Entrepreneur Smith MacLean is obsessed with Alessandra Soriano, a woman he met briefly who disappeared six months ago. After a shocking reunion at Club Kink, he insists she stay with him. He means to find out where she’s been.
Alessandra walked away from her life after making a mistake that cost everything. Her self-imposed penance is living in poverty and doing questionable things with questionable people. Now she’s in Smith’s luxurious condo, under his hand, and obeying his rules.
He has thirty days to convince her to come back from limbo. She has thirty days to convince him she needs to be forgotten. Unless the flames of lust consume them first.

“Did you not sleep well?”
“I never do when I’m not in my own bed.” Petulance? Perhaps. Smith deserved her ire.
He snickered. “That crappy excuse for a mattress at your old home could hardly be called a bed, and you should’ve been more concerned with your safety since the room didn’t even have a lock.” His glare lessened a fraction. “Perhaps you can take a nap.”
“That was my problem yesterday—I slept too much during the afternoon. I just want to go back to your place.”
“Why don’t we have lunch first?” He steered her toward a bistro.
“If that would please you.” Her response was listless. She wasn’t hungry and wouldn’t eat, but if this would get him off her back, she could survive. In truth, she had no choice.
He slowed his pace and turned to look down at her. “Maybe we can stop by Indigo on our way home, and you can select several books.”
The joy was instantaneous. “Really? Oh, that would be wonderful. I haven’t had a new book in—” She halted, catching herself.
“Six months?” He completed the sentence.
“Well, eat a full lunch, and maybe we’ll add a couple more.”
Maybe a meal wouldn’t hurt. If that meant she got a book, maybe it’d be worth it.
