The Ruthless Billionaire: A Clean Billionaire Romance (California Elite)
He needed to marry one of the women on his father’s list. She wanted to find her missing brother. Neither of them counted on falling in love.
Lucas Armstrong didn’t believe love existed. He was a ruthless man, ready to follow in his father’s footsteps. When he received an ultimatum to marry one of the women on his father’s preapproved list or risk losing his inheritance, he set out to win over a self-absorbed socialite, vacationing in Kauai. He wanted a marriage in name only so he could take over his father’s empire. Separate lives. No love. No attachments.
When Aria Dasher accepted a position cleaning Lucas’s house in Kauai, she had no idea she would fall for him. She was there for one reason only: she needed to save enough money to hire a private investigator. After she and her brother, Chase, were separated in foster care, he ran away and hadn’t been seen in four years.
Aria had to keep her eye on the goal and couldn’t allow any distractions in her life. She was determined to keep Lucas at arm’s length, and he was equally determined to push her away. A connection developed that neither of them anticipated, one that drastically changed everything.
But Lucas would have to do the unthinkable in order to be with Aria. He would have to give up his inheritance. And then there was that one issue with the secret he held. Once Aria found out, it would rip apart their relationship before it even had a chance.
This romance may be a needed break after the intensity of my current read. I’ve barely started this book and have no real opinions yet but I’m liking it so far.
Silent Night, Deadly Night by Richard Mabry
The colored lights on the snow gave it a holiday appearance, but the dead woman’s body in the yard added a grisly touch. How did Ina Bell Patrick die?
Who killed her? And why?
The dead woman had no direct heirs, so two nephews and a niece stood to inherit. Dr. Laura Morris was left to make all the arrangements, attorney Roger Morris could certainly use the money, and Zack Morris had disappeared two years earlier. Then there was neighbor and “best friend” Fay Autrey, who was certain the woman intended to leave her some money—a great deal of money.
The police were still looking for the killer who left the frozen body in the snow when it became apparent someone was trying to pick off the heirs, one by one. Who would win the race—the police or the killer?
It’s a slow book day and one new one is all we have today. Tomorrow may be better.
…on this day that is somewhat warmer than yesterday.
