When Mack offers her a job as his assistant and model, with no strings sex as part of the deal, she’s tempted. While she’s not a submissive woman, her body craves his touch and her heart yearns to be soothed.
Can Mack ease her broken heart, or will he break it anew? Can Emma fill the void in Mack’s life and chase away the darkness that haunts his nights?

She blinked, surprised and shocked, even as she fell deeper into those silvery pools that promised the riches of heaven. “I’ve said it before, Mack. You’re blind. Or you’re feeding me a line to get me into your bed.” Holy cow, all he had to do was ask. Or turn into a caveman and toss her over his shoulder!
He smiled, his eyes crinkling. “Not that the idea doesn’t have merit, but when it comes to my art, I’m rarely wrong. I’ve wanted to capture you on film from the moment I spotted you sitting on that log. Pose for me, Emma. Right now. Call it a test, part of your job interview.”
His words sent a thrill of heat through her. It eased her bruised heart to know he found her sexy and camera-worthy. It might still be a line, and if so, it was a damn good tactic. “I don’t know how to do this. I’m not a professional.” She indicated the photos around the room.
He drew her to the bed. “You can. I’ll tell you what to do.”
Yeah, he’d been telling her what to do since he rode up on that damn Harley. She clutched the edges of her robe and blamed that bike for getting her all hot and horny, and Brad and Gina for shaking her confidence. It was time to stop this—him. “Dammit, Mack, listen to me!”
He snagged her hands, drew her close enough for his warmth and spicy male scent engulfed her. “Trust me, Emma. I know what I’m doing.” His mouth brushed hers in a gentle sweep until her lips parted. He lifted his head and smiled. “Believe in yourself, Emma.” He released her.
She touched her fingers to her mouth as he leaned over the bed to arrange pillows and wrinkle the bedding before stepping back. A sweep of an arm around her shoulders urged her closer to the bed. Holding her breath, she waited. One light push and she’d tumble onto that sexy sea of red satin.
“Off with the robe. On your side, head propped by your hand.”
“You want me naked?” Her eyes nearly bugged out. She tried to step away from both madness and fantasy because she wanted to do this, but was too afraid. Too uncertain. His body halted her retreat.
“Naked,” he said, his voice low and soft in her ear. Once again his hands were firm and warm on her shoulders as he eased the robe off. It fell in a pool at her feet.
When Mack finds Emma by the side of the road in her wedding dress, she has been devastated by her groom’s betrayal. She has no money, home or job, so Mack asks her to be his photographic model & assistant, which she does very well. He also teaches her about his BDSM lifestyle, showing her that her groom was not the man she thought. As their 3 month contract comes to an end, will Mack want her to stay? Will she decide she want more than the short contract?
I liked these two & their hero’s & heroine’s journey. The sex is hotter than Hades so keep the ice water handy.
