Luc Taverson is a man with a plan. He’s a successful chef with many book deals, a TV show in the works and a girlfriend who is a beautiful, upstanding teacher. He wants the all-American family; the lovely wife that’s a pillar in society to mother his children and take care of their family. Nothing will get in the way of his plan for the future; not his fertility issues that are a secret to all but a select few, not his dark desires he keeps hidden, and most of all not Alyssa Devereaux, the exotic dancer turned strip-club owner.
Luc and Alyssa spent one night together, which ended up being such a wild uninhibited night of passion it left Alyssa desperate for more and Luc scared of the lack of control he experienced.
Alyssa is proud of the life she’s made for herself. She has built a successful business at Sexy Siren’s and now she is opening her very own upscale restaurant. Luc agreed to help her by coming in and working the restaurant for opening week. His name alone will bring people to the restaurant. Alyssa has an additional plan in the works for Luc though; she will have him for herself because one night was not enough.
Luc is determined to go in, work the week, and leave. No mixing business with pleasure. He can’t afford to have feelings for a woman like Alyssa Devereaux. She’s sexy as hell and he would love nothing more than to have a week of pleasure with her. However, Alyssa just doesn’t fit into his future plans. He doesn’t see her as the “motherly” type and what would it look like to have a stripper as a wife; someone who is always being picketed by the local minister as a whore and sinner?
Luc can’t hold back any longer when he realizes that he is not the only one wanting Alyssa. His possessive nature comes out full force when Alyssa starts receiving threats. Alyssa would love for Luc to want her out of true feelings for her, but it seems he only wants her behind closed doors. His accusations of her show he doesn’t trust her and his respect for her is nonexistent. Can she give him her body without submitting her heart and soul to him? Luc and Alyssa both have secrets that are dark and devastating.
The threats to Alyssa get more and more serious and Luc finds it impossible to let her go when her life is in danger. Luc must find a way to save Alyssa without giving up the future he has so carefully planned.
