I caught a wave… It was on a whim.
While looking through various Amazon book lists (I like to see what people are buying, and I look at covers, since I enjoy creating them) Anyway, I noticed all these Billionaire romances cluttering the lists.
I remember when it was Mail Order Bride that everyone was writing (and reading). And they still seem popular.
But Billionaires, well, we’ve always loved them, haven’t we? The Prince Charmings, Royal weddings, and all that.
I honestly laughed when I first contemplated the genre. I like down-to-earth folks. Simple folks. Quirky folks. But the idea wouldn’t leave me so I sent up a prayer to my CEO (That would be the Lord) and asked for a great story idea if this was a path I should take.
Enter the Grimwood family
I didn’t get one book, I ended up with five. Five stories about four brothers and a sister who will inherit their father’s multi-billion-dollar estate, if they meet the conditions of the trust. In the trust, each one is given one of the businesses under the Grimwood umbrella and they must take that business and make it turn a profit by a certain time allotment.
So, there was that…an idea blossomed. I started making notes and then it hit me. I love fairy tale retellings. Oh, boy, things got interesting then. Duncan and Elisa would get the Beauty and the Beast story. The setting would be at the neglected Grimwood Manor where Duncan lives pretty much alone, except for a small staff with big hearts.
Jeremy and Melody would get the Snow White theme set at a struggling Sky High Ski Resort. Oh, what fun! I’ve been watching videos and wishing I could go skiing. However, I’m good with staying where it’s warm and I can watch others risk their necks. Ha!
Right now, I’m working out the third book about Colton and Pricilla. Their story is a Little Mermaid theme. Did you know there are women who actually dress up like mermaids and swim in the ocean? One has created a line of “fins” for kids and adults and hosts parties. Another one also does shoes, but she uses her platform to educate people on sea life and protecting it. (So much fun!!) Oh, the ideas bursting in my head. ha!
And here we are. The first book is out and people seem to be loving it. I’m still writing about down-to-earth folks. Quirky folks. But not so simple folks. I’ve had to put in some research, but the research makes it more interesting and I’ve always enjoyed learning new things.
Have I piqued your interest? You can meet Duncan and Elisa by going here. Or read a sample chapter here. The first bit starts off a little rough, to show where Duncan comes from, but I assure you, this story has some deep spiritual threads that I absolutely love.
My Beastly Billionaire is currently available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimted.
