When "the scentless" Elena thought she would be laid off by her manager, she never expected her new billionaire boss to be her high school crush Charles....Manager: "Sir, I think there's been a mistake. How is she staying? And I'm not? This isn't right.""You're right," Charles said, leaning forward over the table. "I'm sorry Elena. I forgot to mention you aren't going to be working here either."Manager's face set into a smug smirk."You'll be joining my team."There was a simultaneous gasp around the room.View More
Charles' car was snaking through the streets toward the office, having taken me first home and then waited for me to throw on some fresh clothes before heading out. Here and there, crowds were moving in packs down the sidewalk toward city hall, protest signs tucked under their arms. It had been five days, and still the crowds were growing.Charles was on his phone with other Alphas from different cities and I was talking quietly to Cathy, trying not to disturb his conversation."But are
Glass walls and skylights let the stars and a sliver of moonlight into his bedroom, which was otherwise all greys and blacks. His bed was vast, and the perfect mixture of firm with soft on top and my body sank gratefully in next to him.I reached out, feeling the warmth and smoothness of his naked torso across the soft sheets. I was about to scoot over to nestle against him when I heard deep breathing that made me pause.I raised myself on my elbow to look and saw, to my surprise, that h
It was dark, and I could see very little of the home that Charles' driver was approaching, though I saw the gates open and could make out at least three stories of flowing glass and warm-colored wood inside. There appeared to be stone walls and underfoot as we walked up toward an enormous door."I wish you were seeing it under better circumstances," he said. "I love this place, and I want you to feel totally at home here."He pressed a code into a keypad and the door clicked open. Charle
Charles bolted off down the street, and I sprang forward instinctively as well, but then quickly realized it was pointless, as he quickly outstripped me.Instead, I crouched and removed the rock from the manila envelope and grabbed it, then straightened up as a cry came from the street in front of me.Someone had stepped out of an alley as the figure in black was running past. Both were already struggling and then slumping to the ground. When the new figure straightened up, I saw the fla
Matilda and her partner Sophia were throwing a party at a restaurant to celebrate their adoption of Charlotte, the little girl from Mrs. Addison's orphanage.It was both a gourmet restaurant for the adults but in a setting of a high-end play area for the children. They served some of the most spectacular desserts in the city, many of which featured flames or smoke, and it was the destination place for birthday parties.Charles looked handsome in a button-up shirt and trousers, casual but
He'd left early, kissing the top of my head and inhaling deeply before he went out the door of my apartment to his waiting car.He told me not to worry, that he'd been to plenty of these government meetings before and had friends there he was happy to see. He would be back that night."We have a party to go to tomorrow morning, right?" he'd said, giving my hand a final squeeze.
"I can't imagine who the mole could be, though," I said as Charles, for what seemed like the hundredth time, made me lean over and let him inspect my upper arm.We were on my couch, going over the day with a half-dozen cupcakes.I let him press his lips against the place where slight bruises had formed, loving that he rumbled in anger every time he saw them again.
"Absolutely not," Charles said."But if I take the security guard, I'll be totally fine."He glowered at me from behind his desk, looking like a displeased boss and less the sexy Alpha in an apron making a delicious cup of coffee from that morning."Matilda is already out there getting some amazing shots," Sally said.
"That was so fucking good," he said, rising on his elbows to look at me.He brushed hair away from my face and kissed me, his lips continuing to communicate the passion he'd just expressed with his words."My love," he said. "Are you okay?"I looked into his eyes, feeling his warmth still on me, encircling me, protect
