 This week's 8-10 sentences are from my Love A Billionaire Collection. This is the final snippet from this series. I will start a new book in the new year. The part after the "8" sentences is a bit long to get to the end of the scene.

 Scene set - Peyton accompanies Fuschia back to her apartment.

Fuchsia dug her key out of her purse. The cab drove away. They stood on the sidewalk in silence. Oh, what the hell. Show him how a good part of the world lives. Not in fancy condos. Give him a taste of reality and see how he likes it.

She led the way into the building, up the three flights of stairs, and down the hallway, which smelled of stale smoke and rank cooking odours.

The rest

She unlocked her door and entered. Oh good. I didn't leave the place in too much of a total disaster. Crap. Is that my bra lying on the chair? She crossed the room and dropped her purse on the pink embarrassment.

Peyton stood just inside the room. "The doctor said you need to eat and sleep. And I am going to see that you do that."

Anger shot through her core. She turned to face him. "I don't need a babysitter. I'm a grown woman. I've taken care of myself this long."

"Agreed. But this is different. I feel responsible for pushing you over the edge. I want you to come home with me where I can see that you get the care you need to get better."

"No." She shook her head. "I'm perfectly capable of looking after myself."

"Wrong answer. Pack your things." His brow was dark. His mouth set in a tight line. "You are coming home with me."

Oh, so the wrong thing to say. Fuchsia straightened her shoulders and glared at him. "No, I'm not, and you can't make me."

"Uh. Yes. I can."

She crossed her arms and rested her weight on one hip. "Uh. No. You. Can't."

He exhaled an exasperated breath. "Try me."

"What're you gonna do? Kidnap me?"

"If I have to." He stepped one step closer.


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.

Peyton Lang, having run from an impoverished neighbourhood, lives the lifestyle of a successful billionaire.

Frustrated that his current multi-million-dollar project is stalled, Peyton drops in to LEATHER-ICIOUS for a quick drink and late night entertainment. What he saw was a beautiful redhead. What he found was he wanted her.

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. When an art forger, an art thief and a ninety-year-old woman get involved the chance for true love for Byn and Mark fades.

All is lost until a children's game is their only hope.

  1. Two alphas butting heads. That's these two.

  2. Nothing like a clash of strong wills! Give in, girl!

  3. They are both so headstrong! I like it!

    1. I'm a little headstrong so it is probably just my personality coming through.

  4. He's a bit full of himself. I admire his protective instincts but he's not going about it too well, is he? Enjoyed the excerpt. I love your heroine!

  5. Talk about butting heads! Great scene to show their actual characters. But I think I'd put my money on Peyton to take this round. :)

  6. Shouldn't he know by now he can't make her do anything if she doesn't want to??

  7. Haha! That was a great scene! Good book!
