Sneak Peeks by Jennifer Probst - Spotlighting THE MARRIAGE MISTAKE
This is NOT a book, but a compilation of covers, author’s notes and
sample chapters taken from the incredible career of NY Times Bestselling Author
of The Marriage to a Billionaire Series, Jennifer Probst.
I’ve believed in love and happy endings since I was young.
It never came easy. It took me twenty years of nonstop work and dreams
before I became a full time writer. I had to defend not only my love for the written
word, and my non-practical career choice, but also my fierce respect and
passion for the romance genre.
No matter. I let no one sway me from my path. Is it so wrong to believe
in hope? To understand it’s not about these stories all containing what critics
deem a formulaic ending, but the unique journey of each book and characters we
create and meet to push us, change us, and allow us to reach for something
That’s the type of writer I wanted to be. That’s the type of books I
wanted to write.
There’s humor in everything I write. Sometimes a bit zany, sometimes
laugh out loud, and sometimes so subtle it’s like a brush of a kiss across a
cheek. Barely there. But I believe humor is one important aspect I use to make
sense out of events and shine a flicker of light into a dark corner.
Carina Conte has had a crush on her brother Michael’s best friend, Max
Gray, since she was a teenager. Now she’s earned her MBA and come to work at
Michael’s new venture, America’s fastest-growing bakery empire. But some things
never change: her family still treats her like a child. With three drop-dead
gorgeous siblings, she’s still the ugly duckling of the bunch. And Max, the
company’s new CEO, still barely notices her.
Max knows Carina Conte is strictly off limits. But hot-blooded lust wins
out at a conference when the two share a scorching one-night stand—and are
busted by her mother! Now, forced by old-world Italian tradition into a
marriage he’s not ready for, Max is miserable—and Carina is furious. Her new
husband is about to realize that hell hath no fury like a woman transformed….
