Review of HOW TO CATCH AN HEIRESS by Natalie Rios & Giveaway!

Title: How to Catch an Heiress
Series: The Heiress Series #1
Author: Natalie Rios
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance 
 Release Date: October 3, 2016


Anthony Carter has not had it easy in life. In a matter of months, he lost his mother to cancer along with his much coveted spot in a prestigious doctoral program. Swimming in debt, he's been forced to move back to his hometown in rural Montana and take whatever job he can find. A drunken weekend in Vegas is exactly what he needs to help him forget his problems.

​A recent break-up with her boyfriend of nearly a decade has left straight-laced Liz Rockwell disillusioned with love and in desperate need of a vacation. She gets more than she bargained for when one drunken night at a Vegas bar results in her being married to Anthony. Embarrassed by her lapse in judgment, Liz is ready to make this whole night just go away. A quickie divorce seems like the best solution to their problem, until Anthony realizes who Liz really is.

​Known in the media as the Candy Heiress, billionaire Liz is the answer to Anthony’s prayers. All he has to do is convince her to write him a check. Unfortunately, Liz is not one to be easily intimated or coerced. Discovering the Rockwell family secret may be Anthony’s only hope. But the more time he spends with the intelligent and tenacious Liz, the more he realizes their chapel wedding may not have been such a drunken mistake after all...


So, how do you catch a heiress?  Well apparently you both get bloody drunk and submit to what your heart really wants, someone to love.  However, Liz and Anthony don't relalize this at first.  Liz is stranded by herself in Vegas after one friend backs out and another is stuck in another country.  The last thing she wants to be is alone; however, this is exactly where she finds herself.  So she proceeds to do what anyone wallowing in self pity does, she starts drinking.  When a guy engages her in small talk, she doesn't want to give him the time of day.  However, the longer he talks, the more she realizes he is more like her than she initially thought.

Anthony let his friends convenice him to blow off some steam in Vegas, but at the first opportunity they ditch him to hit up the casinos.  The last thing he wants to do is gamble so he heads to the bar.  When he meets Liz he is intrigued by her and strikes up a conversation.  Little does he realize that one talk will change his whole life.

I truly enjoyed Liz and Anthony's story.  While most would think their potential relationship was doomed before it even started, I couldn't help but want them to get their HEA.  I loved the dynamics between them and how they each wanted to win whatever it was they were discussing.  The author did a wonderful job of keeping the story flowing and building the dynamics of the characters.  She truly has talent and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!

Watching him squirm was fun, almost too much fun.

A muscle in his jaw twitched and if his teeth were clenched any tighter, they would probably break. He oh-so-gently set my card down on the entryway table, as if it were a grenade that needed to be handled with great care. When his gaze met mine again, I could see the worry in his eyes. It was finally hitting him that he was up the creek without a paddle.

“This,” I made whirling motion with my index finger, “is all so very predictable.”

That had his eyes narrowing, anger quickly replacing worry. “Predictable,” he snorted. “You don’t know anything about me. And what little you do know is hardly enough for you to be able to predict anything about me.”

“Oh, but I do know about you. Quite a bit, in fact. Shall I tell you what my research on you has turned up?”

His eyes and mouth widened with shock. “You researched me?”

“I’m the Candy Heiress, born to a family worth billions. Did you seriously think I would wake up suddenly married to a stranger and not immediately look into his criminal history? His life story?” Studying him, his expression told me that’s exactly what he’d thought. The prick. “Let’s see...Where should I begin? Perhaps chronologically?”

“Get on with it. You probably don’t have much,” he replied gruffly. “I was only a bit surprised because I’m not as searchable as you are, princess.”

The nickname had me sending him a withering look. “Don’t call me that.”

“I’ve Googled myself before. There’s hardly anything out there.” His words were like a gauntlet being thrown, a challenge I could not resist accepting. Like most people, he was underestimating me. A huge mistake on his part and a notion I was happy to disabuse him of.

Author Bio

Natalie can't sing. Or dance. Or play an instrument. She can't ride a bike and doesn't know how to swim or drive. As a result, her husband often asks "Are you sure you're not really from Mars?" (the answer, in case you were wondering, is no. Unless New York counts as another planet). When she's not geeking out at her day job, Natalie can be found attempting to wrangle her overly energetic Westie, baking ridiculously chewy chocolate chip cookies, and watching so-bad-it's-good reality television shows.
