FORTUNE’S SECRET HEIR

by Allison Leigh

Cool, confident and in control: that’s Ben Robinson, the billionaire COO of Robinson Tech. With his imposing height and sharp blue eyes, he can convince anyone to do anything, but suddenly he feels like a fraud. The handsome Texan has just discovered his entire life has been a lie.

With the news that his father might actually be a long-lost—and very prodigal—Fortune, Ben trains his laser focus on determining the truth. He persuades sweet, earnest Ella Thomas to help him in his research; no one would ever suspect the part-time college student of subterfuge. Ella is sensitive and highly intuitive…in other words, Ben’s total opposite. And as she digs for his Fortune roots, she may also uncover the billionaire’s long-shuttered heart.

 

Movie Star Cast: 

Ben Fortune is very “Jamie Dornan” in a suit.  Ella Thomas was a wholesome-ish Emilia Clarke with auburn hair.

ALLISON LEIGH was borned in Southern California and has lived in several different cities in four different states.  She has been, at one time or another, a cosmetologist, a computer programmer, church secretary, and database administrator.  She currently makes her home in Arizona with her family whom she credits with remarkable patience for the hours she spends parked in front of her computer, and more importantly, for blessing her life with the kind of love and happiness that she wants her readers to continue sharing with the characters living in the pages of her books.

New York Times bestselling author B.J. Daniels continues her acclaimed Cardwell Ranch series!

The last of his clan to come home to Big Sky, Montana, Laramie Cardwell wasn’t planning to spend the holidays chasing an elusive cat burglar. He’s stunned to discover that the masked, black-clad figure he tackles to the snowy ground is a woman.

After a distracting and sizzling kiss, she flees Laramie, who’s knocked senseless by the culprit. Even though he manages to hold on to the stash in the melee, the sexy thief single-handedly steals Laramie’s heart! Now he’ll move any mountain to capture the mystery woman whose kiss still smolders on his lips.

 

Movie Star Cast:

I like Rachel Adams for the role and someone strong like Johnny Depp and a little quirky. What do you think?

B.J. DANIELS, a USA Today and New York Times bestselling author, wrote her first book after a career as an award-winning newspaper journalist and author of 37 published short stories. That first book, Odd Man Out, received a four and a half star review from Romantic Times magazine and went on to be nominated for Best Intrigue for that year. Since then she has won numerous awards including a career achievement award for romantic suspense and numerous nominations and awards for best book.

The Queen’s New Year Secret

by Maisey Yates

 

Kidnapped by her king!

As the clock strikes twelve on New Year’s Eve, the fairy tale is over for all of Petras when Queen Tabitha—refusing to live in a loveless marriage—asks her husband for a divorce. But anger erupts into passion, and when Tabitha flees the palace she’s carrying King Kairos’s heir!

Discovering her secret, Kairos kidnaps his wife. Against the backdrop of his secluded island paradise, he proves there’s no escaping his royal reach. He will use the desire that’s gone unsated between them for too long to ensure his wife returns to his side.

Movie Star Cast:

I don’t usually ‘cast’ actors as my characters, mostly because when I pick inspiration pics I like to go for a mood or feeling, versus nailing down exactly what everyone looks like.

BUT, I can definitely see the eternally handsome Henry Cavill as King Kairos from the Queen’s New Year Secret, especially when he’s looking stoic and hot in a suit.

Yes, that face is probably the face he made when his wife Tabitha asked him for a divorce.

cav2Or maybe this one?

And for Queen Tabitha, Kairos’s estranged wife, I would have to go with Kate Bosworth, who has the perfect classic beauty with a hint of girl next door for my Midwestern-Girl-Turned-Queen.

USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit.

In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard.
