Scene set – remember Derek’s drinking buddies don’t know who he actually is. They assume is just “one of the guys.” (A small bit of editing to make it fit.)

“Bad day at work?” asked Kevin as he settled on a chair to Derek's right.
Derek collapsed on his chair. “Stinking day. Think I’ll get rich, buy the company and fire my boss. He’s such an ass.” If only I could fire myself.
Steve swallowed his beer and asked, “Hey, could you get rich enough to fire my boss?”
“I’ll get rich enough to fire everybody’s boss. Then we can all be boss,” said Derek.
“And fire ourselves.” Linc raised his bottle.

Two O’clock with the Billionaire is Daryl Devoré’s latest hot romance. A contemporary romance sweetened with a bit of vanilla sexcapades.
Where Derek Davenport is concerned, women only had one thing in mind: trap him into a marriage. The perfect way out? Hire a courtesan. While partying with his buddies he places an online ad that reads – Woman Wanted.
Unemployed and nearing financial desperation, Arianne is forced to step out of her comfort zone and answers an ad that reads Woman Wanted. With minimal hours and excellent pay, she accepts the position of courtesan to a handsome billionaire.
Their sexual antics cause emotions neither is willing to admit it. Will Arianne and Derek drive each other crazy…or will they fall in love first?
Note: This book was previously published by New Dawning Bookfair under the title A Kept Woman.

  1. That sounds like an idea. But if they fire themselves, can they qualify for unemployment insurance?

  2. That was a fun bit of dialogue, with the added spice that we know he could fire everyone's boss probably! Great snippet...

  3. He does a lot of lying, doesn't he?

  4. Be careful when you want to hear what others say about you (or those like you) behind your back. The truth can hurt!

  5. LOL at this conversation. Don't we all wish we could be the boss?
