Review for How to Catch an Heiress by Natalie Rios
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 intimidated 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...
Natalie Rios' "How to Catch an Heiress" is a great read. Liz Rockwell is in Vegas to meet up with her two best friends for a girls only weekend. Anthony Carter is in Vegas with some co-workers, he's in the bar since he doesn't like to gamble and that's what they're doing in the casino. He and Liz commiserate over scotch their recent failures with their friends. What starts out as fun, soon turns into a contest on who has it worse. Whoever says What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas is sorely mistaken. What happens in Vegas follows you home.

About the Author
As a child, Natalie used to hide in her room or behind the couch, curled up with a good book. She dreamed of being a writer, but her mother told her she needed to be practical and get "a real job with benefits". So like a good little nerd, she earned a degree in engineering.
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.
