“A wild ride that will leave you turning the pages, desperate to become lost in every crafted word.” ~ Kathy Coopmans, USA Today Bestselling Author
Love can be blinding and by the time the truth shines through, it’s too late to escape.
All I wanted was to catch a break. For the right person to hear me sing and launch my career into the stratosphere. Then, smooth and debonair Jonathan sauntered into my life. With a glance, he stole the breath from my lungs and awoke feelings within me I never knew existed.
Sexy, rich, and successful; he’s a man that demands control… over every aspect of my life and career. Blinded by desire, I agreed to the tight restraints of his terms.
But the fantasy life I envisioned for us morphed into a twisted nightmare when dark secrets from Jonathan’s past came to light. Now I fear, if I can’t escape, my career aspirations won’t be the only thing that fades away under his obsessive tendencies.

Shuffling behind me catches me off guard and when I turn, I come face to face with the dark-haired man Joseph was talking to. All six feet plus of him. My hands reach out to push him away, only to land on his rock-hard chest and stay there. The sudden urge to explore his body startles me at the same moment as my phone. When it chimes on the counter behind me, I reach for it but don’t get far. Tall, dark, and handsome gently takes my outstretched hand in his, brings it to his lips, and kisses my palm.
“Hello,” he softly says as he laces his fingers with mine.
“Um,” I stutter. His dark, almost black eyes are staring into mine, holding me and my words captive. I can’t bring myself to look away as he traces circles on the back of my hand with his thumb.
Who is this man, and what is he doing to me?
He oozes confidence, money, and power. I knew he was important when I saw Joseph paying attention to him. There was no doubt in my mind but now… now I want to know who he is, why he’s here, and most importantly, why he’s paying attention to me.
I’m no one. A woman with a dream.
Something about the look in his eye tells me he wants me. It also tells me he’s planning on having me. There’s desire mixed with promise. Need. Lust. I saw the same look in Joseph’s eyes the night we first met.
Whoever he is, he has me. I’ll be his. Screw Joseph. I got what I wanted from him. After tonight I won’t need him anymore. But this man, he has something to offer me as well. I’m not sure what it is, but I want to find out. I have to.
The need building in me will be fulfilled.
It might end after one night of passion, but I have a feeling it’ll be worth it.
“Good luck tonight,” he says with a wink before releasing my hands and turning to leave. A very sexy, he knows exactly what he’s done to me, wink. One that ensures I’ll watch him as he walks around the corner and continue to stare long after I hear the door close. They’ve killed my hard-on, but that also means we can leave now.
