Peek Inside Making Over The Billionaire

Designer Layla Langham is on a mission to convince the House of Borhlenghi to buy her designs. Now she's been given a chance at her dream... but only if she “lures” reclusive and work-obsessed (and really hot) billionaire Georgio Borlenghi to his family's yacht in Capri. With her career on the line and a very sexy Italian in her sights, each night with Georgio becomes a lesson in seduction and pleasure. But now the only way to achieve her dream is to lose the man she's falling for...

Never fall for your own deception…

After a failed bid to be the first American designer at House of Borhlenghi, Layla Langham is crushed. She’s certain she’s perfect for their company, and she’s risked all her savings to prove it. But Giorgio Borhlenghi’s sisters think Layla’s perfect, too—for the design house and their workaholic brother. They convince her they’ll sway their brother into accepting her designs if she’ll get him to stop working for a long weekend—by any means necessary.

Giorgio Borlenghi suspects Layla’s invitation for a relaxing lunch is something his sisters fashioned to lure him away from his desk. But instead of turning the sexy redhead away, he decides to teach all three ladies a lesson and “kidnaps” the beautiful designer to his family’s yacht in Naples to see just how far the ambitious designer wants to take this ruse…

Neither expected one kiss could lead to enough heat to burn up the sheets for days—nor make them want to give up work and never leave the bedroom again.
