Read full description of the books:
I've been on a bit of a romance reading spree the last couple of weeks and A Bride for the Maverick Millionaire just happened to be the next one up on my pile of library books when I read it the other day.
I used to love the Harlequin Romance line, but over the last few years I've had a lot of misses when it comes to this line to the point that I might only read one or two of the titles a year. To be completely honest the only reason I really borrowed this book is because I saw that it was set in Australia and I just love romances set there.
While I went into this one with very low expectations, I was still dismayed to find that the book wasn't even mediocre. I finished reading it, but after the first 25% of it I found myself starting to lag and had to force myself to read what had the promise of being a cute, flirty and fun read. Unfortunately, while there was potential I just felt that the story fell way short of where it could have been.
I thought the plot was entirely too fragmented and rushed for my tastes. Now I know this line isn't going to offer me extremely compelling plots with amazingly created characters but it would have been nice if the story did not jump all over the place, switch pace so often I felt like I was in a car with a teenage driver learning how to put the car in gear.
The story focused around Rachel and Finn both dealing with issues relating to their pasts and I really did like Rachel, she was smart, funny and dealing with the loss of her baby as well as dealing the trauma of an uncaring husband. Finn's trauma isn't even trauma it's just Finn over thinking things and being a bit of a whiner in my opinion I just didn't see why Rachel fell for him. He was just so closed off it annoyed me.
The plot though is what really killed the book for me. It jumped around so much I just didn't like how it was laid out. It could have been pulled off so much better but then again this is the reason that I go into reading books from this line with low expectations.
The shame is that this was my first foray into this particular author's writing and I just found this romance to be lacking in chemistry, clear plot and poorly written characters. However, just because I didn't like this one, if I have the opportunity to read another of her books I will with the hopes that I'll enjoy it more.
This was definitely a case of this not being a book for me but I would recommend it to fans of the particular Harlequin imprint, fans of sweet romances and ones with a hint of adventure.

Read information about the authorWriting romance sounds fascinating. Huh?
I'm a writer. I'm boring. Day after day I sit behind a word processor making up people in my head. Why do I do it? I love it. My husband, Dave, gets up in the morning, puts on a suit and heads out into the ice and cold of Ballarat's winter. (Sadly I live in one of the tiny parts of Australia that qualifies as cold.) I make myself another cup of coffee, head up to my study, choose what music I want and sit and daydream. And I get paid for doing it. Hooray!
My first attempt at writing romance, 'Dare To Love Again', a Medical Romance, was published by Harlequin Mills and Boon in 1990. It still stands today as a monument to my family's ability to survive on cheese sandwiches and spaghetti.
Since then I've written over 80 Romances for Harlequin Mills and Boon, with more on the drawing board. (I used a pseudonym - Trisha David - for the first few Romances but suffered with a split personality and have since reverted to being Marion Lennox all the time.) In between romances, I've co-authored a non-fiction history, (I love local history) done the odd (very odd) spot of housework and done a heap of travelling - research :-)
I come from a farming community. You can probably tell this from my books. There's not a skyscraper in sight. I'm very much a pets person. Chloe and Harry were my constant canine companions for many years as I wrote, demanding walks and air freshener at frequent intervals. Sadly I lost them, and for a while I vowed not to get another. My heart was broken and my study smelled so clean! But.. The cat and I missed them so badly we weakened and bought Mitzi. Mitzi's a black and silver mini-schnauzer who makes me and the cat laugh. Expect to find her in future stories.
If you're interested in formalities, I hold a Bachelor of Commerce degree and a teaching diploma. I have a couple of kids and a huge extended family who look on me with affectionate tolerance. Marion? The crazy one who talks to people in her head... I've had nine nominations for the Rita, winning twice, and fourteen for the Australian Book of the Year. After years of thinking of my writing as a hobby I guess I finally now qualify as a `real' writer.
Thank your for taking the trouble to check out my web page. Now try my books. We might even end up having fun together. And write to me. I show my family - `See? Real people do like the things that go in in my head.'
