Heir to a billion-dollar fortune, Peter Morgan has a healthy ego and cynical view on women. Abandoned by his mother and raised by a controlling, manipulative father, Peter trusts no one, especially with his heart. He knows he can have any woman he wants, but he also knows they are only after him for the money. 

He’s always kept his women at arm’s length, never letting anyone get close or stick around for long. It’s not like he’s afraid of commitment, he just chooses to be smart. So when his brother makes a bet that Peter can’t date the same woman for 30 days, the game is on. Peter is sure he can woo for one month and then walk away heart unscathed, but the woman his brother picks changes all the rules.

Former Marine Belle Jordan has lived through the scandal of being jilted at the altar. Now she protects her heart, knowing she can never go through that kind of heartbreak again. Now, the brother of the woman who tore her life apart is pursuing her with an intensity that is hard to resist. Peter Morgan is gorgeous, sexy, and rich beyond her imagination. Belle has no idea what he could see in her. She’s certainly not like the rich and glamorous women he usually dates. Her brain says to stay far away, but her heart wants to trust his seductive words. 

Before long, Peter finds that Belle is turning his cynical world on its head and awakening his long-dormant heart. And when the truth comes out about the secret bet, Peter fears he may lose the one woman who can look past the dollar signs to see the man behind the throne.

About the author

 USA Today Bestselling Author, Victoria Pinder grew up in Irish Catholic Boston before moving to the Miami sun. She’s worked in engineering, after passing many tests proving how easy Math came to her. Then hating her life at the age of twenty four, she decided to go to law school. Four years later, after passing the bar and practicing very little, she realized that she hates the practice of law. She refused to one day turn 50 and realize she had nothing but her career and hours at a desk. After realizing she needed change, she became a high school teacher. Teaching is rewarding, but writing is a passion.

During all this time, she always wrote stories to entertain herself or calm down. Her parents are practical minded people demanding a job, and Victoria spent too many years living other people’s dreams, but when she sat down to see what skill she had that matched what she enjoyed doing, writing became so obvious. The middle school year book when someone wrote in it that one day she’d be a writer made sense when she turned thirty.

She’s always been determined. She is amazing, adventurous and assured on a regular basis. Her website is  www.victoriapinder.com.
