An Unsuitable Husband by Ros Clarke
Synopsis: Theresa Chartley has no time for marriage, and no room for disappointment–especially with French soccer player Emile Renaud. Sure, he’s gorgeous, but he’s wrong for a career woman like Theresa. If only her mother would stop pressuring her to get married and let her live her own life. Finding a very unsuitable husband to shock her parents into silence and put an end to the marriage campaign is the only answer. Emile will do just fine.
Theresa’s outrageous proposal is the answer to Emile’s problem. They’re complete opposites living in different worlds, but a fake marriage will let him ditch his clingy ex once and for all. Then he’ll be free of commitment and free to live his life the way he wants to.
A contract. Twelve months. And they walk away scot-free. But a year of marriage tests them both in unimaginable ways. Maybe Emile isn’t unsuitable after all, but how can Theresa let herself love him when she signed a contract to let him go?
Author Bio: Ros is a writer, a church worker, a crafter, a blogger, a twitterer, a lazy gardener, and an appalling housekeeper. She lives in a sixteenth century shed in England and is very glad that it has twenty-first century plumbing. She is interested in almost everything except cricket and football (US and UK) and mostly she likes happy endings in fiction and in real life. Ros has been writing stories for as long as she can remember, never dreaming that other people would be interested in reading them. A few years ago, she discovered a writing forum on the internet, and has never looked back. Her head, and her hard drive, are full of ideas for fresh, fun, contemporary romances that she hopes you’ll love as much as she does. Website Blog Twitter Facebook
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Good morning, Gabe. Describe yourself in five words or less.
[Gabe Campos] Determined risk taker who goes all in. Yeah, I know that’s seven, but I never would have made my first billion if I played by the rules.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share a typical day in your life?
[Gabe Campos] Up early for a workout, meetings in the car on the way to the office, a day full of strategizing my next takeover. You know. The typical workaholic stuff. Really, the only time I’m not working is when I’m alone in my woodshop.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What three words come to mind when you think of Keisha?
[Gabe Campos] Feisty. Stubborn. Smart as hell. Yeah, I know I broke the rules again.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s her most appealing quality?
[Gabe Campos] Since we’ve yet to meet in person, I’m going to go with her voice. It’s like smooth whiskey in front of a full fire. There’s a reason why I call her personally to negotiate instead of having someone else do it.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What just drives you nuts about her?
[Gabe Campos] That’s easy – her stubbornness. If she’d just sell her family furniture company to me, we could get on with the seduction part of our romance.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] If you could change one thing you’ve done in your life, what would it be?
[Gabe Campos] I’d listen to my Uncle Julio when he tries to teach me about cars.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] What’s one thing you won’t leave home without?
[Gabe Campos] My cellphone.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you share your dreams for the future in five words or less.
[Gabe Campos] Now that would be giving you inside information.
[Manga Maniac Cafe] Thank you!
Betting the Billionaire
by Avery Flynn
Synopsis: If that man calls her one more time… So what if Gabe Campos is a model-dating billionaire who gets Keisha Jacobs hotter than a Ferrari’s engine on the straightaway? He keeps pushing her to sell her family’s furniture business, but she’ll never give in—not unless she wants to give her father a second heart attack.
All Gabe should be thinking about is how he’ll finally get revenge on the man who killed his father. But when he meets the man’s daughter, Keisha, instead of focusing on destroying Jacobs Fine Furnishings, he can’t get her warm-whisky voice out of his mind.
Forced by a snow storm to spend the night together, their passion ignites. The next day, however, it’s back to business. The only way Keisha can save her family is to win a bet with the billionaire. But neither realized their hearts are part of the bargain…
Author Bio: Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.
She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.
Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
