Eli Crane is one tough bastard. After an explosion left him injured and honorably discharged from the Marines, all he wants is to be left alone.

But when beautiful number eleven walks through the door, Eli will do anything to make her stay.

But this beauty and her hot billionaire bad boy soon find themselves mixing business with pleasure in the most delicious ways. And passionate, stubborn Isabella won't rest until she tames this wicked beast . . .

TOP 5 FAVORITE LINES FROM THE BASTARD BILLIONAIRE
#5~ Isabella Sawyer’s smart-aleck remark when Eli fires her for the umpteenth time:
“Apologies, Eli, but I’m not changing my shoes.” She came into his office, her hips swaying with each sure step she took toward him.
“Fine. Then you’re fired.”
“Oh, no, not again.”
#4~ Merina, the heroine from The Billionaire Bachelor shows up as yet another feisty woman who refuses to bow to Eli’s gruffness.
“I can go out into public, you know,” he grumbled, setting the beer bottle next to his plate—on the table, no coaster, thank you very much. “You guys don’t have to come in here and serve me.”
He was skilled at his new role of miserable bastard, and since everyone expected it now, he was determined to excel.
“Oh but we do, Lord Crane.” Merina smiled demurely as she leaned over and handed him a glass.
#3~ I loved this line after Eli and Isa had sex—his honesty cracked me up!
“I like this.” She touched the corner of his mouth. “I’ve been trying to get you to smile since I started working here.”
“Well now you know how to do it.”
#2~ Bold Isabella knows how to ask for what she wants!
“Is kissing you in my marching orders for tomorrow night?” he asked, his eyes picking up a trace of heat.
She wasn’t going to pass up this opportunity. No way. No how.
“Yes,” she answered. “Need to practice?”
#1~ Eli’s worry that he didn’t have what it took is my favorite line in the book.
He’d done what he needed to be a good soldier.
Now that he wasn’t a soldier, he wasn’t sure what it took to be a good man.
You’re going to want ALL the Crane brothers … I know I do. 😋 These Billionaire Bad Boys are oh so good!
