Never fall in love with your best friend...
I met Hal on the first day of high school.
I also fell in love with Hal on the first day of high school.
But although we were good friends from the start, I knew he'd never be mine.
He's gorgeous, confident, sexy, and he's also incredibly rich.
I'm scarred - physically and emotionally - quiet, and my family has always been poor. The two of us are poles apart.
So I've trained myself not to think of him in that way.
Not to think of kissing him, undressing him slowly.
Of sliding beneath the bedclothes. Of having his hands on my skin.
I don't think of it at all.
I can't. Because Hal never stays with a girl for long, and if he were to have me, then leave me, my heart would break into a million pieces, and I'd never be able to put it together again.
But then he tells me he's fallen in love with someone. I try to guess who, and he just smiles.
"Izzy," he says patiently, "it's you."

The books are all standalones, and you don't have to have read the Three Wise Men to enjoy The Billionaire Kings, but if you have read them you will hopefully have fun meeting up with Brock, Charlie, and Matt occasionally in these stories! This new series takes place approximately thirty years after the Three Wise Men, but it's not set 'in the future'. I just thought it would be fun to write a new series that had a connection to one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Will the majestic piece of art that hangs in Patrick Andersen's home lead them to his missing sister...
Betrayal is the first novella in the ongoing saga of the Andersen Family series.
Livia Andersen was a woman who held her family together with a quiet smile and an iron will. Yet less than a week after her death only two of her four children attend the reading of her Will.

Livia's youngest daughter is not alone in missing the reading of her Will. Her oldest son is absent as well though for far different reasons.

The Andersen Saga is a story of family. It is a story about joy and loss, hope and sorrow, betrayal and regrets, unconditional forgiveness, high expectations, and unwavering loyalty. It reminds that at the heart of who we are is the family we come from, the family who stands behind and beside us and at times against us.
