Syeesha Green’s miserable luck has finally changed. Not only has she landed a good job as a personal assistant to a high-profile socialite, but she has a new romance with her handsome law school classmate, Christian Chambers. Life couldn’t be better. Jade McCann knew the second she laid eyes on Syeesha that the young woman would be the perfect employee. Broke, beautiful, and naive, she was just the kind of woman Jade needed to carry out her plan. Now all Jade needs to do is convince Syeesha to seduce her husband so they can both score a lucrative pay day. When Syeesha discovers why she was really hired, will she sacrifice her new romance–and her dignity–to secure a fortune? Or has she learned some tricks from her cunning new boss to keep her character, her cash, and her man?

“What makes you think I’m going to fall behind?”
He shrugged, his shoulders moving up and down so slightly that she almost missed it. Looking at him conjured a long-ago memory of a lone Boston terrier that had sat on the sidewalk and seduced her with its sad eyes while she had eaten in an outdoor section of a Mexican restaurant. She was a sucker for puppy-dog eyes.
“Tell you what,” she said. “Let me think about it.”
“If it’ll make you feel better, maybe you and I can study together. Just the two of us.”
Ah, now they were getting to the main objective.
“Christian,” she chided. “Are you asking me out on a date?”
His lips curved into a loose smile, his eyes floating about the corridor before gliding back to her. Was it possible she was having an effect on this guy?
