Atlanta, Georgia – Present Day

It's late on the Friday before Christmas, and everyone is trying to get out of the office to avoid the predicted winter storm, but Dani Meadow's boss, CEO Nathaniel Winston, keeps her busy with last minute requests. Alas, the snow starts falling and they decide to leave before it gets much worse, so Nathaniel agrees to drive Dani to the MARTA train station. But when they arrive at his car, they discover a baby in a carrier—with a note that the little girl is Nathaniel's. He decides to take the child to his condo because they can't just leave a baby out in this weather and the authorities are busy with emergencies. Besides, the baby might really be his. Dani agrees to go with him because she has experience caring for babies and he has none. But as the storm continues to pile on the snow, they're soon stranded in his condo. Will close quarters unleash the attraction that has simmered below the surface?

There's a lot to love about couples stranded together during a storm, but add in a baby and a sexy billionaire, and readers are in for a treat. Dani has worked several years for Nathaniel as his dedicated assistant, all the while carrying a secret attraction for him. She knows that as long as she works for him that nothing can happen between them, but a woman can dream, can't she? When a baby is literally plopped down in front of them, neither can walk away from an innocent child. Now that they're alone, the sexy vibes make them acutely aware of each other. It's two days before Christmas and Nathaniel's condo has no decorations up, but Dani, with the help of a nearby store, soon make the place festive. She is also whipping up meals to rival a gourmet cook and he's seeing his assistant in a new light. But Nathaniel can't get involved with his employee, because this is the exact thing that bankrupted his father's company years ago. He can't follow down the same path.

Being stuck together means that Nathaniel and Dani get to know each other more than they had in all the years they'd known each other. And the more they learn, the more attracted they become to each other. The simmering desire soon bursts into full-fledged passion. They agree that once their ordeal is over, likely after Christmas, they'll go back to their former employer-employee relationship. But deep down, Dani knows this isn't going to happen, and she begins to think about walking away from her job. Meanwhile, the baby's mother needs to be found and paternity established.

A passionate and emotional tale that will tug at a reader's heart, BILLIONAIRE BOSS, HOLIDAY BABY will pull you into Dani and Nathaniel's romance.  If you love to read a book about babies, Christmas, and boss-employee romances, then you will love BILLIONAIRE BOSS, HOLIDAY BABY.
