Book Tour Grand Finale for
Carrying the Greek Tycoon’s Baby
By Jennifer Faye

Launch – Note from the Author

Sometimes you have to leave what you’ve always known and set off on an adventure to truly learn what you’re capable of. And sometimes when the odds seem against you and you persevere…it works out better than you could have ever imagined.

This is what happens when Lea Romes finds out that she’s inherited a wedding island in the Mediterranean. Not even knowing that she had family in Greece, she is eager to find out more about her ancestors. But when a tall, sexy man crosses her path there’s a chance for an island romance…

EmpowerMoms – Review

“Fun, easy to read, romantic story. This story had great characters and I loved that the setting of the book was in Greece on a little island. . . . I really enjoyed reading it!”

Thoughts of a Blonde – Excerpt

Just then Lea noticed a seaplane preparing to take off over the calm blue sea. But it was the man in the dark suit standing on the wooden dock, with his back to her, that caught her attention. She took in his immense height and broad, muscled shoulders accentuated by his suit jacket—a very fine set of threads. It probably cost more than she made in a month. Definitely.

His dark hair was trimmed in a short neat cut just like in his online photos. Not a strand was out of place. She wondered if he liked his life to be just as neat and orderly. As she continued to stare, she imagined what it’d be like to comb her fingertips through his hair. Her fingers tingled with temptation. She tightened her hold on the steering wheel.

Jorie Loves A Story – Review

“What I loved most about how Ms Faye writes her stories is that she gives her characters obstacles they must learn to face together and to find solutions too which allows both parties to find equal ground. . . . I love reading her romances because her style of telling them is uplifting and full of second chances – where new beginnings can thrive and where people can re-write their own future . . . . I am dearly eager to see what becomes of this series – especially when we get to step inside the shoes of Popi and Stasia! I have a feeling there are many more surprises in store to be learnt and overall, I truly love where this series is set.”

Colorimetry – Excerpt

It was late afternoon by the time Lea had given Xander the full tour. He was the first potential investor who had stuck around this long. Lea’s hopes soared. He had many questions about the island and she did her best to answer them. She was proud of her little island. As she’d spoken of the various aspects of the island, Mr. Marinakos made notes on his digital tablet.

This is going to work. This is going to work.

She struggled not to grin. After all, nothing was final yet—

“Miss Romes, I’d like to make you an offer.”

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Inside the Mind of an Avid Reader – Review

“Carrying The Greek Tycoon’s Baby by Jennifer Faye is the first book in the Greek Island Brides Series. . . . This is a sweet and pleasant read. “

E-Romance News – Excerpt

He liked Lea. She was pleasant, and when she smiled, her whole face lit up. And it had been a long time since he’d taken time for a social life. He’d prided himself on being able to amass his fortune before the age of thirty-five. But it had come at a price—his work schedule meant he hardly had a normal life.

There was something about this island—something so relaxing. Or perhaps it was the company. Xander’s gaze met hers. “I hope that even though we couldn’t do business together we can still be friends.”

Surprise lit up her eyes, but in a blink it was gone. “Um…sure. No hard feelings.”

Wishful Endings – Review

“CARRYING THE GREEK TYCOON’S BABY is a sweet and light romance set on a Greek Island between a poor heiress who is just trying to keep the island as it has been and a wealthy businessman who wants to buy the island. Harlequin Romance fans will enjoy the humor and back-and-forth tension of this one!”

Stacking My Book Shelves! – Excerpt

Even though the sun had slipped below the horizon, leaving a pink hue in its wake, Xander wasn’t ready to end his time with Lea.

They strolled down to the beach. No one was around, and they enjoyed the surf and sand alone.

“I really should get back to work,” Lea said, but her voice lacked desire.

“I should, too. But why don’t we play hooky this evening?”

Andi’s Book Reviews – Review

“Infinity Island is definitely the kind of place that I would love to escape to. I love the idea of a place that is so magical that everyone who has ever been married there has stayed together forever. . . . It’s a quick read . . . makes for a fun escape and isn’t overly racy. I’ll be on the lookout for the next two books in the series.”

