More About the Author

New York Times bestseller and USAToday bestselling author of nearly 40 novels in romance and women's fiction, a five-time RITA finalist and Romantic Times BOOKReviews Career Achievement Award winner, Texas romance author Jean Brashear knows a lot about taking crazy chances. A lifelong avid reader, at the age of forty-five with no experience and no training, she decided to see if she could write a book. It was a wild leap that turned her whole life upside down, but she would tell you that though she's never been more terrified, she's never felt more exhilarated or more alive. She's an ardent proponent of not putting off your dreams until that elusive 'someday'--take that leap now.

If you like the stories and families of Nora Roberts, Barbara Freethy, Bella Andre and Robyn Carr, you'll want to try the vivid characters and engaging families of the stories of Jean Brashear.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The cherry red '56 T'bird causes Lexie Grayson to hit the breaks on a blind spot on a deserted country road. She offers her mechanical skills to a skeptic, dazzling him with her knowledge of cars. Two hours of repair turn Lexie and Nikos hot, sweaty and dirty. Both thoroughly enjoyed it, and were reluctant to bring the magical afternoon to an end. So they spend the night together, loosing themselves in an extraordinarily magical night that touches their souls. But in the morning light, Nikos has a business to save, and quietly leaves only a note.
Lexie has a design business that leads to her millionaire Dominic Santorini's domain. She's shocked when Dominic turns out to be none other than her Nikos of the cherry red T-bird. He's also the man that she believes stole her best friend's video design. Little does Lexie realize that she's likewise suspect. Someone has been committing industrial espionage, and her access to and questions regarding Poseidon Production's latest video game make her look guilty.
Nikos can't stop thinking about the tomboy turned temptress. He doesn't want to believe that the magical sprite has to disappear in the clear light of day. As the tension escalates between them, he longs for the magic of their night together. But a storm's coming that threatens to either wash away all the feelings of anger and betrayal in its power of healing, or to destroy everything.
Jean Brashear creates a marvelous love story in MILLIONAIRE IN DISGUISE. Lexie's design business and inventive methods result in a background of illusion that lends a magical theme to the entire novel. Further, Lexie fears men leaving, and Nikos fears being loved only for his money, creating a conflict that underlies the novel, forcing questions of betrayal and faith. Further, the overlaying sensuality heightens the tension and lends yet another layer of magic. Very highly recommended.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lexie Grayson stopped her pickup truck to help out Nikos Santorini with his T-bird and they had a lotta fun that afternoon, talking about cars. And they had more fun when they got to her place and Nikos spent a night. But all was not well when they woke up because Nikos was the formiddable boss of this big company. Lexie believed that Nikos stole her best-friend's creation and Nikos believed that Lexie was spying on his company for an enemy. They can't avoid each other because they have to work together and it's hard to work together because when they're together, the sparks begin to sizzle and things start to happen to them.
I think MILLIONAIRE IN DISGUISE is really good because of Lexie. Lexie is full on contradictions and you could see that Lexie and Nikos is good for each other. Lexie is like a breath of fresh air for Nikos and Nikos is the strong man that for Lexie.
One thing I would like to see take place is a conclusion for Nikos' sister Ariana. In MILLIONAIRE IN DISGUISE, Ariana is a weak but interesting character. She was held captive by Nikos' enemy and she's escaped but she's described as *the ghost of her former self* and I would like to see the author create a story for Ariana, where she finds herself again.

Millionaire in disguise starts off with a car mishap. When Lexie Grayson helped a man with a car problem on a deserted road, she didn’t count on ending up in bed with a hot millionaire. Dominic Satorini is enchanted with Lexie but sceptical of women in general. He’s used to women after his money so he told Lexie his name is Nikos. After a night of passion, Dominic quietly slips away but not before leaving her a note. Lexie thought that was the end of that until she meets Mr. Hot shot millionaire Dominic Satorini—AKA Nikos, the guy with the T-Bird mobile she helped fix. Can lightning strike more than once for these couple?
This is probably one of my best romance read for the month. It’s a good book with well developed characters. Lexie has a successful design business. She’s a woman who’s sexy, accomplished and a tomboy with mad car mechanic skills to boot. I would understand why and how Dominic would get attracted to her. Her mix of confidence and vulnerability is well blended in her character.
The whole book is an exciting read. It made me want to skip pages just to get to the ending faster. If you’re into romance with a strong lead male character and plenty of bedroom scenes, you might want to read Sandra Ross’ Dark Knight in Disguised II: Earth Bound Angels 1 on the side.
Would I recommend this book? Definitely! It’s a book with plenty of toe- curl moments.
