Publisher's Summary

In her hundredth book, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Brenda Jackson blends heated sensuality and drama into a dazzling new novel featuring one of her most unforgettable Madaris heroes yet.

One by one, Madaris' men have surrendered to the matchmaking schemes of Felicia Laverne Madaris, matriarch of the family. But Lee Madaris isn't letting anyone else control his destiny. He'll bring a bride of his own choosing to the family's holiday gathering - if his hotel's gorgeous new chef will agree to a marriage of convenience.

It's not just the chance to work at the Strip's hottest hotel that brought Carly Briggs to Vegas. Witnessing a crime in Miami may have made her a mob target. Though she's reluctant to complicate their working relationship, Lee's tempting offer is so hard to resist. And soon, desire is clouding their no-strings arrangement.

The danger that made Carly flee Miami is about to land at their door. So Carly and Lee must decide who to trust, when to let go - and whether a love they never anticipated is strong enough to pass the ultimate test.

The performance was awful!

Would you be willing to try another book from Brenda Jackson? Why or why not?

Yes, I like her books, especially her series but the narration was terrible. It was very stilted and unsophisticated.

How could the performance have been better?

Find another narrator. Ezra Knight is one of the best narrators I've ever heard.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Madaris Bride for Christmas?

None the story was fine.

an extended story line

this could have been told in a shorter time span. the ending was very rushed. other than that it was the typical quest to love story.

This is one of Brenda's best Madaris stories!

I read this over and over periodically since it was first published. All of the Madaris series are worth ordering on Audible, however.
Pete Ohms is THE BEST narrator of all time!!!!

Just Perfect

The story was a good bad great type. A loner & a well to do getting together and having a grand time with each other with no outsiders trying to break them up. Showing how all walks of life can be tougher & enjoy each other.

Sin city

Loved it. The love story was so beautiful. Carley mother and step father , so horrible. I liked that when the truth came out, Mrs. Jackson did not have them separated and mad with days apart
