Nothing But Trouble

Billionaire CEO Michael Vilander needed just one date. Creating a fake profile on his own matchmaking website may not have been his brightest move. But then Sophia Baldwin’s arresting face pops up on his CHAT NOW feature. Not only is she gorgeous, but after spending half the night exchanging messages with her, he finds her to be naive, innocent and way too sexy.
Twenty-four-year-old Sophia Baldwin is barely able to make ends meet. Caring for her sick grandmother prevents her from having a normal life—aspirations of attending college full-time to become a nurse are on the back burner—but then she meets the charming and dazzling Clint on an online dating site. When he asks her to the Denver Arts Foundation’s Annual Valentine’s Day Gala, she’s confident things are looking up.
Once Sophia learns that her hot date is none other than website mogul Michael Vilander, she’s definitely not mentioning her night job. What’s a lie by omission anyway? After all, it’s only one date…Until Michael’s ex flaunts her fancy engagement ring in Michael’s face and something compels Sophia to announce her and Michael’s engagement. AKA, fake engagement. They agree on one month to pretend they’re in love before all bets are off.
Pretending to be in love with a sweet and sexy billionaire, but not actually falling in love, ahem, how hard could it be?
“How long have you worked here?” Michael asked curtly
“Answer my questions first.”
“No. Didn’t trust me enough to tell me?” He raised his eyebrows high on his forehead as he waited for her answer.
“This isn’t about trust.”
He smirked. His eyes glowed with a savage inner fire. “Isn’t it, though?”
Was it? It was more about him judging her. Wanting nothing to do with her if he knew what she did for a living. If she took it away, he couldn’t judge her. Yeah, she guessed she hadn’t trusted him enough to decide on his own.
“In a way, I suppose. Why are you here?” she asked.
He lifted his dark eyebrows high on his forehead and leaned forward. Sophia could feel his uneven breath fan over her stomach through the eyelets of her bustier. She could see the hard length of him straining against his black slacks.
“For you, of course. I came for my dance.” He smiled without humor.
Tingles worked their way through her body, traveling straight to her core. She didn’t want their relationship to be tainted this way. Tainted with The Glass House. Once it was, he would be like any other guy she’d ever met. Any other man that wanted her for the thrills, her body, the outfits. The show. She wanted Michael to be the one man who didn’t want her that way. The one guy who didn’t want her for her lap dances.
“I don’t want to dance for you.” Sophia shook her head, despite the pulsing between her legs.
