Bittersweet Rescueby Coleen KwanPublisher: Coleen KwanRelease Date: February 15, 2014Genre: Contemporary RomanceLength: 133 PagesShe rescued him, and saved herself.When Ellie Sherwood rescues her boss from drowning, she never anticipates the consequences. For three years she’s existed in an emotional limbo after a catastrophic family tragedy, but now she’s awake and ready to seize life with both hands. And that includes the sexy boss she’s been secretly infatuated with for some time.Drake Crawford is about to achieve his lifelong goal when a car accident plays havoc with his life. Not only is his plan for revenge delayed, but his once demure personal assistant is now shockingly, irresistibly forward. Drake is against office affairs, and Ellie is vital to his success, but he can’t get her out of his mind, and besides, he does owe her...
His solution—a two-week break with Ellie at his wilderness hideout. They’ll indulge in a scorching, private affair, and when it’s over they’ll return to their normal lives. But as Drake discovers more about Ellie, he realises her quiet exterior hides a backbone of steel. When she asks him to walk away from his ultimate goal, he knows it’s time to let her go.
I want her.
Drake watched Ellie as she briskly crossed to the other side of the home office. His gaze caught on the ladder in her stockings and followed the length of her legs until they disappeared under her hemline. A bit of her shirt was still hanging out from her skirt, despite her furious tucking. His fingers itched to grab hold of her shirt and yank it right off her. What would it feel like to slide his hand over the smoothness of her back? Would it be as mind-blowing as her kisses? He really wanted to know.
She was such a mystery to him. Who would have thought his calm and dignified personal assistant could kiss him with such passion that even now his entire body was on fire and aching for her touch? He could have controlled his fantasies about her if she hadn’t given him a glimpse of the scorching sensuality simmering beneath her modest exterior. One little taste of her had blown away all his preconceived ideas about her. Ellie was a woman with a secret persona, and damn if he didn’t want that side of her to come out and play with him.
But if he gave into temptation, he’d be asking for a whole lot of trouble. Ellie worked for him, and he made it a rule never to cross the line with his employees. And more than that, Ellie was the best damn personal assistant he’d ever had. If he was going to make investment director at Sinclair Hill, he needed her on his team, and he’d be an idiot to risk everything just because his balls were ga-ga over her.
