Silhouette Special Edition is a line of books that I have read and reviewed often on the blog. It is one line of novels that I have come to love to read and the author that I’m reviewing today is one of my favorites authors. She writes both for Silhouette Special Edition and Harlequin Blaze, which is another line that I’ve read and reviewed often on the blog. Crystal Green is an amazing author and though technically this book The Playboy takes a Wife is not part of her series The Suds Club it is about the older brother of the hero in Mommy and the Millionaire, which is her first book in the series.
The hero of the novel Lucas Chandler is a wild child and a wealthy heir playboy who is used to dancing with starlets and socialites until he had to dance at his own wedding. Lucas needs to clean up his playboy image into an upstanding husband for his company which his younger brother has been helping him with. His father has ordered Lucas to settle down responsibly—or else he loses his stake in the family fortune. In comes the heroine the beautiful and mysterious child-care worker Alica Sanchez the woman who he has suddenly married and the little boy that they have both adopted. Yet when the seemingly happy couple went about town, it was easy to see love was blooming. Had the handsome prince found the perfect Cinderella? I think he has even though Lucas and Alica have a bumpy road ahead of them if they want to make their speedy marriage to work. I enjoyed reading this novel and I was excited when I found out that Lucas’ younger brother would get his own story. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
THE PLAYBOY TAKES A WIFE $ 4.99 (Book 1)(249 Pages)
FROM BILLIONAIRE BACHELOR…TO DEDICATED DADDY?
Wild child and wealthy heir Lucas Chandler used to dance with starlets and socialites—until he had to dance at his own wedding! New York society was stunned when the former playboy announced his sudden marriage to the beautiful and mysterious child-care worker Alicia Sanchez—and his newly acquired title of daddy to their adopted little boy.
Some said the marriage only occurred because Papa Chandler had ordered Lucas to settle down responsibly—or else he loses his stake in the family fortune. Yet when the seemingly happy couple went about town, it was easy to see love was blooming. Had the handsome prince found the perfect Cinderella?
