Publisher's Summary

One geology intern who desperately needs to be rescued from a hostage situation. One billionaire who has the capability to save her life. Two people who are inexplicably drawn to each other even though they have almost nothing in common.

Taylor

Just when I thought I was destined to die in a foreign country after being kidnapped while doing a geological exploration, a mysterious rescuer shows up just in time to save my life.

Unfortunately, my liberator also happens to be the co-CEO of Montgomery Mining, my employer, and a billionaire with an attitude.

At first glance, Hudson Montgomery seems like the quintessential gorgeous billionaire with plenty of money to burn and no concern for anyone but himself.

The arrogant billionaire I could handle, but I wasn't quite so sure how to deal with the amazing guy I discovered once I looked past the superficial exterior. The one who stayed by my side as I recovered mentally and physically from the trauma of being a hostage.

There was so much more to Hudson than just billions of dollars, a prestigious last name, and a very handsome face.

When the white-hot chemistry between the two of us finally explodes, do I trust the man I've come to know, or do I accept that Hudson Montgomery is the same guy the rest of the world sees?

Hudson Sets Out To Find Taylor In A Hostage Rescue

Hudson Sets Out To Find Taylor In A Hostage Rescue Mission, But Love Finds Them In The Aftermath! Hudson And Taylor’s Story Includes Danger In Foreign Lands And Patient Romance As The Couple Is Brought Together Under Extreme Circumstances.


This is the fifteenth book in The Billionaire’s Obsession series. Each book in the series reads perfectly as a standalone. Books one through five are centered around Tampa, Florida. Book six is a bridge between The Sinclairs series and this series, but it also shifts the series to Colorado. The series continues in Colorado with the Colter family, whose five children comprise books seven through eleven. In books ten and eleven, the Colter twins marry the Lawson sisters. After, the series continues on in Seattle with the three Lawson brothers. Mason Lawson’s newly-discovered cousins, the Montgomerys, then take over the series in San Diego. Their stories provide a bridge to The Accidental Billionaires series.

The books about the Montgomery family cross over with the series about the West Coast Sinclairs – The Accidental Billionaires series. Little sister Riley Montgomery, an environmental lawyer, has already found her HEA with Seth Sinclair, the self-made construction worker turned billionaire builder, in Enamored. Her three older brothers, however, remain available.

About the Montgomerys:

Mason Lawson, whose story was told in book fourteen, had learned as an adult that he was adopted by his father, and that his father had married his mother after she was drugged and sexually assaulted by his biological father, a Montgomery. Mason was fortunate to have been raised in a loving home by a father that loved him as his own. Hudson Montgomery recently learned of the family connection himself. He and his siblings have since connected with their newly-discovered cousin Mason, and the Montgomerys and Lawsons are already beginning to feel like family.

The Montgomery children had not fared better in terms of fathers. In fact, they arguably had it worse since they were raised by their father in a cold home absent of love. The children had all been gifted, and while Riley had been left home alone, the boys had been sent away to a private school for gifted children. Their mother was concerned with appearances more than her children’s welfare. The Montgomery kids suspect she knew all along that Riley had been the victim of incest, simply choosing to turn a blind eye. The news devastated the boys when the finally found out. Their father had passed on, and they had stopped all communication with their mother.

The boys each graduated with a business degree by age twenty, and all chose to go into service. Hudson entered the Marines and served in the Delta Force. Jax became a Navy SEAL, and Cooper was an Army Ranger. The boys enjoyed their independence and service in the military, but once they had discovered mismanagement at Montgomery Mining following their father’s death, they each left when their contracts ran out. Hudson had returned first and had already made great strides by the time his brothers joined him at the helm. Today Montgomery Mining is the largest mining operation in the world. Their cutting edge tech and research make them a leader in their field. The brothers now live in the spotlight as eligible billionaire bachelors.

After returning to the civilian life, the brothers didn’t give up on serving their country. They organized an undercover operation to help with hostage rescues in cases where the U.S. government cannot help. The government conveniently looks the other way, but if the veil of secrecy is pierced and Last Hope becomes known to the public, their operation will be forced to shut down. PRO, a similar organization that Mason’s brother Jett had participated in, had been forced to shut down following a helicopter crash that alerted the public to its existence. Last Hope is now one of the last places families and companies can turn to in a crisis, so secrecy is of paramount importance.

In this book:

This book opens about one month after the close of Mason’s in Billionaire Unattainable, book fourteen of the series. The Montgomery brothers have just taken unprecedented time off together – nine days – to help celebrate their cousin Mason and Laura’s wedding in Seattle.

