Spotlight, Interview & Giveaway: The Billionaire Banker series by Georgia Le Carre

It’s no secret that I’m a self proclaimed book junky and nothing gets my girly bits tingling more than a super steamy book. What? At least I’m honest about it. I read a lot, and truthfully it takes quite a bit for me to pause and think to myself, “Wow, this book is amazing!” So imagine my surprise when I got that from the contemporary debut novel The Billionaire Banker (click on the link to read my review). This book sucked me in from the very first chapter and I was completely enraptured in the story, the characters, everything! Now some of you might look at that title and think to yourself, ‘been there, read that’, right? WRONG! Has this type of trope been done before? Most definitely. But Georgia Le Carre put a fantastic and original spin on it to make it that much better. In short, I can’t recommend theses books enough. (And not only because the awesome heroine shares my name :))

And now with the highly anticipated release of book 2 in the series, Forty 2 Days, I simply had to share this fantastic series with all of you.

The Billionaire Banker (book 1 in the series)

When Lana Bloom learns the devastating news that her mother is dying, she is faced with a terrible dilemma. The one thing that can save her is the one thing she does not have. 
For young and Innocent Lana, The unthinkable is her only choice.

When she walks through the door of that exclusive restaurant she has no idea of the seismic shift her life is about to take, for the highest bidder will not be the rich man she has accompanied.

Fate drops her at the feet of the deeply mysterious and dazzlingly gorgeous American banker, Blake Law Barrington. Throbbing with raw masculinity and arrogance, this is a man who owns all that he pursues.

And now he wants her.

Lana cannot deny she is both intrigued and intoxicated by the world Blake inhabits and the smouldering passion he stirs in her body, but she is also fearful for this man is addictive and right now she is very vulnerable. She knows she should focus only on the arrangement, but how can she?

When he has opened a door that cannot be closed…

Forty 2 Days (book 2 in the Billionaire Banker series)

Beyond the seductive power of immense wealth lies… Dark Secrets

Devastatingly handsome billionaire, Blake Law Barrington was Lana Blooms first and only love. From the moment they touched his power was overwhelming. Their arrangement quickly developed into a passionate romance that captivated her heart and took her on an incredible sexual journey she never wanted to end.
The future together looked bright until Lana made a terrible mistake. So, she did the only thing she could… she ran.

Away from her incredible life, away from the man of her dreams, but she should have known a man such as Blake Law Barrington was impossible to escape. Now, he’s back in her life and determined that she should taste the bitterness of his pain.

Shocked at how rough the sex has become and humiliated that she is actually participating so willingly in her punishment, she despairs if she will ever feel the warmth of his touch—the solidity of his trust again? And even if she can win his trust, loyalties are yet to be decided, and secrets to be revealed—secrets that will test them both to their limits.

Will Lana be able to tear down the walls that surround Blake’s heart, and break him free of the brutal power of immense wealth?

Can Blake hold on to Lana’s heart when she discovers the enormity of the dark secrets that inhabit the Barrington family?

Lana has always believed that love conquers all. She is about to test that belief…

Georgia Le Carre also happens to be one the most sweetest, gracious and down to earth authors I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She was nice enough to let little ol’ me convince her into an interview.
What’s your greatest character strength?
I haven’t truly tested it, so don’t quote me later, but I think I’m a forgiving person.
What’s your weakest character trait?
Bone-lazy tendencies.
Why do you write?
Because it is miles easier than working in slaughter-house or a chicken farm.
Who or what influences your writing?
Everything influences my writing.  What I read in the paper tomorrow could totally slant my work next week or next month.
Who or what influenced your writing over the years?
The great names have always had an impact on me.  The beauty of their sentence structure, the purity of their thought processes, and the total clarity of their expression.
What is your greatest strength as a writer?
Who do you admire?
The rare person who stands up for what is right no matter what it costs them. 
What is your favourite quality about yourself?
My ability to move on quickly when things go pear-shaped.
What is your least favourite quality about yourself?
My inability to stay and fight when things go pear-shaped.
How has your upbringing influenced your writing?
“Give me a child until he is seven and I will show you the man.”
Are your characters real people?
Most of my characters are composites of people I have known or my own fantasies of how people should behave in a given circumstance.  I once met a young lady in a repressed country who told me she would rather jump out of a high window and kill herself than give her virginity to any other than her husband. 

So I asked her, ‘But what if it was to save your mother life?’
She shook her head sadly.  ‘My mother would understand and approve of my decision not to give up my virginity in exchange for her life.’

Even though I was very young then, her words did not sit well with me.  In my mind she is Lana expressing the true ideals of love.
Did you learn anything from writing this book and what was it?
Yes, I learned about human frailty.  How easily the human mind is led by another, by that which it perceives to be stronger than it.  We are sheep herded by wolves.
If you could leave your readers with one bit of wisdom, what would you want it to be?
Do not just look, see.
When you end your career, stop writing, and look back on your life, what thoughts would you like to have?
Glad that it is finally over and excited to embrace whatever lies on the other side.
What do you hope your obituary will day about you?
She had fun.
So there you have it, my little dirty birds. A fantastic series and an even more fantastic author. I highly recommend you check it out. And you can connect with Georgia on Facebook here:
