Blog Barrage: The Boss and Her Billionaire by Michele de Winton - Promo + Giveaway

Hey guys! Welcome to today's blog barrage! My apologies for the late post, the time slipped away from me! The Boss and Her Billionaire is published by Entangled Publishing and is 60,000 words long. It is a contemporary romance novel with aspects of adventure, comedy and a holiday romance. The heat level is Sizzling (Highly explicit sex scenes/language) so do take note of that! Without further ado, let's begin!

The Boss and Her Billionaire by Michele de Winton

Cruise director Michaela Western has everything she wants—everything except a sex life. But there are no secrets on cruise ships. She risked her job once for a dalliance with the Captain, and won’t do it again for a few minutes of toe-curling pleasure. Until a devilishly handsome new staffer with a body made for sin tempts her to walk on the wild side...

Investment billionaire Dylan Johns always gets what he wants. He is used to giving orders—not taking them—until he’s forced to go on hiatus from his investment company. To bide his time and carry out an old dream, he takes a job on a cruise ship—and ends up taking orders from his gorgeous, but uptight, new boss. He is determined to loosen her up with a fun onboard romance, but their no-strings fling turns serious and Dylan is forced to confess his lies.

When the affair threatens to shatter Michaela’s own career dreams, she finds herself caught between the devil and the deep blue sea.

Time for a short excerpt!

“The bastard,” Felicity hissed. “Saying that a woman couldn’t do your job. As if he would do any better—he needs a staff of ten to make sure he doesn’t forget anything.”

Michaela smiled. Oh, it was good to smile.

“And the captain said it’s Dylan who’s been telling tall tales? The bloody cheek! I’ll have that man on toast.”

“We did sort of...” Michaela hesitated, but there was nothing to lose now. “Dylan and I... We...”

“You fox!” Felicity’s delight was immediate. “Was he scrumptious?”

“Oh, God!” Michaela’s heart dropped again at the thought of the gossip that was even now whirling around the ship. “Everyone’s been saying I seduced him. That I used my position to take advantage.”

“And I bet it was him that snared you, wasn’t it? The toad, trying to look squeaky clean.” Felicity switched from triumphant sex-gossip to compassionate friend in a heartbeat. “What’s he trying to prove, that he’s hot enough to score cruise director for starters and then have dessert of those dancing twins? Just wait until I get hold of him.”

Here are what some reviews have said about The Boss and Her Billionaire

I ate this book up, just could not turn my kindle off! The story cleverly eschews the romance novel formula by having the female lead in the position of power as the cruise director...and the hunky male lead is a dancer. I particularly enjoyed the dance scenes - the rehearsals, description of performances and interplay between dancers. Often i find the support characters are barely sketched in other romance novels but in this story they are fully fleshed, interesting and often hilarious. And the chemistry between the leads bursts off the page - they're hot! Move over Love Boat...this has made me want to go on a cruise!”- Megan Beard, Amazon review

"Better than the love boat. Yep, it's a big call but I think Michaela Western makes a better Cruise Director than Lauren Tewes. More smarts, more sass, and more self respect. Eventually anyway. I really liked it. I wasn't sure I was going to, because I didn't know how having the hero go from Investment banker to dancer was going to play out, but it works. Really works. I loved Dylan, and the sex scenes were hot. If this is a debut I'm looking forward to the next one." – Jess, Amazon review

I loved this book! It has a great premise, being set on a cruise ship in the middle of the pacific, and it breaks some of the usual boring 'rules' of romance by having a sexy dancer as the male lead, and his boss as the heroine. The chemistry sizzled, and I really got into the characters. It kept me up reading into the small hours, and I had work the next day, but it was worth it! Even the side characters worked for me. The banter between Michaela and her friend Felicity cracked me up - which is something I'm always looking for. For a debut, this is an especially good one. Looking forward for more from this writer.” - Trudi Jaye, Amazon review
