Camille Chandler is a tabloid journalist whose career is right on track–until her boss sees a curious ad in the L.A. Trades.
Wanted: Single actress for an extended gig abroad.
France’s mega-rich playboy Julian de Laurent is up to something and Camille’s boss expects her to find out what. Who knew the eccentric gazillionaire was looking to hire a temporary wife?
When Camille refuses to accept Julian’s proposal–and secretly write a juicy tell-all about the de Laurent family–she’s fired and left financially destitute, forcing her to entertain Julian’s proposal for real. But what’ll happen at the end of the contract period, after Camille has spent six months as the wife of a man she learns is capable of stealing her heart?

About Sandra – I write in a variety of genres such as paranormal (mostly time travel and reincarnation), contemporary, and suspense. While all my tales hold an element of romance, my books often push the envelope and step outside the boundaries of conventional romance.
Today, Sandra’s going to interview Andre de Laurent, younger brother of Julian (the hero of The Marriage Bargain).
SE: Thanks for joining us, Andre. We’re all excited to hear about your life. What’s it like being the younger brother of a man like Julian de Laurent?
AdL: It really depends upon what kind of mood my brother is in.
SE: Do his moods fluctuate that much?
AdL: Only when he’s around Papa.
SE: I understand your father wants Julian to get married.
AdL: Not just married. He’s got the bride picked out and everything. (Andre visibly shudders).
SE: You are opposed to marriage?
AdL: Oh, no. It’s fine—for other people. I just don’t see the point in trying to build a life with a woman when she’s bound to desert me. I might as well just go out every ten years, find a woman and ask her if she wants a house.
SE: Wants a house?
AdL: Instead of marrying and going through all the heartache that’s bound to follow, I’ll just cut through the red tape and give a stranger a house every few years. It’ll save me heartache and money in the long run.
SE: That’s a pretty cynical outlook, Andre. How’d you get that way so young?
AdL: I’m sure Julian told you about our mother? I couldn’t stand the thought of making a woman that miserable.
SE: Both you and your brother seem to be carrying the weight of your mother’s demise on your shoulders. It wasn’t your fault, you know.
AdL: Oh, I know that. But I’d be a fool if I didn’t learn from her mistake.
SE: Point taken. So what are your plans instead? Are you going to marry your work?
AdL: No, I’m basically Julian’s gopher. That’s not a hard nor a detailed job. I simply do what he wants me to do when he wants me to do it. Not sure why Papa sent me to all those expensive schools. I’ll never utilize the education he bought me.
SE: Maybe you’ll start your own company one day.
AdL: Not likely. I prefer to let my brother handle the wheeling and dealing. I’d much rather do without his responsibility.
SE: Well then, I guess it’s a good thing you weren’t born first.
AdL: (laughs) You said it.
SE: So, do you think there’ll be a wedding soon?
AdL: For Julian? If father has his way. But it’ll have to wait until Julian get’s back.
SE: Where’s he going?
AdL: He’s got some business trip to America coming up. But I suspect that Papa will push him into an engagement soon after he returns.
SE: Better Julian than you, right? So what will you be doing while your brother is away?
AdL: I plan on having a little fun along the Italian Rivera! Are we done here? I’ve got a plane to catch.
SE: Sure. I do want to thank you for dropping by. I hope we can do this again sometime.
AdL: I’d be honored.
