 Twenty-eight year old Shannon had been in a platonic relationship with her childhood sweetheart for eight years. In the beginning, she’d thought she would be able to go through life, making do without the physical aspect of a sexual relationship, but after eight years of going through the motions, Shannon was ready to admit, she could no longer continue. So, she sets off on a quest to find the man who could meet all of her needs.
Brent was very angry when he found out his friend was pining after a woman who was heartless enough to lead him on, and then walked out on him, without so much as a, goodbye. He vowed to teach her a lesson by seducing her, and then he in turn would walk out on her, as she had done his friend.
Unfortunately, "The best laid schemes of mice and men, oft awry," because after setting up an elaborate plan to meet Shannon, Brent gets caught in his own net, and no matter how hard he fights, he only becomes more entangled in the game of love. Now he has to work on making Shannon fall in love with him because he needs her love, like he needs air to breathe. The sparks begin to fly between Shannon and Brent as they fight to resist the temptation of a love that was inevitable.

 READ A BRIEF  EXCERPT

Ms. Andrews walked into the room, and Damien felt the air leave his lungs. He could not see her, but he felt Jake’s reaction also. He was not certain if he was mirroring Jake’s reaction to the candidate or his own overactive imagination. Whatever the reason, he had a physical reaction to whomever it was that walked into his library. She was polite and calm, and he sensed she had a smile on her face because Jake had an answering smile in his voice when he greeted her. Poor Damien, he couldn’t see a thing, but boy, was he aware of her. He could smell the fragrance she was wearing, and it was doing strange things to his body.
There was a hint of jasmine, mixed with a bit of musk, but the overwhelming scent was of violet. He recognized the scent because of the perfusion of violet plants that grew in the garden surrounding his house.
It was his favorite flower. He was never tired of sitting on the porch just inhaling its heady fragrance. On Ms. Andrews, the fragrance was positively intoxicating. The mixture of violet with her unique scent was overpowering. Damien was almost in pain from the strength of his physical reaction to her. He was uncomfortable in his seat and kept fidgeting and moving to get a more comfortable position. He did not want either Jake or the young woman to notice his discomfort. He desperately wanted to see the woman who was in his library, but he had to be content with just listening to her responses to Jake’s questions.
She sounded a bit flustered because she would begin each response with a slight nervous laugh, and Jake would respond in kind. This exchange between the two infuriated Damien, who wanted to participate in the conversation. He interrupted one of Jake’s questions to her with one of his own.

“Tell me, Ms. Andrews, how long have you been out of school?”
