A Steamy Billionaire Romance Series Former Ford model Grace Delacourt struts down a runway as much for charity as she does for a distraction from the terrible turn her billionaire boyfriend's business has taken. Her stroll down the catwalk resurrects a career she once walked away from. Introduced to Vogue for Veterans, a nonprofit managed by Garrett Bunting, a lawyer-turned-promoter, Grace becomes the next internet sensation. Her face graces magazine covers left and right, and her name is uttered from the lips of greats in the fashion industry. Just as it looks as if the foundation of Tony's empire is beginning to crumble, Grace inherits a fortune. Her biggest problem is one many would envy. What is she to do with all that money? Hot-blooded Greek god/billionaire Tony Petrides struggles to surf the choppy waves of a shaken business reputation while his beautiful fiancee enjoys a career that has rocketed her to being an international sensation, the stuff of every tweet and trending bar. Grace inherits a multimillion-dollar property in Savannah, Georgia, from a person who might have been Tony's sworn enemy at one time. Nevertheless, he takes it in stride, delighting in showing the sexy Grace the steamier side of the gothic South. Just when Tony thinks he's come through the storms and reached smoother sailing, that he'll end up with the money and the girl, filthy pictures of his beloved Grace litter the media. Tony's business recovers, but will the torrid, sensual passion and true love he shares with Grace be able to weather this latest storm?

A dark November afternoon-wet, and windy, and wild. The New York streets were at their worst-sloppy, slippery, and sodden; the sky lowering over those murky streets one uniform pall of inky gloom. A bad, desolate, blood-chilling November afternoon. And yet Mrs. Walraven's ball was to come off to-night, and it was rather hard upon Mrs. Walraven that the elements should make a dead set at her after this fashion. The ball was to be one of the most brilliant affairs of the season, and all Fifth Avenue was to be there in its glory. Fifth Avenue was above caring for anything so commonplace as the weather, of course; but still it would have been pleasanter, and only a handsome thing in the clerk of the weather, considering Mrs. Walraven had not given a ball for twenty years before, to have burnished up the sun, and brushed away the clouds, and shut up that icy army of winter winds, and turned out as neat an article of weather as it is possible in the nature of November to turn out.
