Mallory Crowe
Trusting the Boss (Billionaires in the City #4)



Billionaire heiress Emma Devaroux has been living a safe-yet-mundane existence in Georgia for too long, but when she learns her sister, Joslyn, has been arrested, she heads to New York City to find out what really happened. Unfortunately, as an unemployed debutante, she’s not exactly qualified to be leading an investigation. But help is at hand in the form of the handsome, former military man Jace Lance who happens to be the one who got her sister arrested in the first place. 

Jace thinks Emma is crazy for even considering working with him since he’s the one who stopped Joslyn from killing his former client. However, he can’t deny that the sexy southerner is in over her head when her tycoon cousins try to hire him to make sure Emma doesn’t find out the truth about what really caused her sister’s murderous actions. 

As they begin to uncover the truth together –and get to know each other intimately – it becomes clear that the more answers they get, the more danger Emma is in. Jace is determined to protect her, but how can he keep her safe when her whole family is in on the conspiracy?

“Are you okay?”
Another shiver racked through her. “No. I’m cold and pissed.”
Her Southern accent was more noticeable in her anger and he cracked a small smile. “You have seaweed in your hair.” He plucked it out and tossed it back into the black water.
Emma set her hands on his chest and pushed up. “Do you have any idea how much seaweed was down there? It was disgusting! I thought it was going to grab me and pull me down.”
Jace had swum through his fair share of seaweed-infested water and he knew exactly how disconcerting it could be. But he couldn’t stop himself from giving her a hard time. “Come on. You’re not saying a little old plant scared you?”
She gave him a playful punch to his chest. “You’re such a show-off. I can’t believe that you made it all the way out there without an issue and I took two steps and fell in.” She glanced to her left and rolled her eyes. “Not even your phone fell in after all that!”
Jace let out a laugh and caught her wrist as she went in for another blow. “Hey, I’m not going to apologize for being good at what I do. I walked on the edge closer to the support. You ran out right onto the weakest part of the planks.”

Emma stared down at him and in a flash, the joking air was gone, replaced by something decidedly hotter than the ocean water that now soaked through their clothes. “I guess I hired the best,” she said softly.

About the Author:
Mallory Crowe has lived in Michigan her whole life and has been in love with romance ever since she’d skip to the end of every novel, just to make sure the hero and heroine survived and ended up together. She lives with her husband and three dogs. When she’s not writing, she’s spending too much time in front of the TV, hiking, or working with various animal rescues.


Tell us about your first book. What would readers find different about the first one and your most recent published work?
My first published book is Book One in the Billionaires In The City series. I’d say the biggest difference would be that with each manuscript I write, I have (unintentionally) ramped up the suspense. I love a very strong external conflict and nothing is sexier than a protective guy, so the danger  aspect of the books have increased with each new one. I don’t think I’d call TRUSTING full on romantic suspense, but there is an element of danger added for sure.

How did you come up with the idea for this story?
Well this was a character built story. Jace was a small side character in TEMPTING THE BOSS and I liked the idea of giving this badass guy more to do and I needed a woman who could handle him, but also was in need of his skills in some way. So in creating a heroine for him, I ended up creating this entire family that the next four books are going to be based around. 

Tell us something that people would be surprised you know how to do.
Well before I started writing, I was a licensed CPA and passed all sections of the exam in one try and I don’t think most people expect accounting and romance author to go together in one person. I’ve met so many fellow romance writers who have the most interesting backgrounds or former day jobs. It’s fascinating when you realize that creativity isn’t only limited to certain types of people.
