Billionaire Evan Michaels spent a month in Dare Valley as pay-off for the bet he lost in a poker game. Part of the wager had been that he drop his billionaire ways and remain celibate for his month there. Using a different last name Evan rented a room in Marjorie's Victorian home. But he never counted on his feelings for her when he presented himself as a painter living on a budget. She even helped him out by hiring him to paint her new bakery, not aware that he was actually a wealthy inventor. To remain true to the wager, Evan had been unable to tell her the truth and although he still regrets lying to her, he knew he couldn't confess until his time in Dare Valley was over. Now that his month there is past and they are both in Paris, he will have that opportunity. But, will discovering that he has been hiding secrets all along destroy any chance of a future between them?
USA Today bestselling author Ava Miles follows up THE BILLIONAIRE'S GAMBLE with the second installment of her DARE VALLEY MEETS PARIS mini-series entitled THE BILLIONAIRE'S SECRET. Evan and Marjorie grew quite close during his stay in Dare Valley, but now the month is up and he is back in Paris. Marjorie has arrived in Paris to take some lessons from a famous chef, but as she spends each spare moment she can with Evan, he worries about how she will react when she discovers the truth about him. Their time together seems magical, but is that all about to come to an end? As if this problem is not bad enough, Marjorie comes from a wealthy family who rejected her, leaving her distrustful of those with money and the affluent lifestyle.
Ms. Miles' stories have become some of my favorites. I have especially enjoyed this heartwarming mini-series and can't wait to see where it goes from here. Evan and Marjorie seem like they could be so good together. There is plenty of chemistry between them, but will they be able to overcome the issues that might tear them apart?
Containing four installments in this mini-series, there are still two more to go after this one, but none of them are meant to be read as standalones. THE BILLIONAIRE'S SECRET ends with another cliffhanger that will leave you anxious to read the next one, THE BILLIONAIRE'S COURTSHIP, which is due to release on August 19, 2015, followed by the final installment, THE BILLIONAIRE'S RETURN, which will be published on August 26, 2015. Do not miss any part of this scrumptious mini-series!