Hudson Montgomery, thirty-four, works tirelessly at Montgomery Mining. He has a beautiful beach home in Del Mar that he doesn’t have time to enjoy. The women he has known are only interested in his name or his money. All his relationships have ended in disappointment, and he has given up on the idea that a woman might actually care about him. He enjoyed spending time with his cousin Mason and his family, and had left things under control at the company prior to leaving. He certainly hadn’t anticipated that management would fail to reach out to them in the event of a crisis, so he and Jax are rightfully angered upon their return to learn that three of their employees on an assignment in the Mediterranean island nation of Lania have been held for nine days by rebels. It was thought that the little nation had been rid of its guerilla resistance in the two years since Crown Prince Niklaos had taken control, bringing an influx of interest in the island. The safety of the mission had not even been a question. In their absence, the company had negotiated the release of Harlow Davis, but two remained behind. One male and one summer intern. Mark and Taylor. The rebels were notoriously brutal, and after nine days’ time the survival of the remaining two was unlikely.

Taylor Delaney, twenty-eight, is alone in the world. Although her childhood was tragic, it had her led to Mac Tanaka. Mac had taken her in at age eleven. He was in his seventies, and she and the older man made for an odd sort of family. He became her only parent figure. In the ten years she had with him, he had taken an angry girl and shaped her into the woman she had become. He taught her Tai Chi and chess as well as the Eastern philosophy that he picked up from his Japanese ancestry. She was taught the tools she needed to master herself and her emotions so that her emotions rarely got the best of her. Mac had encouraged Taylor to attend college, and she was ready to head off to Stanford when he was diagnosed with cancer. Taylor chose to delay her studies and instead spend every last day possible taking care of the man that had raised her. Mac died when she was twenty-one. In the last seven years, she attended Stanford and worked to help support herself as she completed her master’s degree in environmental geology. She snapped up an opportunity to intern over the summer at Montgomery Mining, hoping the coveted opportunity would help prepare her for the job market.

When Hudson and Jax personally go on Last Hope’s mission to save their employees, there is little chance of success. But Hudson was drawn to the redhead beauty whose picture and bio connected with him in a mysterious way. They share a lost childhood, though in different ways. Her brief story tells him that she is a survivor, and that gives him a glimmer of hope as he determinedly sets out to rescue her.

Hudson and Taylor’s story includes danger in foreign lands and patient romance as the couple is brought together under extreme circumstances. Taylor is brilliant and independent-minded. The control over her thoughts that Mac taught her proves to be an incredible shield as she faces brutal circumstances that would cripple others emotionally. The way she deals with her captivity and its aftermath inspire deep questions about mind over matter. Her sarcasm cannot be held back, and her sassy attitude takes Hudson completely by surprise. Her strength of mind, her selflessness, and her independence win him over almost immediately. Hudson’s protection and attentive care feel alien to Taylor, but it endears him to her as well. The couple faces issues of guilt and trust as they dance around their feelings for one another. The couple eventually earns their happy ending.

Jax’s story with Harlow follows in the next book in the series and gets a short introduction here.

For those following the ages of the Montgomery children, Hudson is the oldest and has just turned thirty-four. Jax follows at thirty-three and is ten months younger than Hudson. They all came back to back, so Cooper is roughly thirty-two and Riley thirty-one.

Hudson sets out to find Taylor in a hostage rescue mission, but love finds them in the aftermath. The story is well-written. The plot is somewhat complex. The characters are carefully crafted. The story is written in first person. The POV alternates between Hudson and Taylor, with one chapter in Jax’s POV. I rate this book 4.5 stars.


As for the Audio: it is very well-performed and consistent with the book. For me, the fabulous deep tones of the male voice were harder to follow when I increased the speed. The male voice was sometimes on the fast side, so I found myself rewinding and/or slowing down.

I received an audiobook and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Love this series!

This series is an easy listen and follows the billionaire trope pretty closely. Hudson and Taylor’s story started with a traumatic and horrible kidnapping. When Hudson rescues Taylor his protective instinct kicks in and their relationship grows from there. Brian Pallino and Elizabeth Powers were fantastic and brought this low angst story to life in a beautiful way.

Great Read

Billionaire Undercover~ Hudson (The Billionaire’s Obsession #15) was another great read by J.S. Scott. Taylor was kidnapped and is held hostage while on a geological exploration. Hudson rescues Taylor and also happens to be her employer. He is also a billionaire with an attitude. Once Taylor gets past his gruff exterior, she realizes he isn’t so bad. I really enjoyed reading Taylor and Hudson’s hot chemistry. I cant wait to read more by J.S. Scott.

another great book!

Billionaire Uncovered - Hudson by J. S. Scott was just another good book by this very talented author. Hudson is another hot Montgomery man. Taylor was anything but weak. She endured so much until Hudson rescues her. I couldn't put the book down.  The narrator was awesome as always.

Hudson Undercover

Before Hudson became head of Montgomery Mining he and his brothers were part of special forces. When they came back to the company after their father died they never left serving just made their military experience private. This secretive team were hired to do special missions in which the Government could not do. A kidnapping happened with a few of Montgomery Mining employees. Hudson and Jax, his brother decided to go in and rescue the last person held. Jax and Hudson looked at Taylor's picture. Hudson was so taken aback in her beauty. The story unfolds in the ups and downs of their love story. The performance of this audio book was great. Book #15 in the Billionaires series. great!

