A woman I’ve never seen before just told her father I’m her boyfriend.
I walked into the restaurant to grab dinner between important meetings and there she was, red cheeked and fury in her electric blue eyes.
I figure I’ll help her out with whatever she has going on with her father, so I kiss her.
If she wants to be what’s on my menu, that’s fine by me.
As she melts into my arms, the taste of her lips and the fire in her eyes hits me in the gut.
This might be a game to her, but I’m playing for real. And trust me when I say I never lose.
I’m going to use my vast wealth and power to get her exactly where I want her.
Who knows, I might even tell her who I really am.

Hard Push (Darcy)
“Welcome to the Fat Kok,” the hostess says, only glancing up from her clipboard long enough to give us a look of disapproval.
“We have a reservation for seven. We’re a little late,” my father says, his Rolex dangling from his scrawny wrist as he gestures to the hostess.
We’re a lot late, forty-five minutes to be exact. But punctuality never matters to my father. He kept all of us senior executives late for a pointless meeting.
The real reason for this torture is the date. April third. The date my parents’ divorce was finalized. Fifteen years ago. And we’re still marking the occasion.
“You have to wait for a table. Ten minutes. Maybe twenty.” She still hasn’t stopped studying her clipboard.
“That’s the best? Do you know what a loyal customer I am? We had a reservation.”
