“Don’t challenge the devil, sweetheart, if you can’t handle
hell.”

The plan was simple: Find a wife. Get married. Produce an heir.

Simple, yes. That doesn’t mean Brian has to like it. He reluctantly
agrees to his sister’s drastic measure of placing a ‘wife-for-hire’ ad.

What he doesn’t expect to find is a smart-mouthed, infuriating woman who
makes him think of sixty-nine other things he wants to do with her and marrying
her isn’t one of them.

Eshana is far from Brian’s idea of a perfect wife, and their five-minute
interview ends with ‘arrogant ass’ right before she storms out of his
boardroom.

But the universe isn’t quite done with them yet. Their paths cross,
sinfully so and with each meet, the sexual tension burns hotter than a volcano
about to erupt.

Only, Brian’s resolve to get the feisty beauty into his bed, hits a
curveball when Eshana’s enticing pencil skirt and high heels now comes with the
title: Your newly hired assistant.

How much temptation can a man endure before he’s allowed to take his
employee across her desk?

in the coastal city of Durban, South Africa, she now lives in the City of Gold,
Johannesburg. Charlene’s days are an energetic mixture of a full time job, a
wife and mom to two beautiful kids, three dogs and three cats. She holds a law
degree and is a passionate events manager.

Charlene enjoys
travelling, a Mediterranean cruise being her most recent venture. She hopes to
retire to a beautiful seaside cottage where she can spend lazy days on the
beach drinking cocktails and focus all her energy on writing. She is of the
firm opinion that one should not give up on a dream but rather make every
attempt to get there no matter how long it takes.

Her love for
writing stemmed from an avid interest in English at School, more so Literature
and enjoyed writing short stories. She attempted her first full length novel
fifteen years ago and although she loved the finish product decided she’d write
mainly as a hobby and only recently sought publishing.

Believing
writing is the wings to holistic escapism, she makes the time in her busy
schedule giving life to her dreams of bringing together passion filled heroes
and heroines in a happily ever after.

Blurb:
Rock royalty.
That’s what people call me.
But all it took was a single phone call to bring me to my knees.
Five years later, my life has changed irrevocably forever.
Though someone lurks in the shadows threatening to tear all that I love apart.
An obsession of the worst kind.
Can I keep the woman I love safe?
Or will everything burn to ash…
Australian author MLJ Quigg – lives in NSW, Australia, with her husband, three adult children, and six cats—yes, you heard that right, six.
Growing up in a huge family of eight kids was always noisy and didn’t give her enough alone time to unwind.
Books have always given her an outlet from the craziness that is her life. Nothing is better than curling up with a good story to take her mind off her surroundings.
As a new author, she hopes you enjoy her stories and helps you get out of your world and into hers for a few hours.

