Becoming Governor isn't in the cards for billionaire and former D.A. Jackson Pierce unless he can squelch the unsavory rumors flying around. He's not ashamed of his bad boy past being a dominant at a BDSM club, but he knows the revelation could ruin his political career before it even begins.
He's skeptical of his campaign advisor's idea--find a do-gooder wife to give him a more respectable image--until he meets Rose Turner, a former foster kid working in a local community center. Compassionate, feisty and passionate about helping troubled youth, she's perfect for his needs. But as they get to know one another, his feelings for her grow all too real.
Rose Turner can't take another heartbreak, not after being abandoned by everyone she ever loved. When she accepts Jackson's proposal, she vows to keep her distance, but the more she gets to know him, the more she wants to let him in. But trust doesn't come easy--if he wants it, he'll have to earn it.
As the two draw closer, threats roll in: if Jackson doesn't flip on education reform, a blackmailer will expose the fake marriage, ruining his career and tarnishing Rose's reputation. But if he gives in, funding for the community center will be cut, and Rose's kids will lose it all. With everything on the line, he must make an impossible decision as the clock runs down.
What's a man of principle to do when everything he believes in falls apart?
"Seems you do well with fake girlfriends," I finally said.
I laughed nervously.
"That's different. You're different."
"It's just the other side of the same coin, isn't it? Passion without a relationship, or a relationship without passion..."
What was wrong with me? Why couldn't I just shut up already?
Jackson looked at me again, his brow furrowed.
"I wanted to make you happy tonight."
"Don't you see, Rose?"
His voice was low and dangerous. He leaned forward and ran his thumb over my cheek, his touch electric.
"I didn't have to. I know what this is, but I needed to make you happy tonight."
He was so close now, I worried he could hear the frantic beating of my heart.
"What are you doing to me?"
His hand moved down to my neck, his fingers trailing down my skin. I whimpered, looking into those dark eyes of his, his words echoing my own thoughts. What were we doing? What was this attraction that was so hard to resist, despite our best intentions?
His fingers wrapped in my hair, and he tilted my head back roughly. I gasped.
"What are you fucking doing to me?"
His voice was rough, raw, his eyes glinting like a predator's. Before I could say anything, his lips were on my neck, his tongue tasting me, making my whole body quake. He held me captive, but I didn't want to escape. When his hand snuck up my thigh beneath the hem of my dress, I groaned, my body already wet for him.
My restraint was gone, left back on the dance floor of the bar, and I reached for him, running my hands up his chest, loving the feel of his hard muscles beneath my fingers.
He growled in my ear.
"I want you, Rose."
I whimpered as his hand crept higher. His fingers brushed my panties, making me squirm against the leather upholstery. His mouth met mine, his teeth rasping over my lips. He bit down, and I moaned.
