Romance | Romance Historical

The first installment of a sexy series about a modern-day heroine writing historical novels based on her romantic misadventures with the Bad Boy Billionaire.

Jane Sparks has accidentally announced her engagement on Facebook—to the infamous Bad Boy Billionaire, Duke Austen. As soon as it's discovered that Jane and Duke barely know each other (one hot kiss at a party does not a relationship make), she'll be completely humiliated. And then Duke does something Jane never expected: He plays along with her charade.

With his hard-partying playboy reputation jeopardizing a 150-million-dollar investment deal, Duke realizes an engagement with the sexy but oh-so-proper librarian could be just the thing to repair his reputation. This good girl tempts him to be very wicked … but only with her. It's unprecedented. Inconceivable. Totally alluring.

As the unlikely match of librarian and tech entrepreneur set out to convince the world—and the internet—that their love is real, something unexpected happens: They start falling for each other. But Jane is secretly writing a historical romance novel that could expose their carefully constructed romance … unless two perfect strangers are content to be perfectly scandalous together.

Re: The Bad Boy Billionaire's Wicked Arrangement

Fabulous excerpt, can't wait to read this! And for the record, I'd like to meet a bad boy billionaire at a fancy ball in a swanky hotel! :-)
(Anita H 4:03am December 31, 2013)

I'd love it if someone could list all the places where one
might find a billionaire bad boy because they certainly don't
grow on trees! I'd like to meet one in a coffee shop
somewhere, over a latte with whipped cream!
Ada H. 4:34am December 31, 2013)

Can't wait to read this book....thank you!
Bonnie Capuano 7:35am December 31, 2013)

Sounds like an interesting read is in store with this one.
Melanie Backus 8:57am December 31, 2013)

Interesting...I'm thinking somewhere totally off
guard...maybe he ran in to a book store for a gift or
something...and we happened to "bump" into to each
other....or since I can be kinda a klutz sometimes...maybe I
knock him over as he is trying to pass me as he is entering
a building as I'm leaving...ahhhh the chance
Gosh darn it now I have to go reel in my evil little mind...
Bj Gaskill 9:29am December 31, 2013)

I would assume that any Billionaires would be hard to find, because they aren't the type to really want to spend any money, so they would be a bit of a recluse. Why do I say this?? Any of my acquaintances that I know who have money, are the least likely to want to part with it. If they go out, it's to places that don't charge admission, because they don't want to part with their money. Therefore, I think I'd like to meet my Billionaire along the beach somewhere, where I'm shell and beach glass hunting, so that I could break the ice, so to speak. Then I'd be able to talk about the wonderful items that could be made from these gifts from the sea. Your book sounds intriguing, and I'm looking forward to reading it. Have a Happy and Healthy New Year!!
Peggy Roberson 10:49am December 31, 2013)

If I were a woman, I'd want to meet him at a swanky party!
Richard Proctor 10:51am December 31, 2013)

Actually the library is not a bad place. Or a swimming pool irks as well.
Janet Saunders 11:20am December 31, 2013)

Sounds like an interesting story, I'd love to read it.
Wilma Frana 11:29am December 31, 2013)

Cheryl Castings 11:41am December 31, 2013)

I would love to win this book!
Denise Austin 12:08pm December 31, 2013)

I'm like Jane in that I'm not big on breaking rules. I'm not a
total goody two shoes but I'm also not good at following any
plans I make. I'm definitely someone for whom everything goes
Chanpreet Singh 12:38pm December 31, 2013)

In a candlelit restaurant!
Maria Proctor 1:05pm December 31, 2013)

I would want to meet him at a New Year's Eve party! Happy New Year!
Maureen Emmons 1:23pm December 31, 2013)

Kim C 1:37pm December 31, 2013)

tbr stack. Thanks for sharing the excerpt.
Happy New Years Eve
Lori Harvey 1:43pm December 31, 2013)