It’s All About the Romance – Excerpt

TWO PINK LINES…

Three separate results…

Diagnosis: Pregnant.

Every time Lea thought about it, which was quite often, she started to hyperventilate. This couldn’t be happening. Not now. Not when her life was in such an uproar.

But she’d had all of the early symptoms, from her missed cycle to tender breasts. As much as she wanted to live in the land of denial, she couldn’t. There was now a baby to take into consideration. And a man who didn’t have a clue he was about to become a father. Well, he would if he’d answer his phone.

Locks, Hooks and Books – Review

“I give Carrying the Greek Tycoon’s Baby a well deserved five plus stars. I can not wait to read book two from the Greek Island Brides series. I highly recommend this book! It is most definitely not one to be missed.”

Becky on Books – Excerpt

She tilted her chin upward to watch the helicopter descend to the helipad not far from her office. Whoever this was, they weren’t a guest.

Her body tensed as the long seconds dragged out. She never knew it could take so long for a chopper to land. But she knew that in reality not much time had passed at all. It was just her anxiety that seemed to have slowed the world down as she waited to see what new problem awaited her.

And then the door to the helicopter opened. And…

The breath of anticipation hitched in her throat. And…

Harlie’s Books – Review

“… Another winner from Ms. Faye and the Harlequin Romance line. . . . Ms. Faye has written a brilliant billionaire story that will tug on your emotions, have you believe in a true love romance with a bit of magic woven in. . . . Loved it. I really didn’t want the book to end. Lea and Xander were a perfect couple and I can’t wait to hear more about them in the other books.”

Reading On The Edge – Excerpt

She glanced at the clock on the stove. “If you don’t hurry, you’ll miss the ferry. It’s the only one today.”

“Is this the way it’s going to be?”

She turned her full attention to him. “How what is going to be?”

“You and me. How do I even know the baby is mine?”

“I’d like to think that no one would lie about such an important thing. But you obviously don’t trust me…

Hallie Reads – Review

“The romance proves fun as the drama unfolds around Lea and Xander. I enjoyed seeing the pair sorting through the challenges before them, and I think a reader in need of a quick, contemporary romance will, too.”

Teatime and Books – Excerpt

THINGS WOULD GET BETTER.

They had to.

Lea Romes refused to accept any other alternative.

She pushed her chair back from the desk with its insurmountable pile of paperwork. In this modern age of technology, she thought paperwork would be a thing of the past. But alas, it seemed as though dealing with written documents would be a constant while the digital correspondence and spreadsheets just added to the burden.

At least she got to work in paradise as a wedding planner…

What can I say?  Another winner from Ms. Faye and the Harlequin Romance line.  Why are you not reading this line?  Because it’s not hot enough?  Think the storyline will be too sweet for you?  Trust me, the romance is there.  The smexy times build up is there; it’s just behind closed doors and the story isn’t too sweet.  Ms. Faye has written a brilliant billionaire story that will tug on your emotions, have you believe in a true love romance with a bit of magic woven in.

I adored Lea from the beginning.  Finding out about her heritage the aftermath with her parents is relatable.  Not all people are happy with their roots and her mother was not happy.  The island brought up bad memories for her and I could understand that in some way.  But to withhold that from Lea and then subsequently “rule” her life afterward?  No.  Again, relatable.  Lea has a backbone and she uses it.  She is very uncertain of Xander in the beginning but slowly warms up to him.  Her friendship with Popi is fun and I can’t wait to see what is in store for her.

Xander is the typical billionaire.  Yes, he is Greek but Ms. Faye has written him to be a good guy, not your typical alpha jerk.  He really does care for Lea and the baby to come, he just doesn’t know how to achieve that true happiness.  He’s worked most of his life and really hasn’t thought about marriage and a family.  His backstory is interesting and I adored his relationship with his sister, Stasia.

