Gerald Wilkins, the world's youngest billionaire, is about to get more than he expected for Christmas. Gerald, Ruby and Sam are meeting up with Alisha and Gerald's Australian school friend Ox for two weeks of snowboarding in the mountains of California. It's a dream vacation. But soon after they arrive - by helicopter, with Gerald's butler Mr Fry at the controls, of course - the private chalet is attacked. Gerald and the gang escape through a secret passage, only to be pursued on snowmobiles by men with guns across frozen lakes and into the path of a cascading avalanche. Could this be the work of Gerald's nemesis Sir Mason Green, recently escaped from prison? Or is someone else behind the attack? Does the old dry cleaning ticket Gerald found amongst Green's belongings hold the key? And how does an invitation to join the secretive Billionaire's Club land Gerald in so much trouble? Join Gerald and his friends in the USA, the Czech Republic and a tiny island in Sweden for a new thrilling adventure. After all, with all that money, there's got to be more to the story.

The last thing he remembered was his face between her thighs as she cut off his circulation. Alonzo's ego was crushed, totally crippled for the very first time--by a woman! "Do you even know who I am?" he said to her. Sure, he thought. She's a purple belt in Jiu-Jitsu...but I'm Alonzo, the only rightful heir of the Ortega family.

Now he's obsessed. Not to sleep with her. But to beat her on the mat and show her who the boss. But in the midst of his determination, they begin to form a friendship.

Answer - There is a mix of things, I enjoy reading contemporary, action & adventure, satire and mostly enemies to lovers fiction. A Billionaire's First Love- book 1 is set in BALI. My story brings you away and escapes to a different world. This story will bring you to the exotic island of Bali, this is a perfect place to be in love, to see things in different perspectives. to heal and to be reborn again. Overall this book is a breath of fresh air for those who are a little tired of alpha men and submissive women.

Book 1 - The Billionaire's Assistant Book 2 - The Billionaire's Proposal Book 3 - The Billionaire's Temptation My name is Abigail Wilder. PR maven extraordinaire. A credit to her industry. A savior to her clients. A razor-tongued blessing to those who employed her, and a curse to those who stood in her way. (This was all printed on my business cards. In so many words.) But to him, my biggest client, I was Abby. And to me, he was Nick. Nick keeps me busy with all his stunts and playboy ways. He gets in trouble and it's my job to bail him out and make everything shine in a positive light. He's a pain in my ass! Far too wild for my taste. And now the board wants to keep him on a leash until their big merger goes through. They want me to find him a girlfriend. Get someone to tame Nick? Yeah, right. Damn, do I have my hands full. I wanted to give Nick my standard speech. The ‘fame is a fickle friend’ speech, and tell him to keep his damn head down for once. But such speeches had never really worked on Nick. And to be honest, he was right. The press did love him. They always had. They probably always would. He was their dream—a man who knew no limits. No boundaries. Every page—an open book. Over the years, he’d become something of a folk hero. The crown prince of mayhem who couldn’t be tamed. A source of constant entertainment and levity for the masses. But even by celebrity standards, Nick was a rare breed. Because beneath that careless playboy persona, beneath all the money, and mischief, and that unquenchable sense of adventure…he had a genuinely good heart. It was this ‘good heart’ his father’s company had hired me to promote. To protect. To shine a spotlight on all the good things—half to highlight them, half to keep that same spotlight off everything bad. By protecting his image, I was protecting their shareholders, and thus—doing my not inconsiderable part to contribute to the massive global conglomeration that was his father’s company. The Hunter Corporation. The family’s crowning achievement. It's a tough job, but somebody has to keep the gorgeous billionaire in check. And I guess that job belongs to me.

He needs a wife. She needs a paycheck. But neither expect the heat in their marriage of convenience. No one puts CEO Jack Sutton in a corner, not even his mother... or her will. If he wants his inheritance, he needs to be married, but no one said the marriage had to be anything other than a business arrangement. There are plenty of willing women, and they'll play by the rules: stick to the script and don't fall in love. He only has to find one in time. Too bad he only left himself a few hours. Kelly Bradley made it into the law school of her dreams, but she has no way to pay and the tuition deadline is fast approaching. Marrying a billionaire might be a bit drastic, but spending one year on his arm will make all her problems go away... if she can keep her heart in check. That's never been a problem in the past. It's a business arrangement, but when one thing leads to another will Jack be able to let Kelly go? Or can he find a way to renegotiate the deal of his life? This is a standalone book in the Sutton Billionaires Series. A shorter version of this book was previously published in the Sutton Capital Series.

But Logan is fighting a different kind of battle; one no one realizes he’s in. While he’s focused on managing his PTSI, something much more sinister enters his world and he must battle to save Samantha’s life and their growing love.
