Sebastian Church is a heartless, egotistical bastard and those are his positive qualities. He’s ruthless in business, using the leverage in his multi-billion-dollar company to crush anyone who gets in his way. People are stepping stones, and mercy isn’t a word he’s familiar with. Sex is a pastime hobby and Church isn’t against using it to his advantage.
Ashley Mulder is a recent graduate from college eager to get her foot in the business world. When her best friend gets her an interview with Church Industries it’s a dream come true. Until it’s not. Meeting Church she discovers the fear people have of him is well-founded and she’s no match for the merciless CEO with no compassion. What Church wants he gets. He wants her. She’ll have to decide. Is selling her soul to the devil to save a friend worth the chance of being destroyed?
Innocence meets sinful corruption. Darkness meets light. Temptation has never been so terrifying. In Church’s own words. “I’m the only religion you’ll ever need.”
“You make me sick.” Her words were still softly spoken, even as she insulted.
“You’ll learn to want me more than any man.” It wasn’t ego talking, I knew how skilled I was in bed. Shrugging, I let her words roll of me, because they didn’t matter. The bottom line did. “Are you agree-ing?”
“I’m a virgin.” Did she think that would save her? I didn’t mind setting her straight.
“You won’t be for long, if you say yes.” It was rude, but I wasn’t known for my flowery words.
“God! Yes, okay. Just promise me that Deshawn is no longer indebted to you.” The tears made me an-gry, and I wanted to demand she stop them.
“I’m the only religion you’ll ever need. Leave your precious God out of this. Now, get yourself together woman.” Standing up, I walked over to the bar and poured her two fingers of scotch and brought it back. “Weakness is something you should never
“Invite me in.” I wasn’t taking a step inside until she did. Ashley had to want me more than that pa-thetic little man she’d kissed earlier!
Her gaze was still confused as her lips spoke the words that gave me every right I needed, “Come in.” I pushed the window open feeling like some teenager as I propelled my body through the opening. “This is a dream.” She shook her head, looking at me, tears filling those gorgeous eyes.
“This is not a dream, Ashley.” Walking over to her bed, I ripped her nightgown down the middle, exposing that beautiful body I’d craved to possess. She pulled the tattered pieces together in front and sat up quickly. Her hands trembled as she attempted to cover herself.

Twenty-One-Year-Old College Student Becca Stewart has lived her life by the rules and never stepped over any lines. For once in her life she wants to be the bad girl and enjoy what she’s missing out on. She’s had a crush on the star quarterback at her university and decides to tell him how she feels. He’s all in for a night of wild sex until she confesses to being a virgin. Telling her he’d love to give her what she wants if she wasn’t innocent, she decides to fight for him.
Hiring a gigolo isn’t something Becca ever thought she’d do, but having Bryce is worth it. Taking the small nest egg her grandmother left her she hires Colton Dillard and flies out to Las Vegas to get the experience she needs. Colton owns a company that pleasures women for profit, but he’s not exactly who he claims to be! Six foot four inches of pure sensuality, he’s every woman’s dream and just the man to teach her the ways of unadulterated sex.
One trip to Sin City will change Becca’s life forever. Being seduced by a stranger paid to give her all the pleasure she’s ever craved might do more than wake up her hidden passion. It’s one whirlwind ride of ecstasy, temptation, and discovering that sometimes you don’t know what you really want until it sweeps you off your feet!
I have been a fan of Michelle Hughes and her writing for YEARS. Seriously, years. When it comes to hot, sexy and passionate Alpha males, you want to be reading her work. I love the fact that she writes about virgins because it is a genre that not many delve into.
Becca is a wildcat and I love how she thinks outside of the box. Vegas to lose your V card. Hell yeah. I’m down with that. It sounds like something I would have considered at that point as well. If you are going to do it might as well enjoy it and get it done by a master. OMG. Colton is a master and a half. Yummy.
This is a fun, hot, sexy, and delicious read. If you like your books spicy, you have to read Michelle.
