Blog Tour: The Millionaire Daddy Project (A Men of the Zodiac Novel) by Roxanne Snopek


By Roxanne Snopek 
A Men of the Zodiac Novel 

Sign: Leo
He takes control...and gives all kinds of pleasure

In the space of about a second, successful restaurateur Dane Bergman has gone from millionaire playboy to daddy. Now he's the sole guardian of a very adorable and willful four-year-old child, and he's counting on his executive assistant, Pamela Atwater, to save his ass. Even if it means bringing her along on a month-long ocean-side retreat...

Pamela Atwater prides herself on being the perfect assistant. Whatever Dane wants or needs, she's there - pretending to ignore Dane's golden charm and drop-dead gorgeousness. On vacation, however, Pamela sees a side of Dane she never imagined. And it's a side that tempts her to cross the line between professional and personal. But is one month enough time to prove to Dane that his perfect assistant might just be his perfect match?


Dane Bergman is a man used to being in control. A businessman and millionaire, he finds himself unexpectedly out of his depth when he learns that he has a four year old daughter whose mother has just died. Throwing himself head first into fatherhood, Dane has no clue what he is doing or where to even begin. Especially since his daughter, Dani, seems to hate him.

Pamela Atwater, Dane's assistant, is the one who Dane relies on the most. With this delicate situation, Pamela is the only one who he can trust with his daughter. As Pamela bonds with Dani and Dane sees the two of them together, he can't help but begin to see his assistant in a different light.

As both Pamela and Dane become attracted to one another and enjoy the family situation they have created will they be able to go their separate ways and put their minds back to business after a month of just the three of them together? 

Roxanne Snopek draws you in with her writing in the latest installment in the Men of the Zodiac. Snopek's characters are realistic and down to earth, despite the fact that one is a millionaire. I love the way that Dane knows from the start even before he meets Dani that she is meant to be with him and tries his hardest to be her father even though she is trying her hardest to push him away. I truly felt for both Dani and Dane in this complicated situation. They were both thrust into a whole other world and had to get used to it and each other. Pamela surely helped with their bonding and I really liked her kind heart and caring nature. Pamela and Dane just fit with one another and Pamela was the perfect fit for both Dane and Dani as a family unit. 

The Millionaire Daddy Project has everything you could want in a book: a cute kid, a millionaire hottie business man who WANTS to be the cute kid's dad no matter what or how long it takes, family and romance. I could not put this book down and read it in one sitting.


Pamela could barely breathe. Was this really happening? Or was it a dream?

But the solidness of Dane, the weight of him behind her in the bed told her it was very, vividly real.

“I should check on Dani,” she said, wanting more than anything else in the universe to stay exactly where she was.

“Listen,” he said. “She’s fine. The door’s closed.”

From the kitchen, she could hear Dani’s voice singing along with her beloved characters. Laughing, even.

Beneath the covers, he slid a hand up, then down her body.

“Do you want to go,” he whispered against her neck, his breath sending rivulets of desire quivering over her skin, “or do you want to stay?”

When she’d gone to bed, she’d had a robe on and a child in her arms. Now, she could feel her robe bunched up somewhere by her knees, the child was making happy noises in the other room and big hot hands were touching her in places that desperately wanted to be touched.

Even her dreams weren’t this good.

Her body was moving in time with his hand and she was breathing way too quickly.

She should stop him; she knew she should.

She reached back and found his erection.

He groaned. “So you’ve decided then?”

He throbbed in her hand and she rubbed her thumb over the slick tip.

His finger dipped inside her again and she gasped.

“Decided what?”

He reached to the bedside table and she heard the crinkling sound of a condom wrapper. She arched her back and pressed against him, angling herself until she felt him pulsating at the back of her thighs so close, but not close enough.

“Decided,” he said in a ragged voice, “if we’re having sex or not.”

She pushed herself onto him and he was inside her, filling her, trembling against her as if holding himself back.

But she spread her legs wider to accommodate him and his clever, clever hand that hadn’t stopped working her, not for a second.

Maybe she wasn’t awake after all, she thought, as the waves rose, and her legs bucked against the sheets.

“Can I,” she gasped, grabbing his hip and pulling him into her, harder, faster, “get back to you?”

She cried out as her climax began and she flailed for a pillow to put over her face. This was too good to be silent, this was a screamer, a shout-it-from-the-rooftops, barn-burner kind of orgasm, and just when she thought it couldn’t get better, Dane’s hands moved to her hips, grasping her, pulling her back and forth, extending her pleasure with his crescendo.

Finally they fell back on the sheets, both breathing hard, both trembling.

The room came back into focus. Pamela elbowed herself around to look at Dane for the first time

“I guess,” she said, meeting his eyes and seeing in them the same shock she felt herself, “that would be a yes.”


 Stories by Roxanne Snopek are a bit like her life: dramatic, emotional and messy, with dogs, cats and other critters usually underfoot. She believes that the best heroes are cowboys under the surface, even if they deny it. She lives in beautiful British Columbia with her hero of 25 years and whatever kids and pets happen to be around.
