Billionaires in Disguise: Rae by Blair Babylon
Publication date: May 7th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Romance
How could one wild quickie with a hot guy against a wall at a party change everything so fast?
All Rae wanted was to open a clinic for autistic kids. To do a little good in this world. To help some kids who were trapped in darkness and fear.
But a statistics class tripped her up. She is losing her scholarship, which means that she’s leaving college to go back to her poverty-stricken hometown. It’s too late for grants. Too late for loans. No job exists that can pay for college tuition. She’s finished, and she has to go back to her family and their repressive beliefs that she thought she was better than she ought to be for trying to go to college, anyway.
She has three weeks of freedom left. Her friends tell her that there is a job that could help her, the place where they work, where she might be able to make enough cash for tuition because they do.
So they take her to an upscale party to meet the guy who runs it, and they tell her all about their boss: his cold, calculating gaze, how he can see through anyone, how no one even knows his real name, and how he might be a psychopath.
But Rae doesn’t meet their mysterious boss. She meets The Blond Hottie who tells her that his name is Wulf. He’s even taller than Rae, probably six feet-four, with a strong jaw and dark sapphire blue eyes, and an athlete’s build.
If you had three weeks of college freedom left before you went home to your fundamentalist family, what would you do?
Rae shoves The Blond Hottie up against a wall in dark bedroom, and then all Hell does break loose.
This Complete Boxed Set of Billionaires in Disguise: Rae contains all nine original episodes.
Hours later, Wulf lay on his side behind Rae in the stiff hotel bed and watched the moon rise. The horizontal blinds on the window sliced the silver moonlight into stripes as the moon skimmed over the buildings outside.
The shadows around the edges of the room drifted inward.
He stroked Rae’s soft shoulder, careful not to touch the brutal scrapes. She slept in his arms, warm and safe. Her chest rose when she breathed, slow and soft.
What could he do to keep her safe even though he was leaving?
The answer was simple. He had known it the moment he had found her huddled behind that rock.
He would take her with him.
Slowly, carefully, he must convince her that the safest place for her was with him, despite everything.
A week ago, in his car while they drove from The Devilhouse to his home, Rae had asked him whether he felt anything when he was with her. He would have made a polite answer nevertheless, but his heart had shuddered at her question, shocking him. His instinct had been to say yes, Oh God, yes, and Wulf had broken out in a cold sweat. He had equivocated in his head and stammered out an answer.
That night, in his bed, he had buried himself in her and knew that he was falling for her.
When he discovered that picture on her phone, he had thought she knew everything and was feigning ignorance to ensnare him. He hadn’t known whether to believe her when she had pled innocence. So many other women had pursued him for their own advancement. He had analyzed her every glance, her every gesture, everything she had said, for days, for nights, trying to believe in her.
Thus, he found his excuse to withdraw into the shadowlands again.
When those men had shot at her today, they might as well have been shooting at the sun to burst it like shattering a light bulb. His whole world hung on those seconds.
Turning off his horror so he could aim had been an act of will like none other in his life, and several events in his life had required momentous control.
His entire life, since he was eight years old, had been lived in the icy shadows. Brief flares had only sent him farther into the darkness, confirming that the light burned.
Rae slept, curled next to him in the bed.
Her warmth stole into his flesh.
It started where her hips fitted into his groin and where her back pressed against his chest. Her heat diffused through his skin and crept into his muscle, invading his body. It trickled down his arms and filtered through his legs, and he breathed in the sunny scent of her hair. Her warmth saturated him, filled him in, and last, it permeated that hard, painful mass of scar tissue on his back.
His heart beat harder, and his flesh warmed.
His breath caught in his chest.
Wulf had never realized how cold he had been, and for so long.

Blair Babylon is the nom de plume of an award-winning, USA Today-bestselling author who used to publish literary fiction. Because professional reviews of her other fiction usually included the caveat that there was too much deviant sex and too much interesting plot, she decided to abandon all literary pretensions, let her freak flag fly, and write hot, sexy, erotic romance, plus wild, suspenseful thrillers, science fiction, and urban fantasy using the super-secret pen name Blair C. Babylon.
