Excerpt

Rupert directs his astonished, vicious eyes at Lana’s.  ‘You offered yourself to him too?’

Lana stares mutely at Rupert.  His eyes move derisively, hatefully over her.  She feels herself cringe.

‘Does he know how much you charge?’

‘Do you doubt I will be able to afford her?’ asks Blake.

Rupert shrivels the way a leech that has had salt thrown on it does.  ‘This is why you invited me here, isn’t it?’

‘Yes.’

‘What a joke!’ he taunts, but his jibe lacks any real bite.  ‘The great Barrington can’t find his own whore.  He has to steal mine.’

‘I didn’t steal her,’ Blake notes reasonably.  ‘I just offered to pay more.’

Rupert’s eyes bulge, bug-like.  ‘She’s just a cheap bloody tart.  I’ve just finger-fucked her out there,’ he taunts maliciously, jerking his dandruff-laden head in the direction of the door.

Lana feels Blake’s hand tighten around her waist.  ‘Consider it an unearned freebie, then,’ he says quietly, but there is warning in the calm words.  A warning that is not lost on Rupert.  The air becomes tight with tension.  Lana looks from one man to the other.  It is like watching two lions fighting for supremacy.  But her body knows which lion she wants to win this fight.

Rupert shrugs.  He knows he’d be a fool to go against a Barrington.  He has much to lose.  ‘If you think I’m going to fight over her you’re mistaken.  Have her.’

He turns on his heel and leaves.

Blake lets go of Lana.  She realizes she is trembling.  She leans against the desk, hating herself, but unable to stop—nothing is more important than the money—she asks, ‘Did you mean it about the money?’

Lynn’s Review:
Blake Law Barrington is a man who seems pretty jaded when it comes to women.  Lana Bloom has gone into a restaurant.  The man she meets seems to be a jerk of the first order.  Blake invites them to a party.  And then we are lead into a world where we see the social lines that some of us may never cross.

The writing, to me, seemed to be a little simple.  Because of this, I felt that the story moved very slowly.  It seems that Georgia plays on the reader’s misconceptions about men, their money, and what they feel they are entitled too – and that includes women.  But our author shows her readers the amount of love a daughter has for her mother.  And this is what hooked me into the story.

This story doesn’t seem to show any connections between the two main characters – it’s all business.  I wouldn’t call it a romance just because it had sex in it.  At times, the sex seemed mechanical.  If this book had smell-a-vision desire would be very strong indeed – but desire is not the same as romance.  And a lot of the sex is left to your imagination.

Once I get to the scene where Blake has a meeting with his father, everything starts to make sense.  Then it dawns on me that Georgia is a very smart author.  By using her words the way she did, she shows what a sad life some rich men live.  It also shows how skewed their thinking is in regards to women.  This story has an interesting ending that will get you ready for book two coming out in January.  What I’m interested to see about the second book is what happens with Lana.
