Book Description


Sarah Vaughn put her life on hold to raise her brothers after their parents died, and now it was her turn to live her life. After graduating from college at 32, she landed a dream internship with an international investment firm. Sarah wants to make partner there one day and she is willing to do whatever it takes.
She commutes in to downtown on the train every morning and her special treat is seeing him every day. He fuels her fantasies and for a few minutes each day she allows herself to dream.

Sarah’s life changes the day he seduces her on the train. His sensual power over her is like none she has ever experienced. But that morning on the train is just the beginning of a chain of events that will change Sarah’s life forever. She doesn’t know that the gorgeous stranger is Joshua Hunter, billionaire CEO of Hunter International, and he has a voracious appetite for smart, sexy women.
When she discovers who he is, he gives her an offer she is not sure she can refuse…

The Billionaire's Desire - Excerpt

“I didn’t mean to wake you.”
Damn, his voice was so deep and sexy.
“Oh, that’s OK. I wasn’t sleeping. Um, what are you doing here?”
He gave me a wry smile and asked me what I was doing there.
“I work here. Well, I don’t actually work here, not yet anyway.” I saw him raise an eyebrow. “I’m an intern in the investment banking unit. Just taking a late lunch.” My throat was suddenly very dry. I took a sip of my water to quench my thirst but it didn’t help. This man had such an effect on me. I could feel my cheeks burning as he just looked at me. His dark eyes roamed slowly over my body stopping at the opening of my blouse. I was always careful not to dress seductively at work. I never unbuttoned more than one button and I never wore a skirt above my knee.
He tore his gaze away from my blouse and looked into my eyes. “I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you since this morning. You smelled so good,” he murmured in his deep sexy voice. He reached out to brush the hair out of my wide eyes that were blinking at him uncontrollably.
Am I dreaming here? There is no way this is really happening.
I was suddenly very aware of the thumping of my heart. I hope he can’t sense what he is doing to me. I felt light-headed as I tried to think of something to say in response to him.
He pulled up a chair and was sitting directly in front of me. He pulled out his cell phone and made a call while holding my gaze the entire time. “I’m in the lounge and I don’t want to be disturbed for the next hour.” Immediately after he hung up the phone I heard the door automatically lock.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok for a quick lunch time read 29 Oct. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very quick spicy read that was ok. Sarah starts work at an international firm, travelling by train, where she soon spots a handsome man who makes the same journey with her every day. One day things get steamy between then and he even shows up at her work place to leave her in a heated mess in the staff room, before leaving. She has a shock when she finds out that he's none other than her boss, billionaire CEO Josh Hunter. He soon has his way with her over his desk at work and gives her a 30 day assignment to accompany him to Dubai, all expenses paid, including her designer wardrobe, on the condition that she obeys his every command.

It's hard to feel any emotional connection to characters when a read is this short, but there wasn't enough of their emotions or feelings displayed to make me warm to them. I got this as a freebie, but having seen that the remainder of the series of short novella's is on at £1.49, I didn't love it enough to shell out to continue with their story. This is too expensive in my opinion for a 70 page novella, especially as there are currently ten of them at similar prices, some with even lower page counts. I can pay £1.85 for a full length 400 page erotic romance novel, so I'll be saying my pennies for one of those instead

Yet another set of books where someone has decided to take a good book and split it up, perhaps to make more money or build suspense.....I don't know but I would far prefer to just buy the story as one book. The only point in it's favour is that this does at least feel that this part of the lead lady's life does reach a point of completion - where one part is finished and the next book will take up the next part of her life. It's really, really short though, finished it in an hour, some samples that I've had seemed longer!

It's the usual dominant bilionairre owner of large company takes a sexual interest in new innocent intern and basically starts to stun her into the beginnings of a sensual awakening that will literally change her life.

Will I bother to read the others-probably not, I'd rather just read a story from beginning to end in one book. However, if the publishers decided to release this tale as one book I may be enticed as I was intrigued.

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book, faults and all. 28 Nov. 2014
By Deborah TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read 'Jealous Billionaire' by this author I looked around for more of her work, now I make so secret of the fact that I hate short serial novellas/books, I've no patience for the wait in between, they usually end on a cliffhanger and work out expensive by the time you've got them all, box sets however I like since there's no wait and they generally work out cheaper. Anyway that's how I came to read this series.
The synopsis covers the book well so I'll just say that I loved it. I've read the reviews and this appears to be a love it or hate it kind of book.
I agree with the reviews, good and bad, she's too eager to become partner, he's controlling, dialogue wasn't brilliant, was protection used? not a great deal of background or build-up, was there any chemistry between them?
Despite its faults and yes I wasn't blind to them I loved this book, I can't explain it but I did.

3.0 out of 5 stars Story was okay but not good value for money. 11 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story itself was okay, aside from some grammar issues, but it was incredibly short and for that reason I felt not worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars The billionaire desire 22 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Billionaire's Desire Book 1 of 3

This book does exactly what it says on the tin, it's a short story filled with lust, sex and a hot billionaire, the story starts off mysterious, exciting and a little bit lusty, the middle is full of desire, wishful thinking and some awkward moments (for the main character) and the end leaves you anxious to read more, excited for what's to come and googling the author to find more of her work :)

Story: 5

Characters: 5

Cover: 5

Great short read, will be sure to follow this one

1.0 out of 5 stars poor book split into 3 to make money 27 Dec. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think since 50 shades there's a market for books such as these, and that's no bad thing. However on the negative side we now have poor writers trying to capitalize on the market and this is unfortunately what has happened here. This trilogy is actually one book split into 3. Book 1 has only 5 chapters and so don't expect any story of any value (erotic or not) without spending more money. The total cost of which would get you a book of much higher quality.
The story itself is tried and tested - effective but unoriginal. That would not usually make me leave such a poor score but the sly way the author is attempting to make money, does. For this reason I will be leaving 1 star reviews for the following 2 'books' in the series.
