A sexy billionaire romance. Perfect for fans of books like FIFTY SHADES of GREY and BARED TO YOU. 

I believed in sex, once upon a time. And passion. But now my life as a single, divorced career girl living alone in New York City was all about work. I hadn't had a date in years. 

But then he came along . . . Alexandre Chevalier. The French CEO billionaire of HookedUp, the social media phenomenon that had taken the world by storm. 
He was the most beautiful man I'd ever seen, and with eyes so green they seared into my soul. 
Like a flash of lightning he struck me down . . . his touch was electric, and I knew my life was irrevocably changed. I'd never be the same again. 

He awakened every fiber of my being, ignited every cell in my body. 
And just when I thought things couldn't be more perfect . . . 
It all came crashing down. 
                                         * 

I'd had it with all the crazy women in my life: the models, the movie stars, even my power-hungry sister and business partner. If you'd had a past like mine, you'd understand. 
I just wanted a normal relationship with a normal woman . . . 

And then I met her . . . Pearl Robinson. 
She was perfect for me. 
Or so I thought. 
But I was in for a shocking surprise when I found out the truth . . . 
Of who she really was. 


HOOKED UP is a complete series of three, full-length novels averaging 400+ print pages each (90,000 words each book). All books released and available. Dual POV throughout.

"If you like books like Beautiful Disaster you'll love this. A sexy, steamy romance with just enough angst to keep you on the edge. Shooting Star is HOT, HOT, HOT!!"-Literary Lovers Blog. 

"An Addictive, sexy, and intense Hollywood love story. Turn up the air con . . . this is one, hot read."- Angie's Hearthrobs and Heroes.  

Movie director Jake Wild lives up to his name: he's the wildest player in town. He's also Hollywood royalty. From a family dynasty of powerful directors and producers, Jake's home is a movie set. With reams of hot starlets at his beck and call, Jake can get any woman he wants. But with his new movie, Skye's The Limit in pre-production, he's decided it's time to get serious and change his philandering ways.  

Oscar-winning Star Davis also lives up to her name. She's an A-list megastar. Hell-raisingly beautiful, she tosses men aside like used Kleenex. She commands 20 million per movie--or at least did until drugs, alcohol, wild partying, and a police arrest sent her into rehab. Now she's out, squeaky clean, and determined to win the role she was born to play: the lead in Skye's The Limit - ready to re-conquer Hollywood. 

But there's just one problem: Jake doesn't want this "liability on legs" near his precious movie. But Star has wily ways of getting what she wants. And apart from the role of Skye, what she wants is Jake right where he belongs: 

Under her thumb. 

Lights, camera, action . . . 

But the action is not what Jake expected.

Sexy strong language and situations.

**Sexy strong language and romantic erotica** 

I wanted him to love me. To the point of obsession. He filled my dreams, my waking hours, my fantasies. Brooding, controlling, sexy-as-sin Daniel Glass: my director, my mentor, my teacher. The uncompromising, award winning billionaire, the talent everyone gave their right arm to work with . . . he invaded every part of me.

But he was off-limits.

Unrequited love can get to you. It can eat at your soul. Meet the right man at the wrong time and you're screwed.

But then everything changed when I won the leading role in the steamy Hollywood movie, The Dark Edge of Love, with Daniel once again as my director. And his situation had changed: his wife had unexpectedly died in a freak accident. For the first time ever, the chance to get intimate with him was mine for the taking.
 
But there were demons from his past out to destroy everything. Secrets. Lies.

Obsession can be dangerous.

Glass can cut . . .

This book continues from where we left off in Pearl, from Alexandre’s point of view, and continues the story BEYOND Shimmers of Pearl, so has a completely different ending than the trilogy. As with Pearl, there are many scenes in this novel that do not feature in The Pearl Trilogy. 

Belle Pearl is the fifth book and the conclusion to Arianne Richmonde’s bestselling books in The Pearl Series: Shades of Pearl, Shadows of Pearl, Shimmers of Pearl, and Pearl; the tumultuous and heart-rending love story between forty-year-old documentary producer, Pearl Robinson, and French Internet billionaire, Alexandre Chevalier, fifteen years her junior. 

At only twenty-five, Alexandre Chevalier is a billionaire. His social media site, HookedUp, is more popular than Twitter, more global than Facebook. With his devastating looks, alluring charm, and his immense wealth, he has women falling at his feet, desperate for his attention—ex girlfriends and an ex-fiancée who simply cannot let him go. Although his heart is set on only Pearl, she tests him to his limits and proves that she is even more damaged than he first believed. 

Alexandre’s dark and dysfunctional past makes him crave a normal relationship with Pearl but he soon finds out that she is anything but your average woman. However, he believes that they are both two peas in the same dysfunctional pod, made to ‘dis-function’ together, and is determined to make their union work. But Pearl puts Alexandre in a position where he is made to choose. His loyalties are split, his patience torn. 

After many trials, misunderstandings, and revelations of dark secrets, their wedding finally ensues and it looks as if their happily ever after is sealed.

Until something unforeseen rips their world apart. 

This is novel #5 - the conclusion to The Pearl Series and is by no means stand-alone.
