Series:

Can you find love when you no longer know who you are?

Anastasia Renaldi’s life is a lie. In one fell swoop, she loses her job, her family, and her very identity. Can she truly be the illegitimate daughter of the long-dead Michael Worth?

Attorney Gavin Westmore knows two things—how much Worth Luxury Goods is worth, and that his new client is a gold-digger. But as long as he can collect his fee, what does he care how calculating and devious she is?

After numerous meetings that turn into late nights that turn into even more, he starts to uncover the hurt and confused woman Stasia is underneath. If part of this company rightfully belongs to her, he has no doubts she’ll be a valuable asset.

But once they’re done untangling the web of deceit that brought them here, will there be any room left in her life for love?

Excerpt

“Let me go.” The curvy, wet bundle of pissed-off woman struggled against his hold, her backside brushing against his front, sending a fresh surge of lust straight through him. Obliterating the anger and absolute frustration he’d felt toward her only minutes ago.

Irritating as hell, this connection he had with Stasia. Gavin didn’t understand it. Couldn’t ignore it no matter how much he wanted to.

“You’re mad.” He hauled her close, his mouth just above her ear. “What I said was really shitty.”

“Terribly shitty,” she agreed. The more emotional she became, the thicker her accent grew. It was sexy as hell.

“I was angry. You’ve put me in a spot I really don’t want to be in.” If she didn’t stop rubbing that delectable ass against him, he was going to lose it.

“I’m sorry.” She stiffened, tension radiating from her in not-so-subtle waves. “I’ve been put in the same spot, you know. And I’m not happy about it either.”

“I know.” Really, he did. Taking a deep breath, he decided to do what normally didn’t come naturally for him. Apologize. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to upset you.” He loosened his grip on her but still kept her close, enjoying her wet, warm skin pressed to his. His hands rested just below her breasts and without thought he lifted his thumb, caressing the underside of her breast.

She jerked against him. “Stop it.”

“Stop what?” He pulled her with him further out, till both of them were treading water, the waves rocking them back and forth. She felt good nestled against him. He’d wanted to strangle her when she admitted what she’d told her mother. It felt like this entire case was nothing but lies piled on top of lies.

Yet here he was, falling into her seductive trap. Funny how he found her even more attractive when she was madder than hell at him. He never knew he was such a sadist.

“Stop—touching me.”

He swiped his thumb slowly across her nipple, felt the bit of flesh harden beneath his touch. He was a complete jerk for doing this to her, but he couldn’t seem to stop.

“I can’t help it. Every time I get near you, I need to put my hands on you.” He gave her a little squeeze. “Maybe this isn’t such a bad idea after all, pretending we’re together.”

“I thought you hated it.”

“I don’t like lying to your mother. I don’t like lying to anyone.” He drew his finger upward, along the outer edge of her breast, to trace the string that tied at the back of her neck. “It’s not such a hardship, though. Touching you, wanting to be close to you.”
