Public relations, private complications–it’s all about to hit the front page.

Billionaire playboy Peter Wells pays for sex. His girlfriend-for-hire arrangements are tidy, simple, and not apt to land him with a palimony suit. When an anonymous gossip columnist reveals his predilections for escorts and control, Peter vows revenge.

Georgia Whitcomb is a lot of things–incognito journalist, aristocrat, and best friend to a sleep deprived and slightly neurotic editor–but she isn’t really girlfriend material. She’s old money pretending to be no money, and has her independence to maintain.

When the paper won’t name its source, Peter buys the business and dubs Georgia his personal assistant. Georgia is mortified to learn exactly what type of person Peter is–generous, compassionate, demanding. Peter is unprepared for the deep passion and commitment Georgia inspires from him.

As Peter’s past comes to light, the walls around Georgia’s heart erode and her lies begin to unravel. In the end, there seems to be no way to reveal her true self without destroying their fragile romance. With Peter’s investigation peeling back the layers of her deception, only one thing is certain: the fallout from falling in love will be front page news.

Billionaire playboy and a reluctant journalist clash. He pays for love using escorts; she is a gossip columnist with an axe to grind. What lies below the surface makes for an unforgettable story.

Peter is the ultimate alpha male with no time for relationships and no inclination to ever give his heart away. Actually, it would be difficult for him to find his heart, since all that know him think he has none. Through terrific prose and character development, the reader is given an in depth look at Peter’s psyche and the horrific events that shaped his lifestyle.

Georgia is just as complicated and damaged as Peter. She has her own memories that haunt her. She is also the result of events that can never be forgotten. A love affair between these two characters is a recipe for disaster. Our two characters of course clash and we are led through an interesting erotically romantic story that you will not soon forget.

The writing style, pace of the story, and character development are literature at its best. This book made me ponder how quick we are to jump to conclusions based on our own experiences. We are challenged to evaluate our encounters with strangers, where that first impression left a lasting impression and ruled our relationship with that person, whether it’s correct or not.
