She was independent but going against his orders could get her killed.
Sharlee Armstrong is happy spending her professional life in seclusion as Vapor, a highly sought out independent information broker. Though she has plenty of high paying clients, the offer from Reynaud & Associates piques her curiosity. During the interview, her libido is also piqued when she meets Jacquard Reynaud—gorgeous, sexy, and dominant.
The job, not just the boss, intrigues her and she accepts the offer. But things spiral out of control, and she finds her reputation, livelihood, and life in jeopardy. Jac and the rest of the alpha males on her new team demand she keep a low profile, but she has other ideas.
The minute she steps foot into his office, and life, Jac knows he has to have Sharlee, but first he must keep her safe—not just from some unknown threat, but from Sharlee herself. He loves her sass but worries that she’ll find herself in real trouble if he cannot keep her under control. So, despite her protests, he takes her in hand. For her own good.
Will she ever learn to let Jac protect her? Can she let Jac and the rest of the team into her previously quiet, mostly solitary life?

She heard another sound and knew without looking that it was the man she dreamed about and craved. Jac had found her and she smiled when she imagined what he was thinking. She was walking on the treadmill, the woman who didn’t exercise except the minimum needed to stay minimally fit.
The sound changed, but he made no move to speak to her. Jac was a rather impatient man when things weren’t going his way. He’d climbed on his universal machine and had begun repetitions. She loved to watch his muscles ripple. He wasn’t yet forty and his sweaty well-defined body would create cream in hers every time.
She surreptitiously cut her eyes in the direction of the sound and saw him staring at her, working his body. His cock was at half-mast. How, she had no idea, but he was aroused even when he was exercising. He didn’t falter in his movements but continued to keep his eyes on her. She looked away and then back again. God she wanted him, cared about him. How was she going to tell him what she needed while he rocked her boat so completely?
Her step hesitated and then she stumbled as she tried to regain control. The machine shut down and his hand was on her, stabilizing her. Sharlee looked up into his eyes and there was a whole conversation there. He wanted her, cared for her, hoped they could work it out—all displayed in those eyes. There was also the protectiveness, a fierceness of ownership, a hint of control that he could never leave behind completely.
This was Jac, her man. The one she’d have to leave if things didn’t change enough. And it would kill her.
International best-selling author, Alyssa Bailey, is a dyed in the wool Texan living amongst the beauty of Southeast Alaska. She lives where the sky meets the mountains; the mountains touch the ocean, and the wildlife frolic on land, sea, and air. Humans, the ultimate interlopers, are wedged in where allowed and are properly thankful for the privilege.
Alyssa loves writing about consensual power exchanges between strong, intelligent, sassy women who are not afraid to make a stand and men confident enough to give his woman space, but Alpha enough to keep her safe in spite of herself.
If she can throw a little mystery, humor, and suspense in her stories, it’s even better. She writes about historical and contemporary love.
