The Billionaire Learn His Lesson


Luke Ashford was born and raised to be the next CEO of the largest nanotech firm in the world. He’s a demanding, uncompromising workaholic whose only goal is to live up to his father’s expectations.


It’s all he’s ever wanted… and finally within his reach.


If only his father would retire.


Instead, Luke is tasked with handling his father’s latest charitable endeavor, sponsoring a local elementary school. It’s a complete waste of Luke’s precious time until he lays eyes on Penny Pierce, a third-grade teacher who captivates him before he can even say hello.


Penny is generous, playful, and drawn to this tall, dark, handsome stranger who has appeared in her classroom, pinning her with his midnight eyes and brooding stare.


When Luke agrees to personally mentor two-third graders for the science fair, little does he know how much he stands to gain.


Will Penny break through his tough exterior and find her perfect match where she least expects it?


Will Luke learn his father’s real lesson and earn the love of the woman he craves?


You’ll love this steamy, modern-day Windy City Match because who can resist an uncompromising billionaire tempted by a carefree teacher who threatens to refocus his heart.

Hi, there. Ellen here. So glad you found me! I’m a classically trained pastry chef who now spends my days whipping up steamy and satisfying modern day love stories.

When I’m not writing happily ever afters, you'll find me absorbed in a novel, relaxing into śavāsana, or downing a caffè americano. Oh, and belting out the lyrics to Hamilton.

I live in the desert southwest where I still occasionally bake a batch of cookies for my real-life hero and two girls.
