A millionaire magnate had her phone!
When Chelsea realized she'd accidentally swapped cell phones with someone, she knew how this would play out: she'd trek back into town, swap phones with some middle-aged man with a paunch and be on her way.
…now he wanted her body!
Only, seriously sexy Damien "Rich-list" Halliburton was way out of her league. She'd sworn off men long ago, but with a guy this gorgeous, how could she refuse his wicked, seductive and very indecent proposal?
Ally Blake has created a sensual dance with The Magnate’s Indecent Proposal. It’s the first book about the Halliburton family, featuring the handsome Damien; the second being A Night with the Society Playboy featuring Damien Halliburton’s sister and his best friend Caleb. Usually I read series in order but that didn’t happen this time but this story is also a stand alone and so wonderfully executed that you sincerely won’t want to miss the experience.
Their story begins on a fun and light note…..they are both lunching at a posh restaurant which requires checking in your cell phone. Chelsea is running late meeting her sister for lunch. When the restaurant tells her she has to check her phone, she’s not happy as it has her entire life and business on it. In a hurry and not paying attention, she literally bumps into Damien. All I can say is the sparks fly between them. When Damien leaves to go back to his office, he is given Chelsea’s phone…need I say more?
Chelsea is not only beautiful, she’s spirited, owns and runs a successful business Pride and Groom a pet grooming service. She’s very independent but is very close to her sister. You’ll also learn one thing about Chelsea; she has trust issues due to being raised by a con-artist father. When she bumps into the handsome millionaire he takes her breath away and her life will change forever.
Damien is one smart and wealthy man who was born with a silver spoon, charm and owns a successful day trader business in Melbourne. He also has commitment issues when it comes to relationships and is only committed to his work. He’s also recently left a two year relationship and is definitely not looking for anything permanent. When he accidentally meets Chelsea, he’s intrigued and immediately realizes after only speaking with her on the phone, they have chemistry.
The Magnate’s Indecent Proposal is a charming and romantic love story about two people from different worlds who in the end can’t live without each other and are meant to be together. How they get there is something as a reader, you’ll want to experience.
