Enter the illustrious world of Jessica Clare’s billionaires and bridesmaids. Fans of Maya Banks, Melody Anne and J. Kenner will be dazzled by the scorching-hot chemistry of this New York Times bestseller.
You met the six bachelors of the Billionaire Boys Club… Now it’s time to pair up some filthy-rich billionaires with lucky ladies in waiting and enjoy the spoils…
Marjorie Ivarsson is the picture of naivete. A hardworking waitress raised by her grandmother, an evening playing bingo is her sort of socialising. But when she’s invited to be a bridesmaid at her friend Bronte’s wedding, she enters a whole new world.
Whisked away to the billionaire groom’s private island, Marjorie is awe-struck by the glitz and glamour. But what dazzles her most is notorious playboy and hot-shot TV producer Robert Cannon.
After Marjorie saves Robert from drowning in the island’s turquoise lagoon, she can’t help but feel drawn to him. But she’s not the only woman intrigued, and with his wild and womanising ways, they couldn’t be more wrong for each other. With the blistering attraction between them becoming hard to ignore, and the idyllic, irresistibly romantic island as their playground – will opposites attract?

The Billionaire and the Virgin (Billionaires & Bridesmaids #1) by Jessica Clare
Marjorie and Rob
SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW!!!
Ok well, the story is not what I’m used to. However, it is a fine story! We’ve got a main female character who 6 feet 1 inch tall and a main male character at 6 feet tall. To add to the height variation our female character lead likes to wear high heels, like 5″ heels high, which make her feel attractive and according to Rob, they make her legs go on for miles. I never thought I could grasp that concept of a woman taller than her man but this story is so damn charming that the height factor didn’t even matter to me.
Marjorie was raised by her grandparents therefore she seems to have a connection to the elderly. She knits, she plays bingo, and everything else geriatric in between. She’s still a virgin… basically because of her height and the company she keeps. When she goes to a Caribbean island for her friends wedding she meets Rob. The combination between meeting Rob and, I believe her location and atmosphere bring her out of her “elderly” shell. She’s funny, she’s witty, and she’s the perfect date if you’re pushing 84… Bwahaha!
Now that I’ve told you about Marjorie, I find it funny that now I’m going to tell you that Rob is the absolute reverse. He’s a playboy, he’s an asshole, and he’s not in the market for a girlfriend or a relationship. I had a hard time connecting to him at first because I felt like everything that came out of his foul mouth was fabrications. He totally grew on me throughout the story and by the end he had won my heart over ten fold.
The story is very endearing and amusing and sometimes even heartbreaking. You’ll enjoy magnificent highs and horrific lows, but once you reach the climax you’ll be glad that you put forth the effort and time to read this. The pacing is sometimes slow but not bad. The dialogue sometimes feels corny but that just adds to the humor. I really enjoy Jessica Clare’s books. She seems to know how to relate to her readers on so many diverse levels.

This is a pen name for Jill Myles.
Jill Myles has been an incurable romantic since childhood. She reads all the ‘naughty parts’ of books first, looks for a dirty joke in just about everything, and thinks to this day that the Little House on the Prairie books should have been steamier.
After devouring hundreds of paperback romances, mythology books, and archaeological tomes, she decided to write a few books of her own – stories with a wild adventure, sharp banter, and lots of super-sexy situations. She prefers her heroes alpha and half-dressed, her heroines witty, and she loves nothing more than watching them overcome adversity to fall into bed together.