Amy clears her throat to stop us from talking.
As soon as she has our attention, she takes in a deep breath and starts talking, “Guys, there’s no easy way to say this, so I am just going to say it straight out… I’m dropping one of my jobs. Being the publicist and the stylist is taking too much out of me. I need help. With me being on crutches, I can’t stand for long periods of time, so I have hired someone to take over the stylist position. I’ve been in contact with Layla, and she’s helped me pick the perfect person. I know you’re going to love who we have chosen.”
I can understand Amy’s reasoning, she’s having a hard time lately with her broken leg, and she hasn’t looked well for a couple of weeks now—she’s been pale and slow. I know it must be hard on her to do two jobs, especially when she’s incapacitated. I mean, she can easily do the publicist job off her feet because all she has to do is post statuses on the different social media platforms and tell the fans what’s going on.
Well, perhaps, she does a bit more than that, but it’s not something she has to do where she will need to stand for long periods. I know as our stylist, she will need to stand, and I am more than happy she took the initiative in getting a replacement, but I just wish she’d asked us first. We would have liked to be involved in the hiring. It’s for us, after all.
“What the fuck, Ames. Don’t you think you should have run it past us first before hiring someone?” Andrew practically yells at her.
Grey straightens his shoulders and steps over to Amy. She puts her hand on his arm to placate him, and he physically relaxes under her hold.
“Sorry, Ames, that was uncalled for. I just wished you’d spoken to us before you hired someone.” Andrew sighs. He knows his tone of voice was uncalled for—it’s not what he said but the way he said it.
Even I am shocked by Andrew’s outburst. I have never heard Andrew use that tone of voice toward Amy before. I study Andrew carefully, and he appears worn out. He honestly doesn’t look well.
“I agree with Andrew, though. Why did you hire someone before talking to us? I understand one hundred percent that you need the help, and I’m happy you want to pass that job onto someone else, just not that you never discussed it with any of us.” Cooper shrugs and then asks, “So, when do we get to meet the person you hired?”
“Right now.”
That voice! I only ever hear that voice on the phone, so I spin around on my chair and stand as quickly as I can. The vision of the woman I’ve been obsessing over comes into view from the bedroom behind us. My heart rate triples in my chest, and my stomach churns while my mouth dries up like the Sahara Desert. My palms become clammy and sweat beads on my forehead.
Standing on shaky legs, I must look like a tool gaping at Layla in shock.
I am ecstatic to see her.
I am dumbfounded she’s finally here, in person.
My excitement at seeing her soon wears off, and I run, the happy smile can’t be wiped off my face for all the money in the world. I pick her up and cradle this beautiful woman in my arms, hugging her tightly, holding her to me. She feels so good in my arms like she’s my home, and I can’t be any happier than I am at this moment. Except perhaps, taking her directly to the bedroom because my cock has a mind of its own and has become tight behind the zipper of my jeans.
“It’s so good to see you in person,” I whisper in her ear.
She holds me just as tightly as she whispers back, “Me, too. It’s been a long time coming.”
That it has.
I can’t believe Layla’s here.
In person.
Yeah, I know I’ve said it before, but I am so excited.
Layla’s the other half of my soul.
I know that.
She may not know it yet, but she will. You can mark my words on that. Layla Matthews will be mine.
I draw back and look down to take her in completely.
She’s stunning. Absolutely stunning.
Layla’s wearing a black bodysuit that covers her hourglass figure showcasing her flat stomach, tits, ass, and hips, and they are showing very, very well.
Holy shit! She’s fucking hot.
Layla has her wavy chocolate-brown hair cascades down her back to her waist. She’s even better in person. Let’s face it, I have been cataloging all her features that I’ve already seen on the screen of my phone or laptop. The small button nose, high cheekbones, heart-shaped face, and unique aqua eyes shine with happiness as she takes me in as well. I can see her gaze taking in all of me. A flare of heat comes from her eyes when they sparkle back to mine, then she takes on a shocked appearance. I don’t think she meant for me to see it, but I will take that look anytime she wants to give it to me.
I am tapped on the shoulder and practically pushed out of the way as Cooper grabs Layla by the shoulders and hugs her tightly.

Luke Redding’s military background is an asset when it comes to managing The Retreat, but it hasn’t helped him find the submissive he longs for. A secluded life in the New Forest, witnessing a stream of happy couples playing out their fantasies, doesn’t provide much opportunity to develop a relationship either. When a friend’s manipulations lead to him taking on silver-haired Skye as a trainee sub, Luke finds it hard to trust in his own ability to provide the guidance Skye needs.

Skye Ingham wants to explore his submissive nature but the noise and crowds at The Underground are overwhelming. He can’t believe his luck to be taken under Luke’s wing and offered a job at The Retreat. As Luke tests his boundaries, Skye trusts him implicitly, but how can he convince his new Dominant to have faith in himself?

Amid the bustle and excitement of a big house party at The Retreat, Luke and Skye edge their way towards a deeper understanding of each other’s needs and desires. But it will take a final leap of faith to secure their future and open a path to love.

