Sweeping, sensual, and rawly emotional, Angelina M. Lopez crafts a debut that matches a strong, complicated heroine to a beautiful, tortured prince, and spins a swoon-worthy fairy tale for the 2019 reader. Lush Money is a gorgeous story full of heat and feels—and tons of sexy, royal fun!

—USA Today Bestselling Author Sierra Simone


A marriage of convenience and three nights a month.

That’s all the sultry, self-made billionaire wants from the impoverished prince.

And at the end of the year, she’ll grant him his divorce…with a settlement large enough to save his beloved kingdom.

As a Latinx woman, Roxanne Medina has conquered small-town bullies, Ivy League snobs and boardrooms full of men. She’s earned the right to mother a princess and feel a little less lonely at the top. The offer she’s made is more than generous, and when the contract’s fulfilled, they’ll both walk away with everything they’ve ever wanted.

Príncipe Mateo Ferdinand Juan Carlos de Esperanza y Santos is one of the top winegrowers in the world, and he’s not marrying and having a baby with a stranger. Even if the millions she’s offering could save his once-legendary wine-producing principality.

But the successful, single-minded beauty uses a weapon prince Mateo hadn’t counted on: his own desire.

Praise for Lush Money

Lush Money was nothing I expected and everything I needed. It took the billionaire and marriage of convenience tropes and flipped them on their heads. A bold, millionaire heroine, a sexy prince of a hero, an exhilarating power struggle and off-the-charts chemistry and passion that had my Kindle smoking. It's the perfect dirty fairy tale. --USA Today Bestselling Author Naima Simone

Fans of fake-relationship romances will delight in this fresh spin on the trope. - Publishers Weekly

This book is a shining jewel. I’m only three-fourths through so I can’t promise the last quarter will remain perfect. But I’m trying to pace myself and not gobble up this book because I don’t want it to end. The initial animosity is delicious, the authorial voice is magnetic, and I just want to slap these two idiots and make them swear their undying love for each other (this is a compliment!).

Lush Money is a debut but it doesn’t read like one. It’s polished, smart, sexy, and brilliant. I should probably stop praising it so much because I’m not done yet, but I have a gut feeling that it’ll end well.

Update: I finished. I freaking loved it. I’m floating on Cloud 9 but everyone should read it. - Aarya, Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

I just adored Roxanne and Mateo. Watching two people who started partially as enemies fall in love through friendship and understanding despite the fact that each fought it so hard was just wonderful to read. Both were complex and stubborn and proud and self-protective (They had wounds that matched each other really well as well as strengths), but also loyal and kind and caring, and just electrifying together (like so very hot and passionate and sexy but yet still very poignant somehow). - Historical Romance Author Felicia Grossman

EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING AND PREORDER LUSH MONEY. This is old-skool romance for the twenty-first century. It made me cry at least three times. I highlighted basically everything. The last line is perfection. - Elizabeth, @EisReading

I finished Lush Money by Angelina Lopez last night and I loved it so much! I can't believe it was a debut because the writing was really well done, the pacing spot on, and the characters were so well developed. - Melinda, @MelindaEdits

Lush Money is a very promising debut from an author I’m looking forward to seeing more from. Recently, I’ve been drawn to low drama romances with characters whose lives are imaginable. Lush Money is high drama and features a self made billionaire and the heir to a small European Kingdom. I loved it. - Emmalita, Cannonball Read
