Lord Billionaire by Tammy L. Bailey Review

The blurb reads:
 Edmund Rushwood is a single English lord in possession of a great fortune who is in desperate need of a rich wife. In accordance with his father’s will, Edmund has until he turns twenty-six to find a wealthy bride or lose his vast inheritance.
To retain his selfish lifestyle, he agrees to join an American dating game show to find the woman who can save him. He doesn’t bargain on meeting Abby Forester, an impoverished, spirited American woman who is content to live out her father’s dreams in his vintage record shop. With covert intervention from an unlikely source, Abby lands on the dating game show as one of Edmund’s potential brides. As their worlds entangle and love begins to bloom, Abby discovers Edmund cannot marry her and retain his wealth at the same time. Will love keep them together, or will greed triumph and tear them apart?

Lord Bachelor is your typical Billionaire romance. This English Lord has to marry in a month before his birthday, or he will lose the only way of life he has ever known! I loved the dating show idea, though. It was a very good twist. I enjoyed how you could feel him wrestling with his demons, and how he second guessed everything because the stakes were so high. It was wonderful seeing how he quit being this self obsessed douchebag, to taking a good hard look at those around him. I couldn't stand him at first, he was so pompous, nothing was good enough for him, though as I got to see more of his world, I began to at least understand him a little and get why he was the way he was. He was born with a silver spoon and didn't want to lose it since it was all he had ever known. I love how strong Abby's personality is, and she is not intimidated or bowled over by his glitz and glamour. I also adore how she is not scared to take him to task for any of it, or his lack of social skills with his "lessers." So will he get to stay Lord or will he give it all up?
