This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage takes us into the very real world of Ann Patchett’s life. Stretching from her childhood to the present day, from a disastrous early marriage to a later happy one, it covers a multitude of topics, including relationships with family and friends, and charts the hard work and joy of writing, and the unexpected thrill of opening a bookstore.
As she shares stories of the people, places, ideals, and art to which she has remained indelibly committed, Ann Patchett brings into focus the large experiences and small moments that have shaped her as a daughter, wife, and writer.
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.

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."
Author's Note: LEVERAGE is certainly a great read on its own but if you're a fan of bad billionaires, you might want to check out the Billionaire Brothers series by Alexx Andria, too!
