Audrey is sinking financially. She's trying to figure out how to send her younger brother to MIT with her small pay. Enzu is a billionaire with a problem. He needs a mother for his orphaned niece and nephew. He is prepared to offer the future "mother" to these children a high salary and a marriage proposal.
You see where this is going...
This is my first book from the Harlequin Presents line. I've only read their Love Inspired books before, which are Christian. Like Love Inspired books, this book was pretty predictable, unrealistic, and just a dash cheesy. However, there's something so charming about these books. They're like mindless entertainment. Nothing heavy. Nothing that one has to really think about. And I like that. They're just light, fun reads.
Million Dollar Christmas Proposal was just that. It was short and sweet. I enjoyed both of the characters and the romance they shared. Audrey was down-to-earth and likable. She gave up her fortune to raise her younger brother who is gay. Their wealthy parents disowned him for being gay and then disowned her when she chose to take care of him.
Enzu was also a likable character. He was a great love interest. Smart, caring, handsome, and rich. The only thing that wasn't believable was the story line. A billionaire paying a woman to marry him and raise his niece and nephew? But, that's what makes books like this romantic.
I'm giving Million Dollar Christmas Proposal 4 out of 5 stars.
