Publication date: July 5th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
He’s gone from the battlefield to the boardroom; now this billionaire has to win his girl.
Hot tempered Grant Holbrook has just returned to the states and he’s already in trouble.
In jail and estranged from his adoptive parents, Grant thinks his luck is turning around when Kate, his birth father’s gorgeous assistant walks into the police station to bail him out.
As the newly discovered heir to a multi-billion dollar fortune, Grant is the talk of New Cardiff, his father’s exclusive New England hometown, and not everyone is happy that he’s there.
Deemed the most eligible bachelor in America, Grant has to run an international corporation and fend off the woman that want him.
But there is one woman who won’t throw herself at him—Kate.
How can he convince her that he needs her in his life not just for a night but for the rest of his life?
Sleeping with the boss’s heir is not in her job description.
Kate has sworn off men. After a string of bad relationships culminating in the absolute worst night of her life, Kate promised herself she was going to concentrate on her career and bury all of her bad decisions.
But when her billionaire boss asks her to find his long lost heir after a Holbrook family tragedy, Kate finds herself falling for the volatile Grant—but she cannot give in. She would lose her job and ruin her reputation if she were caught sleeping with her boss’s son.
Kate is the executive assistant of billionaire Walter Holbrook, and she prides herself in achieving the impossible. But when Grant starts pursuing her, he may be the one problem Kate won’t be able to solve.
As secrets from her past start to resurface, will it drive her into his arms or will she ultimately resist Grant Holbrook?
The Successor is book 1 in the Holbrook Cousins Saga, but can be read as a standalone novel. This 80,000 word steamy romance novel has no cliffhangers but a very happily ever after.
They crossed into Swiss airspace early the next morning. Kate prodded Grant awake.
"Look!" she said, then she smiled as she watched his expression as he gazed out of the window. Lake Geneva glistened below them, the surrounding mountains framing it like a painting, the city growing out from its banks.
"Wow!" Grant breathed. "It's the most beautiful place I've ever seen."
The plane landed, and as they taxied, Kate hurried to tidy herself up. The flight attendant took a wet washcloth and scrubbed Kate's face.
"You look rumpled. You don't want to make a bad impression."
She handed Kate her clothes that had been hung up to relax any wrinkles. Kate slipped into a sheer blouse tucked into a high-waisted pencil skirt and velvet black flats. She pinned her hair into a casual bun at the nape of her neck and freshened her makeup.
"Grant, come here," she said.
He obliged. Grant looked disheveled. Kate could already feel the sneers that were going to come their way.
Stefan had packed black slacks and a white shirt for Grant and a pair of leather shoes. When Grant was dressed, he looked like someone's security detail. Kate tried to fluff out his short-cropped hair but eventually gave up. The captain came out of the cockpit and watched as Kate and Wendy tried to stuff Grant's massive arms in one of the jackets Stefan had sent.
"Nothing you're going to be able to do about him," the captain said with a smirk. "That man looks like an American."
"And a damn fine specimen at that!" Kate said, giving Grant's firm backside a playful slap. He jumped, and she laughed. "Let's go give them something to gossip about." She gathered their things and made sure she had all the customs forms in order.
Grant was twisting his body, trying to loosen up after the flight, when Kate heard a loud rip. The captain guffawed.
"Leave that jacket here, son," he said. "Try not to break anything in that watch shop." He waved, still chuckling as they exited the plane.
