Contract to Pleasure

Book 1 in the Pleasure Seekers series.

Dragged to a bar to find a man by her younger sister, Tamara is not a happy Special Service agent. Dressed, barely, she draws the attention of a tall grey eyed man. When she dismisses him as too conceited and arrogant she leaves the bar. But he follows. Appears the Bandarian won’t take no for an answer. She doesn’t know it, but he has a good reason for the way he is…..

Kendrick is the ruler of Bandar and used to getting what he wants. He can’t figure out why Tamara doesn’t fall in line like all the other women. This intrigues him and the hunt is on. But his prey escapes before he even learns her name. A week later she shows up in his palace with her father, the premier of Federation Earth, asking for military and political assistance with an enemy. He knows just what he wants in exchange. He negotiates for a year of her time, figuring he will quickly get his fill and enjoy her. But soon, a year doesn’t seem like enough, and no other woman will do.

Loved it. Instant chemistry is a favorite of mine, and these two had it in spades. Tamara was spunky without overdoing it and hurting herself in the process. Kendrick was overbearing and egotistical, but in a hot way. Kendrick’s cluelessness was adorable, and it was ironic his friend and fellow philanderer pointed out what was really going on. I can’t wait to read his story. This short read was satisfying on all levels, and the sex was smoking hot. Not to be missed.

Caught between a rock and a hard man…
Special Service agent Tamara Conway isn’t looking for love. She has a life, an important position. The last thing she needs is some hot and sweaty sex with a gorgeous, arrogant Bandarian messing up her life, even if he can kiss the legs out from under her.

Kendrick has wanted Tamara ever since their first unforgettable encounter. With Earth needing his assistance, this is his chance to pick up where they left off. Kendrick agrees to help on one condition. Tamara will be his for one year.
Shocked at the indecent proposal but facing the possible death of millions of people, Tamara agrees. If Kendrick thinks he’s getting a submissive woman, he’s in for a surprise. Tamara is no shrinking violet. A battle of wills ensues. An overwhelming desire binds them together. One year isn’t enough—Kendrick wants her for eternity.
