Cassie Trey doesn't live a normal life. She works as a spy for the ancient and secretive Master Chikara. Her latest dangerous assignment: get close enough to billionaire Oliver Riley, the head of Sparrow Pharmaceuticals, to find proof of and destroy his plans to create a biological weapon.
Working as his personal assistant, however, Cassie discovers more about herself than about the weapons. Will Cassie be able to keep her mind on her objectives when she finds herself in close quarters with Oliver Riley?
This 12,000 word spy thriller romance is the first instalment in the The Spy and the Billionaire triology, following Cassie Trey and the billionaire Oliver Riley. Here's an excerpt:
Cassie immediately made her way towards Mr. Riley's office, but it was locked. She went through her purse, but Cassie couldn't find her key. "Shit, don't tell me I left it at home" she muttered to herself. Suddenly, Cassie heard voices. They were coming up here, and Cassie was absolutely trapped. Damn it, damn it, damn it. I'm caught. I'm definitely caught.
Just as Cassie was preparing herself for capture by the guards, she felt someone in front of her. Suddenly, his lips were on hers. Cassie looked up in surprise into the eyes of her boss, Mr. Riley. The guards came storming up the stairs and looked with suspicion at the couple making out.
"It's fine, let's keep moving" one of them eventually said, and they continued through the floor. Cassie had barely noticed. She was confused, but also incredibly turned on. Mr. Riley was, if nothing else, an excellent kisser. But more than anything, Cassie wondered why he was doing this. There was time for questions later though. Cassie wrapped her arms around Mr. Riley's shoulders and pulled him towards her, arching her back. Despite the fact that the men had gone, Mr. Riley reacted, wrapping one arm around Cassie's waist.
Riley slipped his tongue inside of Cassie's mouth, and she moaned as he began to explore her, began to explore the inside of her. She couldn't believe this was happening. Why was he doing this? With one swift motion, Mr. Riley lifted Cassie up, and she wrapped her legs around his thighs. He carried her to the table until he unlocked the door and carried her over to his desk, placing her gently on the edge of it. Their lips were still locked, the two of them not having exchanged a single word.
