The Groom (A Keeper Series, Book #1) by Melissa McClone

What would you do for a million dollars?

The only thing more awkward than falling in love on national television, is having your heart broken in front of millions of viewers.

When Millie Kincaid signed up for the popular dating show, The Groom, falling in love was always a possibility. What she didn’t count on was Jace proposing to someone else on the season finale. Hurt and humiliated, Millie returned home to her teaching job, ready to escape the glare of life in the spotlight. Too bad Hollywood had other ideas. This time she would be globe-trotting, competing for money, not love. Money that her school desperately needed. How could she refuse?

Former star of The Groom, Jace Westfall went from fan favorite to villain overnight. Hurting the sweet and shy Millie cost him everything… his reputation, his endorsements and his heart. It was the last thing Jace wanted to do, but he had his reasons. Now on the verge of financial ruin, and with his family relying on him, Jace finds himself left with no choice but to do another reality show. What’s the worst that could happen?

Game twist.

Millie and Jace must compete together. Neither wants to be teammates, but both need the money. As they race from country to country, trying to put the past behind them, two things become clear. They have a real shot at the million dollar prize…and a second chance at love. But only if Millie and Jace can overcome the biggest obstacle that stands in their way—each other.
