Amber Wynters is on a mission to find a millionaire to marry – and fast. Her parents are nearly bankrupt and forced to sell the family home, a beautiful Tudor house that had been in the family for generations. And it’s all thanks to Amber’s ex-fiancé Rod persuading them to invest in his dodgy shares. So armed with a ‘How to Hook a Millionaire’ Book and a ten point plan, she sets off to hook herself a rich husband. Then she meets the drop-dead gorgeous Jed Curtess. The attraction between them is sizzling but Jed is only a hired hand on one of the millionaire’s yachts. Can Amber ignore her heart and follow her plan?
What They’re Saying!
“The rules at the start of each chapter were humorous when compared to Amber’s actions. Amber runs into Jed, literally, who works on his boss’ yacht. Amber feels freedom to be herself around Jed and asks for his help after revealing her plan to him. The romance may have developed quickly but it felt real in how they spent time doing the little things together and enjoying each other’s company. Jed was totally endearing to me and I felt his relationship with his sister made him an even better man. Since I am a dog lover, the scene with Tess was precious to me. I enjoyed The Millionaire Plan and will look for more books by Kay Harborne. I loved the cover.”
“The Millionaire Plan” is a modern twist on a “rags-to-riches” story, where the girl has to decide if she wants to marry for money or for love. Although the trope has already been played to distraction, the love triangle between Amber, Jed, and Randy teases the reader just enough to make it interesting, leaving no clue as to who Amber will choose. The developing romance between Amber and Jed is also well done, with both characters helpless in the face of their mutual attraction. Ultimately Amber must discover where her heart truly lies and decide if the cost is worth it. Now who could resist a love story like that?”
