With more than 7 million copies of her books in print, USA Today bestseller Lucy Monroe has published more than 70 books and had her stories translated for sale in dozens of countries. While she writes several subgenres of romance (paranormal, historical, single title and short contemporary) for multiple publishers, all of her books are sexy, emotional and show that love will conquer all. She's a passionate devotee of romance and shares her love for the genre with her readers through her books and a policy of open communication.






Sicilian business tycoon Carlo Messina is used to getting his way, so when his supposedly biddable fiancée leaves him standing at the altar he's shocked...and furious.

Annette has spent her entire life trying to be worthy of her family's love, but she's never measured up. Her parents and two perfect sisters make up their own little family and she has no place in it, unless it's as a modern day Cinderella. When she realizes her gorgeous billionaire fiancé expects her to change to fit his idea of family too, she does the only thing she can. She runs.

It's five years later and Carlo and Annette are living in the same house in charge of their niece while their siblings recover from a terrible accident. The desire between these two passionate people has only grown during their time apart and inevitably, it explodes. Results? An unexpected pregnancy.

For Carlo there's only one solution: the wedding that never took place. Can a marriage of convenience lead to the love Annette craves and her Sicilian billionaire doesn't know he needs?

Prince Tor isn’t like the rest of his family. He’s spending his military service in combat for one. A law unto himself, he doesn’t follow the usual rules and has no desire to give into his father’s pressure to marry and settle down with a suitable woman.

Tor wants Blythe and he’s not letting her hide behind the age difference, or his status as a royal. Once the passion detonates between them, is there any hope they can build something lasting despite how different their worlds are?

After the Billionaire’s Wedding Vows

Kindle Edition



“Why don’t you call me Andros anymore?”

“Andros was the man I fell in love with.”

“And who is Alexandros?”

“The man I married.”


Pollyanna fell in love and married Greek billionaire Alexandros Kristalakis.  Little did she know that loving Alexandros would come with a price…one that will leave her feeling out of place and always coming in second to his family and his business.  Five years after saying “I do”, Polly has accepted her lot in life, and clings to the early memories of their romance.  Her beloved Andros is no more, and in his place is the powerful head of the Kristalakis Family.  How can she possibly compete?

Alexandros Kristalakis loves his wife more than anything, so when he overhears an offhanded comment about him not considering Polly’s feelings, he is struck with the truth that perhaps he has taken his beautiful bride for granted.  Carefully, he begins observing how his manipulative mother treats his bride as well as how his sister is constantly criticizing her.  Alexandros begins to realize that he’s allowed Polly to feel less than what she is…his beloved wife and mother of his children.  Alexandros is now on a mission to reclaim his love and show Polly that she will always come first in his life…but is it too little too late?

Billionaire troupes are not usually my genre of choice, but there is just something about this story.  Set aside the powerful tycoon and money and get to the heart of the plot…two lovers that took vows to love and cherish each other regardless, and like a lot of relationships, over time, a pattern emerges of going through the motions of how “happy” couples are supposed to behave.  The author reminds us that after the wedding vows are said, it takes work and an open and honest dialogue on behalf of both sides to keep the romance alive.  After the Billionaire’s Wedding Vows is thought provoking and well written, would recommend!
