The challenge: two weeks without your billionaire fortune!

Greek magnate Stavros Xenakis must go undercover to win a bet—and escape his grandfather's demands that he take a bride. Until encountering deliciously tempting housekeeper Calli proves that a wife is exactly what he needs!

Calli's baby being taken away robbed her of the ability to trust anyone. Now Stavros's offer to marry her gives her the chance to finally find her son. But Calli doesn't expect their honeymoon to be so sinfully sensual—and for life as the temporary Mrs. Xenakis to be so exquisitely satisfying…

With the second book in The Secret Billionaire’s trio, Dani Collins brings us the story of Stavros Xenakis. He’s damaged and bitter, but meeting Calli brings out a side of him that’s been missing for a long time. The story line is intense and healing for both of them. Really enjoyed!

Stavros Xenakis knew taking part in this silly bet between his fellow extreme sport buddies was crazy, but hey, living without his name or fortune for 2 weeks is easy as pie and will force Sebastien to hand over his billions to a worthy search & rescue cause! It will be a little uncomfortable, but short-lived … what could go wrong?

Finding a woman worthy of taking home and making his temporary bride is a big surprise! Calli is the housekeeper where he is sent to be the pool guy for his 2 week bet. He’s being hounded by his grandfather to take a bride and settle down if he wants to get him to retire and hand over the family business to him, so what better way to thumb his nose at the demands than to bring a Greek bride home with him?

Calli would do anything to get closer to where she knows her son was taken when he was stolen from her … even marry an arrogant man! Will she find herself enjoying the time she spends with him more than she expected?

I know I shouldn't covet my sister's ex-boyfriend.

She may have wanted nothing to do with his BDSM lifestyle, but I'm a born submissive. And the only place I want to be is under Simon's command.

But he won't go near me. Not with the memory of her so close.

That leaves me no choice. If he won't touch me when he knows who I am, I'll have to come to him in disguise.

He's worth the risk. I'm meant to be his. Now I just have to prove it to him.


Being a Dominant cost me my first love, but I can't deny who I am. I won't. Control and power are everything, and the way I keep mine is by playing only with experienced subs. No exceptions.

Until I met her.

She wore a mask, but I knew the moment our lips touched she was meant to belong to me. Young, new to the world of BDSM—I knew training her would be a risk.

I didn't know it would destroy me.

A sensual exploration of BDSM, an unorthodox second-chance romance and a sweet against-all-odds love story, all rolled into one! There was just something about Chloe and Simon that attached them to my heart early on in the book. They both had their scars and yearned for the forbidden … and luckily were strong enough to let themselves reach for it! Really enjoyed their story.

Chloe Reynolds yearns to submit herself, body and soul, to the one man that she has always wanted. Yes, he’s off-limits … yes, he’d have rejected her if he’d known who she was before she kissed him … yes, her family will never be the same again if she moves forward with her desire … but she can’t live with denying herself her completion anymore. Years passing hasn’t waned her love.

Being a dominant cost Simon Delgado his first love … Chloe’s sister. When a masked woman kisses him and blows his mind, he is horrified to realize that it’s Chloe. He can’t touch her … she’s Cassie’s sister! He runs as fast as he can in the other direction! As months pass and he can’t get that kiss or Chloe out of his mind, he realizes when he runs into her again at the club that fate is stepping in whether he likes it or not.  He will train her … for one month … and then walk away.
