*BLOG TOUR* Monica Murphy's TORN - EXCLUSIVE GUEST POST +GIVEAWAY




Welcome to the Blog Tour celebrating the wonderful and fabulous Monica Murphy and TORN, the second novel featuring the billionaire bachelors! I have Monica here for a guest post today plus an awesome giveaway! Unfortunately, I've been down with the flu for over a week and didn't get the chance to finish Gage and Marina's tale just yet...but I'll be back soon with a review.

But for now...



Torn
by Monica Murphy
Publication Date: November 19th, 2013
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy mixes business with pleasure in the second book of her sexy Billionaire Bachelors Club series …

Marina Knight came to this party for one thing only: to slap Gage Emerson in the face. Poised to snatch up her family's real estate empire, the sexy tycoon is on the verge of making an enemy for life—even if he can make her melt with a single kiss …

When Gage discovers that the alluring woman before him is the key to his latest acquisition, claiming her as his suddenly doesn't seem quite so cut-and-dried. To get what he wants, he must get to know the fierce woman willing to face him down—as she steadily steals his heart.

Gage's persistence and intense passion war with Marina's determination to protect her family. As they delve deeper into an affair they didn't see coming, Marina's torn: Will she lose her heart to Gage—or everything she holds dear?


And now....here's Monica to talk about the appeal of these sexy Billionaires:
Billionaire Bachelors: What’s the Appeal?


Archer, Gage and Matt…three best friends who all happen to be extremely, filthy rich. Oh, and they’re also bachelors. Well, that’s not true since Archer’s down for the count. And you can figure out that Gage is gonna fall and eventually, so is Matt. So this club isn’t going to last very long, is it?

I really loved creating the men that form my Billionaire Bachelors Club. They’re gorgeous, sexy and rich. Disgustingly rich. This means, they can have pretty much whatever and whoever they want. They can go wherever they want. They grew up wealthy, most things came easily to them but they are also men who work hard. Men who always want more, more, more.

They’re not spoiled brats—though they might be described that way when it comes to women. Women flocked to them. I mean, why wouldn’t they? These guys are the ultimate catch and they know it! So this makes them a little cocky, a lot flirtatious, and extremely sure of themselves.

Overly sure of themselves.

That’s why it was such a joy to write each of their stories and have them fall—hard—for women who don’t reciprocate at first. These women will do everything they can to avoid them. In CRAVE, Ivy wanted nothing to do with Archer because she grew up with him and knew all his tricks. He was bad. Sexy and bad and tempting and yeah. She knew she needed to resist him.

In TORN Gage puts Marina off from the start. She thinks he wants something from her, and he does, so she wants nothing to do with him. She’s wary of his motives. And also insanely attracted to him, which drives her nuts. Then there’s Bryn, Matt’s heroine in SAVOR. She has her own secrets. The last thing she wants is the attention of her boss, no matter how much he tries to give it to her. But that’s all I can say about those two since their book isn’t out yet…

Do you see where I’m going with this? These are three men who could have pretty much whatever they wanted their entire lives. Until they meet the women that turn their lives completely upside down. The women are a challenge, and a challenge is something they don’t typically have to deal with.

That’s where I had the most fun. Giving Archer, Gage and Matt a challenge. Making them have to actually work and earn Ivy’s, Marina’s and Bryn’s trust. It makes them getting the girl in the end that much sweeter. And it had nothing to do with money and influence and power…they simply needed to prove to the women that they were worthy of love.
