I’m absolutely thrilled to welcome author Lea Nolan as she shares with us a special look into the life of her newest hero, Carter Anderson from His Billion Dollar Baby. He’s absolutely delicious …. check it out below!
Thanks so much for having me. I’m delighted to be here!
In my new book, His Billion Dollar Baby, Carter Anderson starts off as the quintessential playboy billionaire. He’s got everything money can buy–and believes money can buy everything–even happiness. That is, until he meets his match, Gwen Radley, a physical therapist at Walter Reed Medical Center, and former foster child, who knows the best things in life are free.
To learn how Carter discovers the true value of happiness, you’ll have to read the book, which is all the more easy since it’s on sale for just $0.99 for a limited time! Until then, I thought it would be fun to take a look at a few of the billionaire toys his fortune affords him. After all what good is having money if you don’t spend it?
Jaguar XJ Convertible
Carter’s car is more than just a vehicle to get him from A to B, it’s a luxury machine, intended for speed and drawing attention. As DC’s Sexiest Bachelor, he wouldn’t be expected to drive anything less. Gwen on the other hand, pilots a used Honda Civic, which proves an endless source of irritation to Carter, and provides her with a considerable amount of glee.
Carter would never purchase a suit off the rack at The Men’s Warehouse. He’d sooner wear nothing at all (and look amazing!). When clothes are required, he’s a made-to-measure kind of guy with a tailor on call. Remember when Christian Bale played Bruce Wayne/Batman and went to all the fancy galas dressed to kill? Yeah, he’s a close second to Carter Anderson.
Big Ass House
No billionaire worth his salt would live in a house, or even a run-of-the mill mansion. Carter lives in a manor, a grand, stately residence full of fine antiques, tapestries, and hand woven silk rugs.
And like all manors, they have a name, in this case River View. I based the Anderson family residence on the real-life home of Daniel Snyder, the owner of the Washington Redskins football team, which overlooks the Potomac River. Nice digs, huh?
These are just a few of Carter’s pricey bobbles. There are lots more of course, but they become less and less important as his feelings toward Gwen grow. To see how Gwen softens Carter’s heart, I hope you’ll give His Billion Dollar Baby a try!
His Billion Dollar Baby
by Lea Nolan
Burned by love and grieving over his brother’s death, sexy billionaire CEO Carter Anderson wants nothing more than to protect his family. So when beautiful and unassuming physical therapist Gwen Radley shows up at the funeral, pregnant with his brother’s baby, Carter’s certain she wants an interest in the Anderson empire—and both his suspicion and attraction grow when circumstances force Gwen to move into his family’s mansion.
An orphan, Gwen’s never wanted anything more than a family, and she finds in the Andersons a place she and her baby might belong. When Gwen’s therapy expertise leads to long hours of intense, late-night collaboration on a lucrative project, the attraction between her and Carter leads to a night of white-hot passion. But Carter’s distrust remains, leading them both to wonder if he will ever embrace his brother’s baby—or the love that’s blooming between them.
