NEW YORK, Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Promising to be the next guilty pleasure for women, author Jennifer Probst's The Marriage Bargain (Entangled Publishing) releases in print on September 4. The e-version is already steaming up best-seller lists, moving more than a half-million copies in just six months as the #8 bestselling Kindle e-book for the first half of the year and #9 on the New York Times' combined print and e-book fiction list.
The Marriage Bargain follows an impulsive bookstore owner, Alexa Maria McKenzie, who tries to save her family home by casting a love spell. But she never planned on conjuring up her best friend's older brother—the powerful man who once shattered her heart. Billionaire Nicholas Ryan doesn't believe in marriage, but in order to inherit his father's corporation, he needs a wife and needs one fast. When he discovers his sister's childhood friend is in dire financial straits, he offers Alexa a bold proposition. A marriage in name only with certain rules: Avoid entanglement. Keep things all business. Do not fall in love. The arrangement is only for a year, so the rules shouldn't be that hard to follow, right? Except fate has a way of upsetting even the best-laid plans.
The Marriage Bargain is part of Probst's Marriage to a Billionaire series, a trilogy of romance novels which offers heartfelt, sexy and funny stories. The second book in the series, The Marriage Trap, will release October 4 in print and e-book, and the third book will be released in November. Variety recently wrote that The Marriage Bargain "heats up in wake of '50 Shades' fever," and the book is high on Hollywood's acquisition radar.
The print version of The Marriage Bargain will be available nationwide in mass market paperback for $7.99 and trade paperback for $12.99. For additional information, go to www.entangledpublishing.com or www.jenniferprobst.com.
