“I wanted this man’s arms around me, cocooning me in safety. I wanted to feel like I didn’t have to be brave for a few hours. I wanted to let him be my courage. My protection. My shield.”

Cameron Whitbury—billionaire aerospace mogul—can engineer her way out of any problem. Sure, she’s living with the threat of a potential sex scandal thanks to her lying ex. And that a

Here's the thing, y'all.

When Lucy Score, Kathryn Nolan, Pippa Grant, and I set out to write shared world novels with lady billionaire heroines, everyone was like, really? The ladies are the billionaires? But... that's not how it's done.

And we were like, hold our margaritas, babycakes, we've got this.

Actually, I made that up. But it did spring from a conversation that got the four of us squee'ing with excitement over the concept. What if the heroine was the billionaire? And what kind of hero wou

The Mogul and the Muscle is part of the Bluewater Billionaires series by Claire Kingsley. This book!!! From the cover and the teasers I’ve seen, I just knew it was going to be a huge hit for me and it was!!! Have I ever told you I might have a thing for muscley motorcycle riding, alpha possessive heroes? Well I do. And that is our Jude in a nutshell!

Claire Kingsley is the writer of one of my all-times-favorite books: HIS HEART. That's why I always check her new work when she publishes something but the more I read from her, the more I start to think that HIS HEART was a "one-time" thing. She apparently prefers to write books that are too insignificant for me.


This book was really a bad one. Such an empty and shallow book with nothing good in it!

I really wonder why Ms Kingsley has written this book
A strong heroine and a hot hero with barely any drama between them and a decent storyline, Its a good read :)

I want the billions...without all the hard work 😉

It's slightly disappointing for me that the Bluewater Billionaires actually have to work hard for their money. Yes, it's probably realistic and even in The Mogul and the Muscle, we had proof that nothing comes for free. But, wouldn't it be awesome to have the fancy house, car and clothes, without having to slave away for theses extravagances? It also seems that with the billions come targets on your back. The four women we meet are hard-working, d

I so much enjoyed this romance read!!!!! Very intriguing with awesome characters, sparky plot and fantastic pace.
Cameron was a badass aerospace mogul, a woman in a man’s world. Jude Ellis was a marine veteran and former CIA agent, hired as a bodyguard to protect Cameron.
I couldn’t stop reading, the storyline was enchanting, their chemistry explosive and the secondary characters amazing!!!
Such a great story❣️❣️❣️

The second installment in the Bluewater Billionaires series keeps things just as hot as the first one. Not entirely due to being set in Miami but because of the Lady Billionaires and their super hot men.
This book follows Cameron, billionaire CEO of an aerospace company. She's a bit bent because her Billionaire Besties think she needs security after someone tried to mug her in her parking garage. She doesn't agree but gives in because she's tired of them bugging her about it.

I loved this story! The characters, the plot, the dialogue, the cameos!! All of it combined to make a scorching hot romantic mystery comedy, because it’s Claire Kingsley and this boss lady can do whatever she wants!

Jude is my very favorite type of Hero. A former spy with an alpha personality, rippling muscles AND he drives a motorcycle, yes please!! But he’s also highly intelligent, low key funny, ultra protective and just the right amount of dirty in the bedroom.

The Mogul and Muscle is book two of the Bluewater Billionaires series and if you didn't already know, the wealthy moguls featured in these books are LADY BILLIONAIRES. GIRL POWER!
This reads just fine as a stand-alone, but if you haven't read book one, The Price of Scandal (Derek and Emily's book,) you should get on that.

This book tells the story of Cameron Whitbury and Jude Ellis. Cameron is a millionaire aerospace mogul and Jude is former CIA (and other secret things) who is trying to retire bu
What a great book!!! Loved reading it. It’s so exciting!
With each page I tried imagining who the suspect was, had my suspects but never imagined it would be that person.

Cameron was an aerospace company’s CEO and she worked hard for everything in her life. She had three best friends that lived in the same place that they, together, created and was all focused on her work. She had some trust issues, which made her inner circle really small. It all changes when she’s attacked at the parking lot of

I loved this. So, so much!!

Cameron and Jude are the perfect amounts of steam, sweet and snark. Cameron is a kickass CEO who reluctantly accepts that she needs a security detail. Jude is a retired spy/security specialist who reluctantly agrees to take one more job. What follows is a fun and steamy story with some surprising twists.

I could not put this story down and then I was so sad it was over! Cameron is a strong, intelligent heroine. I fell in love with Jude, a huge, protective ex-spy with a

I just love the Bluewater community and all the quirky residents, whether human or of the animal variety.
In Mogul and the Muscle we follow Cameron Whitbury, a self-made billionairess and a global leader in innovation within the aerospace industry. After Cam fights off an attempted mugger, her friends arrange for her to have a body guard. Enter Jude Ellis, retired marine and CIA operative, who is trying to retire in the beautiful Miami but always finds himself with another referral for a security

Holy hotness!!! This book is the kind of steamy hot I expect from a CK book!! I loved the way Cam and Jude fit together. They really are a perfect match.

