Publisher's Summary

Julian de Laurent needs a temporary wife. Camille Chandler needs a job after he inadvertently gets her fired. If she agrees, he'll pay her five million to marry him. It's just a business deal, but neither could have foreseen what happens next, especially Camille, when she learns he's capable of stealing her heart.

Pleasent Romantic Diversion

Okay, you read it 10 times and each time it seems just as cliché as the one before, you know guy hires girl, they fall in love, endure problems with families, blowup at the end and eventually overcome and live happily ever after. You know this on page two! Does that stop you from reading? No. You just listen because want it to be true.

This book is good, with the appropriate drama and romance. You want the smug people to be put in place and you get your wish. Give it a read.

Prince charming with an ulterior motive?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Good story... almost spicy. Could easily have notched the story up a few pegs, all the material was there but very under developed. Still I found it enjoyable. Just.... as if the real substance of the story was passed over as if the story was developed enough not to need the details. Its a shame since it had all the promise of being wonderful!<br/>Unfortunately the narrative was very good except for one glaring fact... the female voices were almost unbearably awful!!!!

Lovely narration!!!

What did you love best about The Marriage Bargain?

The story was lovely and flowing. The de Laurent family is full of strong characters and Camille is very likeable!

The excellent plot and believable premise and the love story!

Awesome voice! Now all I want to do is listen to this book again.

GOOD & SURPRISING

Would you consider the audio edition of The Marriage Bargain to be better than the print version?

I wouldn't know. That is why i'm a member of audible because i don't have time to sit down & read a book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked both main characters, but Camille more than Julian. He was a jerk to her when she really didn't deserved it.

What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

The french accents made me chuckle, otherwise he was good.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No not really. I was able to stop & do other things with no problems. I really like the books that I can't stop with just the car ride.

Any additional comments?

I bought it in the bogo sale of buy 1 get 1 free & was really surprised. I don't know if i would use a credit on it but definitely buy it if it's on sale. My only problem was the ending I don't think I would have taken Julian back so fast. A little groveling never hurts!!

What did you love best about The Marriage Bargain?

That Camille fall in love with him the first time she saw Jillian. But she didn't want to believe that she loved him.

Who was your favorite character and why?

No. This my first time listing to William Dufris's. And I got to say I love reading along with him in this book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Camille and Julian made me laugh and cry at the same time and he's family are amazing and so is her best friend. I just love everything about this book.

Any additional comments?

Just read this book and the audio. And fall in love just as I did.

Really enjoyable

I really enjoyed this story. and I enjoyed listening to William Defris's narrating. the story though predictable was very cute and had a heart warming effect for me.
I loved that Julian was able to stand his ground against "papa" and was able to win over Camile.

Romance can be cute

Who doesn't enjoy a story about an arranged marriage turning into r the real deal? I did. Ms. Edwards wit and characters surprised me. The narrator was very good.

Narration is not good.

Delightful & Enjoyable!

Where does The Marriage Bargain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Marriage Bargain was an easy listen that took me into "fantasy." It wasn't full of explicit sex, violence or "F" bombs. It was clean and made you aware of the desires of the heart.

What other book might you compare The Marriage Bargain to and why?

Much like Cinderella, it was delightful to think, "What if that were me?"

What does William Dufris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration brought the story to life; Dufris was excellent.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes...and I'm ready for the second in the series.

Any additional comments?

The book left you feeling good.
