Money Can't Buy What He Desperately Wants

Boston Kincaid is ruthless when comes to getting what he wants - and from the minute he sees Julianna Holly, he wants her. Eight weeks into their arrangement Julianna gets pregnant. Boston had always secretly yearned for children but doctors had dashed that dream when it was discovered he was nearly sterile. The shocking news that Julianna had conceived is a miracle but his joy dies when Julianna, freaked out by the prospect of having a child, runs away to the Caribbean.
Boston tracks Julianna to the small island of St. John, determined to remind Julianna of everything she stands to lose, but doesn't count on Julianna having some terms of her own.

To Love Him Is To Break Her Own Heart
Julianna is in a terrible position. Not only is she knocked up but she may have gone and fallen for the jerk, too. However, Julianna is no push-over and she might just have to find a way to forget about Boston Kincaid if she wants to save her heart. Dr. Miles Lassiter might be the way to forget about Boston -- if only her heart would cooperate. Miles is everything Boston is not but Boston is the one haunts her dreams and chases her thoughts no matter how hard she tries to forget him.

This is the second installment of a three-part serial and is meant to be read in order. Read the first installment for FREE! Enjoy!

EXCERPT
:

"If that baby is mine..."

"Quit saying that, you know it's yours!"

His gaze roamed hers and for the briefest moment she thought she saw desperate hope glimmering in his dark eyes that caused a traitorous leap in her heart. No, don't do that, she told herself, horrified that she would care about his feelings. He'd done this to her on purpose. He'd tricked her. That was the only answer. But even as she cursed him silently for what he'd done, she wasn't prepared for the soft touch of his lips brushing against hers as he said, "If what you say is true...then we truly created a miracle and nothing will keep me from my child." He deepened the kiss and her knees threatened to buckle, damn him. "Not even if its mother hates me," he murmured and she swallowed a cry as he abruptly let her go. "Richard will take you home. I have calls to make."

And then he left her to stare after him. Julianna wiped away the remnant of his kisses and ground the tears from her eyes. She ought to grab a cab and screw Boston with his dictates but even as the defiant thought blazed across her thoughts, she sank back down on the bed and knew she'd await Richard to ferry her back to Boston's house because in a way, his place had become more like home than her apartment, even with the gaudy gold-plated bathroom fixtures that she hated.

Why? Ah crap, because as much as she hated to admit it...it was because at night, Boston crawled into bed with her and they slept entwined with one another, as if they were carved from the same block of wood to fit together. Dumb bad luck.

Julianna glanced down at her belly and her breath hitched in her throat as the sobering thought of motherhood weighed on her shoulders.

She squeezed her eyes shut and a tentacle of fear reached from a dark place and curled around her thoughts. Women died giving birth. It was rare -- but it happened. It was a worst-case scenario...and it'd happened to someone she'd loved very much.

It might be irrational to fear the same fate but by the time Richard had arrived to pick her up, she was fighting the urge to lose whatever food remained in her stomach.

Bottom line? She was afraid of this baby.

And she was ashamed to admit it.

I could make her. Or break her.
I plan to do both…
 
I don’t like the word ‘no.’
Especially when the word comes from the lips of the curviest, most gorgeous blonde I’ve ever seen. Elizabeth Downing thinks she can give me the brush-off. Maybe because she has no idea what kind of cold, ruthless bastard she’s dealing with. 

Or that I own the best art gallery in town.

She wants to sell her paintings. I can make that happen. She wants to support her disabled sister. I can make that happen too. I can make her dreams come true, but they won’t come cheap.
 
Once she signs my iron-clad contract, I’ll own her. She’s a virgin and has no clue about the dark things I have in store for her soft, tempting and untouched body…


EXCERPT:

“You have a lot to learn, my pet,” he warned, though he seemed to take pleasure in the idea of doling out the lesson. “You’ve broken the rules with impunity and it’s my job as your master to teach you the error of your ways.”

“You’re not my master,” she spat, eyes burning at the pain of his grip. She knew finger bruises were going to pop along her arm where his fingertips dug. “I’m a human being! You can’t own me and you never will.”

“You signed a contract. No matter that you chafe at the conditions after the fact — you will adhere to the letter of my law or face the consequences.”

“I don’t want to be your slave and you don’t have the right to demand access to my private thoughts and feelings,” she said, choking on her tears. “Why are you doing this to me? I’m nobody! I’ve never done anything to deserve this crap that’s happening to me.”