Cam is truly #fierceaf - she is a self made billionaire, amazing friend, and her taste in shoes is unparalleled!

Jude is a big, hot, protective motorcycle riding hero - how can you not fall for this guy?!? So swoon-worthy!!

I absolutely loved this story!! Super hot romance, suspense, four amazing lady billionaires, Easter eggs, and so much more!

This story was utterly fabulous. I loved everything about this from the beginning to the epic epilogue. It had everything that I love in great romance read. From the sexy muscle to the confident independent woman to the action and suspense it kept me intrigued and flipping those pages faster. I loved the sexual tension and the slow build up, the humor and above all else that swoony alpha male that had me melting. This was just an amazing read you will need to pick up for yourself.

Loved it! Cameron is my shoe soul sister and Jude- SWOOOOOOOON! I love the way these two fell for each other. Love the continuation of the friendship between the Bluewater four. And love the way Claire Kingsley showed that a hero and a heroine can actually end up saving each other!

Loved it.

Jude Ellis...... Tall, tattooed, ex CIA bodyguard (among other things)...I loved this guy! A fitting book name, the Mogul being billionaire Cameron, she was a workaholic and was perfect for Jude . I loved the banter between these two, some steamy moments. I must read more from this author!

Books like The Mogul and the Muscle are why I read romance. Claire Kingsley scored another perfect five stars from me as I loved every page! Although this is a standalone, I highly recommend you read the Price of Scandal, book one of the Bluewater Billionaires series, so that you can get introduced to the four vagillionaires that are BFF: Emily, Cameron, Daisy, and Luna. Each woman is smart, successful, and wealthy which is a nice change from all of the male-dominated billionaire books out there ...more

This was a great story to get lost in during this time of social distancing. It was a nice twist on the billionaire/CEO trope to have the heroine in that role. I really loved how intelligent and driven Cameron was and the strong female friendships throughout the story. Cameron's banter with Jude was so fun and I loved the build up between them. They both are slow to trust for various reasons and I really enjoyed seeing them let

The second book of this smashing series and while I first thought that this was not the usual CK’s story, I later had to change my mind because I surely recognized her author’s perfect touch. About the characters; Jude a hunky one man show, is hired as security for Cameron, for a seemingly innocuous episode of mugging that later turns out to be a major threat for her life. Jude is a mystery but he knows his way around and dealing with a witty and a cocky redhead like Cameron makes his blood boil ...more

WOW! Just Wow! This is book is everything and then some. Such wonderful main characters, with an attraction to each other which is so hot!

Cameron is a billionaire CEO, and her 3 girlfriends say she needs a bodyguard, but does she? Not according to her, she is fine, it was a random attack, it was nothing!

Jude is an ex-marine, ex-CIA and a huge muscular hunk of a man, who plans to retire, but another job comes up, and his friend Derek is asking him as a favour, so how can he say no, the person he

Claire Kingsley is a new author to me and I thoroughly enjoyed The Mogul & The Muscle.
Where do I start? I fell hard and fast for Jude Ellis, he ticked all the boxes for me and he was totally swoon worthy whilst Cameron Whitbury not only has brains, she is independent, feisty and sassy. Separately these two are amazing characters but when they get together they really rock it.

Although this book could be read as a standalone, I highly recommend starting with Lucy’s Score’s “The Price of Scandal” first. That is the first of four books in this Bluewater Billionaire series.

Cameron Whitbury is a powerful billionaire CEO and whether she likes it or not, her friends insist on her hiring private security after an incident in a parking garage at work leaves her silently shaken. She honestly believes that it was a random attack and that there is no need for all the fuss of hi

Cameron Whitbury...ginger, genius, shoe fanatic...pretty much a girl after my whole heart.

I mean have you ever read a story where you find yourself falling harder for the heroine than the hero?
Cameron is totally that character! She’s THAT chick! Total girl crush happening here!

Jude Ellis...former CIA, tall drink of muscle...can use his strength to break your hand or for *ahem* other fun pleasurable other words he’s your go to man for ev-ery-thing. He may look like the unflappa

I love reading new to me authors.  I am loving this series about a group of vagillionares and their lives!

This is Cameron and Jude's story.  You get excitement, you get a bit of mystery and oh the swoons!

Cameron is another fabulous lady boss! She is smart, she is successful and she has a target on her back.  I admired her strength and I flove the friendships she has. 

Oh Jude, you strong, silent alpha! He doesn't say much, but boy when he does!  He is trying hard to retire, but he just can't say
