrator could have been better. She ran sentences together makeing it hard to distinguish who was speaking. also used weird voice thingscfor some characters.
