    I really enjoyed this book!

    This is such a fun story. Sloane and David are at the beginning of a great--and hot!--love affair. The lovers sizzle. This book is perfect for a cold winter's night. I can't wait to read more from Ann Montclair.

    David Grant is a wealthy billionaire in total command of this business
    ventures and his employees. When he sees what he wants, he usually gets
    it, and makes no excuses for his assertiveness; that is until he meets
    Sloane Porter, a woman determined to carve out a life for herself in
    Alaska, far away from her New York past. Billionaire's Bubble is a
    wonderful story of David and Sloane's romance. I loved the chemistry
    between this couple, and found myself rooting for them to overcome their
    preconceived notions about love, to embrace what was unfolding between
    them. Mrs. Montclair knows how to develop a story with wonderful layers
    of emotional depth and realism. Every woman will relate to Sloane's
    desire for the depths of a man's love and commitment before letting
    herself get lost in grand romantic gestures. Sloane set the tone from
    the first date that she would never concede to being a man's plaything,
    no matter how much money he possesses and such a declaration put David
    on notice. On the surface, some may think this novel is only a
    cat-and-mouse game but if you read it carefully you will see how Mrs.
    Montclair reminds readers that some people from perfect childhoods and
    great families may discard love too quickly, when fixated on a romantic
    ideal, in the same way some scarred people reject love swiftly, due to
    past heartaches. The key to love is openness, patience, and faith in
    yourself and accepting true soul mates are coupled by their actions and
    not their words. Angeline M. Bishop Author of North Star

    Beautiful love story

    I knew I'd love the book from the first page. The characters had amazing chemistry! I've never been to Fairbanks, Alaska, but the book made me long to visit it one day. I can't wait to read Ann Montclair's next book.

    Couldn't Put this Book Down!

    I loved this book. I read it all in one day. I couldn't put it down. The cat and mouse between David and Sloane kept me turning the pages. This story reminded me of an old school love story mixed with modern sensibility. I can't wait to read Ann's next book.

    It took me 30 pages before I wasn't able to put The Billionaire's Bauble down. I love the characters, the setting, and the sizzling sex. And so romantic. David and Sloane are meant to be. One great book!

    An Ace for Ann Montclair

    Sloanne is no bauble. She's a modern woman who is smart and knows what she wants-- and that is David. And what a catch he is. A dedicated workaholic, David's life is changed completely when Sloane comes into it. She adds an element of vulnerability and heart his life was missing. Will they lose each other through stubbornness or will they become "soul mates?"

    A REALLY fun read

    Ms. Montclair has created a book that is fun and engaging, with characters who are memorable. Sloane is stubborn and proud, and determined to live her life on her own terms. David is alpha male billionaire, a man accustomed to getting what he wants--or taking it if he has to. And with that stubborn pride, up against a man who takes what he wants, sparks are bound to fly. And they do!

    The Billionaire's Bauble is a fun read for anyone who enjoys contemporary romance with plenty of sparks, good sensuality, and characters you could genuinely fall for.

    Highly Recommended: Fun, sexy, great writing!

    I started this book and couldn't put it down. It's funny, sexy, and I loved the author's diction. The characters are tight: Sloane is young but smart, and David might be a billionaire, but he has to learn money can't buy love. Once he lets himself believe in "forever" and "soul mates," he gets what he wants, and so does the reader. Wow! I can't wait to read more from Ann Montclair.
