“Loved it! ‘The Marriage Bargain’ had all the ingredients for the making of an amazing story: Childhood friends reunited, Marriage of convenience, Love spell gone astray, opposites attract and great chemistry.” ~ Sara, Harlequin Junkie Reviews
“I just had to read Jennifer Probst’s book after all the buzz about it on Twitter and Amazon and Goodreads, etc, and especially after I’d got an eyeful of that super-sexy cover…. And I can happily say I wasn’t disappointed. Yes, what’s inside the book is as sexy and gorgeous as that cover.” ~ Heidi Rice, USA Today Bestselling Author

“I am a huge fan of the whole ‘marriage of convenience’ storyline and I believe that Jennifer Probst put an interesting spin on it to make it fresh, fun and sexy – with a hint of sass!” ~ Romancing the Book

“I loved this book! Loved watching two people so opposite, who had no intention of falling in love, fall head over heels! I’m still smiling.” ~ Robin Bielman, author of Worth the Risk