“Life isn’t fair,” he returned coldly. “You’re not a child; it’s time to stop acting like one. Life is what you make it. You took the opportunity presented to you and now you have to see it through. End of story.”

Author's Note: The Buchanan billionaires are swoon-worthy book boyfriends but the road to bliss is pretty rocky! If heart-pounding romance and bigger-than-life heroes are your thing, I'm about to become your new best friend because that's what my books are all about. Guaranteed HEA, I promise.

Boston Kincaid -- obscenely rich, hopelessly arrogant, and devastatingly hot -- is about to meet his match. 

In Alexx Andria's bundled LEVERAGE series, love doesn't come easily but the journey is a hot, sweaty ride to a sweet happily-ever-after. 

Billionaire Boston Kincaid is ruthlessly single-minded in his pursuit of Julianna Holly, his runaway pregnant mistress. No one takes Boston for a ride -- least of all a woman. But once he tracks Julianna to the tiny Caribbean island of St. John, he realizes Julianna might just be the one holding all the cards and he doesn't know how to handle himself. Determined to win at all costs, Boston finds himself lost, up against terrible odds, and fighting self-destruction. 

Julianna never imagined the love of her life would turn out to be the most domineering, emotionally constipated, rich man on the planet. But just because she's carrying his baby, doesn't mean Julianna is going to let him push her around. The heart wants what the heart wants...until a sexy, sweet doctor enters the mix. Suddenly, Julianna doesn't know which way to turn. Miles represents stability; Boston, passion. She knows she needs to make the right choice for her baby but her brain says one thing and her heart another. 

Can Boston be the man Julianna needs him to be? Or will he continue to push away the one person who ever meant anything to him? Both will discover when the stakes are high, failure isn't an option.

EXCERPT: 

He grabbed her arm and hauled her up close. Too close, her mind babbled as her hormones kicked into overdrive. Why did he have to smell like sweet sin and seductive darkness? She longed to wrap her arms around him and close her eyes for just a moment, to lose herself in the pleasure that he could give her. Just for a moment. But that wasn't possible. Her dignity and her pride wouldn't allow it. "I didn't lie," he said softly as she stared up at him. "What I told you was the truth as I knew it. I wasn't supposed to be able to father children. All I can say is, we created a miracle," he said, taking another step forward, forcing her back toward the bedroom. Oh no, not the bedroom. She'd lose all sense of reason if he managed to get her on her back. Or her hands and knees. Or her stomach. Oh hell, that wasn't helping. "I've missed you," he said, against the shell of her ear, causing a shiver to ricochet down her arm. "I was going crazy without you." His mouth traveled down the column of her neck and she bit her lip to keep from moaning. Damn, she'd missed this. Julianna gave him the tiniest bit of encouragement by tilting her neck ever so slightly and he capitalized on it immediately, sucking the tender flesh into his hot mouth, catching her when her knees buckled. "Tell me you missed me," he ordered softly and she shook her head. "Going to make me work for it?" He chuckled as if he approved of the challenge but he warned in a silky tone that robbed her of sanity, "I'm going to make you beg."

Get ready to immerse yourself in the wealthy life of Boston Kincaid, the newest billionaire romance from best-selling erotic romance author, Alexx Andria.

A Man Who Believes Money Can Buy Anything...

Boston Kincaid is ruthless when comes to getting what he wants - and from the minute he sees Julianna Holly, he wants her in his bed -- no matter the cost. Boston is the kind of guy who doesn't take no for an answer and he'll use just about anything as leverage. When he discovers Julianna's weak spot, he exploits it for his own debauched end. 

Will Discover Something Priceless. 

When Julianna finds herself within Boston's crosshairs, she doesn't stand a chance. Boston knows just how to tighten the screws so that she'll agree to anything. Julianna signs on the dotted line of Boston's indecent proposal to help save her brother but she vows Boston will never have access to her heart -- no matter how attracted she is to the ruthless billionaire.

But neither realize how one scandalous proposal will change their lives forever. 

This is the first installment of a three-part serial and must be read in order to enjoy the full arc of the story.

Excerpt:

"How can you be so cruel? I don't understand. What did I do to deserve this?"

"Perhaps the question should be how did you get so lucky? Do you realize how many women would love to be in your position? I'm willing to give you something no one else would ever be able to."

"Yes, but the price is my soul."

