 Booth Harrison has made a habit of getting what he wants, be it a new addition to the Harrison media empire, or a better relationship with his half-brother. But meeting his brother’s new sister-in-law, Camryn McBride, poses a new challenge. The savvy CFO of McBride Media has a brain he wants to pick…and a body he needs to claim. Camyrn has spent the past few years helping to rebuild her family’s magazine company, focusing on that rather than her disastrous personal life. But when Booth Harrison invites her to be the keynote speaker at a sales conference in Hawaii, she’s tempted to combine business with pleasure. But meeting the billionaire’s demands won’t be easy, because someone doesn’t want a merger between them to happen.


Taking a Chance on Love

So I’m not sure how I got this lucky but there’s really not a better day to blog about romance than ON the big day. Right now, it feels like the entire universe is in love with love (well, love and downhill skiing.)

And I’d like to think that when we focus on love, we focus on the very best parts of ourselves. Our most compassionate selves. Our least selfish selves. And our most engaged-in-life selves.

That was one of the things I wanted to explore in my latest release, THE BILLIONAIRE’S DEMANDS. Camryn McBride has been living a sort of half-life. She’s got a great job and a wonderful relationship with her sisters, but she’s allowed past hurts to close her off to the possibility of something wonderful in a relationship. She’s deluded herself into thinking that working to rebuild her family magazine empire with her sisters, Keira and Mayson, is enough. But love has other plans…

Enter Booth Harrison, sexy Manhattan businessman. His half brother is married to Camryn’s sister and Booth has had his eye on the gorgeous CFO for the better part of a year. When the opportunity comes to make his move, Booth doesn’t hesitate, but Camryn’s not so sure the relationship won’t be messy and complicated.

Of course, I don’t know about you, but I love a man who’s up to the task of convincing the woman he’s grown to love that she’s wrong to ignore what’s between them.

He reached for her hand yet again, unable to hold that desperate urge to touch her at bay. “You. I’m looking at you. You unsettle me. Intrigue me. And you make me want, Camryn.” He dragged her hand to his mouth, turning it over as he pressed his lips to her palm.
With a quick flick of his tongue, he ran the tip over the lines of her palm, satisfied beyond measure when she visibly shivered. “I want you, Camryn.”
“This isn’t the place.”
“Then name it.” He exhaled over the small patch of wetness he’d left on the sensitive flesh of her hand and was rewarded with another shiver. “Name the place.”
She dragged her hand away, her gaze on her palm before she firmly re-tucked it in her lap. “I told you last night this isn’t a good idea.”
 “A sleepless night didn’t make you rethink that?” It was a calculated comment, but Booth knew it had paid off by the widening of her eyes and the light stammer that filled her words.
“Why do you think that?”
“Because I spent mine the exact same way.”

I don’t want to give anything away, but I can pretty much promise you things won’t stop there!

So what are you looking forward to most about the holiday? How do you plan to spend the day/weekend? And my thanks for sharing part of it with me!

Happy Reading!


Addison_Fox2_Color_High_Res-3001 Addison Fox can’t remember a time when words weren’t part of her life. An avid reader, her love of the written word started at the tender age of one with The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear (a poem she could recite by heart to any family member who would listen.) Dr. Seuss, C.S. Lewis, Judy Blume and a host of others quickly followed until she discovered THE CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR by Jean M. Auel while writing a paper at the library in the seventh grade. Although not a classic romance, Ayla and Jondalar’s love story moved her firmly into the romance section and she hasn’t looked back! Addison writes paranormal and contemporary romance for NAL, category-length romantic suspense for Harlequin Romantic Suspense and category-length contemporary romance for Entangled Indulgence. Addison lives in Dallas. She loves to get email from readers.
