Romances To Curl up with This Valentine’s Day

Date: February 12th, 2021, Posted by mollie

Fiji Girl at Christmas

Dear Readers,

I know it’s not Christmas but along with Valentine’s Day it’s my favourite time of year. I took this photo while staying on the Fijian Island of Taveuni where I wrote The Italian Billionaire’s Christmas Bride. Have you read it yet? One of my fav’s. I love, love, love that story.

Here’s the wee blurb…

What if the person who is so, so, so wrong for you is really so, so, so right, but you’re too afraid to give love a chance?

Last Christmas, art therapist Issy Riley was jilted by her fiancé. This Christmas she’s running away. A week with a client on his private Fijian island promises to save her from cheating men and the London festive season. But when the client turns out to be a gorgeous and magnetic Italian billionaire, he threatens her resolve to never again trust her heart to the wrong man.


Milan fashion house leader and avowed bachelor Massimiliano Balforni has no intention of taking a vacation, despite his sister’s insistence that he subject himself to an art therapy retreat following a minor heart attack. With an important collection due, he intends to fire his therapist and work, instead. But the determined and striking Issy gives his heart palpitations of a far more dangerous kind.


The one thing Max and Issy agree on: they are as wrong for each other as wrong gets. He’s a workaholic playboy who believes emotion is a weakness. She’s a romantic who yearns for a happily ever after.


As the tropical heat soars, they discover that in this battle between work and play, resistance only fuels attraction—and sometimes two wrongs make a very passionate right.

Set in two beautiful paradises—Milano, Italy and the tropical Pacific islands of Fiji.


Praise for Book One in the Gemstone Billionaire’s series—The Italian Billionaire’s Christmas Bride

Reader Reviews:

“Mollie Mathews has created an instantly gripping dynamic between Issy and Massimilliano that beautifully blends their animosity and their undeniable attraction, making the tension soar.” ~ Laura, Harlequin Mills and Boon


“I really enjoy Mollie’s  style of writing – it’s in the 21st century and relates to every woman who has been trashed by a bloke.  The abandonment issues experienced by Max are also so relevant to our current world, so many have been emotionally stunted or abandoned.  This is a story that resonates with me and I could not put it down.  Mollie is just such a good writer with enormous appeal in her story – an excellent read on a rainy day.” ~ Rae Waterhouse


“I couldn’t get away for a holiday this year but was lucky enough to stumble across Mollie Mathews book Married by Christmas. With inviting backdrops of Italy and Fiji to set the scene and passionate but angst-ridden leading characters, it makes the perfect holiday reading.” ~ Laura Virgo


“A gorgeous escapist read. Loved the flirty spark between Max and Issy, and as for the location … sigh … I wanna be there. Will definitely be looking out for other books by this author. Recommended.” ~ Amazon Review



If this is the first time you have read a Gemstone Billionaire story, you can easily read each book as a standalone.
