When nurse Sara Peters treats celebrity billionaire Trenton Merrick for
a mysterious injury to his forehead, she is blindsided by what follows:
A passionate exchange in the examination room, followed by an invitation
to Trenton’s mansion the next night. 

 

Trenton spins a web of deceit and seduction around Sara that both
repels and attracts her. One part humanitarian, the other international
financial mogul, his professional and public life are a curious contradiction.
As Sara journeys deeper into her feelings for Trenton and
begins unraveling the mystery behind his injury, she finds herself
embroiled in a game of trust and betrayal, where the odds are stacked in
Trenton’s favor, and the outcome for the loser is too terrifying to conceive.
 

 Excerpt:
 
 
Mr. Merrick and I face each other. I rock back and forth on
my feet nervously.
“Well, I guess this is good-bye.” I stick out my hand for
him to shake.
Mr. Merrick slips his hand into mine, but instead of shaking
it, he uses his hold as leverage to pull me into him.
“I’m really looking forward to tomorrow evening, Miss
Peters,” he says, his lips hovering dangerously close to mine. “After all, I
believe I owe you a proper kiss.”
My jaw drops. If what we shared earlier isn’t a real kiss in
his book, I can’t imagine what one actually entails.
I feel one hundred pairs of eyes on us from every direction.
“Uh, thank you for, uh, coming, Mr. Merrick,” I say, trying
to remain calm, as though he and I are having nothing more than an innocent
conversation.
Mr. Merrick drops my hand, but doesn’t move away. As if I’m not turned
on enough, he leans in and brushes his lips to my ear. “Welcome to my world,
Miss Peters. You’ll soon discover that I live up to my many reputations in
every way.”
