Destiny of a Donovan
by A.C. Arthur
Fighting for everything…

Brynne Donovan has been in one battle after another—with obesity, drowning in her big sister’s shadow and now finding out that her father had a secret son. She’s reached her breaking point and decides to recuperate from her weight loss surgery in private. It’s well past time for her to take control of her life and to live the way she wants without her family name dictating her choices. Accepting the invitation of a friend, Brynne decides that her new life will begin at the end of her stay at a vineyard in Napa Valley. She could not have selected a better place to convalesce, especially since her friend’s older brother was very easy on the eyes and as charming as any storybook prince. He was everything her family would disapprove of—older, richer and of a different race. But Brynne doesn’t care, the passion between them overrules everything and everyone else, until her new big brother shows up and threatens everything Brynne has fought so hard to find. 

…and determined to hold on to it all.

Wade Basset Banks, III is a third generation billionaire, who’s known in the business arena for his tenacity and killer smile. When his sister introduces him to her college friend, it doesn’t take Wade long to decide he wants her. It’s then that he recognizes her name and recalls meeting other members of this illustrious family. Accustomed to adversity Wade is not up for a secret affair and when Brynne gives him an ultimatum he’s offended and heartbroken. Defeat isn’t something Wade’s used to experiencing and Brynne’s announcement leaves him wondering about the future he once envisioned for himself. 

In the midst of relationship turmoil, Brynne and Wade will soon find themselves in the middle of a media firestorm and nothing either of them have ever experienced prepares them for the moment Roslyn Ausby plays her final hand.

BLOG TOUR - Delaney Diamond - More Than A Mistress

Will their arrangement ever be enough?

Relationships are not a priority for restaurateur Esteban Galiano, and when he sees Sonia Kennedy at a party, he plans to make her a conquest in a long line of many. But she rebuffs his advances and forces him to adjust—determined to meet the challenge and do whatever he must to make her his.

All her life, Sonia’s beauty has caused unnecessary problems, and right now she needs a job, not a suitor. When Esteban makes an indecent proposal, her first instinct is to turn him down. But soon she’s rethinking her response. Maybe it’s time for her to use what she’s got, to get what she wants.


In the back of the Maybach, Sonia didn’t want to dwell on Esteban, but she couldn’t help it. His lips had touched the inside of her wrist instead of the back of her hand and lingered inappropriately long. The simple touch had inflamed her skin and awakened a craving for more—more kisses, more touching. She was out of her depth with him.
She pressed a hand over her rapidly beating heart. She’d enjoyed herself and him too much. Several times she caught herself flirting with him, an absolute no-no.
As the vehicle rolled down the causeway, she looked out the window at the twinkling lights of the approaching skyline. Before too long she would be back at her small one-bedroom, a huge difference from the grand home she’d recently left. You could literally drop her entire apartment into his living room and still have room to spare.
Being wined and dined by a charming man was definitely seductive, and it became clear how women could get caught up in being arm candy for a man like Esteban. The luxury car, grand home, and fine dining were all very enticing.
But she had principles and was too smart to get seduced into such a lifestyle.
She just had to keep reminding herself of that.
