Let Jennifer Probst take you on a romantic adventure you never dreamed you would experience.

The prolific author of the Marriage to a Billionaire series engages her fans completely with these books and other contemporary romance novels. Her books are on the bestselling list of the New York Times, USA Today and the Wall Street Journal.

She met the love of her life when she believed that all romances fail. He promised her that he would buy her first book if he could buy her dinner. They fell in love and have been in conjugal bliss ever since.

Now living in the Hudson Valley, she has traveled afar, but has a lasting love for the mountains. The Business graduate spends most of her days dedicated to her family and the characters in her novels.

Her Inspiration

Jennifer knew, since a young age, that she wanted a writing career. She penned her first love story at the young age of twelve. The tenacious young woman understood the concept of self-motivation and the need to hold fast to her self-esteem and ideals. She learned to demand respect in a relationship. These self-directed experiences influence the penning of her inspiring romances.

The imaginative, youthful Jennifer has, at different points of time, thought of becoming an airline pilot, dancer, archaeologist or vineyard owner. Her interest in the above occupations drove her to craft characters involved in them.

The turning point in her writing career came when she joined Romance Writers of America. Critique sessions with her local chapter, the Hudson Valley RWA, helped her hone her raw skills and write published manuscripts. She learned not to use wordy, passive phrases and now helps other writers along their journeys.


Jennifer has since written countless romances that show her active, fertile imagination. Her works include various romance contemporaries, namely Holiday Hoax, All the Way and Executive Seduction. She has a fondness for romantic entanglements that happen amid business relationships. Each of these novels revolve around dynamic characters, with romance blossoming in the middle of heady, business-like settings.

The Marriage to a Billionaire Series

She wrote the books in her Marriage to a Billionaire series with these ideas in mind. Each involves a suave billionaire making a business-like, romantic transaction with a strong, female character who, like Jennifer herself, demands mutual regard in the relationship.


The wealthy, charming male protagonist in these novels seldom takes life or relationships too seriously. Jennifer portrays gripping characters such as Nicholas Ryan and Michael Conte, as debonair, detached billionaire playboys. They view marriage as a transaction that ends when they satisfy their end of the deal. Each is stylish, dapper, unbelievably personable and most importantly, virile.

Female characters such as Alexa Maria and Maggie Ryan are strong-willed, fiery women who see the transaction as a necessary challenge. They aim to keep to the marriage, bearing in mind the important financial goals at stake. Romance takes hold, whether the characters want it to or not. Readers pore voraciously through the pages to find out what happens to these characters who mimic those in a Hollywood Screenplay.

The Marriage Bargain

Indulgence Publishing released The Marriage Bargain, the first book in the series, aptly on Valentine’s Day in 2012. In this novel, bookstore owner Alexa Maria McKenzie aims to save her home with a marriage to her best friend Maggie’s older billionaire brother, Nicholas Ryan. Nicholas needs a wife so that he can inherit his father’s multi-billion dollar corporation. What begins as a marriage in name gradually develops, with many heart-stopping twists. This is regardless of the rules against all entanglements and vows to keep matters strictly business. Both characters scramble valiantly to save their own interests, but do they?

The novel has received remarkably positive reception from other authors. Fellow New York Times bestselling author, Lori Wilde has praised the Marriage Bargain as a charming, romantic tale destined to steal the heart.

Maldavian Book Reviewers praised the passion in this novel as being explosive, yet tender. For them, the novel is a fiery romance that touches deeply. The novel also received rave reviews from Book Passion for Life. It gave the book 5 stars, with the reviewer stating that she could not put it down. She expressed her disappointment at finishing the book. Other readers have said that they will not hesitate to buy Jennifer’s novels. Some reviewers, however, see the novel as having a predictable plot. A reviewer at Dear Author has critiqued the book’s plot as being foreseeable and the prose, mundane. The book has sold millions of copies over Amazon and retail bookstores, despite the mixed reviews.

The Marriage Trap

Entangled Books released the second novel in the series, The Marriage Trap, in October of 2012. In this next book, Single billionaire Michael Conte, according to traditional Italian practices, must find a bride so that his sister in Italy can wed. Having problems with commitment, Michael hands fiery, free-spirited photographer Maggie Ryan a proposal on his own terms. If she promises to play the part of his fiancee during her photo shoot in Milan, he will keep away from her married best friend, Alexa, and tone his playboy flirtations down. Sexual tension erupts despite their best intentions and the false marriage develops. Hooked readers must thumb through the novel to discover what happens to their unstoppable romance.

Many reviewers have left positive feedback for this book. Some say that the sexual chemistry between the main characters leaves one breathless. They dub the novel as a fine method of escapism, filling the mind with sexually charged fantasies. Other reviewers praise the character of Maggie as being well-rounded, with vulnerability despite her sarcasm and feisty nature. For these reviewers, the electric chemistry between Michael and Maggie is a huge draw.

The novel also left some reviewers dying find out when publishers would release the next title in the series. Some readers, however, see the character of Maggie as being unnecessarily brash. They also feel that the story line could have more substance. This is yet another novel, however, that has sold countless copies, despite the mixed reception. Producers have not yet approached Jennifer for rights to turn these steamy romances into movies or television series. However, the authoress still harbors this hope. She continues to delight her readers, thrilling them with highly charged sexuality, raw male magnetism and determined female vigor.
