*GUEST POST WITH CORA*
THE COWGIRL ROPES A BILLIONAIRE BY CORA SETON
Series: Chance Creek, #4
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 5, 2013
Bella Chatham will lose everything – her veterinary practice, her animal shelter, and even her home – if she can’t find another source of income, fast. So when her best friend signs her up for the hot new reality television show, Can You Beat a Billionaire, Bella accepts the challenge and hopes against hope she can win the ten million dollar prize. If she doesn’t, it’s bye-bye pet clinic and shelter, bye-bye Chance Creek, Montana, and hello to marriage to the billionaire for a year!
Evan Mortimer, billionaire, can’t believe he’s reduced to competing in a television contest to win a wife. Unfortunately, it’s the only foolproof way to secure his position as head of Mortimer Innovations. At least he’ll be able to dump his “spouse” at the end of the year. He has no intention of getting hitched for life.
Bella doesn’t expect her adversary to be handsome – or funny, or compassionate – but Evan’s all three, and he’s proving a tough competitor, too. When they end up sharing a tent and a sleeping-bag – her body betrays her with a longing so deep it cuts her to the core. Still, this cowgirl must stay strong. If Evan uncovers her secret fears, he’ll use them to win the contest – and then he’ll own her for a year. She’ll be out of luck, out of cash, and stuck being Mrs. Mortimer until he kicks her to the curb. Too bad she can’t decide which is worse – winning the show and losing Evan forever, or losing the show and only being his temporary wife.
Evan can’t believe he’s falling for the one woman who doesn’t want him. This cowgirl’s not impressed by his money, his name, or his inability to sleep in a tent with her for an entire night, but every look and touch she gives him sends his desire through the roof. With a director determined to use his claustrophobia to make him look like a fool, and an adversary so sexy he can hardly see straight, he’ll need all his savvy to come out on top. Too bad he’s going to lose no matter how this show turns out. If he beats Bella, he’ll destroy the first woman he’s ever loved. If he doesn’t beat her, it’s bye-bye Mortimer Innovations.
Will either of them remember in time that it’s not who wins or who loses – it’s how they play the game that really counts?

How NOT to Win a Reality Television Show
Cora Seton: I’m here today to interview the latest contestants on TV’s hottest new reality television series, Can You Beat a Billionaire—Evan Mortimer, billionaire CEO of Mortimer Innovations, and Bella Chatham, Owner of the Chance Creek Pet Clinic and Shelter. Evan, Bella, we asked you here today to give our readers some tips. What should they avoid doing if they want to win a reality television show like Can You Beat a Billionaire?
Evan Mortimer: You definitely picked the right people for your interview, Cora. Bella and I know more than our fair share about how to screw up on reality television.
Bella Chatham: You more so than me, of course.
Evan Mortimer: Not sure I’d agree with that assessment.
Cora Seton: Evan, tell me one thing to avoid if our readers actually want to win.
Evan Mortimer: Tell your readers to check their pride at the door. Reality TV is different than real life. You have to act differently if you want to win.
Cora Seton: Can you give me an example?
Evan Mortimer: Definitely. As CEO of a large corporation, one of my strengths is imparting knowledge to my employees quickly and effectively. Our very first contest on the show involved shooting a bow and arrow. I’m an expert at the sport. Bella, here…isn’t.
Bella Chatham: I suck at it.
Evan Mortimer: As usual, when I see someone struggling, I filled her in on how to improve.
Bella Chatham: He bossed me around.
Evan Mortimer: I helped you.
Bella Chatham: Bossed.
Evan Mortimer: Anyway…Bella ended up scoring three points out of five. I should have kept my mouth shut.
Cora Seton: Bella, any advice you want to add?
Bella Chatham: Don’t sleep with your opponent.
Evan Mortimer: Oh, yeah. That’s a good one, too. That’s what I meant to say.
