With endless wealth comes irresistible temptation . . .
It’s an undisputed fact that Nash Beaumont is the hottest of the Beaumont brothers. His slow, sensual smile charms every French Kiss employee-and tempts every woman to buy the company’s lingerie. But beneath Nash’s raw charisma is a dark, kinky side that he struggles to control . . . a side that may be exposed by one lovely-and unexpectedly adventurous woman.
Reporter Eden Huckabee needs a story. And when she discovers Nash’s dirty little secret, she thinks she’s found it. But Eden doesn’t count on Nash turning the tables on her-or that she will fall so deeply for this unbelievably sexy, one-in-a-billion Beaumont.
There was a slight hesitation before she answered. “My friend got me into it.”
Another pause. “Actually, she is a pretty good friend. She’s one of those people who sees the glass as always being full—like to the brim.”
“And you’re not?”
“I wouldn’t say that. I see the glass as half-full, and it’s my job to get the water to the top.”
He laughed. “You sound like my oldest brother. He views everything as his job.”
She joined in with his laughter. It was a hearty laugh, almost too loud for a woman. But he liked it. He liked its sincerity and lack of inhibition. “You figured me out,” she said. “I am the oldest. I have two younger brothers. Both pains in the butt.”
“I think that’s the job of younger brothers.”
“Is your younger brother a pain?”
The smile wilted on his face. “I didn’t say I had a younger brother.”
“Oh,” she said. “I guess I just assumed you had another brother when you were talking about your oldest brother.”
The tension left his shoulders. But the scare was a strong reminder that he had no business sharing information with the woman. “No more talking,” he said. “Take off your dress.”
“In the dark? But how will you see?”
He got up from the chair. “I’ll use my imagination.”
There was a long pause, and he wondered if she would leave. Physical force played no part in the equation, but he couldn’t help getting up and positioning himself between her and the door. There was a whisper of material.
“It’s off,” she said.
