Book Hooks is a weekly meme hosted by Marketing for Romance Writers as part of the MFRW Authors Blog. It's a chance each week for you the reader to discover current WIP or previously published book by possibly new to you authors.
Today, I am showcasing a snippet from soon my to be released new book and the cover that was just revealed yesterday - Love a Billionaire Collection.
Yes it is a collection of 3 of my hottest billionaire romances. So that's why I didn't change stories when I got back from my summer break - I was getting ready for this release.
Scene Set - Mark and Byn met - by chance - at the airport. He offered to fly her home in his private jet.
The pilot's voice interrupted our conversation, "Mr. Marian, we are taxiing to the runway. Third in line. Please, prepare for take-off."
Verona entered the main cabin. "Sir, should I do the pre-flight speech?"
"Yes, please do." He stood and walked passed the flight attendant.
Much to her disapproval, she shifted to face me. "I request your full attention as I demonstrate the safety features of this aircraft."
Mark stood a short distance behind her and as she spoke he lip-synced what she was saying and mimicked her movements.
"When the seat belt sign illuminates, you must fasten your seat belt." She held up an example of a seat belt. "Insert the metal fittings one into the other, and tighten by pulling on the loose end of the strap. To release your seat belt, lift the upper portion of the buckle. We suggest that you keep your seat belt fastened throughout the flight, as we may experience turbulence."
I chewed on my bottom lip trying not to laugh. The delight on Mark's face was amazing as he pretended to show one half of the seatbelt and then the other and then in an exaggerated move, he clicked them together and proudly showed off his successful task. Then he pulled up the imaginary clasp. With an expression of shock and delight, he showed how the seat belt had opened.
His interpretation of the possible turbulence could have been a modern dance performance at the Lincoln Center in New York.
Verona had to have known what he was doing behind her, but she pressed on in her speech, indicating the use of the life vest, showing where the emergency exits were, discussing the use of the air masks and whatever else the spiel entails. I'd stopped listening. The performance behind her was much more entertaining.
When she finished, I smiled and nodded. She turned on her heel and placed her hands on her hips. "Mr. Marian, you are such a scoundrel. Please take your seat and secure your seatbelt."
With a grin firmly planted on his lips, Mark settled next to me and showed me where the seatbelts were snugged into the seat.
"You know," I said as I clicked my belt shut. "If you're trying to impress me, it's working."
"I'm not. But it is bonus marks if you are impressed."
If you love hot, billionaire romances, then Daryl Devoré’s collection is a must read. Three of her hottest billionaire romances bundled into one smouldering collection.
Desires - When secrets conflict with dreams, love explodes.
After a mistake by a surgeon’s scalpel shattered Fuchsia Quinn's dance career, she picked up the pieces of her life and moved forward.

Two O’clock with the Billionaire – Sometimes, a woman has to do what a woman has to do.
Where Derek Davenport is concerned, women only had one thing in mind: trap him into a marriage.
Unemployed and nearing financial desperation, Arianne is forced to step out of her comfort zone. 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. Will Arianne and Derek drive each other crazy…or will they fall in love first?
Two Truths and Lie - The legend of Robin Hood and Maid Marian with a twenty-first-century twist.
As if multiple planes crashes, a car accident, and a concussion isn’t enough, carefree Byn and straight-laced billionaire, Mark clash over Byn's need for independence and Mark's struggle with guilt pushing him in the opposite direction of love.
