The Billionaire's Ultimatum by Cerys Du Lys ~Tour Stop & Giveaway~

BDSM erotic romance
Date Published: 6/22/2013


Falling in love wasn't part of Jessika's temporary job description. Nor, initially, was being asked by billionaire CEO Asher Landseer to become an egg donor and surrogate for his infertile wife. All Jessika wants to do is help, but is she setting herself up for heartbreak in the process? 
Screwing up on her first day of a one-day job is the last thing Jessika Fevrier wanted to do. Worse yet, she's managed to infuriate Asher Landseer, the young, handsome, reclusive and eccentric billionaire CEO of Landseer Enterprises. His idea of work performance punishment is unorthodox to say the least, but Jessika finds herself intrigued by this singularly unaffected man nonetheless. 
She was only supposed to clean Asher's office, but before she leaves for the day he has another job he'd like to offer her. Revealing that his wife is infertile, Asher asks her to consider becoming an egg donor for his family. He's always wanted children of his own, but the fates have plotted against him, it seems. 
Asher's marriage is of necessity, rough and possibly loveless, but his desire for children is genuine and real. His absoluteness and certainty in himself and his surroundings, despite everything, captivates her. Jessika finds herself charmed by this dominant, enigmatic man who seems to know everything about business and nothing about love. 
Behind the scenes, there's more than the fates plotting against him. Someone has it out for Landseer Enterprises, and they're going to do everything within their power to cause Asher's downfall. Between dealing with Asher's conditions and requirements, the cruel gaze of his spiteful wife, and corporate sabotage, Jessika finds herself lost in a world completely different from the one she's used to. 
Can she rediscover herself and come to terms with her impossible feelings for a man she can't have? Or in her attempts to satisfy His Absolute Need will she inadvertently become the catalyst that leads to his (and her) ruin? 
Dominant, sexy, and powerful. This tantalizing story of love, lust, intrigue and suspense will bind you, entwine you, and thrill you until the very end. 
This book is intended for mature audiences.


At first I thought I was basically reading about a married man and his new found mistress. However, even though it started that way it ended differently.
Jessika, is different, I can't really call her a slut although her actions would TOTALLY justify me in doing so, I can however think of her as a pawn in the bigger picture. A picture that if she wasn't a part of could have ended badly for Asher.
Asher, the billionaire  he's got a dominant side yet he's also very kind hearted and loving. He truly doesn't see what's right in front of him until Jessika comes in. 
This story is erotic but the BDSM side is very mild.
The story line is a tried and true one. Wife wants to take husband for all he's worth. Seeks help from her lover......Only this one has a happy ending and tons of sex...LOL
The characters are fun and really well defined. I personally feel in love with Jeremy and he was just a side character.
I really enjoyed reading this and I look forward to more from Cerys Du Lys.

Author Bio:
Cerys has charted on numerous best sellers and hot new release lists internationally with multiple books.
 She lives in the Greater Boston area in a small town in New Hampshire. She spends her days writing, reading, learning, and working. And maybe sometimes she flirts with the mailman. Some of her most favorite activities involve understanding and learning about emotions and relationships.
 She adores pondering sexuality and sensualness. Most of her writing delves into this in some way, exploring reactions and relationships between different people. While she enjoys writing erotica and erotic romance, her goal is to also keep a certain literary appeal to the writing instead of something purely pornographic. Every story she writes has a delightful plot along with the more devious and delicious scenes we all want to read.
 She prefers romance settings, with the occasional monster or fairytale. Her secret kinks include reluctance, interesting paranormal creatures, romance(even with monsters), and fun. She loves writing about all of these things, though very strongly acknowledges that fantasies are fiction and nothing more.

  1. Thanks very much for checking out my book and reviewing it! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    Lots of people have commented on Jeremy and how much they like him. To be honest, I do like him, too, but I didn't think he'd be that well received, lol.

    I'm considering writing a few shorter stories/novelettes involving Jeremy as one of the "main" characters (and his potential love life?). They might be a bit more on the fun side as side stories, though. Something to keep an eye out for if you're interested!

    Thanks again for taking a chance on my book =)
