The Fortune Hunter – Jasmine Haynes

Haynes, Jasmine. The Fortune Hunter. (New York: Berkley, 2007). ISBN – 9780425219171.

Main Characters: Faith Castle and Connor Kingston

Description from book:

If she wants to realize her lifelong dream of having children, heiress Faith Castle had better find a husband – pronto. But there are two roadblocks on her road to happiness: she knows no eligible men, and she’s not exactly Miss California.

Then she meets Connor Kingston. He’s yummy. He’s available. And he thinks she’s sexy . . .

But he’s also honest. After a kiss that leaves them hot and bothered, Connor offers to marry Faith, but purely as a career move. It’s far from romantic, but it’s as good an offer as she’s going to get. Each has a caveat, though. She requires his fidelity – and he wants a no-holds-barred sex life.

From their wedding night on, they get more and more adventuresome – and Faith starts feeling differently about herself and her body. And somewhere in the midst of ecstas, she comes to know the most exciting aphrodisiac of all – love. Now, if only there was a way to make him succumb to it . . .

My Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book. Faith and Connor were wonderful characters – who worked so well with each other. From the moment that Connor followed Faith outside and caught her peeping on another couple during an intimate encounter, I was hooked. I could have done without the intrigue at the family business, but then there wouldn’t have been any reason for Connor to push Faith into marriage.

Read first in November 2007
