(Runaway Billionaires: Arthur Duet, #2)
Publication date: May 16th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
London trial lawyer Gen has managed to corral that randy colt His Lordship Arthur Finch-Hatten, the Earl of Severn, at least as far as anyone knows. In public, he seems to be behaving himself, but she’s kind of gotten involved with her client in a way that the Bar’s Ethics Committee would totally not approve of. With Arthur’s impending trial in the House of Lords and the constant backstabbing in her law office, the last thing Gen needs is for Arthur to whisk her off to Paris for the social wedding of the century to schmooze the people who will decide his fate.
Gen has broken all the rules, and she could very well end up with a broken heart.
She needs a stiff drink, and it had better be hard liquor.
Hard Liquor is the exciting conclusion to the Arthur Duet that begins with Stiff Drink.
Monday morning at fifteen minutes before nine o’clock, Gen was hurrying to the committee chamber in the Palace of Westminster. The Palace was more commonly known as the Houses of Parliament, though the building housed much more than the House of Lords and the House of Commons.
She strode through the committee rooms building, toting a rolling file box stuffed full of evidence and pre-printed motions and anything else she thought might ever, conceivably, come up.
Gen and Octavia had packed the rolling cart that morning in a last-minute strategy meeting at five o’clock A.M. The whole time, Octavia had chanted, “We must arrive early. ‘Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will arrive exhausted.’ So we will arrive early.”
Gen arrived early.
They were goddamn ready for this.
She was going to war.
Pippa had driven her to the Palace of Westminster, and she had immediately consulted her phone for an interior map so she wouldn’t get lost. The Victoria Tower loomed at one end of the huge building, which was a fireproof behemoth that held the records of the Empire.
The Elizabeth Tower that housed Big Ben stood at the other end of the palace.
Arthur was standing by the large, wooden door in the wide hallway, leaning against the wall, staring at his phone.
Gen raised her hand in greeting, stretching her legs to cover the thick carpet as she strode toward him. “Arthur! Good. I just saw Octavia. She’s two minutes behind me in a cab. We’re all here, and we’re all ready. This is going to be a total victory. It’s going to be a goddamn slaughter. We’re going to go in there with our briefs and our mountains of evidence and argue the pants off those assholes.”
Arthur raised his head from where he looked at his phone. His face was perfectly impassive, but his stormcloud gray eyes were so stunned that they seemed blank.
He said, “We’ve had a problem.”

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.
