An intensely sexy Billionaire Fairy Tales standalone romance by Jackie Ashenden where a billionaire, bad boy Prince Charming meets the woman who will rock his world.
Xavier De Santis: Charming. Disgraced. Playboy.
The headlines are always shouting about the excesses of the so-called Prince Charming of the De Santis family. Problem is, Xavier is everything they say he is.
But now he’s gone too far, and he has has been ordered to clean up his image. Volunteering at a homeless shelter, Xavier sees a bright light amidst all the bleakness. An angel whose luminous face and tragic beauty call to him in ways he can’t explain.
Mia: Homeless. Vulnerable. Virgin.
When the shelter Mia calls home closes, she is left with nowhere to go. Nowhere except the luxurious, glorious palace of a home where Xavier De Santis has invited her to stay. This too-handsome billionaire is dark, dangerous…and also too good to be true.
Surely Mia can indulge in her fantasies and escape the hardness of her daily life for just one night?
As one night turns into two, Mia knows that eventually, the magic will end. She can't keep the beautiful clothes. She can't keep the soft bed. And most of all, she can't keep the hard, handsome man who makes her crave his touch with every breath she takes.
Mia doesn't belong in his world. But as Xavier tempts his rags-to-riches heroine with exquisite pleasure and heady desire, Mia may have no choice but to surrender to him completely.
Jackie Ashenden’s novels have been described as “Dark, explosive, and gritty, with a splash of dominance.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review on In Bed with the Billionaire) and The Billionaire’s Virgin delivers even more of that delicious combination.

The Billionaire’s Virgin
A different take on a billionaire story! I enjoyed reading this book, but was left feeling like there was some depth missing. I could relate to the characters, and liked them getting together, but I felt like we could have gotten more in touch with them had their stories been told in a different way. Like instead of having them talk to themselves in their head all the time about their scars from their past, actually dig into it a bit more. Instead of his money handing her the papers she wants about her past, actually have had them embark on the search for answers, etc.
Xavier De Santis is a fun-loving billionaire playboy who has just gotten away with this last exploit in his father's eyes! Ordered to clean up his act or else, he steps up to volunteer at the homeless shelter his dad sends him to. He hates the mundane repetitiveness of serving the hopeless and downtrodden, but one night someone catches his eye. She will barely look at him and has no reaction what-so-ever to his smile ... but she intrigues him!
Mia has been on the streets long enough to know that no one is ever what they seem, so she keeps her head down and minds her own business. She doesn't want the attention that Xavier seems to want to give her, but one night when they run into each other outside the shelter to find it's closed, she has to fight back her fear and pride to accept his offer of a place to stay for the night. When one night turns into two, and two into three, neither one can ignore the attraction and draw they feel for each other. Will he be able to get her to let her guard down enough to let him into her life?
Review: Billionaire Fairytales 1: The Billionaire's Virgin
The Billionaire's Virgin by Jackie Ashenden is the first book in her new Billionaire Fairytales series. It is a standalone, sexy romance told in dual POV between Mia, the homeless woman and Xavier the billionaire that yanks her off the streets.
The storyline was very fairytale like in the way it played out. Tortured young woman, living on the streets for years catches the eye and eventually the heart and soul of the rich billionaire playboy. It was well-written and well-paced. I felt there could have been ore about Mia's past and locating the documents but the story stay away from too many unpleasant facts, seeming to talk about them in he abstract and keep the reader distanced from the ugliness of Mia's childhood and Xavier's loss.
The sexy times were warm to hot, but mostly the story was sweet and has a happy ending. Enjoy!
Deliciously dark and intense this is a great story of a bad boy billionaire taken by a homeless beauty. A woman that touches his heart in a way no one ever has. When the shelter she calls home closes and she has nowhere to go but the streets, Xavier DeSantis can't let that happen. He takes her into his home. Mia knows this is too good to be true. All good things end for her so why would this last. As he fills her heart and soul with passion and desire, Mia knows she won't walk away from this whole.
I recommend this one.
