His marriage of inconvenience…

Camilla Winthrop is about to do something she's never done in her life—she's about to ask a man to marry her. Not just any man. She hasn't seen Sam Flanagan in almost five years, after he coldly walked away from a passionate and intense two-week affair. Now Camilla is widowed and desperate…and marrying Sam is the only way she can protect their son. The son he never knew about.

A hugely successful attorney in Miami, Sam certainly never expected to see the stunning Camilla come through his door again. Nor can he ignore the desire heating his blood. But after she tells him her situation, Sam is furious. He'll marry her, but under his terms. And he'll take everything, including Camilla in his bed…unless she can find a way to thaw the millionaire's icy heart once more.
Another book with a hero that I just couldn't like. It seems to be trend lately. Sam is a very well to do lawyer now, but he wasn't when he met Camilla. Now that she has shown up with his son several years later, he automatically thinks that she's only after his money. I get that - I really do. But he doesn't give her a chance to really prove herself AT ALL. And the times she tries to show him that she isn't a money hungry witch, he throws it in her face and shows her just how little he thinks of it all.

Camilla bears it all in good form, she's more worried about making sure her son stays with her than the opinion of the man she hasn't seen in years. She's a pretty great mom and sister and I really loved how dedicated she was to both of them. She's had a bit of a rough past and is trying really hard to make a better future.

Eventually Sam comes to his senses, but not until it was too late for him in my mind. I did enjoy the story and the basic premise behind the romance was a good idea. Sam just really needed to turn into a good guy a lot sooner.
