Royal, Texas – Present Day

Cyber expert Will Brady is staying temporarily in Royal while conducting an investigation into who is behind some blackmail threats that are targeting prominent citizens. He's staying in a house owned by a rancher, along with his baby daughter and a nanny. Will has noticed cowgirl Amberley Holbrook, and he's interested in her, but he's not sure he's ready to date after losing his wife months ago. Yet, the more he's around Amberley, the more attracted to her Will becomes. But he'll be returning to his home in Washington State when the job in Royal ends.

Amberley isn't interested in getting involved with a city slicker who'll only be around for a few weeks, but she has to admit Will is attractive. He's not only handsome, but his little girl is adorable. Amberley rarely dates after she had a bad experience with a guy when she was eighteen—where she also ended up pregnant, ultimately miscarrying and losing her ability to get pregnant again. Will obviously cares for children, so why would he want to get involved with someone who can't bear him more children? Yet, the sparks fly, leading to a fiery passion exploding between them.

Neither Will nor Amberley is looking for love in BILLIONAIRE'S BABY BOND, but it finds them. Will's interested, but he hasn't yet tried the dating pool again after becoming a widower. His baby girl, Faye, is his first priority, yet she remains a reminder of what he lost. Amberley had a bad break in the romance department at the age of eighteen and chose to start a new life by moving from her hometown and going to work on the Flying E Ranch, where she enjoys working with horses and participating in rodeos on weekends. Will intrigues Amberley, but at first, she wonders about his wife. Before too long, he tells her that he's a widower, and they start the first attempts at dating. I say attempts, because things don't go all that smoothly.

Meanwhile, Will is digging into the computer server at the Texas Cattleman's Club to see if he can identity who the dastardly blackmailer is. In BILLIONAIRE'S BABY BOND, there is a break in the case…but it then leads off in another direction. Readers who haven't read the series might not have too much trouble following along, as each tale can be read as a standalone. Looks like two more books to go, and then maybe we will learn who the blackmailer is.

A sizzling and emotional tale, BILLIONAIRE'S BABY BOND brings together a no-nonsense cowgirl and a man dedicated to his child. Life hasn't been easy for either Will or Amberley, and it's about time they find love. Will they have a future together? Find out in the engaging BILLIONAIRE'S BABY BOND.
