Always read the fine print! Tycoon Vincenzo Tomasi needs a new nanny for his niece and nephew by Christmas. And the million-dollar salary on offer will be more tempting than anything in Santa's sack! Audrey Miller already works for Enzo and loves children, and stepping into his family would dramatically help her own. What Audrey doesn't know is that Enzo expects the right candidate to become his wife—and high on the requirements list is sexual compatibility. While she's lusted after her enigmatic boss for years, will innocent Audrey risk everything to explore her irresistible attraction in the most unlikely interview process ever?
Unexpectedly saddled with his orphaned niece and nephew, Vincenzo “Enzu” Tomasi seeks to set up the perfect family for them. He believes he can buy a woman to “love” the kids as well as share his bed! Young Audrey Miller, wanting to fulfill the dreams of her young charges, points out to her tycoon boss, Vincenzo, that love can’t be purchased. Undoubtedly, he will procure that woman to accept the monies for the position and share duties of the marital bed, but she won’t love the children like Audrey can. However, Vincenzo insists that he take her out for a spin before signing on the dotted line. Will virginal, romantic Audrey accept his conditions at the risk of damaging her heart and responsibilities, or will the gamble be worth the risk?
Million Dollar Christmas Proposal is a heartwarming Christmas tale about two individuals who know where their priorities lie and pursue a means to that end. Vincenzo and Audrey were truly a match made in heaven without any overly dramatic misunderstanding to cloud the issues in Million Dollar Christmas Proposal.
Both Enzu and Audrey had horrible people that set examples for them early on, but they found that they were able to get away from that and still find happiness in Million Dollar Christmas Proposal.
Million Dollar Christmas Proposal was filled with snapshots of Enzu and Audrey and their times together, showing how well they meshed—two sides of the same coin. There weren’t overly dramatic moments and misunderstandings in Million Dollar Christmas Proposal, because the leads were more mature and seemed to know exactly what they needed to provide a fulfilling life for others—finding love between them was just a bonus!
