Self-made billionaire Nathan Trainor feels restless and disillusioned. His company may be thriving, but he can’t find a woman who sees him for more than his wealth. With his love life in the red, he meets two other billionaire bachelors at the ultra-exclusive Bellwether Club. The three of them make a wager of the heart: they must find women who love them for who they are, not their money.

Savvy office temp Chloe Russell is trying to scrape together the money she needs to support her grandmother. So when a flu epidemic strikes Trainor Electronics and she’s promoted to Nathan Trainor’s assistant, she jumps at the lucrative opportunity. But then Nathan himself falls ill, and he and Chloe must work from his penthouse while he recuperates. Before long, it’s clear there’s genuine heat between them, and it’s more than just a fever spike. Will Nathan win Chloe’s heart—and the bet? Or will their differences destroy any chance for love?

  1. I enjoy cont romance, women’s fiction, historical romance, occasionally a mystery, and sometimes a memoir or non fiction story…..
    What a lovely gift from your husband. He must be very supportive. You mention a cruise on your bucket list. Do you ever add cruises into your stories? Maybe a character wishes to or has cruised through the Panama Canal?

    1. Lisoo, I haven’t included a cruise in my stories so far but that doesn’t mean it won’t happen in the future. That’s half the fun of writing…and reading, isn’t it? The characters can do things that you wish you could do. Even little things, like thinking of a good comeback right on the spot. I can never do that in real life. 🙂 Even though I haven’t cruised through the Panama Canal yet, I’ve taken a few other cruises that I enjoyed very much: Alaska, the Douro River in Portugal, and a Caribbean cruise. Such fun!

  2. “I can type and walk on my treadmill at the same time. Is that a skill?” – YES. I have to hold on tight when I walk on a treadmill – I cannot imagine typing while walking! Color me impressed.

    I love anything that ends with a HEA, but I prefer contemporary romance to other genres.


  3. I love Nancy’s books! I’ve especially been enjoying her billionaires and am eagerly anticipating Gavin’s story in the upcoming The VIP Doubles Down.
    I have friends who have done the Panama Canal cruise and loved it. I’ve been on two: a four-day cruise to the Bahamas in the midst of storms and 10-feet seas (yeah, that was fun) and a perfect 7-day Caribbean cruise that stopped in Mexico, Jamaica, and Grand Cayman. It was wonderful!
