I park the Harley, cut the engine and remove my helmet, still straddling the bike.
My eyes wander to the front of the church and I grimace as memories bombard me. It’s been years. Too many and not enough. The pain is still there, burning like an acid in my stomach and a cancer in my brain.
Every Sunday morning my father would drag me here, so he could spout his three Hail Mary’s and repent his sins before we returned to our shitty life.
I run my finger under the collar of my shirt. I hate suits and it doesn’t feel right to be wearing one on the Harley. A Harley is meant for jeans and leathers.
A movement captures my gaze and there she is, walking into the church with her father. She’s the reason I’m back here….and the reason I left in the first place.
Her long, dark hair is swept up into some fancy do, exposing the delicate sweep of her neck and jaw. Her dark brown eyes and pretty lips are seared into my brain, and my cock springs to life as I remember those lips on mine. Our first kiss had very nearly become our first time and the heat of those memories still has the power to bring me to my knees.
My eyes travel down her long legs and the shape of her exquisite ass in the form fitting skirt suit. Just looking at her from a distance gets me hard and I’m already imagining the things I’d like to do to her…with her. Things I should’ve done a long time ago…
She’s always had this effect on me. She just never knew it.
Until one night five years ago. And then I left – without so much as a goodbye or even a note.
Five long years I’ve stayed away, giving her the time to grow up, the chance to make her own choices, even if those choices no longer include me.
Five years spent running away from my feelings. I couldn’t tell her back then – she deserved so much more than I could give her. She was too young, and I was too fucked up. Maybe I still am.
I had to be here today. The day that she’s burying her mother. It won’t be easy – I’m pretty sure she hates me for leaving – but I’m back now.
Back to claim what’s mine.

…Truly Worth Reading!!!
I read this without reading the first book, however, this book has its own story to tell. Nataisha has a beautiful writing style. There are abuses thrown in here and there, the story has its share of adult content as well, yet, they do not overpower the storyline. Reading the story was like watching a hollywood production….
Author Note: Although this series is loosely connected to The Billionaire’s Obsession series, it stands alone and can be read without reading The Billionaire’s Obsession series. But this is a steamy alpha billionaire romance, so skip it if you dislike sensual romance and explicit language.
****Includes The Billionaire’s Obsession ( complete Simon & Kara’s story) as a bonus***

I want to hate him because of my past, but I end up making what I consider a “devil’s bargain” with the arrogant young billionaire instead. Really, I have no choice. It’s either take the work he’s offering or starve, and I’ve been hungry long enough.
I didn’t think being his fake fiancee for the holidays would be a difficult job, but it ends up more complicated than I ever imagined, and I see a whole new side of Trace once he lets his guard down. He’s haunted by his past–just like me, But there are things I can never tell him, secrets I don’t dare reveal.
Eventually, I find myself in a difficult situation because our volatile attraction to each other won’t be denied. Should I tell him the truth, or do I finish the job he’s paying me for and walk away with my secrets still hidden, my pride still intact? He’s paying me enough for this job to take care of myself once it’s over. I’ve always been alone, and I always thought I preferred it…until I met Trace. I’d have to put everything on the line to be honest with him, but he very well might be the first man who is worth the risk. Honestly, I’d be endangering more than just my pride. I could handle feeling like a loser, because I’ve pretty much felt that way my entire life. What really terrifies me is being vulnerable and the possibility of ending up with a shattered heart….
