Book Description

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author!

Book 1: Maid for the Billionaire

Dominic Corisi knew instantly that Abigail Dartley was just the distraction he was looking for, especially since having her took a bit more persuading than he was used to. So when business forces him to fly to China, he decides to take her with him, but on his terms. No promises. No complications. Just sex.

Abby has always been the responsible one. She doesn’t believe in taking risks; especially when it comes to men - until she meets Dominic. He’s both infuriating and intoxicating, a heady combination. Their trip to China revives a long forgotten side of Abby, but also reveals a threat to bring down Dominic’s company. With no time to explain her actions, Abby must either influence the outcome of his latest venture and save his company or accept her role as his mistress and leave his fate to chance. Does she love him enough to risk losing him for good?

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Looking forward to the collection! June 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Out of all the books that I have downloaded to my Kindle this is the first review I've ever made simply because this book was a page turner I could NOT put down. I started reading this morning and just finished. One of the best romance books I have read in a LONG time! AND it was FREE!
When I first started the book I was a little irritated at the way the lettering was showing up on my Kindle (format) and was thinking that this would typically be another romance book where I knew exactly what would happen. HECK NO! I absolutely loved the fact that there was a creative twist thrown in that I wasn't expecting. Although we all knew that they'd end up together, it kept me guessing how.
I am extremely excited to read the rest of the collection and I will literally be checking every day to see if a new one is out!
Way to go Ruth Cardello! I am looking forward to more of your books to add to my Kindle! :) KEEP 'em coming!!! (Please and Thank You!)

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Read! July 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Maid for the Billionaire was an excellent read! Fun, funny, and a few surprises. I even laughed out loud a few times. My only disappointment - when I got to the end, I was ready to buy the next book...but it wasn't available yet. But I'm looking forward to it. Hats off to the author!

5.0 out of 5 stars great book June 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Can't wait for the next one! The story was fast paced and funny and not nearly as predictable as I expected it to be. There was a great character setup and by the end of the book I'd fallen for all of the characters and I can't wait to discover the rest of their stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Was A Great Read May 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I am very hard on authors but I really really liked this book, I had wished it was even longer. The story keeps your attention keeps you interested and you are always wondering what's next. I still don't like men that are rich and have to have their own way and are pushy but in this case it worked. Enjoy. Althought the cost is worthwhile on Amazon I got it free on another website.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did I read the same book?? July 10, 2011
By tag_66
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't understand all of these amazing reviews on this book. I thought it was flat out awful, but I trudged through the whole thing due to all of the great reviews it had, just hoping and thinking that is HAD to get better. It didn't. I really don't like tearing books apart and normally just skip doing a review if I didn't enjoy it (I know I could never write a cohesive story myself and try to give authors their due credit for doing so), but this was so far fetched and unrealistic and there are SO MANY raving reviews that I just had to write a warning to other serial romance readers.

First off, I did expect some cheesy factor - if you read the description, then you knew the premise of the story and that it would have some fantasy/unrealistic factors. However, I did not expect the entire book to have just one after another after another, instead of creating a believable plotline after the extraordinariness of their initial meeting.

***Spoiler Alert - skip this para if you don't want to know details*** Discounting their cliche meeting (since it was in the title of the book), she a) left with him to go to another country after knowing him for ONE DAY, b) he apparently has enough $$ to get her a passport within TWO HOURS as she has never left the country before (making the one day trip even more believable), c)she just HAPPENS to speak the language of the country they are going to (ok, at least a reason was given for this even if unlikely) and d)he offers to donate 10 PERCENT of company profits to charity just like that? No looking at numbers, financing dept, etc necessary? The US average is 3% and a big deal is made over companies that do 5%, so 10% is a HUGE amount. And those are just a few examples.

By Sharon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I truly enjoyed Maid for the Billionaire! I especially enjoyed how Abby and Dominic relationships starts. From the begin you can tell Abby is the person who alway takes care of everyone. Dominic is always the one who gets his way. It was great to see how the two character interacted! They both have there strong personalities. I know while the story unfold I was hoping they would find there way to each other in the end! If you looking for a enjoy romance it would be a must read!

More About the Author

Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New York--then came full circle and moved back to Rhode Island. She now happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her, family trumped the warmer weather and international scene.

She was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher. When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she's not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm, riding her horses, or connecting with her readers online.

Her first book in her newest series, Come Away With Me (The Andrades) is available now!
