There’s something intriguing and exciting about the high-powered world of the very rich that makes it a perfect fit for romance. We’ve picked three novels with billionaire heroes challenged by beautiful, smart heroines—perfect for reading on your (fantasy) private jet.
OFF LIMITS IN THE OFFICE
Former criminal prosecutor and New York Times best-selling author Virna DePaul delivers a tale of a sizzling office affair in the world of high finance in Filthy Rich. Wall Street analyst Cara Michal reluctantly attends a business party and kisses a mysterious, seductive stranger. The moment is so outside her normal, workaholic routine that she can hardly believe it happened. When the same man appears at her office the next day, she’s stunned to learn that Branden Duke is her new boss.
Branden knows Cara should be off-limits—he’s her employer. But neither of them can resist the powerful attraction that draws them together. Soon, they’re caught up in a full-fledged affair and falling in love. However, they’re both keeping secrets about their pasts that have the power to destroy the deep connection that binds them. Evil stalks them, threatening their very lives, and only their faith in each other may let them survive.
Filthy Rich boasts a detailed mystery plot and hot love scenes that scorch the page. The smart, honorable hero and heroine are supported by a strong secondary cast of characters who add depth and warmth to an already solid story.
HOT FOR TEACHER
Best-selling New Adult author Penelope Douglas makes her adult romance debut with Misconduct, a steamy tale of forbidden love. When business mogul Tyler Marek kisses a beautiful masked stranger at a Mardi Gras ball, he can’t forget her. Unfortunately, he can’t find her, either. It isn’t until he meets his son’s new teacher that he realizes his search has ended.
New teacher Easton Bradbury left behind a stellar career in professional tennis for college and a teaching credential. She’s enthusiastic, committed and determined to reach her students. The powerful attraction she feels for Tyler Marek could get her fired, but she can’t seem to stay away from him. Tyler feels the same, and before long, they’re caught up in an affair that shakes the foundations of their lives. Neither were looking for love, and both have issues with trust. Given the obstacles they face, is there any hope for a happy ending?
The lovely, fascinating city of New Orleans is the setting for this well-written story that pairs an equally stubborn and complicated hero and heroine. Add in a troubled teenager, suspicious friends, an ex-lover and a political team, and the result is a very satisfying read.
Prolific, best-selling author Katie Lane launches a new series featuring billionaire heroes with A Billionaire Between The Sheets. Handsome Louisiana bayou resident Deacon Beaumont becomes an instant billionaire when his estranged uncle dies and leaves him a third of his lingerie company, French Kiss. His step-cousin, Olivia Harrington, has spent her life working at the San Francisco company and offers to buy out Deacon and his brothers. Something about the situation bothers Deacon, however, and he flies to California to look into the business.
It doesn’t take long for Deacon to realize that the company is in trouble on several fronts, and without his management expertise, French Kiss may very well go under. He decides to stay. Olivia has mixed feelings about his decision, especially since she’s trying desperately, and failing spectacularly, to keep Deacon out of her bed.
The two form an uneasy alliance, but when both face revelations from their pasts, their romance is shaken and may be destroyed forever.
There’s something about a bayou boy, a good girl and silky French lingerie that shrieks sexy romance. Lane doesn’t disappoint and delivers an entertaining, seductive, all-out terrific read with this latest novel.
