Overview

A renovation brings two men together who will find that unexpected meetings can bring about the most tempting of encounters. As the contractor works on getting the project in on time he also has his sights set on building something with the owner.

Leigh Masters is concerned the renovation of Masters Pages-his bookstore-will not be completed in time. He's losing his cool. A call to find the contractor he hired brings unexpected results. The man doing his project has run off. In his place Malcolm-his brother and the owner of the company-comes to see Leigh. The man makes Leigh feel off-kilter. He has his doubts about Malcolm's assurances that the job will be done on time. As the renovation progresses he finds it hard to resist the temptation of the man who is now in charge of renovating his bookstore. Malcolm knows what he's doing but Leigh wants to shake up his quiet, calm persona to see what he has hidden underneath.

Malcolm Snipes has worked alongside his brothers to build Snipes Construction, their family owned business. He strives to maintain their reputation of providing excellent work, on-time projects and being professional. He's tired of picking up the messes of one of his irresponsible brothers. Except this time, the call he gets from an irate client brings him into the path of a man who is fascinating. This time, Malcolm won't mind taking over the renovation, since it means he can keep an eye on sharp-tongued and sexy Leigh Masters.

This renovation is about to become very interesting as they each wonder what happens after the fall…

Read an Excerpt

Juggling the boxes he held, Leigh Masters unlocked his bookstore, Masters' Pages. He grimaced at the sight of the boarded-up front windows, which would usually be showcasing his store logo and an eye-catching display he had created to entice customers in. Leigh pulled open the door and stepped inside. He took in the construction equipment and other paraphernalia that the guts of his business had become. Then he gazed at what used to be the wall of the store next door.

Over a year ago, Leigh had purchased it to expand his business. He'd cashed in some investments to pay for the space and the renovations-thankfully he hadn't had to get any loans. After so many years of hard work he owned the building his store was housed in and he wasn't about to put it in hock again. Once he had the expansion space, he'd worked tirelessly with the company he'd hired to create his new, expanded store, as well as the living quarters he used above. Finally, when he had a design and when it was feasible, he'd closed the store down to get everything done.

Leigh walked to his front counter, which usually held a register. Now it was devoid of anything. Leigh slid the boxes onto the surface. With the combination of the two spaces the store would be much larger, so in the new design he would be having a few more counter-style checkouts put in. Leigh turned, scowling at the silent room. His contractor and his crew were absent again-as they had been for the last two weeks. Frustration filled him. He'd called the man and got nothing but excuses. He'd gone by his offices and again been assured that they would be there in morning and not to worry, the construction would be finished on time. Yet the next morning, it hadn't happened. The last few times Leigh had called, the man hadn't even answered his phone and neither had the secretary. Leigh pulled out his cell phone and dialled the number again. He readied himself to leave another message.

He almost dropped the phone when a voice answered.

"Snipes C-"

Recognising that deep baritone, Leigh launched into what he had to say. "Mr Snipes, this is Leigh Masters. Your promises of getting my store ready to schedule have been false. No work has been done for over two weeks. Either get your crew here-today-or I will be contacting my lawyer about the violation of our contract. As well as finding someone else who is competent for the job. Today, Mr Snipes." Leigh hung up.

He immediately dialled again to his lawyer's office.

"Windsor Broadhurst's office. How may I help you?"

Leigh made an appointment to see Windsor and hung up.
