Trusting the Boss (Billionaires in the City #4)

June 19, 2015


Billionaire heiress Emma Devaroux has been living a safe-yet-mundane existence in Georgia for too long, but when she learns her sister, Joslyn, has been arrested, she heads to New York City to find out what really happened. Unfortunately, as an unemployed debutante, she’s not exactly qualified to be leading an investigation. But help is at hand in the form of the handsome, former military man Jace Lance who happens to be the one who got her sister arrested in the first place.

Jace thinks Emma is crazy for even considering working with him since he’s the one who stopped Joslyn from killing his former client. However, he can’t deny that the sexy southerner is in over her head when her tycoon cousins try to hire him to make sure Emma doesn’t find out the truth about what really caused her sister’s murderous actions.

As they begin to uncover the truth together –and get to know each other intimately – it becomes clear that the more answers they get, the more danger Emma is in. Jace is determined to protect her, but how can he keep her safe when her whole family is in on the conspiracy?


“Are you okay?”

Another shiver racked through her. “No. I’m cold and pissed.”

Her Southern accent was more noticeable in her anger and he cracked a small smile. “You have seaweed in your hair.” He plucked it out and tossed it back into the black water.

Emma set her hands on his chest and pushed up. “Do you have any idea how much seaweed was down there? It was disgusting! I thought it was going to grab me and pull me down.”

Jace had swum through his fair share of seaweed-infested water and he knew exactly how disconcerting it could be. But he couldn’t stop himself from giving her a hard time. “Come on. You’re not saying a little old plant scared you?”

She gave him a playful punch to his chest. “You’re such a show-off. I can’t believe that you made it all the way out there without an issue and I took two steps and fell in.” She glanced to her left and rolled her eyes. “Not even your phone fell in after all that!”

Jace let out a laugh and caught her wrist as she went in for another blow. “Hey, I’m not going to apologize for being good at what I do. I walked on the edge closer to the support. You ran out right onto the weakest part of the planks.”

Emma stared down at him and in a flash, the joking air was gone, replaced by something decidedly hotter than the ocean water that now soaked through their clothes. “I guess I hired the best,” she said softly.

About The Author:

Mallory Crowe has lived in Michigan her whole life and has been in love with romance ever since she’d skip to the end of every novel, just to make sure the hero and heroine survived and ended up together. She lives with her husband and three dogs. When she’s not writing, she’s spending too much time in front of the TV, hiking, or working with various animal rescues.


List three books you have recently read and would recommend. 
I really loved Feels Like Home and Loving Bailey from Evelyn Adams. Kathleen Brooks’ Women of Power series was also amazing! Book One is Built For Power. For a steamier read, I go to Cali MacKay’s Passion and Surrender.

Tell us something that people would be surprised you know how to do. 
Well before I started writing, I was a licensed CPA and passed all sections of the exam in one try and I don’t think most people expect accounting and romance author to go together in one person. I’ve met so many fellow romance writers who have the most interesting backgrounds or former day jobs. It’s fascinating when you realize that creativity isn’t only limited to certain types of people.

Will you write more about these characters? 
For sure! The heroine of TRUSTING THE BOSS, Emma Devaroux, is the sister of someone introduced in the 3rd book in the series and the next four books will all focus on the not so functional Devaroux family. Emma and then her three cousins (who are all brothers) each get their own book as they try to clean up a relative’s mistakes and end up getting pulled into an FBI investigation.
