Mace (A Stepbrother Romance) by Claire Donovan

Mace (A Stepbrother Romance)

The death of her father and the collapse of his fortune forces innocent pre-med student Alyssa Carlyle into the erotic world of high class escorting. She soon discovers her mysterious boss is also her estranged and provocative stepbrother Mace. Neither can deny their shameless desire and steamy passion, but can they develop the trust and commitment needed to escape the dark world they've entered?

Read an excerpt:
PROLOGUE - Alyssa 
IT’S JUST THE TWO OF us in his office. In all my life I've never felt such charged tension with a man and I know we're not fooling around anymore. A hush falls over the room and an unmistakable heat is rising in the narrow slip of space between us; any spark could set us off. He's standing right in front of my face while I sit unmoving in the interview chair, staring at an obvious outline swelling inside his pants leg. If I do anything at all, it's the same as throwing my life away. I’m breathing heavily, a little damp and silky from his provocation. 
I don’t know what takes over me, but I suddenly start unbuckling his belt and unzipping his pants. I’m angry, I’m aroused, and I’m damn sure not going to chicken out this time. I know I’m not in the same universe as him when it comes to sexual experience, but I get the general idea of what to do. My heart is racing and I feel a heady moment of satisfaction when a flicker of shock registers in his eyes. This is about to get real between us. 
"I want something more, Boss," I tell him. Mace has never backed down or backed off from any challenge and I know he won't try to stop me. "If this is only way to a better life, then I’ll do it." 
I come off the chair and kneel in front of him, looking directly up into his eyes. He releases a held breath and I feel his tense body relax. I can tell he likes watching me but his silence makes me nervous and my cheeks redden. I smile and ask him if he's enjoying what I'm doing. His eyes burn brightly with lust and pleasure. 
He pulls my hair back over my shoulder and takes it up in both his hands. I hear him moaning my name, 'Alyssa', as his fingers begin unzipping my dress. My top falls away and his hands cup my breasts beneath my black bra. The sensation of his rough fingers caressing my nipples makes me light-headed. The molten heat of my intense passion surprises me, sweeping aside any of my last regrets. I can't help giving him whatever he wants. 
My one hope is that he'll come to realize he desires me only for himself, before he callously auctions my virginity away to a wealthy stranger.
