New Release Spotlight: The Billionaire's Paradise by Victoria Davies

Avery Clark loves her life. She travels the world doing a job that keeps her so busy she can’t think about how lonely she is or the fact that she hasn’t had day off in two years. This trip to paradise is a chance for her to get some sun and have a Mai Tai or three. That is until she runs into billionaire hotel mogul Hayden Wexton, who is absolutely one hundred percent off limits.

Hayden Wexton is a man who knows what he wants. As soon as he sees Avery, he can’t get her out of his head. He’s determined to show her life can be fun and she can still get her work done. Only, the more time he spends with her, the more she gets under his skin. That was definitely not a part of his plan.

Avery never makes mistakes, but with Hayden, well, hell, he might just be the best mistake she’s ever made.

I’m sorry about your ex,” he said. “Is he the reason you are so determined not to sleep with me again?”

Jon does not control my actions anymore,” she replied. “Shockingly, my desire to keep my clothes on is all me.”

There’s plenty we could do with your clothes on,” he purred, his eyes running over her flowing skirt. “I’m nothing if not a creative problem-solver.”

She rolled her eyes. What had she been thinking? That one moment of vulnerability meant there were complexities to him she hadn’t been aware of? Hayden Wexton had the emotional depths of a birdbath, and she’d do well to remember it.

Is it the chase?” she asked, leaning toward him. “Is that why you’re not letting this go?”

I’ve had women play hard to get before.”

Did you get on a plane for any of them?”

His eyes met hers. “No.”

A shiver ran down her spine. She shouldn’t be effected by the information, and yet there was no stopping the pleasure unfurling inside her.

You’re not special, she scolded herself. You’re just a game to a bored billionaire. Don’t for a second think you mean more to him than some fun in the sack.

Because if she let herself think about that, she’d have to think about the way her fingers itched to brush aside the curl hanging over his forehead. She’d have to acknowledge how her body leaped when he walked into a room. How her dreams were filled with the memory of his lips running over her naked body.

There was too much to want about Hayden, and if she loosened the harsh grip she kept on her self-control, she’d be lost to him.

A disastrous possibility she never wanted to give in to.

How long are you going to pursue me?” she asked him. “I’m telling you now, you don’t have a chance of changing my mind.”

His eyes flicked to her lips. “There are worse ways to spend one’s time than attempting to seduce a devastatingly beautiful woman in paradise.”

She laughed. “Devastatingly beautiful woman, huh? I wonder how many others you’ve said those words to.”

Too many to count,” he replied smoothly. “But I never meant them until you."

Victoria Davies’s passion for writing started young. Luckily she had a family who encouraged believing in magic and embracing imagination. From stories quickly scribbled in diaries, her love of storytelling developed. Since then her characters may have evolved and her plots may have grown decidedly more steamy but she never lost her love of the written word. Writing is not only a way to silence the wonderful voices in her head, but it also allows her to share her passions with her readers.
