Today is a very special day. It’s release day for the first book in our Billionaire Bachelor Cove clean romance series! You can pick up your copy and start the romantic adventure today by clicking here.
“Her Beast of a Billionaire Boss,” by Lucy McConnell, starts out the series with a bang. She introduces you to the concept behind a billionaire neighborhood where helicopter pads come standard in the back yard, there’s a landing strip for private planes, and a security team made up of black ops specialists patrol the perimeter.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
When Bella Creer’s father has a heart attack and is unable to finish his contract for Adam Moreau, a ruthless lawyer based in Seattle, she steps in to take his place and save The Cove Phase II.
Adam, a billionaire who lives in a secluded castle on a cliff, is gruff, demanding, brilliant, and injured. An acid attack left its mark on Adam’s face but it’s his heart’s wounds that Bella sees clearly.
As she takes on the management of a multi-billion-dollar project, Bella’s confidence in herself strengthens and her attraction to Adam grows. But Adam didn’t become the best lawyer in the state by making friends and the wolves circle, ready to attack him at his weakest. Bella will have to be stronger than she’s ever been just to survive her day in court. And, she’ll need to realize that her true power lies in her ability to love beyond measure before it’s too late for Adam and The Cove.
A RESEARCH TRIP
To prepare to write in the Billionaire Bachelor Cove series, the authors met up in Seattle, WA, for a research trip. They visited all the tourist sites, including the Space Needle, Pike’s Place Market, and the Gum Wall.
They also ate at local restaurants, toured upscale neighborhoods, dealt with parking issues, hiked through a state park, and pretty much had a blast.
“What I loved most about Seattle,” said Author Lucy McConnell, “was the friendly atmosphere. It was busy and yet relaxed.”
Once back at their desks, the authors got to work creating characters that are so real they jump off the page. Check out this excerpt from “Her Beast of a Billionaire Boss.”
The car stopped in front of King County Courthouse. The aged gray building was shaped like a letter H, with two columns of justice connected by a tunnel of office space. There were decorations on the exterior to recommend it as an architectural beauty.
Impatient, Adam threw open the door before his driver had a chance to open it for him and marched towards the entry. He was single-minded in his movements and didn’t notice the woman in the yellow dress until their hands touched on the door.
“Oh!” she exclaimed, a smile blossoming on her face.
Feeling a jolt up his arm, Adam gave her his full attention. Her brown hair was pulled back in a style reminiscent of the 1940s with a few thick, loose curls bouncing to her chin and framing her enchanting, heart-shaped face. She had large, doe-like brown eyes that dropped demurely as his cheeks colored.
He never blushed. The sensation was enough to knock him off his course. She smelled of lilacs and fresh rain.
“I’m so sorry. You go first,” she said. Her voice was strong and yet a caress that drew him near. He had the strangest feeling that he’d like to slay a dragon.
He thrust the door open and motioned for her to enter. “I insist.”
“Thank you.” Her cheeks dusted pink, and for the first time in his life, Adam was quite out of his mind over a woman. He couldn’t remember where he was going or why it was important.
“You look lovely,” he said, not even sure the words made it out of his mouth. He didn’t throw out compliments to strangers. Heck, he didn’t compliment anyone.
Her smile deepened. “Thank you. I’m meeting my fiancé upstairs. We’re getting married today.” She nodded once, her smile lighting up the entire lobby and cracking through the plaster he’d applied to his heart long ago, and then she was off to the elevators and he was left feeling as though he’d missed the opportunity of a lifetime.

Dear Gelato Readers,
Last year was our best year yet. We had the privilege of working with some of the most talented authors in clean romance, start the MyHeartChannel romance series and the Sports Moms & Romance series and the Country Brides & Cowboy Boots series. In addition, we continued several series from the year before—all with great success. And we have YOU to thank for that.
Thank you for reading!
Thank you for reviewing our books!
Thank you for sharing our books with your friends and family!
Thank you for all the emails and messages full of support!
You are the reason we write, edit, proofread, design, publish, and pretty much breathe books.
Which is why we’re so excited to give you a sneak peek at what’s coming up in 2019.
Our biggest news is our new series: Billionaire Bachelor Cove.
With heavy iron gates, two security stations, valet parking, and a groundskeeper's cottage, The Cove has everything a billionaire could ask for in a home.
Dubbed Billionaire Bachelor Cove because of the resident's single status and income portfolios, The Cove is the perfect place to hide away from the world. But, as the residents soon find out, no one can hide from love.
The Billionaire Bachelor Cove series has been in planning for months. The authors gathered in Seattle, WA, where the books are based, for an in-depth research/planning trip that included scouring the city for restaurants, touring popular sites, and sampling local delicacies.
The research has paid off as our authors have been writing. You’ll see characters pop up in several books. Each book can be read as a stand-alone novel but together, they’re a full look at the neighborhood full of eligible billionaires and the insane lifestyles they lead.
We are always looking to bring you fresh writing talent and have brought in several new authors for the coming year. Their abilities in story telling are out-of-this-world. We’ll have more information about each of them as their books are released.