 

Excerpt

It wasn’t dignified, but Luke twisted around in his seat to take a look at his potential employee as he wound his way between the tables. He hadn’t formed an impression of what Skye might look like, but the reality was better than anything Luke’s imagination could have conjured. Skye was slight, delicate, maybe five feet six or seven, no more. His skin was lightly tan, a coloring that Luke guessed came from his heritage rather than the sun. He had no tattoos that Luke could see and considering that all he wore was a short leather kilt, that didn’t leave much room to hide any. The wavy hair Luke had assumed was pale blond was in fact silver-gray, though the boy’s eyelashes and brows were a much darker shade, which made Luke wonder if the silver was natural.

Skye stopped in front of the table facing Luke and Carey. He clasped his hands behind his back and ducked his head. “Gordy said you wanted to see me, Mr. Hoffman.” Skye’s voice was so soft Luke had to concentrate to catch his words.

“I did, Skye. You remember I spoke to you about a job at The Retreat in Hampshire?”

Nodding, Skye darted a quick look at Luke. Luke caught a glimpse of violet-blue eyes before Skye focused his gaze on the carpet once more.

“Well, this is Mr. Redding. He’s in charge of The Retreat. I want you to wait on us over lunchtime and show him what you can do.”

“Hello, Skye,” Luke said, keeping his voice low and trying to project reassurance. “I hear you’ve had excellent training. We have a mixture of guests staying at The Retreat, but they all have something in common. They love their food. We have a dedicated chef and customers can pick their own menus and eat as much as they want. That means a lot of serving both at table and in the guests’ rooms. Do you think you can handle that?”

Skye scuffed his bare toes into the carpet. “Yes, Sir.”

“And you understand that The Retreat caters for men who are in the BDSM lifestyle, just like here at the club?” Skye nodded and a light pink flush bloomed on his cheekbones. “Sometimes, you might be required to wear very little or nothing at all. Does that worry you?”

“No, Sir.” Skye’s response was barely audible.

Luke wanted to make eye contact with the shy young man but Skye kept his gaze lowered.

“Remove your kilt, Skye,” Carey ordered.

Luke tightened his grip on his drink. He expected Skye to bolt but instead he undid the buckle at his hip, let the leather garment drop to the floor then stepped out of it.

“Hands behind your back,” Carey instructed.

Luke glanced around the restaurant. Almost every man in the place had turned to watch. Skye stood absolutely still, clad only in the mesh thong that was issued to all the serving staff at The Underground to wear under their kilts.

“Fetch two menus, please.”

Luke watched, entranced, as Skye walked away, hips swaying. He might as well have been naked for all the coverage his underwear gave him. He had natural grace and if it weren’t for the slight tension in his shoulders, Luke might have believed he was entirely comfortable following Carey’s orders.

“You’re testing him. Why?” Luke didn’t take his eyes away from Skye as he collected two menus and returned to the table.

“Because you need to be confident that he will do as you ask, when he’d prefer to run and hide.”

“He’s attracting a lot of attention.”

“Are you surprised?”

“Not at all. He’s stunning.”

Carey’s smile turned into a smirk. “Then you can handle him from now on.”

Jo Michaels loves writing novels that make readers gasp in horror, surprise, and disbelief.

While her browser search history has probably landed her on a list somewhere, she still dives into every plot with gusto, hoping “the man” will realize she’s a writer and not a psychopath about to go on a rampage. Her favorite pastimes are reading, watching Investigation Discovery, and helping other authors realize their true potential through mentoring. She’s penned the award-winning Pen Pals and Serial Killers series and the best-selling educational book for children, Writing Prompts for Kids, which has rocketed the kids that use it into several awards of their own.

Most of Jo’s books feature the places she’s lived: Louisiana, Tennessee, and Georgia. That’s given her a special amount of insight to what makes those locations tick. Her works are immersive and twisty, and she wouldn’t want it any other way.
