Jessica Sanders, an executive at Jordan Cosmetics, is watching her career disintegrate before her eyes. Her new boss Lucas Jordan believes she's a promiscuous employee who got her job by sleeping her way to the top-thanks to his brother's lies. Even worse, Jessica is so strongly attracted to Lucas it's affecting their working relationship.

Lucas Jordan realizes his brother lied. Not only is Jessica beautiful and seductive, but hard-working and well respected by her peers. He's also forced to admit he wants Jessica despite her resolve to keep their relationship as "business only." Even after Jessica has opened her heart to him, their love is threatened by the haunting specter of his dead wife, dark family secrets and betrayals that lead Lucas and Jessica into a maze of danger and death.

Ms. Jackson has given gothic romance a unique, exciting twist that's created a new romance sub-genre. (Oct., 247 pp., $4.99)
