The Billionaire and the Banker
Money doesn’t always make the world go ‘round. Occasionally, it brings it all to a screeching halt.
Magda Onassis and her two best friends have developed an application which has caused a frenzy amongst the banking world and will make her a billionaire at twenty-six. Since the age of eighteen when her family cut her off financially, all she has ever wanted was to gain her own financial independence and tell her parents to shove her rescinded trust fund up their haughty posteriors.
When presenting the project and a sales pitch to the company who beta-tested their app, Magda comes face-to-face with chairman and CEO of Winter Financials International, Ares Winter and sparks fly.
A notorious playboy according to the tabloids, Ares flirts hard with Magda with the intention of making her his next lover. It’s been a long time since a woman has captivated his attention the way she has and he will stop at nothing to make her his.

Time is not on their side when Magda disappears and it’s unclear if she’s gone out of her own volition or if the culprit is the one person Ares has diligently worked for fifteen years to keep locked up and out of his life. Either way, urgency is paramount as Ares’ first chance at true love is at risk. He’s going to learn the hard way not everything in life is for sale, no matter how much money you have.
Magda walked along the shore trying to keep her tears at bay. She told herself there were women in the world who were kidnapped who were in far worse situations than the one she was in but she hated this. She hated everything about it. She wanted to go home.
This morning after her breakfast, Alvar had taken her into an office space and ……
