Publisher's Summary

In her hundredth book, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Brenda Jackson blends heated sensuality and drama into a dazzling new novel featuring one of her most unforgettable Madaris heroes yet.

One by one, Madaris' men have surrendered to the matchmaking schemes of Felicia Laverne Madaris, matriarch of the family. But Lee Madaris isn't letting anyone else control his destiny. He'll bring a bride of his own choosing to the family's holiday gathering - if his hotel's gorgeous new chef will agree to a marriage of convenience.

It's not just the chance to work at the Strip's hottest hotel that brought Carly Briggs to Vegas. Witnessing a crime in Miami may have made her a mob target. Though she's reluctant to complicate their working relationship, Lee's tempting offer is so hard to resist. And soon, desire is clouding their no-strings arrangement.

The danger that made Carly flee Miami is about to land at their door. So Carly and Lee must decide who to trust, when to let go - and whether a love they never anticipated is strong enough to pass the ultimate test.

Not the narrator for this

Carly and Lee hit it off right away. Out celebrating her birthday she meets the man that would soon become every thing to her and her to him. Moving to make sure he could prove he was in control of his own world Lee finds that sometime it about more.

There was some passion, chemistry, threats and danger. We even get to see some old Madaris family favorites. This years holiday celebration had more to celebrate.

Narrator Pete just did not do the job for me. The whole time I was want it to be over with. I love BJ’s books but this narrator took something from it. So I just was not as excited as I might have been. Always love getting a new romance with a little mystery, suspense and even some danger when reading a romance in the Madaris family and friends.

The performance was awful!

Would you be willing to try another book from Brenda Jackson? Why or why not?

Yes, I like her books, especially her series but the narration was terrible. It was very stilted and unsophisticated.

How could the performance have been better?

Find another narrator. Ezra Knight is one of the best narrators I've ever heard.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Madaris Bride for Christmas?

None the story was fine.

Great story. Narration, not so much

I loved the story of Carly and Lee but the narrator was a distraction. The staccato narration of his voice was irritating. It did get better in the end or maybe I got used to it but it was very hard to listen to. Great story line. I love the intrigue and especially the love and passion. Wonderful male lead, a true Maderis man.

I loved the book, but I did not order Audio.

Please cancel the purchase of Audio. I did not order it and have NEVER used it. I am charged for something that I do not use.
I read all of the books that I order, and do not listen to someone else reading. Thanks

an extended story line

this could have been told in a shorter time span. the ending was very rushed. other than that it was the typical quest to love story.
