Getting falsely arrested feels like a scene from a bad movie for rising star Gloriana Templeton, especially when she discovers the conditions of her release: round-the-clock surveillance by world-class lawyer Griffin Blackwood-Carter. Ignoring her attraction to the sinfully sexy man who crushed her youthful heart is getting harder by the minute! Gloriana belongs to Griffin now, and when he says jump, she’d better ask how high! With a reputation founded on control, he’s determined not to lose his head over this little minx again. But he blazes white-hot every time he looks at her, and it’s burning away his couldn’t-care-less façade!

CHAPTER 1
“What are you saying, Emeline? Are you kidding me right now? Is this your idea of a joke?” Griffin Blackwood-Carter turned away from the view of the Thames outside his tenth-story office window to stare incredulously at his baby sister. She sat in one of the navy tub chairs on the visitors’ side of his desk. “Griff, you know perfectly well I wouldn’t joke about something so serious!” Emeline exclaimed, gazing at him, her eyes etched with worry. ‘I know it sounds unbelievable but it’s true, and we have to help her.” Actually, her story didn’t sound unbelievable at all, but Griffin knew his trusting sister had a tendency to see goodness in people when there was none to see at all. He turned back to stare at the pedestrians lining the Thames. He couldn’t stand seeing his sister so upset, and he cursed the so-called friend who was responsible for causing Emeline’s state. When she came to stand beside him, Griffin slung his arm around her shoulders, drawing her clo

CHAPTER 2
          Gloriana Templeton was trouble, and if seeing her bent over his father’s prized nineteenth-century desk snorting cocaine at Em’s eighteenth party wasn’t proof enough of that, then surely her attempt to smuggle drugs through Heathrow today was.          Not that Gloriana had ever admitted to taking drugs the night of his sister’s party. She’d just given him a phoney, imperious smile that had incited his temper to boiling and after that, he hadn’t wanted to hear any excuses. Why bother?          And what had made him even more irate was that earlier that night, Gloriana had looked at him with those violet-colored doe eyes of hers as if he was the only man in the world for her. And, fool that he was, he’d very nearly bought it!          Up until that poi

CHAPTER 3
          Lord Griffin Blackwood-Carter, Viscount Torrington, the future 10th Duke of Richmond, stood before her, with enough tension emanating from his body to fire a rocket to the moon.“Oh… Griffin,” she breathed unnecessarily, her mind at once accepting that he was the most sublimely handsome male she had ever seen and rejecting that fact at the same time.          He seemed taller and more powerful than she remembered, his lean, muscular physique highlighted by the precise cut of his tailor-made charcoal suit. His chestnut hair was long and lent him an untamed appeal he really didn’t need, framing his olive complexion, flawlessly chiseled jaw, and aristocratic nose to perfection.          Her gaze skimmed up over the masculine curve of his lips and settled on cold, pale green eyes ringed with grey that were boldly ass

CHAPTER 4
          Calling herself every type of fool for indulging in such useless memories, Gloriana swiftly removed his jacket and handed it back to him. Then she sat her tote bag on the stool behind her and pulled out her favorite oversized black knit cardigan. She put it on. Found her black-and-white baseball cap and pulled that on too.          Turning back, she couldn’t see much beyond Griffin’s broad shoulders, but the last thing she wanted was to be stopped on the way out by fans or, heaven forbid, any lurking paparazzi.          She noticed his condescending glance and decided to ignore it. Gloriana was getting more and more agitated by her own memories and his snippy attitude. Logically she knew he had every reason to be put out, but she hadn’t done anything wrong.       &

CHAPTER 5
          This wasn’t the Gloriana he wished to see, Griffin thought quite irritated. She wasn’t nothing like the woman he used to dream about every night, after closing his eyes… When she was part of his dreams, she wasn’t yelling at him or acting like an untamed, spitfire shrew… No, she was usually naked, her lithe body spread out over his bed, and her soft mouth was begging him to take her.           But this was no dream, and right now, having passionate, hot sex with her couldn’t be further from his mind. Kissing that insolent curl from her luscious mouth… well… that was closer. But completely giving in to the insane desire that still uncomfortably rode his back... ABSOLUTELY no. Not in this lifetime.           Not that he was at all surprised to find himself still attracted to Gloriana. Hell, she looked even better now than she

CHAPTER 6
          Her voice was barely above a whisper.“I really don’t know who put it there… I really don’t. But what I know is, as sure as I’m standing here, in front of you, I’m not going with you until I know what happens next.”          Griffin glanced at the ceiling, hoping some divine force would penetrate it and put him out of his misery. When he looked back at her, Griffin saw her pinching the bridge of her nose. He knew she had a headache. He’d known the minute he’d seen her. And now she was giving him one.“Come on! You’ve got to be kidding me…” Griffin groaned.“No, I’m not. I mean it, Griffin! I won’t let you push me around like you did six years ago. Back then…”“Oh, cut the theatrics, Glow! There’s no camera to turn it on for here

CHAPTER 7
          Gloriana collapsed back against the luxuriant leather car seat and closed her eyes. Her head hurt and she felt shivery all over. She didn’t know if it was remembering her previous attraction to Griffin that had brought it screaming to the fore, or the man himself… But she was unable to deny the sweet feeling of desire that had pooled low in her pelvis when he’d held her in his arms and looked at her as if he wanted to kiss her.          Actually, now that she thought about it, her physical response was probably caused to emotional tiredness and stress making her super sensitive to her surroundings and having nothing to do with Griffin at all. How could it be when he immediately assumed that she was guilty? That she was lower than dirt?          His cold arrogance fired her blood and made her want to fall b

CHAPTER 8
           So hot… Gloriana was hot. Too hot… And something was tugging on her. Pulling her down.“Gray…” she whispered then blinked and tried to focus.          ‘Where am I? Whose room is this?’“Missing your boyfriend already, little Glow?”          An aggravated male voice she instantly recognized, drawled from far away.“Oh… I wasn’t dreaming…”          Gloriana tentatively raised herself up on her elbow to find Griffin seated behind a large desk strewn with leatherbound books and reams of paper.          For a moment she just stared at him in a daze, unconsciously registering his dark frown. Then the events of the morning s

CHAPTER 9
          Griffin regarded Gloriana coolly as she walked back into his office. She’d put her hair up, which made her look shabbier than when she’d first woken up… and incredibly cute.          A fact he found hard to believe when he usually preferred women well-mannered, well-bred, and well-groomed. Griffin was still smarting from having lowered himself to question her about her lovers before, like some petty boyfriend, and wouldn’t have minded if she’d spent the rest of the afternoon in the bathroom. All the better for him to get some actual work done.          But Gloriana hadn’t, and now her eyes stopped on the refreshments his PA had just placed on his desk. Griffin knew she must be hungry because he doubted the customs officers had made it a priority to feed her earlier today. &nb

CHAPTER 10
          Gloriana’s mouth gaped, and she tried to calm down, before telling him what she thought about his rude comments and hurtful attitude.“You really think you’ve got me all sussed out, don’t you, Griffin?”          Her voice was husky with raw emotion.“In your opinion, I’m just some worthless, dumb celebrity who takes drugs and uses the casting couch to get her roles.”“Well, not if you’re screwing the dolly boy… I can’t imagine he can win you too many roles.”          He leaned back in his chair and folded his arms behind his head.          ‘You, arrogant jerk!’          Gloriana narrowed her eyes and s
