Lucy Delacourt's temp position isn't quite her dream job but it pays the bills. The highlight of her day is riding the elevator in the mornings with a handsome stranger. Tall, dark, and sexy as hell, Lucy knows he's way out of her league, but a girl can look, right?
Everything changes the day the stranger seduces her. Completely out of character, she yields without a fight, but she has no idea her wanton acts with a man whose name she doesn't know will change her life forever. Because the sexy stranger is none other than Jeremiah Hamilton, billionaire CEO of Hamilton Industries, and one taste isn't nearly enough to satisfy his need. As the billionaire pulls Lucy deeper into his world of high stakes business deals and ruthless takeovers, he demands nothing less than her complete surrender. But even as enemies seek deadly revenge against him, she’ll discover that her greatest threat is falling for her fiercely guarded boss…and yielding to her own darkest needs.
The high point of my workdays lately was seeing the gorgeous stranger every morning.
I hurried through the lobby toward the elevators as fast as decorum and my heels would allow, passing ladders and service crews working on the old building’s antiquated electrical systems. The dark-haired stranger arrived at the elevator like clockwork, at 8:20 a.m. every day, and this morning proved no exception. I jockeyed my way through the crowd until I stood close, but not conspicuously so, to the stranger and stared at the elevator doors while pretending to ignore him. It wasn’t a game, although it sometimes felt that way. Men that handsome always stayed several steps outside my sphere of in?uence and this man was no different.
Didn’t mean a girl couldn’t dream.
