Denver, Colorado – Present Day

Billionaire Zeb Richards takes over the Beaumont Brewery and announces to the press he is the illegitimate son of the late Hardwick Beaumont, hoping to claim his rightful place in Denver alongside his legitimate siblings.  Zeb plans to overhaul the company, but one of his employees, brewmaster Casey Johnson, confronts him. She wants him to leave her department alone because she's already short-staffed and needs autonomy to do her job. To Zeb's surprise, he agrees. Something about Casey intrigues him…

Casey works hard and loves her job, but with Zeb being the third owner of the brewery in the past year, all the changes are hindering her work. Grateful for his agreement to her demands, she's also aware of the attraction between them that simmers below the surface. Hanging out with Zeb soon leads to a sexual encounter that scares them both. Neither can afford any romantic involvement as they work to right the brewery. But while trying to keep their relationship all business, Casey learns she is pregnant…with Zeb's child!

Zeb has a huge chip on his shoulder and one can understand why. His black mother was paid off by Hardwick Beaumont to never reveal he'd sired Zeb. Probably just as well because the old man treated his children badly and left the company in shambles. Zeb has built his own empire from nothing and taking over the brewery is a feather in his cap. Casey is one of the dedicated brewery employees, and he soon learns she's indispensable. Getting to know each other inside and outside the company, their relationship begins to change. Zeb is there to run a business and Casey needs her job, so they back off on anything more happening between them. But it doesn't stop the wanting…

Part of The Beaumont Heirs , HIS ILLEGITIMATE HEIR can be read as a standalone without any difficultly. This tale is all about the relationship between Zeb and Casey. They start out as adversaries, but there's no denying the chemistry that sizzles between them. But once they give into the passion, the connection between them shocks them—and they backtrack. How will Zeb react when he finds out Casey is pregnant?  He was raised without being acknowledged by his father. Will history repeat itself?

Casey and Zeb weren't looking for love in their business relationship, but that's exactly what they find in HIS ILLEGITIMATE HEIR. Will things work out for them? Find out in this intriguing tale.
