A Madaris Bride for Christmas

by Brenda Jackson

In her 100th book, New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Brenda Jackson blends heated sensuality and drama into a dazzling new novel featuring one her most unforgettable Madaris heroes yet... 

One by one, Madaris men have surrendered to their grandmother's matchmaking. 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.

"Is there a reason you were dancing alone?"

Carly Briggs' face warmed as she wondered if Lee Madaris thought she'd looked ridiculous. "It's my birthday and-"

"Happy birthday," he said.

Carly smiled up at Lee. "Thanks. I was having my own private party of one."

He tilted his head. "That's no fun. A beautiful woman should never party alone."

He was smooth, she thought. As smooth as he was handsome. And she'd noticed he wasn't wearing a ring. She knew some men didn't cherish the sanctity of marriage vows, but she did.

"For me that's no problem. I'm a loner anyway," she said.


She doubted he wanted to listen to her sob story. She had few friends and had learned early on that the only person she could truly trust was herself. "I prefer things that way. What about you?"

"A loner?" Lee shrugged. "I couldn't be a loner even if I wanted to. My family's too big."

"Really?" she asked. She couldn't help but envy anyone who belonged to a large family.

"Yes, really."

The Luther Vandross song ended and they slowly parted. "You're an excellent dancer," he said.

"So are you." She glanced at her watch. "It's getting late and-"

"You're calling it an early night on your birthday?"

She chuckled. "Afraid so. I'm checking out of the hotel in the morning."

"I see. Well, thanks for the dance."

"No, I should be thanking you. It was nice meeting you. I hope you continue to enjoy the Grand MD."

Lee's smile widened. "Oh, I'm sure that I will."

Carly's gaze held his. She wasn't sure why she did what she did next. It could have been his scent surrounding her or his overpowering masculinity or his handsomeness-any of them could have been responsible for obliterating any semblance of her common sense.

Before she could talk herself out of doing so, she leaned up on her tiptoes. She only intended to plant a light kiss on his lips, but the moment their mouths touched they were caught in a barrage of desires they could no longer downplay. He pulled her into his arms. Her body pressed against his, and she felt every single inch of him.
