Description: Stacia Lewis is all about control. In the dog-eat-dog world of corporate advertising, it's the only means of survival. But in her personal life, she's looking for something different.
Placing a classified in search of a man willing to give her an introduction to the world of bondage, Stacia knows being surprised is part of the package. What she hasn't counted on, however, is who might respond to her ad.
Stacia knows appearances can be deceiving, that what you see is rarely what you get. But how can her colleague and rival Will Sutton be anything but the self-centered chauvinist she sees in the office every day? And is Will really going to be the one to show her the ropes?

Her palm stung before she even registered slapping him. Humiliated, she grabbed her purse and stormed out, the too-high heels attempting to break her ankles on the polished marble of the foyer.
"Knew you wouldn't see it through."
Stacia froze, hand on the door handle. "I would have."
"If it wasn't me." His voice came from too close. She whirled around to find him practically standing on top of her. "That's an excuse and you know it."
"You would have chickened out regardless."
"You're so full of yourself, aren't you?"
"For good reason." He smirked, eyes raking over her. "It's a shame. I thought you might surprise me."
"I'd be surprised if you thought about anything but yourself."
"Get over yourself, Stacia. You wanted a hookup, someone who could scratch your itches in some pretty kinky ways. I know what you want, and I know how to give it to you. How am I any different from the faceless guy you were talking to online?"
"Because I know you, and you're a jackass."
"Who's to say the guy you picked up with your ad wouldn't have been, too?" He trailed his fingers down her bare arm, making her skin break out in gooseflesh. "At least with me, you know what you're getting."
"Apparently, I don't." It shouldn't be so hard to speak.
He chuckled. "You're the one who's always calling me a pig and a pervert. I'm an open book, sweetheart. It's you who's got all the hidden depths." He leaned closer. "And I'd really like to be the one to help you figure out how deep you go."
His voice and his liquid chocolate eyes were captivating, making her forget why she was protesting. "How did you know it was me?"