"Please. Don't be so dramatic. I'm asking for the use of your body for a predetermined space of time. And for that right, I will pay you handsomely as well as provide your brother with the care he so desperately needs to resume his life. Imagine, if you weren't caring for an injured brother, perhaps you could go back to school or stop working two jobs. If you realign your thinking, what I'm offering you is truly a blessing."

Her stare narrowed. "Only someone who has never valued anything more than what money could buy would say something like that."

"Perhaps. Would you like to know more about your new place in life?"

"I haven't said yes."

"A formality. You and I both know you're going to say yes. You would be a fool to say no and I know you're not fool."The defiance died in her eyes and he knew he had her. Lust pounded through his veins at his victory and his erection surged against his zipper. "Take a seat. We shall discuss terms." He waited for her to slowly sink into the chair before continuing. "For the sum of $1 million you will move into my home and into my bed. You will tend to all of my needs. Your body belongs to me. I will provide you with a new wardrobe, a new car, and spending money. In addition I will see to it that your brother receives the best care for his rehabilitation."

She swallowed and there was a subtle shake to her voice as she asked, "And when will this relationship start?"

He leaned forward, pinning her with his gaze. "Immediately," he answered silkily and she shuddered. "Do you agree to my terms?"

"I need time to think about it."

"No. Decide now."

Though I give you my deepest gratitude for building the anticipation of what I’m sure will be an epic culmination to an amazing series. " -Heroes and Heartbreakers

"Talon and Jade's chemistry sizzles and the love scenes will melt your heart and your Kindle." -The Book Sirens

"I am loving this series so freaking much… The story line is one that will have you completely engrossed…" -Wicked Babes Blog

Synopsis

While she resolves to move on, she still longs for the passion she and Talon shared…and when her boss asks her to dig up information on the Steels, she’s only too happy to comply. Talon and his brothers are hiding something, and Jade is determined to find out what it is.

The moment Talon saw Jade he wanted her, ached for her, craved her…and now his desire has become his obsession. He knows she deserves better than his broken soul, but he can’t stay away from her, and he finally confesses his love.

But as Talon begins his journey of healing, Jade uncovers some startling secrets…

IT'S ABOUT TO GET HOT...

As far as Dr. Miles Lassiter is concerned, Hollywood sweetheart Dani St. Claire is the devil. 

Sure, she’s beautiful but that gorgeous face and fire-red hair is just a front for a soul-sucking man-eater — and he should know. At one time Miles was head-over-heels in love with the starlet but then she crushed his heart and didn’t bother to look back. So Miles left L.A. and everything associated with Dani behind, trading heartache for warm sand and lazy Caribbean waves.

But now Dani’s in trouble.

Helping Dani is the last thing Miles wants to do after she broke his heart but can he just walk away when she’s all alone?

Find out in USA TODAY bestselling author Alexx Andria’s sensually sweet sequel to the LEVERAGE series in STILL INTO YOU.

***Author's note****

This book was previously released as FALLING FROM GRACE.

EXCERPT:

"Does this feel bad?"

"Depends on your definition of bad." His arms tightened around her drawing her close. He stared down at her, losing himself for just a moment in her gaze. "Jesus, Dani, what are you doing to me?"

"The same thing that you do to me," she admitted in a breathless whisper before sealing her mouth to his for a kiss that electrified every nerve ending and sent her brain scuttling for shelter. His tongue gently met hers in an exploratory journey that was both reluctant and urgent as if he were fighting his own desire and that was just fine with her because she understood his dual tendencies and matched it with her own. "I've missed you, Miles," she said against his mouth, fighting the tears that immediately sprung to her eyes. His grip tightened and a small groan escaped as she felt the hardened ridge of his length pressing against her groin, igniting a small fire inside her belly. Her hand crept into the lazy waves of his hair and caught a grip, drawing him even nearer to her. She wanted to devour him, to make him a part of her so she'd never feel alone again. Their kiss changed in tempo and went from gentle to urgent and Dani lost all sense of reason. She wanted to feel him inside her, to know his touch again, and no amount of good sense was going to intrude on her most ardent desire. But too soon, Miles began to put on the brakes, slowing his sensual attack until finally, they were apart, both breathing heavily and wondering what the next step would be between them. Dani could only hope that he would sweep her up in his arms and make love to her the way he used to but she knew in her heart of hearts that she was hoping for the impossible.

***STILL INTO YOU is part of a series that originated as a SERIAL (LEVERAGE, Parts 1-3 and the Complete Set). It is a great stand-alone read but the reading experience is that much more fun by reading LEVERAGE first.
