From USA Today Bestselling Author Cerys du Lys ~

Falling in love wasn't part of Jessika's temporary job description. Nor, initially, was being asked by billionaire CEO Asher Landseer to become an egg donor and surrogate for his infertile wife. All Jessika wants to do is help, but is she setting herself up for heartbreak in the process?

(A Cerys du Lys contemporary romance novel)

Screwing up on her first day of a one-day job is the last thing Jessika Fevrier wanted to do. Worse yet, she's managed to infuriate Asher Landseer, the young, handsome, reclusive and eccentric billionaire CEO of Landseer Enterprises. His idea of work performance punishment is unorthodox to say the least, but Jessika finds herself intrigued by this singularly unaffected man nonetheless.

She was only supposed to clean Asher's office, but before she leaves for the day he has another job he'd like to offer her. Revealing that his wife is infertile, Asher asks her to consider becoming an egg donor for his family. He's always wanted children of his own, but the fates have plotted against him, it seems.

Asher's marriage is of necessity, rough and possibly loveless, but his desire for children is genuine and real. His absoluteness and certainty in himself and his surroundings, despite everything, captivates her. Jessika finds herself charmed by this dominant, enigmatic man who seems to know everything about business and nothing about love.

Behind the scenes, there's more than the fates plotting against him. Someone has it out for Landseer Enterprises, and they're going to do everything within their power to cause Asher's downfall. Between dealing with Asher's conditions and requirements, the cruel gaze of his spiteful wife, and corporate sabotage, Jessika finds herself lost in a world completely different from the one she's used to.

Can she rediscover herself and come to terms with her impossible feelings for a man she can't have? Or in her attempts to satisfy His Absolute Need will she inadvertently become the catalyst that leads to his (and her) ruin?

Dominant, sexy, and powerful. This tantalizing story of love, lust, intrigue and suspense will bind you, entwine you, and thrill you until the very end.

This book is intended for mature audiences.

(This scintillating contemporary romance novel of domination and submission is ~100,000 words in length, or ~370 pages)

Meet the Author

~If you like a story, I'd love if you rate and review it. It lets me know what you like best and helps me decide what to write next~

Cerys is a USA Today Bestselling Author. She has charted on numerous hot new release lists and best sellers lists internationally and with multiple books.

She lives in the Greater Boston area in a small town in New Hampshire. She spends her days writing, reading, learning, and working. And maybe sometimes she flirts with the mailman. Some of her most favorite activities involve understanding and learning about emotions and relationships.

She adores pondering sexuality and sensualness. Most of her writing delves into this in some way, exploring reactions and relationships between different people. While she enjoys writing erotica and erotic romance, her goal is to also keep a certain literary appeal to the writing instead of something purely pornographic. Every story she writes has a delightful plot along with the more devious and delicious scenes we all want to read.

She prefers romance settings, with the occasional monster or fairytale. Her secret kinks include reluctance, interesting paranormal creatures, romance(even with monsters), and fun. She loves writing about all of these things, though very strongly acknowledges that fantasies are fiction and nothing more.

    This is a very well written novel.  Du Lys¿ intricate descriptio

    This is a very well written novel.  Du Lys’ intricate descriptions really pop, allowing you to picture each and every aspect of the novel.  There were many aspects and levels to this novel.  The exciting and suspenseful twist near the end really had me.  It also wraps everything up nicely.  This is one of those novels that really makes you think.  It had me questioning a great deal of things throughout, about life and about living it.  As much as I enjoyed parts of the story the fact that he was married was always in the back of my mind.  It shouldn’t matter what his wife was doing behind his back, the fact remains that he’s still married.  

    The characters were all developed so individually that you can’t help but see how they come from different worlds.  You get to know them on varying levels and in many ways creating a unique cast that you really get to know.

    This was a unique read that I enjoyed, yet at the end I was left with the overwhelming question as to why it was ok that he was married, but not that she was.   

    Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Cerys du Lys pens "The Billionaire's Ultimatum" in a w

    Cerys du Lys pens "The Billionaire's Ultimatum" in a well written plot filled with emotions and sexual tension. The author's main male character was very dominant but he starts to loosen up towards the end and had great chemistry with his female counterpart. I totally enjoyed the story line but I must warn you that in the story line, the characters have an extra-marital affair which some might find offensive. A must read for all erotica fans.




    This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

    The Billionaire¿s Ultimatum:His Absolute Need is a sensuous slid

    The Billionaire’s Ultimatum:His Absolute Need is a sensuous slide into a world of carnal delights, lustful longing, and the primal dominance of love. Jessika may have gotten more than she bargained for when she took a job with Landseer Enterprises. The sexy and indomitable CEO, Asher Landseer, is a force to be reckoned with. He is unorthodox, blunt, and sex in a suit.

    When Asher asks her to have his baby, she is shocked and intrigued. Asher’s marriage is not one of love, but necessity. His wife is infertile and Asher long’s for children of his own, that is were he needs Jessika. He will compensate her handsomely if she agrees to become a surrogate for him and his wife.

    This story will take the reader on an erotic journey of forbidden love, sexual discovery, beautiful chaos, and passionate nights.
    What would you give up to be with the one person that completed you? Asher and Jessika have such a tangible connection, the very air vibrates with their desire and need. Throughout the emotional turbulence of her situation Jessika knows one thing for certain, she is in love with a married man. Can she fulfill her contract and keep her heart in one piece?

    The relationship between Jessika and Asher moves beyond the terms of the contract. Both of them feel it, both of them need it, and neither one of them can control it. Jessika knows it is wrong, but it is also completely right. When someone plots to take Landseer enterprises apart Asher knows that he has been betrayed and now the people he is closest to are in danger.

    Suspense, sex, dominance, submission, and a love that defies everything! From the first page until the last this story will arouse you, undeniably seduce you, control you, and conquer you!

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Fantastic read!

    This is the first series I have read by this author and I will definately be reading the rest of her books. I have seen some bad reveiws here and must believe that they have been written by people that haven't read the books. You will not regret your purchase!

    A married man having an affair, no matter what the situation, is totally unappealing.

    Horrible

    This book was all over the place. Stupid plot, not well planned. Storyline was rediculous at times and completely unbelievable. Don't waste your time.
