Gambling with the Billionaire
Billionaire Ryan O’Connor learned the hard way that letting emotion prevail over reason can be devastating. So he refuses to let something as frivolous as nostalgia keep him from dismantling the restaurant in his hometown. It’s just business, after all. Or it was just business…until he met the restaurant’s quirky and annoyingly adorable manager. Suddenly keeping emotion out of his business dealings is more complicated than he ever could’ve imagined.
Katherine Williams’s family was left destitute when their home was burned to the ground by Yankee soldiers, so the ready solution presented by the prominent Mr. Josiah Richardson seems almost too good to believe. He’ll provide a home, work for her pa, and a new beginning for her family…if only Katherine will accept his proposal. A marriage of convenience is the last thing she wants, but there doesn’t seem to be a better option for her family or herself. Setting aside her dreams of love, Katherine agrees to the arrangement.
