March/April Contest - Compliments of Harlequin Ambassadors - Maureen Childs

I'm a member of the Harlequin Ambassador program and have FOUR copies to give away of this book.  It's one of Maureen Child's earlier series, The King's of California.  One Harlequin Community member stated after reading MARRYING FOR KING'S MILLIONS
"Maureen Child has managed not only to tickle my funny bone but to tell a tale worth re-reading......She Snags the reader with a marvelous romance, a hero to die for and a feisty heroine any woman would love to have as a best friend."  Sunny Cole

Wed and bed one of his biggest client's unsavory daughters? No thanks. But the only way millionaire Travis King could get the man off his back was to marry someone else. So he handpicked his temporary and on-his-terms bride--hometown girl Julie O'Hara. The woman was desperate and should easily fade into the background. And, as per their contract, she'd do exactly what he wanted during their year of platonic marriage. Unless what he wanted began to change...


Maureen Child is a native Southern Californian who is still waiting for evidence that autumn actually exists. She's written 40 books since making her first sale in 1990, and is as excited about writing today as she was then.

When she's not writing, Maureen and her husband like to travel, and usually drag her parents along for the ride. There's nothing quite like a road trip with three people reading different maps and shouting instructions to the poor driver, Maureen's long-suffering husband. But all that traveling gives her a lot of research material for more books.

When she's at home, Maureen rides herd on a busy house filled with two grown children, their assorted friends, and the world's most confused golden retriever, Abbey. Abbey, unfortunately, is afraid of the wind. She knows something is out there, but she can't see it, and refuses to leave the shelter of the house alone on windy days. So look for Maureen on cold, windy nights. She'll be in the backyard, holding Abbey's paw.

Marilyn, I don't celebrate St. Patrick's day. However, if I plan to be out and about that day I may wear a green shirt. LOL
