Everything in this series is charming, from the covers to the stories, and chances are you’ll read with a smile on your face. I like that kind of reading!
The series is Billionaire’s Club by C.L. Donley, a Contemporary Romance.
Amara’s Calling ~ Billionaire’s Club Series Book 1
Looking for your next billionaire book boyfriend? Meet Grayson Davis. He’s a brilliant, bullied computer nerd turned handsome playboy, with a penchant for blondes. She’s the assistant to the assistant, who works on the third floor and is… not blonde. And secretly obsessed with him. Complete with all the classic “plain Jane” tropes you thought were hopelessly overdone, read the smart, sexy, binge worthy debut exceeding “billionaire romance” expectations!
Amara’s Calling is the first book in the Billionaire’s Club series of sinfully sexy romances. If you like unexpected love, lucrative deals, and billionaires with as much prowess in the bedroom as the boardroom, then you’ll love C.L. Donley’s steamy office affair.
Mya’s Pride ~ Billionaire’s Club Series Book 2
Mya McIntosh is attending the wedding of the year as the maid of honor to her best friend Amara Davis, the former employee and wife of billionaire social media mogul Grayson Davis. A dazzling destination wedding in Spain seems like the perfect setting for Mya to finally lose this pesky virginity of hers, but her prospects don’t look promising. Amara has high hopes that Mya could land one of Grayson’s billionaire best friends but Mya isn’t so sure, especially when it comes to Grayson’s obnoxious business partner Dale Abernathy. After a few awkward moments, bad first impressions, a ton of assumptions and a sexy interlude on top of a hill, Mya’s search for Mr. Right Now lands her somewhere she least expected: in love.
Kim’s Courage ~ Billionaire’s Club Series Book 3
A year after her best friend Amara’s wedding united them, Kim Pritchard finds herself in the hospital with the baby she conceived with billionaire internet mogul Bel Hafiz. Not only has Kim neglected to tell Bel about his son, now she will have to tell him he’s fighting for his life in the NICU. Since the handsome middle eastern playboy “ghosted” her, she wonders if he even cares enough about either of them to reach out. Little does she know that Bel Hafiz has plenty to hide, including the fact that he hasn’t been able to get the gorgeous, one-of-a-kind Kimberly Pritchard out of his head, or his heart.
The final book in the Billionaire’s Club Trilogy!
So Bel was actually on his way. To the hospital.
Deep breath, girl, she told herself.
Once Jabari was born, Kim had to face the fact that she would be laying eyes on Bel again eventually at some point. She just planned to be wearing a Diane von Furstenberg jumpsuit with six-inch heels, and her hair blown out when it happened.
He was undoubtedly going to be looking like sex and wealth no matter how he showed up, so she had to get her mind right. A children’s hospital was no place to be engaging in fisticuffs, certainly not the time to be having hot uncensored flashbacks like the ones that had already begun in her head.
Shit. He’d been her first and only. She was too mentally turned around to even think about sleeping with someone else afterward. Then she found out she was pregnant; then she found out she wasn’t anymore, then the next thing she knew she was having a baby.
Her son caused her to tear when coming out, and she thought she’d never want to look at another dick after that. Jabari was the man in her life for only a few short months before disaster hit.
Suddenly now she was thinking of Bel and thus became aware of her body again. Her vagina again, once her bodily protectee, her obsession.
She thought back to the gravitational pull of their first meeting, and that was before the sex. If he showed up all smiles, all sociopathic smoothness, would she even be able to resist? Hell, did she even want to?
Shocks went through her body. Oh no. Would she really betray herself with something so low? She’d seen women do lower things for lesser reasons. She thought back to her mom the prostitute, in the alley. She couldn’t relinquish that kind of power.
But then, if she truly wanted him out of her life, she knew well enough that becoming clingy and desperate would be the way to do it. Either he would flee the scene, or he would show himself to be so despicable, that what’s left of her desire would be completely snuffed out.
Nah, that wasn’t even her style.
She’d have to find the courage to resist him. Sexy beast or not, he didn’t deserve her.
“Call me when you get close. The hospital’s like a maze, I can meet you out front,” Kim said.
“Okay. Any good news?”
“Possibly. The doctor says if I can find somebody with Jabari’s blood type, they can do a live donor transplant just using a piece of someone’s liver. That way I can bypass the waiting list, but that still takes like, four to six weeks, and that’s if I found someone today.”
“It can be anyone?”
“Yeah, just as long as they’re his blood type. The liver regenerates so the piece will grow into a full liver.”
“Oh my God!”
“I know right? Amazing.”
“What’s his blood type?”
“I’m B positive.”
“Girl, don’t even say it. Let’s do it.”
Kim let herself weep with joy a bit. Her boy was going to be okay. The future was back in view. She held the phone, speechless.
“I’ll call you when we get there,” Mya concluded.
“Okay,” Kim sniffed, “I love you so much, girl.”
“We love you. We’re on our way.”

About the Author
C.L. Donley is a future New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of multicultural and interracial romance, who believes romance novels that are impossible to put down are the only kind that should exist!

Love it or hate it, fans and critics alike can’t deny her talent, and always find themselves coming back for more!
She loves hearing from readers and discussing her favorite parts of her own books, so feel free to indulge her.
Hi C.L. and thank you so much for being here today!
What inspired you to write this series?
I was reading a lot of romance at the time, and as a writer (I wasn’t an author yet), I was seeing little issues with the way the stories were being told, and thought I could probably do a better job, but the longest thing I’d ever written was my Master’s creative thesis which was about 20ish thousand words and took a whole semester and was really daunting. So I didn’t think I could write a whole book. But the more I read, the more my mind was automatically coming up with ideas on how to make the tropes better and elevate the storytelling to something more emotional, even if it’s just something fun and escapist.
What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
This was my first foray into writing romance, and to be able to create a world and characters just the way that I thought they should be, was really a shift for me and as a writer was completely thrilling. And then, having it be well-received by other romance readers was another thrill.
What do you think about the current publishing market?
I’m self-published and I love it. A lot of people criticize Amazon and they should, because it is a big beast and there are a lot of things that still need to improve, but I do think it’s the best model. Everything seems to be geared toward what customers like and want to see more of, and that alone has caused the romance writing landscape on Amazon to look very different from the traditionally published selection. Amazon is offering up proof that the traditional publishing way is not the end all or be all. They bank on what had made them money in the past, and I respect that. But being able to use Amazon to find my audience, and cut out the middle man as it were, has given me such an opportunity that I know I wouldn’t have, otherwise.
What’s the most difficult thing about writing characters from the opposite sex?
Not knowing how sex feels for them, haha. I do a lot of “guy research” that’s only become more intense since I started. Dating advice gurus, message boards, any honest, unfiltered accounts that will help me get into the male psyche. I’ve learned quite a lot by doing that, but there are some things you just gotta make up! :p
