RBP Presents~ Melanie Milburne's The Valquez Bride Release Day Blitz & Giveaway!
Thank you for stopping by today. I'm hosting Melanie Milburne's The Valquez Bride Release Day Blitz & Giveaway presented by Romance Book Paradise.
The Valquez Bride
Untouched Theodora Marlstone always wanted the fairy-tale wedding – a white dress and an adoring groom. Instead she’s walking up the aisle toward a marriage of convenience to outrageously attractive Argentinean Alejandro Valquez! He promises raw sensuality, not devotion, but thanks to her father’s will, Teddy must say “I do”….
Alejandro never wanted a wife, but his buttoned-up bride is a delicious present just waiting to be unwrapped. Beneath the white silk lies a woman who exceeds his wildest imagination, and it’s clear that this union will burn the very paper it’s written on!

Teddy Marlstone is outraged to find out she will lose her English manor house and country estate unless she marries traffic-stoppingly handsome playboy from the polo set, Alejandro Valquez, the man who snubbed her when she was an awkward, self-conscious sixteen year old. Teddy will do anything to put Alejandro off marrying her, including making herself as unattractive as possible at their first meeting to discuss the terms of her father’s will. But something about the little English heiress with the limp and the big attitude intrigues Alejandro and he decides a bride might be just the thing he most desires!

I grew up on a small farm on the outskirts of Sydney and as a keen horse rider, often competed in local gymkhanas and even broke in a few horses from time to time. As I was surrounded by animals, I decided at an early age to become a nurse, however I couldn’t stand the sight of blood and so opted for a career in teaching. It’s a bit ironic that I married a surgeon. I read my first Mills & Boon novel when I was 17 and that encouraged me to continue reading romance novels; the lure of the tall dark handsome hero, who in reality I fell in love with and agreed to marry on our second date! We moved to Scotland so my husband could work and study for his MD in surgery. Two lively sons later I decided teaching was the last thing I wanted to do – I knew when I was beaten!
