Not you mother's romance

Melody Anne’s Billionaire Universe Kindle World

Philanthropic billionaire, Lathan Kincaid, needs a wife. Now. He’s got seventeen days to woo and wed, or risk losing his trust fund and a controlling interest in the family business—and without those, he’ll miss the balloon payment on the project dearest to his heart: a school he’s funding in Kenya to honor his deceased brother. The clock is ticking, and Lathan will do anything to find a wife, even make a deal with the firecracker of a female who shows up in the tow truck to rescue his Porsche.

Jacqueline “Jack” Price refuses to get sucked into anyone’s family drama—especially not the sexy playboy with bedroom eyes and a crazy pickup line. Working day and night to earn enough to care for her father, who has Alzheimer’s, Jack has no time to play house with a desperate billionaire. But when Lathan sweetens the pot with the promise of money to provide her father the best of care, Jack swallows her pride and agrees to the soulless terms: marriage for a minimum of one year in exchange for her father’s comfort.

Lathan and Jack know from the outset that the foundation of their marriage is built in sinking sand. But as Jack locks up her heart to protect herself, Lathan opens his, understanding that the only thing he wants is the one thing his billions can’t buy: Forever . . . with Jack.

 

The Dame…

Valentina Giordano abandoned her jet-setting life as an international supermodel to prove to the world that behind her devastating beauty exists genuine brilliance and a natural business talent. A tycoon in her own right, she assumes the helm of her father’s business conglomerate upon his death. But it isn’t her father’s business Valentina prizes. His antique car collection holds her heart, and with that inheritance comes memories of her beloved father, their mutual love of fast cars—and, ultimately, vicious sabotage by an unknown enemy.

The Expert…

Jeremy Price, antique car expert and permanent bachelor, built the family auto body business into a successful corporation. His skilled management created an accomplished team that functions well without him. Solvent, with time to burn, he dives into his dream of dirtying his hands with a top-to-bottom classic car restoration—a dream derailed when his expertise is sought for a surprising reason: to save a woman from murder.

The Challenge…

Jeremy uncovers clues to the sabotage, but that isn’t his only focus. His unexpected client is former supermodel Valentina Giordano, and between her beauty, brains, and knowledge of cars, Jeremy breaks his own rules and falls for her hard and fast. He soon finds himself playing three dangerous roles—sabotage investigator, hot lover, and fierce protector of this amazing, but fearless woman determined to discover who in her trusted inner circle wants her dead. Keeping Valentina safe becomes Jeremy’s major challenge—second only to not giving her his heart.
