THE SUBSTITUTE MILLIONAIRE - Susan Mallery


This is the first book in the series THE MILLION DOLLAR CATCH and a fabulous first book in the series. It's Ryan and Julie's story and a fun, passionate and very powerful read.

Julie is the oldest of three sisters and has problems trusting men. Her father comes and goes as he pleases which hurts her entire family, her one-time fiance was actually a married man and now her newfound Grandmother wants her to go on a blind date with her eldest millionaire nephew. The offering is $1,000,000 should they marry. However, Julie just wants to humor her Grandmother Ruth since they've just met so she agrees to go on the date.

Ryan, strong, handsome, smart hears from his cousin Todd that their Great Aunt Ruth wants Todd to go on a blind date. Ryan has just been hurt by a recent relationship and tells Todd he'll go in his place and teach the money grabbing woman a lesson. Ryan poses as Todd but doesn't count on Julie being so beautiful, charming, smart and witty. Their evening begins with sizzling attraction and ends in passion However, not so the next morning when Ryan reveals who he truly is and Julie throws Ryan out on his ear.

Fate, destiny? Call it whatever you want but Julie finds out she is pregnant with Ryan's child and this takes the reader on a rollercoaster journey one to be remembered for a long time.

I honestly can say I can't wait for the next book in the series as these rich and powerful men are going to have their hands full with the two remaining sisters....Willow and Marina.

Susan Mallery has again written an incredible series and this one being full of passion, humor, and sensitivity.


Book Description

Successful businessman Ryan Bennett had agreed to masquerade as his wealthy cousin for a blind date.

But from the moment Ryan saw Julie Nelson to the moment he should have said good-night, he was captivated and couldn't resist an invitation to share her bed. In the hazy afterglow of their heated lovemaking, Ryan confessed his true identity, claiming the passion between them was real despite his deception, but Julie wasn't buying it. Obviously she considered him the enemy.


Except now she was having the enemy's baby.

Julie Bonello, CataRomance

Susan Mallery has crafted a fast paced, racy and exciting plot with two very determined and well-matched characters. The blind date scene is one of the best I had ever read and the grilling of Ryan by Julie's sisters will have you laughing with its zany humour. The good news is that this is the first in a miniseries and you will definitely want to read on to what happens to Willow in "The Million Dollar Catch"!
