This full length novel is the second story in USA Today Bestselling author Carole Mortimer’s HOT new ALPHA series. Sizzling contemporary romance with an added dash of danger.
Stories of dark and compelling ALPHA men, who are used to taking what they want when they want it, and the strong and determined women who have no intention of being taken. Unless it’s on their own terms...
Lucien Wynter made a decision 15 years ago to distance himself from his violent past. He has spent those intervening years quietly and ruthlessly building his own business empire and amassing his own private fortune, while at the same time remaining aloof from all emotional entanglements. If he physically wants a woman, then he takes one. Beautiful sensuous women, who never mean anything more to him than that fleeting physical release.
Until Nicky McKenzie...
Beautiful. Fiery. Elusive Nicky McKenzie.
Lucien had never calculated on meeting and desiring a woman like Nicky McKenzie. The woman he now wants in his bed, no holds barred. The woman he can’t seem to forget. But also, he discovers too late, the one woman capable of bringing his violent past crashing down about his ears...
Nicky McKenzie just wants to live her life in quiet obscurity. Unnoticed. Invisible. And for five years she had succeeded in doing exactly that.
Until Lucien Wynter...
Cold. Compelling. Ruthless Lucien Wynter.
Was it chance the two of them had met, or just the cruelty of fate? Whichever it was, the desire between Lucien and Nicky is instant. Explosive. Unforgettable. A desire that becomes as necessary to both of them as breathing, as they indulge and lose themselves in each and every one of their desires for each other.
But both of them are hiding secrets. Secrets that, once told, could destroy each other.
Author’s Note: The novellas and full-length novels in the ALPHA series have sexier situations and more adult language that my other books.
