A sexy enemies-to-lovers standalone, rich with masquerades, billionaires and forbidden trysts!
When the invitation arrived, it detailed the rules of the masquerade--no names, no identities.
I set one more--find a most wicked man for one night, the kind who'll bring me deliciously naughty pleasure.
But as the clock ticks to midnight, he finds me, whisks me away to a secret alcove, and delivers all that dirty bliss and then some, leaving me craving more. We make arrangements for another secret rendezvous.
Only fate has other plans, since I run into him the next morning. Turns out the stranger at the ball is the billionaire owner of the hotel across the Strip from mine.
My rival. My enemy.
The last thing I'll do is let the brilliant, mercurial man who wants a piece of my business into my bed again.
But when he throws down a daring, risqué bet. I have to decide if I want to raise the stakes.
Or walk away...

Cole Donovan, along with his business partner British-born Daniel Stewart, have just opened The Invitation, the newest hotel on the Vegas strip, directly across from the Carmichael family owned The Extravagant Hotel. A black-tie masquerade ball at The Invitation finds Cole and Daniel seducing a masked yet unidentifiable Sage, resulting in the awkward morning after meeting between Vegas competitors. Competitors in business and the boardroom but lovers on the side, Cole and Sage’s relationship turns into something more but not before the threesome continue to heat up the bedroom with their sexual desires.
