Billionaire romance books you won’t want to put down
May 12th, 2018
As the saying goes: "No woman marries for money; they are all clever enough, before marrying a billionaire, to fall in love with him first."

So we have compiled a list full of irresistible super wealthy heroes who have more to offer than only their wallets.

I thought I’d hit the jackpot when I was upgraded to first class on my flight to London.

I thought I’d give him hell for one, long flight. I didn’t expect to like him. I didn’t expect to want him. But the biggest surprise? He wants me too. Only in a way I didn’t see coming.
If I accept his proposal, I leave myself open to falling for the one man I can’t manage... more