I never felt like the story was rushed.  The romance moves at a leisurely pace and the setting for the story is great.  An island that guarantees that if you get married there, it will be forever?  Loved it.  I really didn’t want the book to end.  Lea and Xander were a perfect couple and I can’t wait to hear more about them in the other books.

Again, why are you NOT reading this line?  It’s fun, romantic, has the lush settings and heroes to swoon for in the end?  Tsk, tsk.  Plus, billionaires.  One of Harlie’s favorite heroes.

Happy Book Birthday to The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarros!!! @RebeccaYarros @entangledpub @inkslingerpr #contemporaryromance

 

The right words can save your life.

For fans of Nicholas Sparks and Jodi Picoult… A soldier falls in love with his battle buddy’s sister through their letters and returns home from Afghanistan with a secret that could destroy their fragile relationship. Don’t miss THE LAST LETTER by Rebecca Yarros! Grab your copy today!

 

About THE LAST LETTER:

Beckett,

If you’re reading this, well, you know the “last-letter” drill. You made it. I didn’t. Get off the guilt train, because I know if there were any chance you could have saved me, you would have.

I need one thing from you: Get out of the army and get to Telluride.

My little sister Ella’s raising the twins alone. She’s too independent and won’t accept help easily, but she has lost our grandmother, our parents, and now me. It’s too much for anyone to endure. It’s not fair.

And here’s the kicker: there’s something else you don’t know that’s tearing her family apart. She’s going to need help.

So if I’m gone, that means I can’t be there for Ella. I can’t help them through this. But you can. So I’m begging you, as my best friend, go take care of my sister, my family.

Please don’t make her go through it alone.

Ryan

“I cannot imagine a world without this story.” – Hypable

 

“A stunning, emotional romance.” – Jill Shalvis, NYT Bestselling Author

 

 

Excerpt:

“Ella.” It was a plea to speak, to not speak. Hell, I didn’t know anymore.

“You don’t see me like that. I totally get it.” She reached for the TV remote.

“How exactly do I see you? Please, enlighten me.” I leaned forward, stealing the remote. She’d opened this box and had better well dish it.

She huffed in annoyance. “You see me as a mom. As Colt and Maisie’s mom. And of course you do, because that’s what I am. A mom with two kids.”

“Well, yeah,” I said. Her motherhood—that selfless devotion she had to her kids—was one of her most attractive attributes.

She rolled her eyes with a little sigh, and the metaphorical light bulb went off in my head.

“You don’t think I want you.”

She shot me a look that confirmed my guess and blushed the same crimson of her couch. “You know, you’re right. It’s late.” She faked a yawn. “Suuuuuuper late.”

“I want you.” Damn, it felt so good to say the words.

“Yeah, okay.” She gave me a goofy look and a thumbs-up. “Please don’t make me feel any more idiotic than I do right now.”

Yeah, enough of this bullshit.

I pounced in one smooth motion, taking her back to the couch, sliding over her as I gathered her wrists in one hand above her head and settled between her open thighs.

Home.

“Holy shit, you move fast.” There was no fear or rejection in her eyes, just surprise.

“Not in every arena,” I promised.

Her lips parted.

“Ella. I want you.”

“Beckett…you don’t have to.”

Yeah, that soft little sigh she did was going to be my undoing.

I let go of her wrists, letting my fingers trail down her arm until I had one hand weaving my fingers into the hair at the base of her scalp and the other at the curve in her waist.

“Feel this?” Then I slid forward, letting my dick stroke along the seam in her pajama pants hard enough for her to gasp at the contact. I couldn’t remember ever wanting to shred a piece of fabric so much in my life. “I’ve never wanted a woman as much as I want you.”

I moved again, and her eyes slid shut as she let loose the sweetest moan.

My dick throbbed, knowing everything I’d fantasized about for the better part of the last eight months was one decision away.

“Beckett.” Her hands found my biceps, her nails digging in.

