Eclipse of the Heart
Blurb: Amanda Thompson is offered her dream job as a junior executive at a Manhattan venture firm. The terms are a little vague, but she has a seriously ill sister to provide for, and her new boss is a seriously attractive man. Failure is not an option, so she’ll keep her eye on the prize, and her heart and body out of the mix…despite the boss’s overly personal interest in her.
Logan Winter is a hard-driving business tycoon who likes his sex life hot and his emotional life cold. His new high-end call girl is a little different from the ordinary bimbos who fill the role. That’s okay, since he’s ready for different. Even discovering the mistake that’s been made is okay, because he knows how to get what he wants…and he wants Amanda.
Excerpt: Logan slid away from Amanda on the king-sized bed. The movement was automatic, a habit of necessity. Women liked to cling, and he couldn’t bear it.
In a few minutes, he would try to take her again. But for now, he needed his own space.
“Is something wrong?” Her clear voice pierced the dark silence of his bedroom.
“No.” He closed his eyes, knowing he was shutting her out completely, but helpless to change his behavior. “Give me a few minutes.”
She moved. He heard the whisper of her body on the sheet.
“I need to go,” she said, her voice low.
He would never ask a woman to stay. But—”I want you again,” he said. He almost reached out a hand.
But, no. He couldn’t do it. Emotions were poisonous.
She sat up. “I can’t stay.”
He heard the uncertainty in her voice, and understood it. She needed reassurance. Hugs and kisses would be best, but that wasn’t his style.
He turned on his side and propped himself up on an elbow. “We still haven’t done slow and easy,” he said.
She gave a muffled giggle. “I bet you’ve never done slow and easy.”
He smiled, though he knew she couldn’t see it in the dark. “Now that’s a challenge. Just what I like.”
Suddenly, his need for her was greater than his need for separateness. He reached across the gulf between them.
“Let me show you,” he said.
