Chemistry explodes for one guarded billionaire in this forced proximity romance by Clare Connelly. A twist on the classic fairy tales "Cinderella" and "Beauty and the Beast."
The billionaire wouldn’t let anyone in… Until she breached his walls!
Tormented by the guilt of his past, Thirio Skartos hides in the shadows of his Alpine castle. He’s deprived himself of the wild pleasures he used to crave. Until Lucinda Villeneuve makes it beyond his imposing steel-reinforced door.
Wedding planner Lucinda must persuade the superrich recluse to hire her. It’s the only way to reclaim her rightful place in her father’s company. But when a storm leaves her stranded, she has no choice but to stay… And to resist a totally forbidden night in Thirio’s powerful arms!
With the death of billionaire patriarch Konstantinos Xenakis, long-held secrets threaten to find their way to the light, tearing apart the fabric of this powerful family for good.
Oldest son Anastasios is determined not to let that happen, even if it means making a deal with the devil herself… No matter how many times Phoebe tells him otherwise, Anastasios doesn’t believe her innocence. He’s convinced she was his late father’s secret mistress, and is willing to go to any lengths—including kidnapping her to his luxurious, Mediterranean based mega-yacht—to stop the ‘truth’ from hitting the tabloids. His mother has lost so much, she deserves better than having Konstantinos's affairs splashed through the tabloids.
But holding Phoebe captive would be a lot easier if he didn’t spend the whole time fantasising about her, nor fighting the chemistry that threatens to burn out of control between them. He hates her for what he believes she’s capable of, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t want her too…
This is a powerful, angsty, passionate full-length contemporary romance. If you love your heroes so alpha you melt, then get ready to fall in love with Anastasios Xenakis. HEA guaranteed.
