ABOUT THE MILLIONAIRE’S REVENGE
Real estate tycoon Luke McCall has a plan to take down the underhanded competitor messing with his livelihood. He intends to romance the man’s daughter, gain her trust, and get the information he needs to put his rival out of business once and for all. He just didn’t plan for the way she makes him feel.
Grace Wilson is tired of men using her smarts, social position, or her father’s status for their personal gain. It’s time for a new philosophy: Test. Screw. Dump. But after she meets Luke, she’s not sure she’ll be able to walk away. Not only is he sexy and charming, but he survives every test she puts him through. But can she trust a guy who seems too good to be true?
Luke sat in one of the chairs in the Metropolitan Opera lobby to check on the hockey game. As he watched, his phone buzzed with a text from Grace.
Where are you? The old guy next to me is hitting on me. Or maybe he’s fallen asleep. Can’t tell, but he’s leaning his head on my shoulder—either asleep or trying to look down my dress.
He chuckled. I’ll be right there to rescue you with wine. Maybe I should ask for a 16 oz. to-go cup.
I like the way you think. Meet you in the lobby. Let’s blow this popcorn stand. The old guy can drool on somebody else.
You didn’t mention drool. I think I need to kick his ass.
I’ll steal his walker just in case he’s feistier than he looks.
She slumped into his arms dramatically after she rushed out the door. “We need to make a quick exit before the old man comes looking for me and you have to defend my honor. It must be that push-up bra I bought. The old guy couldn’t help himself.”
How could he have such a great time with somebody he thought was out to get him?
“Wanna hit Chinatown for dinner?”
“We’re a little overdressed, but I’m starving. Maybe boredom makes me hungry.”
Luke grasped her arm and scrutinized her face. “Wasn’t it your idea to come here in the first place?”
She shook her head and smiled. “It’s a long and sordid tale I’d rather not tell unless I’m drunk or naked—or some combination of the two. Let’s say I learned my lesson and leave it at that.”
ABOUT WENDY BYRNE
Wendy has a Masters in Social Work and worked in the child welfare field for twelve years before she decided to pursue her dream of writing.
Between teaching college classes, trying to get her morbidly obese cat to slim down, and tempering the will of her five-year-old granddaughter, who’s determined to become a witch when she turns six so she can fly on her broom to see the Eiffel Tower and put hexes on people—not necessarily in that order—somehow Wendy still manages to fit in writing. She spends the remainder of her days inflicting mayhem on her hero and heroine until they beg for mercy.