Emotional and really loving

This is the 15th book in the The Billionaire's Obsession series, and it's unlike any of the others. It was emotional, cathartic and

Taylor and Hudson are brought together by a tense hostage situation. Hudson, Taylor's employer, is also on her rescue team. They develop an intense bond during her rescue, and Hudson feels an immediate connection and longing. He wants to keep her safe, he wants to make this experience up to her, and he wants to give her better memories.

Taylor is not naive, but she is inexperienced when it comes to love and that kind of emotional connection. She also suffered much cruelty at the hands of her captors while being held hostage. But she knows in the depths of heart that Hudson would never hurt her. She trusts him before he trusts herself.

This was a very good listen. I loved that this had dual narration, with Brian Pallino voicing Hudson's chapters. Elizabeth Powers is excellent, as she has been this entire series.

Completely my favourite in the series

OH MY GOD - I loved this book and i absolutely loved the dual narration both narrators were fantastic.

I have previously already read and loved this story on ebook but it was brought to life by Brian and Elizabeth,

Hudson is so kind and gentle and the story is fast paced and exciting with the right amount or emotion and sensitivity you would expect from a J.S. Scott book.

Too tame for me

I really like a lot of JS Scott's books. I find them to be emotionally healing. I also applaud her for bringing attention to sexual abuse in many of her books. This book for me missed a bit of tension and heat. The characters are quite likable and the narration was good. I don't know how this is relevant , but I would prefer the picture on the bookcover to include a woman ,makes it more vivid. Also, even thought the guy on the cover is obviously very attractive, he doesn't seem to resemble Hudson, who has grey eyes and brownish hair.

Hudson and Taylor!

As one of the owners of Montgomery Mining with his military background there is no one else Hudson trusts to rescue his kidnapped employees from rebel forces except for him. What he wasn’t prepared for was the abuse that they had already suffered or how from the moment that he saw Taylor all he wanted was to protect her and help her heal.

When Taylor accepted the opportunity to work for Hudson’s company all she saw was the incredible opportunity and not the danger. Her kidnappers have exposed her to deplorable conditions and all she has left is hope when Hudson comes to her rescue. She never expected to see him again let alone how supportive and hands on he would be when it comes to her recovery.

Hunter is so patient and caring when it comes to Taylor and he knows that she is his destiny while. Taylor’s strength and resilience shine through and she is one of the few people who truly sees Hudson for the man he is and not his reputation. The narrators made a great story even better by ensuring you felt the same emotions as the characters during their journey.

Hudson

Liked the male narrator, the female one has read all the other books and there are some lines this author uses in all her books. Tends to repeat the same point a few times too - Overall not bad Hudson rescues girl, helps her deal with her trauma and she does same for
Him they fall for each other, get engaged and the penultimate chapter introduces next book.

Love heals

Billionaire Undercover hits the ground running as strong alpha business man, Hudson rescues Taylor.
Their beautiful love story happens as he takes care of her as she heals.
What I love most about her books is that they both need saving in their own way and this is no different.
I laughed and cried as they find their way together

It can be read as a standalone but is an offshoot of the larger 'billionaire' series and I would encourage you to read all of them

Love overcomes great obstacles

Really loved this story and the characters Taylor and Hudson.
Saving her from a terrorist group he begins to develop feelings for Taylor and wants to provide all the necessary care for her recovery, but is wary of making the depth of his emotions known for fear of scaring her away.
The narrator did a fabulous job of bringing all the characters to life and I highly recommend this audiobook.

Yes and Yes again

I loved listening to Elizabeth Powers and Brian Pallino. Both are perfect for this book

Where does one begin. Taylor and Hudson's story is one of pain, understanding and love.

Having been held as a hostage and gone through hell, Taylor is rescued by Hudson . Both have to cover come a painful past and now present for Taylor.

You will want to cry , and so want a good out come. This is a love story and I loved it.

Hudson's caring side is shown and you will feel for him.

Hot scenes ,..

Sit back and enjoy.

Fantastic narratored book 15

Finally more Montgomery brothers. Hudson is a Montgomery miner brother but previous to him and his brothers taking over there father’s company they were all in the military and finally settled in with Last Hope which is a private hostage rescue.
Taylor is a intern for the Montgomery company and wants to be a geologist and life’s not been easiest for her so far but while on a trip for company Taylor is kidnapped with her friend and her boyfriend.
So much goes on in this book, you get a better insight into Last Hope and the people that are involved.
I love how Hudson and Taylor develop there relationship especially with Hudson awe inspired by how Taylor survived such awful situation.
Absolutely loved J. S. Scott and her books can let you escape into a fantastic book world where you just forget what’s going on in the world and troubles in your life.

brilliant !

An emotional and sad start to a powerful steamy and moving story

This was an intense and gripping story line, with wonderful characters.
From tragedy to a well deserved happy ending.
The author never fails to give 100% and I can't wait for what comes next.
Great naration from Elizabeth powers as always and Brian Pallino was perfect as Hudson. Their voices worked incredibly well together.
