Leverage (The Complete Set) (Billionaire Romance)

Alexx Andria
20

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."

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.

USA TODAY bestselling author brings you the baddest Buchanan in the bunch with The Buchanan's Redemption.

Some bad boys are so broken that it would take a miracle to put them back together again. Unless fate has a hand in the match-making. Find out how the most broken Buchanan billionaire finds love and redemption in the latest, hot-as-Georgia-asphalt continuation of the Billionaire Brothers series.

Vince Buchanan's brothers are off living their happily-ever-after but Vince knows there's no such fairytale ending for him. He's the most debauched, most morally ruined Buchanan in the bunch and he's just fine with that -- until he meets Emma Winters. A spitfire of indignant outrage and sexy intelligence, she's the kind of woman that would make a man want to spend every waking hour in bed or toss her out a window. Emma is dangerous. She makes him yearn for things he has no business even thinking about. He's not the settling down type. He's the leave-em-gasping-but-ultimately-leave-em type. But when he finds himself Emma's reluctant protector, he goes toe-to-toe with the redemption he won't admit to needing -- and falling hard for the one woman who isn't impressed by anything associated with the Buchanans.

Emma Winters has one goal -- take down Vince Buchanan and his club, Malvagio for what happened to her sister -- but when things go awry and Emma finds herself under Vince's dubious protection, she discovers that fate has very different plans for them both. She doesn't count on seeing past the wall Vince puts up to protect himself and she definitely doesn't count on the wild attraction to the hard-bodied billionaire who can do things to a woman's body that make her forget why she was out to destroy him in the first place.

Vince and Emma — two souls destined to love each other — fighting it with every breath they've got.

Excerpt

Suddenly Vince was behind her, pulling her tightly to him, whispering, "Does the little dove, like to watch?" Her cheeks burned but she nodded. Emma shuddered at the dark, husky chuckle at the shell of her ear and she couldn't look away. "There's nothing more beautiful than the sound of a woman cumming beneath your tongue." He nuzzled her neck. "I wonder...what do you sound like when you shatter apart? Are you quiet and sweet or do you cry like a banshee, shrieking and shaking until your voice is hoarse?" He didn't wait for her to answer, which was good because she didn't know the answer. She was no virgin but she'd never had an orgasm. "I bet you're loud, little dove. I bet when you come, you leave scratches on your lover's back." She squeezed her eyes shut and he reached down to cup her pubic mound, pressing against the sensitive skin and causing her eyes to pop open on a gasp. "You don't want to miss the best part," he told her, rubbing her with just enough pressure to make her squirm. "Watch..."

The Buchanan's Redemption is a contemporary romance novella suitable for mature readers.

A bad boy billionaire...a daddy?

In THE BUCHANAN'S BABY, Nolan Buchanan, the twin known as the cool head with a charming smile, finds himself in a shocking position when he meets sports trainer Shannon Garrity. Unlike most women in his world, all Shannon wants from him is one night of no-strings-attached horizontal mambo. He's game — why not? she's hot and he's always down for a little action — but when she sticks to her word and leaves him in the bed, he's more than a little disappointed. Worse? He doesn't even know her name. More than a little disturbed that he wanted more, he tries to forget about the sexy girl who happily left him behind.

Shannon Garrity never does reckless or spontaneous — except for that one time she went home with the hottest guy in the club for no-names, no-holds-barred, change-your-religion sex that left her aching, sore, and deliciously sated the next morning. However, six weeks later she realized that night with the hot guy with the beautiful eyes and dirty mind had created unexpected consequences. Suddenly a single mom, Shannon has no intentions of telling Nolan he'd fathered her child but fate has different plans.

Can Nolan put aside his wild bachelor life for a family of his own? Can Shannon trust that beneath that sexy bad boy billionaire veneer is a good guy just waiting for an equally good woman? Sparks fly when worlds and philosophies collide but a baby changes everything. (Contemporary romance, Alpha billionaire, billionaire romance, baby, HEA)


Excerpt:

"Nolan..."

The strangled whisper told volumes. She tightened her hold on the child, who turned to stare at him with her finger in her mouth. "What are you doing here?" she asked, her eyes darting past him. "You shouldn't be here."

"There are a lot of places I shouldn't go but here isn't one of them."

"Please, Nolan. This is my job. I can't get into this with you right now."

"Too bad," he said, not willing to budge. "I have some questions and you're going to answer them." A surprising shock of awareness rippled through Nolan as he stared at the woman he last saw three years ago. His gaze returned to the toddler who was about three years old and that sickening lurch in his gut returned. He stared harder at the little girl and his brain quickly began picking out the easy similarities between himself and her fair features. "She mine?" he asked in a hard tone. When the woman's lips tightened as if refusing to answer he repeated the question only this time his gaze narrowed with unrestrained anger. "Is she mine?"

"No."

He wanted to believe her so he could walk away but the sad truth was he knew she was lying. He could plainly see Buchanan traits in that child. "You're lying."

"What are you doing here?" she asked plaintively, her eyes growing wet. "How did you find me?"

"Funny thing about that. I didn't find you. Someone sent me an anonymous note saying I had a kid. Honestly, I thought it was a ruse to shake me down for some money. But I see now that whatever their motives, it had nothing to do with money. Surprisingly."

"And you think I sent that note?" she asked incredulously. "Well, I didn't."

"I'm beginning to realize that. Regardless of who sent the damned note, don't you think it might've been prudent to let me know I had fathered a child?"

"No." She lifted her chin. "I never had any intentions of you knowing."
