Billionaires, army officers, aloof tycoons... These rich and ruthless bosses are used to being in charge--and using their wealth to get what they want. But once they fall for an employee, the heroes of these stories will have to learn that while money can buy pleasure, only love can give them what they really need...
Bundle includes: Mistress: Hired for the Billionaire's Pleasure by India Grey, The Billionaire Boss's Innocent Bride by Lindsay Armstrong, Her Ruthless Italian Boss by Christina Hollis and Mediterranean Boss, Convenient Mistress by Kathryn Ross.
A self-confessed romance junkie, India Grey was just thirteen years old when she first sent away for the Mills & Boon Writers' Guidelines. She can still recall the thrill of getting the large brown envelope with its distinctive logo through the letterbox, and subsequently whiled away many a dull school-day staring out the window and dreaming of the perfect hero. She kept these guidelines with her for the next ten years, tucking them carefully inside the cover of each new diary in January, and beginning every list of New Year's resolutions with the words Start Novel. In the meantime she also gained a degree in English literature and language from Manchester University, and in a stroke of genius on the part of the Gods of romance, met her gorgeous future husband on the very last night of their three years there. The last fifteen years have been spent blissfully buried in domesticity, and heaps of pink washing generated by three small daughters, but she has never really stopped daydreaming about romance. She's just profoundly grateful to have finally got an excuse to do it legitimately!
Lindsay ArmstrongNotify me of new titles added by this author
They say you can take someone who was born in Africa out of the bush but you can't take the bush out of someone born there....Lindsay Armstrong was born in South Africa. She grew up with three ambitions: to become a writer, to travel the world, and to be a game ranger.She didn't achieve the last one, but her fascination for wildlife and that special something about Africa and its big game still remains with her. When she went to work it was in travel, at an agency and an airline, and this started her on the road to seeing the world.She met her New Zealand-born husband, who had been working in West Africa, when he was on his way home through Johannesburg. He did go home but in a matter of weeks he was back in South Africa, and six months later they were married. Three of their five children were born in South Africa. Then one in London and one in Australia, after they made the decision to emigrate from South Africa.It wasn't until her youngest child started school that Lindsay sat down at the kitchen table determined to tackle her other ambition--to stop dreaming about writing and do it! She hasn't stopped since.She's not happy unless she has a book under way, and she's discovered she can write through just about anything.She and her husband have moved around a lot. They've trained racehorses, farmed, and lived on their boat for six months while they sailed it from the Gold Coast to the Torres Strait and back, an epic voyage! They currently live in Queensland, overlooking the water; they sold their farm, and they're looking around for another boat.Lindsay and her husband love to travel and have been back to Africa twice in the past few years. The highlight of one of their trips was a visit to the Serengeti, in Tanzania, where Lindsay did the one thing she swore she would never do: take a ride in a hot-air balloon. She was a nervous wreck as the balloon tottered upright, but will remember it as a unique experience to see the game spreading out on the Serengeti plain beneath her as the sun rose.Despite this passion for wildlife and Africa, Lindsay considers Australia her home now and loves the country. She traveled to Sydney to witness the closing weekend of the Olympic Games in September 2000; it made her proud to be an Aussie!
Christina HollisNotify me of new titles added by this author
Christina Hollis was born a few miles from Georgian Bath in England. She has been writing from the moment she picked up a pencil and her first book was a few sentences about three puppies that lived in a basket. It was written at the age of three!
She left school at sixteen. Working as a 'gopher' in the marketing department of a financial institution was an experience that opened her eyes to life outside of sleepy Somerset. She met her husband on a blind date and love at first sight led to marriage within months. When a play she wrote in her spare time was short-listed for a national award, her husband suggested she try writing full-time.
Over the next few years, Christina wrote half a dozen full-length novels, did a lot of non-fiction work for magazines and had two lovely children. In the year 2000, she joined a college course in creative writing to update her skills. It was tutored by the prize-winning Welsh poet Paul Groves, who suggested she try writing short stories. Various examples of these went on to be broadcast by the BBC and achieved success in several national competitions and magazines.
Christina's first modern romance, The Italian Billionaire's Virgin, began life as a two-thousand-word holiday assignment for her writing course. Urged to send it to Mills and Boon by her fellow students, her thrill at being invited to send in a completed manuscript was only topped by the experience of receiving THE letter--acceptance! It arrived on her young son's birthday, making it a double celebration the family will never forget.
Christina's hobbies include cooking and gardening and she always has a book in hand. Romances are a favourite, as they are in such contrast with raising a family in a crumbling old cottage. Married to the most romantic man in the world, Christina enjoys every aspect of the subject. Romance can be as simple as a cup of tea in bed, but grand gestures such as a restaurant dinner add spice to the mix.
Christina thinks writing must be the best job in the world. There really is nothing like seeing the pictures in her head become words on a page. The chance to explore relationships and the way people overcome the problems that life throws at them means that there is always some new avenue to investigate.
Kathryn RossNotify me of new titles added by this author
Kathryn was born in Africa, where her parents happened to live at the time. Educated in Ireland and England, she is a professional beauty therapist, but writing is her first love.
As a child she wrote animal and adventure stories for her friends and younger sister. At 13 she was editor of her school magazine and wrote her first one-act play for entry into a Tidy Towns competition, and won. Happily 10 years later she was accepted by Harlequin Mills & Boon, who were the only publishers she had ever approached with her work.
Kathryn lives in Lancashire, is married, and has inherited two delightful stepsons. She has written over 20 novels now and is still as much in love with writing as ever and never plans to stop.
