Then I run into this delicious-looking guy with eyes like emeralds and he invites me over to his place. My roommate convinces me to go even though I am not that kind of girl. I get there and he offers me a job doing the same boring paperwork I was doing before, except this pays so much more.
But there’s a catch. He won’t tell me his name, so I have to call him The Employer. If I call him something else, or break any of his other rules, then I get punished. Punishments involve whips and handcuffs and a bunch of other toys I’ve never heard of, let alone felt.
Can I go through with this? Am I that kind of girl?
My roommate is crazy. She thinks this is good for me. That I don’t get out enough. That I need to get my head out of my books and into a ball gag.
But she hasn’t seen him when he gets angry.
How far would you go to save someone you love? Would you give up your body? Your mind? Your heart?
I did and it cost me everything.
He says he owns me. And it’s true.
I’ve signed over complete control of my body and life for six months to a man I don’t know. Five years he’s been planning this. They say revenge is a dish best served cold. But my blackmailer serves it up white hot. He’s addicted to my innocence, and I’m addicted to him.
He likes to hurt me. I love to let him. He brings me to life. He sets me free. He makes my heart feel things it shouldn’t.
But he also scares me. He holds the fate of my brother’s life in his hands. A life behind bars for crimes I know he didn’t commit. My blackmailer can’t give up his revenge on my family, and I can’t be with him if he doesn’t. But I’m nothing more than a butterfly caught in his net. Do I really have a choice?
Staying away from him is a fight I can't hope to win.
I haven't seen my stepbrother since the night of my daddy's funeral. He kissed me hard, turned around, and walked clean out of my life just when I needed him most.
While I've been working my ass off in medical school, he's been fighting on the underground circuit...or so I hear. Probably drinking and womanizing too--it's all he's ever done.
Now I'm back in town, and I hope I never see him again. Even if I can't get him out of my head.
But when Joshua "Long Shot" McRae shows up on my porch in the middle of a damn storm with a dislocated shoulder and a cut that needs twenty stitches, I can't turn him away, can I?
It's only just this once.
