The Princess and the Billionaire : Billionaire Lovers – Book 2

by Barbara Bretton

A match made in heaven? It’s only a matter of time . . .

Billionaire Lovers – Book 2

A runaway princess looking to start a new life in New York City

A golden boy billionaire who likes his life just the way it is

She grew up in a castle high in the French Alps

He was born in Queens

She cut her teeth on caviar and champagne

He loves Big Macs and supersized fries

From the snow-covered Alps to the noisy streets of Manhattan to the ramshackle cottage in the Pennsylvania Poconos, Isabelle and Daniel fight their attraction to each other every step of the way.

Excerpt

It suddenly hit Bronson that she wasn’t half as smart or sophisticated as she wanted him to believe. Isabelle was a nineteen-going-on-twenty-year-old girl with a bad case of the hots for a guy who wasn’t good enough to kiss her Jimmy Choos. He’d overheard the servants talking about the little princess and Malraux’s son, and it didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what it was all about.

Just because he was too jaded to believe in happily-ever-after was no reason to deny the girl her dreams. She’d learn soon enough that life didn’t always work out according to plan, not even for princesses with eyes dark as night.

But still there was something about her that called out to him. Something that went beyond the allure of her cascade of dark curls or the sweet curves of her body and touched at the most primitive part of his soul. She shifted in her seat, brushing away a lock of hair with an elegant, artless gesture and for a moment, Bronson knew exactly how she would feel in his arms. She was too young, too spoiled, too much trouble for a man as practical and pig-headed as he was, but still””

I’m not laughing at you, princess, he thought as he met her eyes. I’m just wondering why I couldn’t have been first.

Play for Me: A Morning Madison Fake Fiance Romance

by Ian Finn

Will

I’m the host of the Morning Madison TV show, and a local celebrity. Ever since my rich, famous father died, I’ve looked after my mother. She likes to provide me with a lot of material comforts, but she also likes to meddle and play pranks on me.

None of this has helped my love life, or lack thereof. I mean, he-llo, I live with my mother! Not to mention that it’s been a long time since I’ve had a relationship– and that bad experience really soured my desire try again.

When my PR rep tells me that my public image could use a makeover, my mom seems to have the perfect solution. She’ll hire a guy to pretend to be my boyfriend, and we’ll get very publicly engaged. It’s just for one month, and after that we can say it didn’t work out, and at least everyone will stop thinking I’m some perpetual hermit.

At first, I think my dear ole Ma has finally cooked up a scheme that could actually work. But then when I meet the attractive, witty, musically talented Brent, I can’t help but feel as if I know him from somewhere. And I also worry that there might be a snag in the otherwise perfect arrangement.

What if I’m falling for my fake fiancé for real?

Brent

As a war veteran with PTSD, I’ve been down and out on my luck. When the crochety old lady who has hired me to play pranks on her son then suggests I pretend to be engaged to him, I decide she’s certifiably crazy. But then, I hear the price tag she’s offering: one million dollars.

That could get me out of my current situation, and onto a better life. I’m only doing it for the money. Or at least that’s what I tell myself. Because I can’t let myself fall for the rich, arrogant pr*ck who has told me off for daring to play my music on the street, and whose Mommy has to arrange his love life for him.

Soon, though, I find out there’s a softer side to Will, and he’s so d*mn irresistible. Perhaps we can help each other overcome the traumas of our past.

But when he finds out who I really am, will he even want anything to do with me?

Play for Me is a fake relationship, enemies to lovers, rags to riches, opposites attract, male/male romance. It contains sad pasts, optimistic futures, strong healing arms and hearts and plenty of other mixing of man-on-man body parts, enough music to put your favorite local band to shame, plenty of steam, no cheating, no cliffhangers and a very happy ever after. It’s a standalone novella of 26,000 words in the Morning Madison series, which can be read in any order but are best enjoyed together, and with a big glass of water nearby due to so much heat in addition to all those feels!
