With Professor McElderry in the clutches of Gerald's nemesis Sir Mason Green and a seemingly impossible task required to save his life, the stakes are high and the heat is on. In The House of Puzzles, the fifth book of the Billionaire Series, Gerald, Ruby Sam and Felicity face their greatest challenge yet. Richard Newsome lives in Brisbane with his family.

“The first book in this series was fantastic, and each book has gotten better. This book was so exciting, sexy, and so suspenseful… I will be reading this book again - after I read all the next books in the series.” Lori Ryan’s Sutton Billionaire Series is now available in two boxed sets to let you binge that much faster! This set will get you started with books one through three: The Billionaire Deal: He needs a wife. She needs a paycheck. But neither expect the heat in their marriage of convenience. No one backs CEO Jack Sutton into a corner, not even his mother... or her will. If he wants his inheritance, he needs to be married, but no one said the marriage had to be anything other than a business arrangement. There are plenty of willing women, and they'll play by the rules: stick to the script and don't fall in love. He only has to find one in time. Too bad he only left himself a few hours. Kelly Bradley made it into the law school of her dreams, but she has no way to pay and the tuition deadline is fast approaching. Marrying a billionaire might be a bit drastic, but spending one year on his arm will make all her problems go away... if she can keep her heart in check. That's never been a problem in the past. It's a business arrangement, but when one thing leads to another will Jack be able to let Kelly go? Or can he find a way to renegotiate the deal of his life? Reuniting with the Billionaire: Two people whose past ensures they can never fully trust again Jill can play with Andrew Weston. She can have fun with him. She can even have a wild, no-strings-attached rebound fling with him. But she can’t lose my heart to him. Because if they fall in love and that love died the way her ex-husband’s love for her died, she wouldn’t be able to handle it. She can’t go through that again. Not with the sexy billionaire from her past who tempts her at every turn. ******** He’s falling for Jill Walsh. He knows it’s happening but can’t stop it. But no matter what happens, he can’t let her know how he feels. Sharing feelings makes you vulnerable and he can’t let himself be vulnerable to a woman like that again. So he’ll keep his feelings a secret while he uses his vast fortune to make sure she marries him and never walks away. 5-star billionaire romance that will have you turning pages to the very end! Reuniting with the Billionaire was originally published in a shorter version as part of the Sutton Capital Series. It’s a stand-alone book that can be read in any order in the series. The Billionaire Op: Can she ever get over her broken heart? Jennie Evans has known true love, and it died with her husband. But she's found balance in her life: friends and a job she loves at Sutton Capital. And there might be a man that caught her eye, but she'll never give him her heart. Chad Thompson sees what others don't: Jennie's hurting inside and hiding it from the world. Their chemistry may be off the charts, but he vows not to push. Even if true happiness might be within reach. When their meddling friends throw Jennie and Chad together in a plot designed to push them out of their comfort zones, she ends up in more danger than anyone could have imagined. To keep her safe, Chad will have to risk his body and his heart, and no matter how things end, one of them is going to get hurt. The Billionaire Op is a standalone book in the Sutton Billionaires Series. A shorter version of it was previously published as part of the Sutton Capital Series.
