Author Bio

Mandy Lou Dowson was born and raised in a small town in Ireland, in 1983, and at this stage in life, she's pretty sure the town won't let her leave. Family is a huge deal to Mandy. She has three wonderful children (most of the time), and two Siberian Huskies who are each as naughty as the other – in fact, she's sure they egg each other on in silly cartoon voices when nobody is looking.

“Climb out the window and get covered in mud.”

“No, I did it last time. You do it!”

“R'uh, r'oh, here SHE is. Shhh.”


~

When she's not writing, reading, or plotting her next book -- or, you know, world domination – , she likes to relax with a few glasses of wine and some karaoke. You can usually find her procrastinating on social media of some sort, chatting to fans and talking nonsense.
 
Mandy started reading at quite a young age and her appetite for the written word has only increased with time. It would not be at all surprising to find her reading anything and everything from shampoo bottles to Edgar Allan Poe.
 
She is the author of three different genres of romance books. The Moon Bound series, which is in the Paranormal Romance genre, and is gathering rave reviews, and the Taboo series, which is Contemporary with a hint of the forbidden, the first of which has gathered very mixed reviews across the board, from one extreme to the other.

She has also made a foray into Dark Romance recently, with her first title in the genre, Retribution, releasing in Summer 2015.

BILLIONAIRE BARGAIN




Title: The Billionaire Bargain Part 3
Series: The Billionaire Bargain #3
Author: Lila Monroe
 Release Date: February 12, 2015


Synopsis


Last week I was in the penthouse with a sexy Australian billionaire. Now I’m back to Netflix Friday nights and leftover takeout. And it’s all my fault.

I’m the one who left the high life behind, and all because I couldn’t bring myself to go through with a sham marriage to my sexy boss Grant Devlin — because I went and fell in love with him for real.

I know, stupid.

Now he won’t talk to me, my job is hanging by a thread, and oh yeah, an evil plot to take over Devlin Media Corp means all my hard work could be for nothing. If we’re going to save the company, I need Grant’s help.

Help that doesn’t include hot sex in the copy room.

Wish me luck.

Book Excerpts


EXCERPT ONE

“Isn’t your father named Ulrich? I’m not giving birth to an Ulrich. It sounds like the name of a war criminal,” she told him. Vincent released her and frowned. Me and my big, insensitive mouth… “But I’m sure your father wears it with my pride,” she said rapidly.  I’m not pregnant anyway. “I love you,” she said sheepishly when he unwound her from his body and sat upright on the bed. What, no more sexy time?
“You are so frustrating sometimes Babe,” he told her and helped her up to sit next to him. “You’re lucky I love you too.” He kissed her tenderly and caressed her hair. “My mother had the exact same reaction,” he said with a cheeky grin. “Why do you want a name starting with an S?” he asked more seriously.
Sémya simply shrugged back. On her father’s side, everyone’s name started with an S, including hers. She didn’t know her paternal family, only that the Dovos were powerful, rich and dangerous. But her mother named her Sémya for a reason and she would really like to know why. She put her arms around his neck. “Don’t be daft Heinz. Sasha is a name I’ve always liked. Sasha Slotin… it has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?” she asked, calling him by his alias Josh Heinz.
Vincent laughed and pulled her onto his lap. “Edgerton… my child, my name,” he told her. Sémya blushed back. She might break that curse the women in her family seemed to be under. My possible baby will have a father! “But not Sasha,” he added.
Sémya pouted back but involuntary purred when Vincent ran his hand over her back. Vincent kissed her, slowly at first but then he deepened the kiss, pressing her against him. His hard-defined body was fitting perfectly against her new lush curves. “What names do you have in mind then?” she moaned.
“We’re going to miss our flight,” he whispered in her ear instead and licked it. She shuddered in his arms. That was an understatement. Polliannah wasn’t going to like that. “A special name to the both of us, one that means something and symbolizes us, our love, our unique situation… how beautiful, smart, funny, stubborn, and sexy his or her mother is and how nuts about her I am,” he told her.
Sémya felt a tear on her cheek. Silly hormones! “This isn’t going to be easy or even possible. Who could have such a name?”
“I cannot wait to find out… if only–” Vincent said while he was lying back on their bed.
“– I’m not taking that damn pregnancy test!” she giggled.
“First thing in London?” he asked her and kissed her nose.
“First thing in London,” Sémya agreed and raised her hips to meet his. “I love you, Vincent. You’re mine and I yours…” Silly hormones!
Vincent groaned back and plunged into her. Finally… “Until my last breath Sémya Louise Slotin and maybe a little after, I love you.”
Sémya urgently kissed him and arched her back.  Heaven, I’m in absolute heaven…those silly hormones make me so girly…

EXCERPT TWO

Sémya’s mornings always started the same way.
Before even opening her eyes, her hands were patting around searching for Vincent’s warm body. He always slept against her, his strong tattooed arm wrapped around her once small waist, even if they just had a fight and they were always fighting. But no one was sharing this bed with her. Then she would open her eyes and remember the morning they arrived back in London from Toronto in July. Remember their last kiss in front of her flat in Camden, full of hope, passion, love and promises. Sémya smiled before closing her eyes again. She could never keep them opened for this part. The explosion of Skins, Vincent’s lounge, right in front of her eyes… and Vincent was inside, supposedly. She remembered the blast hitting her, the heat, pain, and then the blackout. She remembered waking up at the hospital days later with Poopie but without Vincent.
Sémya opened her eyes and gently stroked her round belly. “Good morning Poopie. Did you sleep well?” She felt a little nudge in return. “If it’s not gas you’re one magical baby, Poopie,” Sémya joked. Poopie was the glue that was keeping her together. Old Sémya never made it back. She was still in front of Skins, screaming, hoping that the man she loved wasn’t dead. New Sémya was more than determined to prove her right. New Sémya had Poopie.
Sémya finally got up and stretched out, leaving her twenty-two week belly exposed. She always slept in Vincent’s shirts or blouses. It kept her nightmares at bay and Vincent in her dreams. Her new bedroom in Chelsea was twice the size of the one she had in Camden. It also had its own bathroom and a small unfurnished nursery. Polliannah poured all her energy into decorating their much larger four bedroom townhome. Instead of helping her, Sémya was pouring hers into finding out about Vincent, his disappearance, not his death.  Vincent wasn’t dead and the sooner everyone accepted it the better.
