Here is a short sample from the book:
“Up,” Lucent said, commanding me.
I stood. I’d been sitting at his desk in his office at Landseer Tower while he was away, which was probably not the most ideal place to situate myself. Lucent had a grand office with a view of the city; and, as well he should, considering he was a prominent figure at Landseer Enterprises. Lucent Storme, Director of Public Relations, figurehead for the public front of Landseer Enterprises. He attended press conferences, spoke about new and exciting deals, went to events, traveled, and overall he just did a lot of things. He did more than his title dictated, too, but that wasn’t for everyone to know. I probably shouldn’t know, either, but…
“Kneel,” he said, pointing to the carpeted floor in front of his feet.
He interrupted me with a sharp gesture. “Miss Tanner,” he said. “Kneel.”
I sighed and rolled my eyes at him, then knelt on the carpet in front of him. We stood (or he stood and I kneeled) behind his desk. The large window to the side gave me a wonderful vantage point of the city and I found myself glancing at the streets.
“You’re an extremely difficult woman,” Lucent said, demanding my attention once again. “You sneak into my office without my permission, use my desk for your own pleasure, and then you have the gall to act as if nothing is amiss. Have I missed anything?”
“I certainly didn’t use the desk for my own pleasure,” I said. “I was trying to get some work done.”
“I recognize that you have a mouth, Miss Tanner, but I don’t want you to use it at the moment.”
“You asked me a question!”
I didn’t get to say much more than that. Lucent grabbed my chin in his hand and lifted it up, making me look skywards and towards him. He lifted my head high, straining the muscles in my neck, then he squeezed my jaw slightly, forcing me to part my lips.
This was all cause for surprise, but then he surprised me more by kissing me. Bending low, Lucent descended upon me, bringing his mouth to mine and kissing me with such passion and fervor that I forgot nearly everything.
