Contemporary Series Romance
Chicago, Illinois – Present Day
Socialite Shay Neal isn't a spoiled rich girl who sits on her hands. Instead, she is helping less fortunate women achieve their dreams, and one night, Shay helps out one of these women by standing in for them as a server at a swanky party. Shay is in disguise because if her brother finds out what she's doing, he'll claim she is embarrassing the family. It is in this disguise that billionaire Gideon Knight sees Shay, and he instantly wants her. She tries to dissuade him, and might have been successful, but a sudden blackout leaves them alone in a room. Which soon leads to them having sex. The next morning, the electricity is back on and Shay is nowhere to be seen, much to Gideon's dismay. He shrugs it off, because he can't let this distract him from his goal of taking down his rival, Trevor Neal. Yes, Trevor is Shay's brother…
Of course, in Gideon's study of ways to strike at Trevor's vulnerability, he zeroes in on Shay…and starts pursuing her. There is something familiar about her, but it takes several times of their being together before he realizes that she is the hot woman he made love to on that night of the blackout. In the meantime, Gideon blackmails Shay with the information that she's been keeping from her brother, that she has created a business to help less advantaged women. Shay knows that if Trevor finds out about her venture, he'll step in and cut off the supply of money she's using to invest in it. Of course, maybe another reason she's willing to comply with Gideon's pressure is that she's attracted to him. She can't forget their hot night together.
Gideon's ties to Trevor run deep. They were schoolmates. Trevor is now engaged to Gideon's former fiancée. Yes, revenge is a big motive for both men in BLACK TIE BILLIONAIRE. Their rivalry has spanned years and now both think they have the other cornered. Who will win this “contest?” Will Shay be the innocent victim who loses everything?
