I love this one – it’s the perfect story to help get you in the mood for the holidays now that the weather has turned it cold here in the US!
Christmas with the Billionaire
A Black-Heart Series Christmas Novella
by Susan Stephens
This sizzling, feel-good holiday novella introduces USA Today bestselling author Susan Stephens’ all-new Black-Heart series.
Fabulously wealthy entrepreneur Jason Kent hates Christmas.
What Jason wants, Jason gets—which means solitude over the holidays to give him chance plot his next mega-value business deal. Content in his luxurious penthouse apartment Jason is not prepared for the arrival of the whirlwind of change and challenge that is Ms Kate Black.
Enter Kate—no-nonsense sheep farmer’s daughter from the North of England.
House-sitting for a member of the British aristocracy over the holidays, Kate refuses to sit back and do nothing when she learns that people in her block are going to be on their own over Christmas. Aided by the scruffy little yappy dog she has also taken on, Kate makes it her mission to bring everyone in her snooty building together.
Working flat out to throw the party of the year, Kate meets an unexpected obstacle in the form of a man who turns her sturdy bones to jelly. With her no nonsense attitude to sex, Kate soon finds that she is a lot more deeply involved than she had intended to become with a man whose appetite for life might match her own, but who travels on a very different track.
Lacing her fingers through his hair, she relished how good he felt; so big, so strong, his powerful body grinding into hers. He tasted of everything good, and he smelled of hard liquor and hot man. He was a drugging delight with a mouth so firm and sexy she would never get enough of his kisses. His tongue probed the seam of her mouth until she surrendered, and then he mimicked another act that made her moan and ache with need.
“Let’s take a pause.”
Hearing the amusement in his voice, she stepped back. “Is that all you’ve got, Mr. Kent?”
With a growl, he pinned her against the wall. The fire in his eyes excited her. The touch of his hands inflamed her. His kisses tormented her. She was falling fast without a safety net, and for once in her life she didn’t want to be saved.
She pulled back in the nick of time, telling herself firmly, this is Jason Kent, billionaire, a man who will take anything freely given, while you are Kate Black, farmer’s daughter with more sense than to give anything away for free. A down-to-earth attitude toward sex was one thing, but she’d gotten her fingers burned before. She wasn’t going to become Jason Kent’s latest acquisition, or make herself available whenever it suited him.
“I’m hosting this party, and I have to get back. I have guests.” He was blocking her way. She glanced at the door. “Move, please.”
“You’re quite a surprising woman, Ms. Black.”
“And you’re quite a roadblock. Now, move.”
Susan Stephens was a professional singer before meeting her husband on the tiny Mediterranean island of Malta.
In true romance style they met on Monday, became engaged on Friday and were married three months later. They are still very much in love, though Susan does not advise her three children to return home with a similar story as she may not take the news with the same fortitude as her own mother!
Susan had written several non-fiction books when fate took a hand. At a charity costume ball there was an after-dinner auction. One of the lots – ‘Spend A Day With An Author’ – had been donated by bestselling Mills & Boon author Penny Jordan. Knowing Susan loved writing romance, her husband bought this lot, and Penny was to become not just a great friend, but a wonderful mentor who encouraged Susan to follow her dreams.
Susan loves her family, her pets, her friends and her writing. She enjoys entertaining, travel and going to theatre and concerts. She reads voraciously, knits, cooks and plays the piano to relax, and can also be found throwing herself off mountains on a pair of skis or galloping through the countryside.
Most of all Susan loves to hear from her readers all around the world!
