Are You Ready For A Sexy Legal Seduction?
Lisa Childs penned an office romance between a boss and his secretary…
Legal Seduction, Harlequin Dare
In Legal Seduction, author Lisa Childs introduces readers to Simon Kramer, the sexy con artist turned lawyer who is determined to find the traitor selling firm secrets to the competition. His first suspect? Bette Monroe, his executive assistant who just handed him her two week notice.
Simon came from the streets. He knows what it’s like to run a con on someone, and he’s perfected his own methods for extracting the truth from people. And he’s determined to get the truth from Bette before her last two contracted weeks are up.
Bette has no idea why Simon is turning on the charm with her, but she isn’t above using it to her advantage to get him to release her from her contract early. Only, the more time she spends with Simon, the less clear the lines between them appear. Could she be falling for her boss?
Legal Seduction is a hot, sexy read with the added bonus of humor and a mystery braided in. It’s emotional, compelling, and I love how well the author blended both characters’ flaws and fears into the storyline.
If you’re looking for a naughty boss/secretary kind of story, Legal Seduction is definitely the book for you. It’s escapism to its core, but beneath that escape is a great lesson on trust, lies, secrets, betrayals, and overcoming pessimism long enough to see into the heart of a person.
ABOUT LEGAL SEDUCTION
“You are mine for the next two weeks.”
Resigning might be the sexiest thing she’s ever done…
Quitting her job puts executive assistant Bette Monroe in a very compromising position. She has ten days left, and powerhouse lawyer Simon Kramer is working her late into the night…and seducing her into oblivion! While he’s convinced she’s selling business secrets, the bombshell secret she’s keeping would shock him more. Does she bare all…or keep him guessing?

“So then more money will get you to stay,” he said dismissively, as if he’d closed a case. He tossed her crumpled-up resignation letter into the brass trash can sitting beside his desk.
Frustration—and not just with this conversation—overwhelmed her, overcoming her natural inclination to avoid confrontation, and she blurted out, “No!”
Working for him these past two years had increased her frustration because of all those damn fantasies he’d inspired.
“But you just said—”
“I took the job because I needed money,” she said. “I needed money then.”
His eyes narrowed more as he studied her face. “And you don’t need it now?”
“My reason for leaving has nothing to do with money,” she said. Had she not found another source of income, she would have been forced to stay, but he didn’t need to know that.
“So you do have a reason.”
He wasn’t the trial lawyer of their partnership, but he could have been. She felt like she was being cross-examined on the witness stand. And she didn’t enjoy it one bit. Quitting was not a crime.
“I don’t have to give you a reason.” At least she didn’t think she did.
Maybe she should have had a lawyer look at that employment contract before she’d written her resignation letter. But no matter how much she paid, no lawyer would be as good as Simon Kramer. He was the best.
And, according to his ex-lovers, not just at the law…
“Why don’t you want to tell me?” he asked, and he stepped closer now, so close that she could feel the heat of his body through his suit and her cardigan and skirt.
Heat flushed her body, making her skin tingle. She tried to step back but the desk stopped her, the hard wood pressing into the backs of her thighs as he nearly touched the front of her. Her breasts pushed against the front of the gray cardigan as she struggled for breath. She had never been this close to him before. It was more than unsettling. Her knees trembled and her already tripping pulse quickened even more.
“Because it’s personal,” she murmured. And they had never been anything but businesslike with each other, except in her dreams.
He leaned down, so close that his warm breath whispered across her lips as he asked, “Are you in love with me?”
