It is my pleasure to spotlight another title from a talented and prolific author.
In Their Eyes, Book 2
She needs redemption
He needs to demand it of her.
Entrepreneur Smith MacLean is obsessed with Alessandra Soriano, a woman he met briefly who disappeared six months ago. After a shocking reunion at Club Kink, he insists she stay with him. He means to find out where she's been.
Alessandra walked away from her life after making a mistake that cost everything. Her self-imposed penance is living in poverty and doing questionable things with questionable people. Now she's in Smith's luxurious condo, under his hand, and obeying his rules.
He has thirty days to convince her to come back from limbo. She has thirty days to convince him she needs to be forgotten. Unless the flames of lust consume them first.
“Get it through your thick skull, Alessandra—you’re coming home with me. Now put your belongings in a suitcase, and let’s get out of here before we catch something.”
“I don’t have a suitcase, and even if I did, I wouldn’t follow you anywhere. Get it through your thick skull.” She mimicked him. “I’m not leaving, and you can’t force me.”
His face darkened, and this time she did shrink down an inch or two. Maybe three.
“I have a proposition for you. We’re going to pretend, just for a moment, you have some say in this. Either you come with me or we go down to the closest cop shop, and you explain where you’ve been for the last six months. I’ll tell them I’ve found a missing person. Maybe I’ll even get a reward.”
She laughed mirthlessly. “No one would care enough to offer a reward for me.”
He snaked out his hand, grabbing her wrist. “I’m going to pretend I didn’t hear that. Now are you bringing clothes, or am I just hauling you out of here as you are?”
A frisson of terror ran up and down her spine, and her hands became clammy. Until now she’d counted on Smith being a gentleman. He was a friend of Gage’s, so he couldn’t be a threat to her. She looked into the depths of those azure eyes. Uh-oh, that fine line she was walking was getting thinner. He was keeping his temper in check—barely—and this wasn’t going to end well.