I'd put on my mask and follow him too. Can't wait to read the
rest of it. Happy New Year!
Lisa White 2:40pm December 31, 2013)

Where would I want to meet... oh anywhere! Where I least expect it!
Colleen Conklin 3:30pm December 31, 2013)

Rita Wray 5:14pm December 31, 2013)

I'd want to meet him on the golf course--then we'd have something in common.
Sue Farrell 5:29pm December 31, 2013)

Oh my, I loved that excerpt! I'd love to meet a bad boy billionaire on a cruise ship. That way he's trapped unless he's an exceptionally good swimmer. LOL
Marcy Shuler 6:01pm December 31, 2013)

Loved your excerpt. If I were to meet a bad boy billionaire I think I would like to meet him on vacation--I'll be in Las Vegas later in the year so I'll be looking for him. Happy New Year Everyone!
Sharon Extine 6:32pm December 31, 2013)

Calien Laure 9:52pm December 31, 2013)

Kai Wong 10:06pm December 31, 2013)

I'd love to meet him at the supermarket! We can talk over produce and then,
maybe, he'll offer to pay for my groceries and I'll offer to make dinner.

Happy New Year, Maya!
Khristine C Chua 10:22pm December 31, 2013)

The grocery store or a restauraunt is where I'd probably meet my famous man. Maya, your book sounds good.

Happy new year! And thanks for the chance to win.
Kantu Malhotra 11:19am January 2, 2014)

Can't wait to read the book. I become an instant fan after reading it's
historical counterpart. ;-) hmm where would one meet a billionaire? I'd love
to meet one in an unlikely place. Maybe a volunteer event where the
volunteers have to get down and dirty to actually help (not just donate
money and go to a party) maybe feeding homeless or painting a home or
cleaning up a beach. It'd be awesome for them to do that even though they
could pay their way through charity.
Nathanie Serrano 12:53pm January 2, 2014)

I'd want to meet my bad boy billionaire in my favorite city, San Francisco, at the Top of the Mark Bar & Restaurant, where we could listen to piano music, sip a glass or two of bubbly and chat for hours. :-) jdh2690@gmail.com

Cindy Hamilton 4:49pm January 2, 2014)

Shay Alford 6:24pm January 2, 2014)

If I were younger, and more importantly - single, I'd like to
meet him at a New Year's Eve party and be with him at the
stroke of midnight! :-)
Glenda Martillotti 9:27pm January 2, 2014)

I wouldn't mind meeting a bad boy billionaire. Now, if he
also secretly was a member of a MC and moonlighted as a
singer, that would be the icing on the cake.
Janice Unger 9:35pm January 2, 2014)

I may have to start reading again.
Nikki Chaffin 10:19pm January 2, 2014)

Out for BBQ, you're more your self when you have to get messy,
no pretences.

Sounds like a good story, my poor TBR pile just keeps growing and growing.
Earlene Gillespie 5:06pm January 3, 2014)

I really wouldn't be picky as to where I could meet a billionaire bad boy
as long as I could meet one :) I've had a weakness for bad boys since my
first boyfriend at 14 and the billions would be a very nice extra...lol
Kim Holliday 3:22am January 4, 2014)

Who doesn't want a bad boy billionaire? Can't wait to read
this, like all of Maya's books. It's already pre-ordered on
Amazon. :-)
Michele Friedman 10:18am January 4, 2014)

Actually, your setting sounds perfect! In a library & in disguise!

Leslie Rodriguez 6:55pm January 8, 2014)

Great excerpt! This book is definitely going on my wishlist. I would love to meet a billionaire on a romantic beach in the Caribbean.

Eva Minaskanian 12:30pm January 10, 2014)

I would love to meet him at a Harley Davison/Ducati
showroom, while I was looking for a new motorcycle to
buy! That would mean we already have something in
common and something exciting to talk about.
Kimberly Mayberry 5:00pm January 11, 2014)
