By Georgia Le Carre
12/6/13-1/31/14

Title: The Billionaire Banker
Series: The Billionaire Banker, #1
Author: Georgia Le Carre


When Lana Bloom learns the devastating news that her mother is dying, she is faced with a terrible dilemma. The one thing that can save her is the one thing she does not have. For young and innocent Lana, the unthinkable becomes her only choice. But when she walks through the door of that exclusive restaurant she has no idea of the seismic shift her life is about to take, for the highest bidder will not be the rich man she has accompanied. 

Fate drops her at the feet of the deeply mysterious and dazzlingly gorgeous American banker, Blake Law Barrington. Throbbing with raw masculinity and arrogance, this is a man who owns all that he pursues. And now he wants her. Lana cannot deny she is both intrigued and intoxicated by the world Blake inhabits and the smouldering passion he stirs in her body, but she is also fearful for this man is addictive, and right now she is very vulnerable. She knows she should focus only on the arrangement, but how can she…when he has opened a door that cannot be closed?

♣Excerpt♣
Lana closes her eyes. She has drunk too much champagne. The whole situation has become farcical and impossible for her to deal with in her present condition. She feels the sting of defeat in her bones. ‘What do you want from me?’ He leaves the door and walks towards her. Again that sensation that he is predatory animal. ‘Well for a start…’

 He reaches her and suddenly jerks her towards him. She falls forward and is pitched against his hard body. Shocked she is filled with the scent that Rupert called old money and establishment. Difficult to define, but it reminds her of rosemary, not because of its smell, but because it is so clear and distinct. Nothing wishy-washy about it. 

 Everything takes on an unreal appearance. The fabulously wealthy interior. The man outside that door that wants to rape her for money. The frighteningly remote man in front of her that brings into her body sensations she has never experienced before. A pulse at the base of his throat is throbbing. She watches it curiously. She has never seen it in a man before. And then an arm comes around her, a fistful of hair close to her nape is grasped and tugged so her face is tilted up towards him. ‘This,’ he says and his mouth swoops down to possess hers. His breath smells like brandy or whiskey. Wicked, anyway.




Georgia Le Carre lives in England, in an old 19th century romantic cottage surrounded by a magical garden filled with fruit and walnut trees. When she is not feeding words into her laptop, she is either curled up in bed with a box of chocolates and a good read, or lost in a long walk in the woods. Especially on moonlit nights. And often with the man of her dreams.




Georgia will be awarding a rare, hand painted, Iranian perfume bottle carved from camel bone and depicting Persian lovers from Nys Bloom's collection to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour; a 1oz silver American Eagle coin, 2013, from the Barrington family vault to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour; an Amazon gift card worth $30.00 to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour and an author signed, print copy of the Billionaire Banker to a randomly drawn commenter during the tour.
