Overview

Marco Donati is rich, ruthless--and more often than not--indiscriminate. Interested only in satisfying his sexual needs casually and frequently, he has no intention of changing a thing about his life. Natalie Lambert is alone, broke, and new to the city when a chance encounter leaves her under the power and control of Marco Donati. As the story unfolds, tensions mount and trust is tested between two people who can't manage to stay away from each other.


Excerpt:
Natalie took refuge in the upstairs powder room of the mansion in River Oaks and held her tube of lip gloss with hands that shook. She desperately tried to control the trembling in her fingers so she could reapply the color to her lips.

As she looked at herself in the mirror, she knew her inner turmoil was well hidden behind a fa├žade of soft silky hair, a sleek designer dress, and perfect make-up that lacked only the gloss she sought to repair.

The door began to open with not even a tiny sound of warning and her eyes flew to the knob that she had sworn she'd locked. Her breath lodged in her throat as Marco slipped inside, secured the door that she had failed to lock only minutes before, and came to stand behind her in the tiny room.

He pressed his chest against her back, propelling her forward a few inches until she was crowded against the vanity. Her nerves shifted restlessly, and the impact of his body against hers made her lipstick fall from her fingers and land in the sink in front of her.
Her eyes tangled with his in the mirror. The look on his face jolted her heart and her pulse skittered and began pounding in her chest.

He towered over her, and the muscles beneath his designer suit were corded and strained. His eyes were furious, and he held his lips tightly closed over teeth she knew were gritted in anger. She struggled to control her features, to keep all expression from her face. She would be damned if she let him see how badly she was hurting. She refused to take responsibility for the scene that had just taken place; she was innocent of all wrong-doing.

She began to open her mouth to tell him so.

Before she could get one word out, his hand snaked out and covered her mouth and suppressed her words in a grip so ruthless that it made her nostrils flare and her eyes widen in barely controlled panic.

He lowered his mouth to her ear and held her eyes with his while he hissed out his fury. "I told you not to wear this dress." He held her silent and immobilized with one steely arm while his other hand reached in front of her and captured her soft flesh within his grip. He held her between his finger and thumb tightly, just short of pain, in a display of ownership and control.

Natalie sucked in oxygen through her nose and closed her eyes against him and the erotic picture they made in the mirror.

"I told you what Kennedy would do if you wore this dress. He can't ever keep his damn eyes off you." He dropped his hand inside her neckline and delved inside her lace-edged bra until he was holding her in a possessive grip. "I can't believe I let you buy the damn thing. I'm burning it when we get home."

Natalie held her eyes closed and tried not to be controlled by his intimate touch on her naked flesh. It was almost impossible to fight against. It had been this way since the day she'd met him, and she very much feared it would be this way until the day she died.

"Open your eyes," he growled in her ear.

She didn't comply quickly enough to suit him and his hand dropped from her mouth to land on the pulse beating rapidly in her throat, in a sexually intimidating move. Her eyes flew open at the demanding touch and tangled with his in the mirror as his hands caressed her with firm, possessive strokes. She licked her dry lips and tried to get her throat to work. "It's not the dress," she argued softly.

"No, it's damn well not the dress. It's you. He wants you and thinks he can have you."

    So good. I adore Lynda Chance's books and this was fantastic! I love the way she writes a good, dominant - yet caring man. I was SO excited to see she had a new book out - she is one I always purchase immediately.

    Good but rushed in the end

    I liked the book but gave it four stars for two reasons. The guy is obsessive and domineering to the point of freaky at times. In some scenes, I would have run from this guy far and fast. That spoiled the connection between the reader and the character. Second, the end was too rushed. This sudden change of pace in the narrative left me disappointed.

    Great!

    This was my first time reading this author and I personally liked the way the characters were developed.

    Marco is a sexy Italian guy of few words who knows what he wants. Natalie's and Marco's characters both grow throughout the story and their chemistry is super hot.

    While I do agree that the ending was abruptly finished, I think the story was leading there anyway. I also liked the epilogue.

    Will read others by the same author.

    Loved this book!

    I read this book in one day and loved it!! Marco's character was so alpha male it was almost funny. He had a hard time admitting his feelings and it was such a joy to see him try and address his feelings while trying to maintain a cavalier attitude. Had a good plot and loved his character.

    Marco's redemption

    Marco came across as more aggressively controlling than what i expect in a D/s read. I.do not like when alphas use their hands on a woman's throat. Especially when they are in a rage or angry.

    The ending is strangely chopped short. The author did not make much attempt at in depth explorations of Marco or Ava's personal issues.

    The book was never the less an entertaing read but not a D/s read.

    Love the book but.....

    I really enjoy the author's books but... i think she writes about women in the past. I mean the heroine was 24 with no job, car, higher education, or prospects and she lives with her mom. What age does she live in it seems she was just waiting for a man to swoop her up. It seems so unrealistic for this day and age.

    Needs more

    This book starts out well, but ends badly. The main characters traits flip flop in the middle of the story which makes you feel confused. It also has one of the most rushed endings that I have read ex 8 months later (2 pages) then years later (another few pages) then end of book. Not really a good read.

    Couldn't put it down

    Wow! This was a great book. I agree with the other reviewers - the ending felt abrupt and the gap in the story feels like a cheat. Otherwise, a tremendously steamy read that made me turn around and find more by Ms. Chance!

    It was very good-- Easy read but the ending was too rushed. I would like to know more about the Kennedys and h the story between them and Marco (book about the Kennedy). Lynda Chance books are always very good.
