« Il aime le champagne, moi, je raffole des macarons... Le mariage idéal ? » Si l’on m’avait dit qu’avec LUI, la vie deviendrait aussi intense… L’avoir rencontré, c’était plus palpitant qu’un voyage dans un pays exotique, plus excitant qu’une journée de shopping le premier jour des soldes, plus fou que d’avoir gagné le gros lot au Loto, plus exquis que tous les éclairs au chocolat, les mille-feuilles et les macarons réunis en une seule pâtisserie. Mieux que tout ce que j’avais vécu jusqu’à maintenant. Mais à l’heure où je vous parle, j’ai peut-être tout perdu… Laissez-moi vous raconter. Je vous conseille de vous asseoir et de vous installer confortablement car si l’histoire qui va suivre est assez incroyable, elle n’en est pas moins véridique. Voilà comment j’en suis arrivée là… SEXY, drôle, totalement addictif ! Mina Shepard est sans aucun doute une auteure à suivre ! Elle dépeint avec énormément d’humour l’univers qui l’entoure et insuffle avec une formidable énergie la vie à ses personnages. Mon milliardaire, mon mariage et moi est son premier roman. Ce livre regroupe tous les e-Books de la série (volumes 1 à 3). Cette édition est complète et non censurée, il n’y a pas de scènes coupées.
Maddy Wainright has given up on marriage - and men. After dating way too many losers who aren't capable of appreciating her for who she is, she's about ready to resign herself to a life of spinsterhood. Until her insanely rich boss Daniel Thorne comes along with an offer she simply can't refuse. He proposes a marriage of convenience - one that would allow Maddy to live in the lap of luxury for a year, and Mr. Thorne to stay in the country that has become his home. At the end of their arrangement, Maddy will walk away with a cool two million dollars. All she has to do is move into his mansion, put on a convincing show in public, and endure a few INS interviews, for which she will be thoroughly prepped. It's a big risk, but one Maddy might just be willing to take, considering the payoff. At first, it's all business. But when the gentle touches, passionate kisses, and lingering looks they have to give each other in public start spilling over into their private life, Daniel and his devious mind take Maddy to heights of pleasure she's never experienced. And the more she gets to know him, the more she feels that wistful tug in her chest every time he puts his arm around her in public. Before long, she finds herself wishing it were real. As time goes on, Maddy finds herself wondering if two million dollars will be enough to cover the cost of repairing a broken heart. But Mr. Thorne may have yet another secret in store...

Publisher: Addictive Publishing
Enemies or lovers? Liam, a successful young lawyer, is allergic to love. He’s always between business trips and, devastated by a dark secret, he has put a lock on his heart. That’s the way he likes it. But when he crosses paths with Zoe, all his principles fly out the window. Zoe is the opposite of his usual conquests: natural, funny, impetuous... and she has no plans to make room in her life for a man. *** I watch her delicate hands work over my torso, becoming intoxicated by her scent rising to meet me from her neck. “I’m so sorry,” she insists, now scrubbing the fabric with concentration, taking breaks to dab her forehead with her arm. She’s damaging my designer shirt. Instead of pointing that out to her, I observe her every movement. I surprise her a few times as she nibbles her thumb. A habit that reveals how nervous she actually is. “I’ll pay for the dry cleaning, of course. And free coffee for a week.” I don't reply. I resist the temptation to run my hand through her long, silky hair. I find her beautiful: her fragility, embarrassment, simplicity. “A month?” she offers, obviously worried by my silence. “It’s fine for the coffee. A week and we’re even,” I reassure her. "For the dry cleaning, I'll take care of it. Don’t worry about the clothes. It could happen to anyone.” She stops and looks at me, smiling, relieved by my pacifist reaction. “I think your shirt is ruined,” she announces, nibbling her lower lip. “Yeah, I think you’re right about that!” I agree, laughing. I’m speechless when she starts working on my pants, kneeling down between my legs. Is this a joke? I thought this kind of thing only happened in movies!
Except there’s nothing funny about the position. On the contrary. The pressure she’s putting on my crotch awakens sensations in my entire body. My imagination becomes quickly uncontrollable. I want her. Forbidden thoughts start to creep into my mind. To touch her. Caress her. Kiss her. She suddenly stops, as if she had heard my inappropriate thoughts. Time stands still for a second, and the noise of the café customers dies down. Here we are, the two of us, completely isolated from the rest of the world. *** After the success of Challenge Me, Avril Rose is back with a funny and touching romance told by two distinct voices.
