Jane Millionaire
Janice Lynn

Reviewed by Lissa Staley

Romance Contemporary

Jill would do anything for her younger sister Jessie, which is the only possible explanation for how she ended up in the royal castle of a tiny European country on a reality television show. Beautiful aspiring actress Jessie auditioned and won a role on the show just before she became happily engaged to a wonderful man. To avoid a breach of contract, she sends Jill in her place to play the role of Princess Jane, a wealthy royal in search of Prince Charming from a group of 12 gorgeous bachelors.

In real life, Jill loves her job as a police officer, and she has some trouble adjusting to her life of feminine leisure in the castle. What gives her the most trouble is the presence of Rob Lancaster, the handsome TV producer who coaches and critiques her every move. The more time the leading actress and producer spend working together on the show, the harder it is for both of them to believe that Jill should fall in love with one of the available bachelors. While Rob knows the show's ratings are key, he dreads the final episode when Jane must pick a man to join her on a honeymoon vacation, because in his heart, he wishes to become Mr. Jane Millionaire.

Despite the predictability of the title, I truly enjoyed this light-hearted romance. While I don't usually like to watch reality TV, this story drew me in by including the behind-the-scenes drama of the production. The main characters are very believable. Both Jill and Rob are constantly trying to help other people, instead of worrying about what might make them personally happy. Without giving anything away, I was pleasantly surprised several times by twists or sub-plots in the storyline. An amusing contemporary debut for Janice Lynn, winner of Romantic Times BOOKclub's American Title contest.

SUMMARY

TUNE IN
On the set of Wolf TV’s hot new reality show “Jane Millionaire,” the steamiest scenes aren’t in front of the camera—they’re in-between takes.

TURN ON
With twelve gorgeous bachelors at her beck and call, Jill Davidson (AKA Jane) should be in heaven. Instead, her insides are sizzling, and the guy responsible isn’t even a contestant!

AND GET A TASTE OF TRUE TEMPTATION
Rob Lancaster loathes reality television, but producing “Jane Millionaire” is worse than anything. If only his star weren’t quite so appealing. If only there weren’t so many other hunks hanging around. If only he himself were Mr. Jane Millionaire….

On TV or off, anything can happen.
