Overview

Elizabeth seemed to have it all - beauty, brains and a bright future ahead. However, in spite of all she'd achieved for herself at a young age, the woman within her longed for more, much more. Suddenly, fate and her primal emotions converge to drive her into the arms of someone who can fulfill those secret, unmet needs.

A chance late night encounter with the handsome and enigmatic Marcus sets Elizabeth off on an unexpected crash course with her feminine destiny. In a world ruled by the first impression, his is unexpectedly mysterious and not at all what she presumes.

And one thing is for sure - he is no white knight. His intentions are far darker and infinitely deeper than any man she's ever encountered.

In spite of this, or perhaps because of it, it isn't long before she discovers that he's everything she needs to meet the ancient demands that time places upon a woman. Helpless under the carnal commands of her own flesh, Elizabeth soon finds that Marcus occupies her thoughts (as well as her body) and is determined to take full possession of both.

His singular purpose is to show the defiant Elizabeth the true path for a woman...

An Excerpt from the Book:

Lizzy turned to head back towards her office and as she did, Marcus unexpectedly placed his thick palm in the tender space of her lower back and said calmly, "Elizabeth, please allow me to escort you back safely."

The sensitive muscles along her spine flinched submissively. Embarrassed by their betrayal, Lizzy huffed in reply and said quickly, "I'm quite capable of getting back there on my own. Thank you, Marcus."

Marcus increased the pressure enough to make a point and replied, "I'm sure that you are. And, please, refer to me as Mister Payne." He emphasized the title as if she should have already known to use it.

Lizzy swallowed hard under his veiled threat of dominance. But, rather than make a scene, she just decided it was wiser to move on and she replied, "My apologies, Mister Payne. Thank you, but I'd prefer it if you didn't."

Marcus slowly removed his hand and said, "Ma'am..." He then nodded his head, lightly touched the brim of his hat, opened the exit door and proceeded out of the building.

Lizzy stood there... paralyzed. The nerve! Who the hell does he think he is?

She was insulted and... unbelievably, turned on. As the heavy exit door slammed shut behind him, Lizzy leaned forward to savor one final fragrant inhale of his essence.
