Tour Kick Off - Meet and Greet - The Billionaire's Ultimatum by Cerys du Lys

BDSM Erotic Romance
Date Published: 6/22/2013

Falling in love wasn't part of Jessika's temporary job description. Nor, initially, was being asked by billionaire CEO Asher Landseer to become an egg donor and surrogate for his infertile wife. All Jessika wants to do is help, but is she setting herself up for heartbreak in the process? 
Screwing up on her first day of a one-day job is the last thing Jessika Fevrier wanted to do. Worse yet, she's managed to infuriate Asher Landseer, the young, handsome, reclusive and eccentric billionaire CEO of Landseer Enterprises. His idea of work performance punishment is unorthodox to say the least, but Jessika finds herself intrigued by this singularly unaffected man nonetheless. 
She was only supposed to clean Asher's office, but before she leaves for the day he has another job he'd like to offer her. Revealing that his wife is infertile, Asher asks her to consider becoming an egg donor for his family. He's always wanted children of his own, but the fates have plotted against him, it seems. 
Asher's marriage is of necessity, rough and possibly loveless, but his desire for children is genuine and real. His absoluteness and certainty in himself and his surroundings, despite everything, captivates her. Jessika finds herself charmed by this dominant, enigmatic man who seems to know everything about business and nothing about love. 
Behind the scenes, there's more than the fates plotting against him. Someone has it out for Landseer Enterprises, and they're going to do everything within their power to cause Asher's downfall. Between dealing with Asher's conditions and requirements, the cruel gaze of his spiteful wife, and corporate sabotage, Jessika finds herself lost in a world completely different from the one she's used to. 
Can she rediscover herself and come to terms with her impossible feelings for a man she can't have? Or in her attempts to satisfy His Absolute Need will she inadvertently become the catalyst that leads to his (and her) ruin? 
Dominant, sexy, and powerful. This tantalizing story of love, lust, intrigue and suspense will bind you, entwine you, and thrill you until the very end. 
This book is intended for mature audiences.

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Yes.  My books are actually my main source of income at the moment, though I do have a side job I do for fun once a week, too.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

The hardest part for me is always my editing.  I'm sort of a perfectionist, so I had to train myself to just stop after a certain amount of time, or else I'd probably keep working on the same thing over and over and over again(maybe not that bad, but...).  Saying that, I still edit everything I write at least two times.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

My best friend, Jessie, is probably the person who's helped me out the most for everything ever(but writing especially).

#4 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

I love to read!  I don't read as much as some people, but I can usually get through about three books a month(plus I read all of my own stuff, but I don't know if that counts?  I enjoy it, still).  Currently, I was reading Fifty Shades Freed, but I just finished it and am feeling bereft because there aren't any more Ana/Christian stories, so I'm taking a small break.  I have no idea what I'm going to read next yet.

Princess Miri is a bitch and the heir to the throne and she might have accidentally fallen in love with a monster.

This or That?

#1 - iPd or Mp3?

MP3?  But I don't actually own any, haha.

#2 – Chocolate or Vanilla?

Probably chocolate.  Preferably dark chocolate, but I guess it depends what it is.

#3 – Mashed Potatoes or French Fries?

Mashed potatoes, definitely.

#4 – Comedy or Drama?

Ugh... comedy, I think.  This one is rough.

#5 – Danielle Steel or Nicholas Sparks?

Oddly, I've never read anything by Danielle Steel, so I'll go with Nicholas Sparks.

#6 – Fantasy or Reality?

Fantasy!  I think it's more fun.

#7 – Call or Text?

Texting is really fast, easy, and convenient, so I'll go with that one.

#8 – Public School or Home School?

Personally, I attended public school, but I'm a huge proponent for home schooling.  I think it's something that every parent should seriously consider, but I understand how difficult it can be.

#9 – Coffee or Hot Chocolate

Coffee, definitely.  A good dark roast one.

#10 – eBook or Paperback?

Almost all of my books are eBooks, and I love the freedom it gives you, but most of my books are paperbacks right now and I keep buying the things even though I have a Nook(I always forget about it), so I'll go with paperback.

Cerys has charted on numerous best sellers and hot new release lists internationally with multiple books.
 She lives in the Greater Boston area in a small town in New Hampshire. She spends her days writing, reading, learning, and working. And maybe sometimes she flirts with the mailman. Some of her most favorite activities involve understanding and learning about emotions and relationships.
 She adores pondering sexuality and sensualness. Most of her writing delves into this in some way, exploring reactions and relationships between different people. While she enjoys writing erotica and erotic romance, her goal is to also keep a certain literary appeal to the writing instead of something purely pornographic. Every story she writes has a delightful plot along with the more devious and delicious scenes we all want to read.
 She prefers romance settings, with the occasional monster or fairytale. Her secret kinks include reluctance, interesting paranormal creatures, romance(even with monsters), and fun. She loves writing about all of these things, though very strongly acknowledges that fantasies are fiction and nothing more.