“Don’t ever think that I don’t want you, because if things were different, I would have already been inside you. I would know exactly how you feel, and what you sound like, look like, when you come. I’ve thought about it at least a hundred different ways, and believe me, I’ve got a great imagination.”

She rocked her hips against me, and I locked my jaw to keep from giving her exactly what her body was asking for. “Ella, you have to stop.”

“Why?” she asked, her lips dangerously close to mine. “What do you mean if things were different?” Her eyes flew wide. “Is this because I have kids?”

“What? No. Of course not. It’s because you’re Ryan’s little sister.” Before I could do any more damage, I got the hell off her and sat back on my side of the couch.

“Because…I’m Ryan’s little sister,” she repeated, scooting so she sat upright, facing me. “And you think he’d, what? Haunt you?”

Three things: The letter. The cancer. The lie.

I repeated those in my head until I was certain I could look at her and not drag her back under me.

“Beckett?”

“When I was growing up, if I wanted something, I took it. Immediately. I had sex at fourteen with a girl in my foster home of the moment. I opened Christmas presents early if I was lucky enough to get one, and it was usually from my social worker or some charity.”

“I don’t understand.” She wrapped her arms around her knees again.

“I took it immediately because I knew if I didn’t, chances were I wouldn’t get it. It was a now-or-never kind of thing—there weren’t second chances.”

“Okay.”

“I can’t touch you, can’t talk about it, because I’m afraid I’ll act on it.”

“And why does that matter if I want you to?”

“Because I won’t get a second chance. And I’m crap with people, with relationships. I’ve never had one that lasted more than a month. Never loved a woman I’ve slept with. And chances are I’d do something to screw this up, because it’s not just my dick that wants you, Ella.”

That O popped right back onto her face, and I closed my eyes to keep from lunging across the distance and kissing her. Knowing she’d let me—that she wanted it—sent my need from a bullet to a nuclear missile.

“And when I’d screw it up, because it would happen, trust me, it would hurt Colt and Maisie, too. You’d be on your own again, because there’s no chance you’d let me hang around and help you out like Ryan asked.”

“And there it is.”

“There it is. You’re Ryan’s little sister.”

“There were only five years between us. Not so little, you know.” She reached for the remote.

“I’m well aware.”

“So if Ryan were still alive…” She shot one last look at me.

I let everything slip for a millisecond, letting her see it all in my eyes, how badly I wanted her, and not just for her body. “Everything would be different.”

“Everything?”

“Everything but the way I feel about you, which he probably would have killed me for. Where does that leave us?”

“You mean besides me being a dried-up spinster and you being honor-bound to a ghost?”

“Something like that.”

She rolled her head along the back of the couch, muttering something that sounded like a curse word under her breath. Then she sat up straight and powered on the TV with a click of her thumb. “That leaves us choosing a movie on demand. Because I’m not letting you walk out that door right now.”

“You’re not?”

“Nope. You walk out now, you might get all weird about this and not come back. Honor is a fabulous thing, but sometimes pride can be a lot stronger, especially when you convince yourself it’s for the good of the other person.”

Damn, the woman knew me.

“So movie it is,” I agreed. “Just…stay on your side of the couch.”

“I wasn’t the one who crossed the center line,” she teased with a smile that got me hard all over again.

Movie chosen, we sat and watched, both of us stealing sideways glances. There was that saying…the horse out of the barn. Yeah, the horse was out of the barn, and it wasn’t going back in. Not no way. Not no how.

That horse was running amok and screwing with my carefully constructed control.

But I didn’t complain when she moved over. Or when she pressed against my side. Nope. I lifted my arm and savored the feel of her curves, her trust. Still didn’t complain when she lay down in my arms. Hell no, I held on and memorized every second.

 

 

“This story gripped me from start to finish. The Last Letter is poignant, heartfelt and utterly consuming. I loved it!” – Mia Sheridan, NYT Bestselling Author

 

“Hands down, the best book I’ve read all year.” – Fic Wishes
