Description: After leaving the downward spiral of Bremerton and settling in Seattle, Katina Mead has finally landed her dream job of working in Chef Toka’s restaurant. For years, she’d tried to forget about the love she’d lost when Derek left her, telling her to grow up. With a new career, good friends and a new direction, she can finally stop wishing for Derek to return for her the way he promised.

Derek Montgomery left his hometown after having a powerful sexual reaction toward Katina, the girl who made his life worth living. Knowing she wasn’t mature enough to handle a man who needed to have sexual control over another person, he ran…straight into trouble. Deemed unworthy of love, he holds on to the promise of returning to Katina. But, the woman he's always loved wants to love him in return, and doing so might destroy him.

Reader Alert!
Danger! Russ O’Reilly is one hot Secret Service Special Agent. He burns at the first touch! Caution! For Patti Penn the embers can blister and may never subside.

To My Readers:
Would you ever think the FBI would run an escort service? Not on your life. I wanted to write a story where the FBI looked like it was involved in something illegal but the twist of it was they were catching white-collar criminals. The characters are sexy, hot and passionate about their jobs. And they’re determined to catch criminals, even if their suspect is into kinky sex. Once I wrote the first book, The Client and the Call Girl, I had to bring the other sexy, hot, yet determined female FBI agents to the page. Each one has a different personality, and each one will not back down from a fight. Yet all three agents find love brings a new set of problems and a passion they’ve never felt before.

“I don’t know what you’re doing to me. No one’s ever made me feel so…needed.” She squeezed her eyes closed, then opened them. “You scare me.”
“I want you.” The lines on the bridge of his nose deepened. “I’ve explained what I’d expect from you before. That hasn’t changed.”
“I’m scared of what I’ll do if I don’t leave right now. How fucked up is that?”
“I’ll tell you now, I hate that word. You need your ass spanked.” His mouth hardened.
She snorted. “You’d enjoy that, wouldn’t you?”
“Not as much as you.” He lifted his brow, challenging her.
“Dream on,” she said.
He laughed. The first honest sound from him that she’d heard tonight. She exhaled and the tension between her shoulders eased.
The sooner they talked, the faster she’d be able to go home and think about what was happening with her. She scooted closer to the edge of the seat and turned toward Derek. He picked up her hand and held it tenderly, stroking her with his thumb.
“I can explain why you’re confused, but I rather show you.” Derek’s breath hitched. “I want you…all of you.”
She shook her head. “I don’t know what that means.”
“I know you don’t, baby.” He lifted her hand and kissed the back of her fingers. “I know what I want. I’m finally in the position to act on my feelings. I’ve never forgotten you. I can give you anything you want and need. I’ll show you pleasure you’ve only dreamed about, and take you higher than you think is possible.”
“Oh.” She pulled her arm back, but he clicked his tongue stopping her. “Oh. I see.”
He continued to caress her hand. “Tell me in your own words what I want.”
“Sex. That’s all I am to you. You’re rich and have an ego taller than the Space Needle, and for some reason you think I’ll melt at your feet because you’ve spoken the right words.” She shrugged. “Like you’ve said, I grew up, and I’m not the same starry eyed young girl crushing on you anymore.”
He chuckled. “You certainly have learned to lie. I’m not playing a game. I don’t want a weekend play date. I want you and me to fill the void. I’ve become accustomed to the finer things in life, Katina. Money will buy me a woman, any woman, to see to my sexual needs. I want more. I want you, twenty-four/seven.”
“That’s fu—”
He tapped her mouth with his finger. “I believe I told you not to say that word.”
“Sorry.” She bit down on the inside of her cheek.
“I’ll demand complete obedience, in bed, out of bed. In return, I’ll give you everything you need to make me happy.”
