  Chapter One

  “Please tell me you’re not serious?”

  Jaw slack, and hands planted on the small round table, Rebecca Andrews stared at her three best

  friends, hardly able to believe what they were suggesting.

  Lilliana James closed her palm over Rebecca’s hand and gave a reassuring squeeze. Even though

  the lights had been dimmed in their favorite New York piano bar, a place where they all convened

  after a challenging day in the courtroom, Rebecca didn’t miss the sympathy in her friend’s big brown

  eyes when she said, “Come on, Becs, you know as well as I do that you need a vacation.”

  “It’s no
t a vacation she needs,” Melanie Collins piped in, running her fingers up and down the

  crystal stemware in a highly suggestive manner that had Rebecca’s thoughts careening in an erotic

  direction. She smirked and added, “What she needs is to get laid. Plain and simple.”

  “Good God,” Rebecca murmured under her breath, hoping like hell no one in the near vicinity

  could hear her tell-it-like-it-is friend.

  “Don’t even try to deny it,” Melanie challenged playfully, her eyes gleaming with mischief.

  As their conversation headed south—literally—Rebecca fished her olive out of the martini glass

  and gestured the bartender for another, having decided then and there that this was the perfect

  occasion to overturn her two two-drink rule. Hell, who could blame her for wanting to consume

  copious amounts of alcohol after discovering her well-meaning friends wanted to send her to some

  sort of sex club on a private island off the coast of Nova Scotia?

  She chewed on her olive as her glance went to the tickets on the table—one for a resort called

  Freedom, the other for the private charter that was scheduled to fly her there first thing tomorrow.

  Groaning, she took in the other patrons seated around them, many of whom were colleagues, their

  identities masked by the lounge’s dark lighting and intimate seating. She leaned forward, desperate to

  keep this embarrassing conversation private, and arched an accusing brow. “How long have you three

  been scheming this up, anyway?”

  “Just a few weeks now,” Melanie answered.

  Rebecca did the mental math, her thoughts rewinding to three weeks ago, then shook her head,

  suddenly understanding what this was really all about. “Look, Jon didn’t break up with me. I broke

  up with him.” When her rebuttal was met with silence, she desperately searched for an alliance in the

  group. Her glance met Sophie’s and she cast her a pleading look.

  But Sophie simply shrugged and said, “Just like you broke up with Justin, Matthew, Phillip...”

  “And we know, we know,” Melanie said, rolling her eyes. “You just weren’t compatible.”

  Rebecca held her hands up, palms out. “Okay, fine. I get it. You’re saying I’m too picky.” She

  frowned, and added, “It’s just that...well, we weren’t...they weren’t,” she paused, unable to put in to

  words what she truly felt. How could she explain what was missing from those relationships, when

  she couldn’t identify it herself?

  She took a moment to consider the men from her past. Not only were they successful, kind and

  generous, they were also deeply considerate lovers. Any woman in her right mind would jump at the

  chance to date any one of those men. She sighed inwardly. Okay, perhaps the problem really did lie

  with her, and she was the one who wasn’t in her right mind. But she just couldn’t seem to find a man

  that suited her.

  If only she could figure out what it was that was lacking...

  Oddly enough her thoughts drifted back to last year’s trial against Montgomery Charters,

  specifically to Quinn Montgomery, owner of the airline, and one of the world’s youngest, self-made

  millionaires. Rebecca always prided herself on being calm, cool and collected, inside the courtroom

  and out, but there was just something about that man’s steely command that threw her off her game.

  Whenever she met those intense black eyes from across the table, eyes that looked like they could see

  into the depth of her soul, something always compelled her to shy away. She wasn’t sure what it was

  about the powerful tycoon that had her reacting in such a peculiar way, she only knew that he had the

  ability to rattle her hard-earned control, and because of it, she needed to keep her distance.

  The bartender stepped up to the table with fresh drinks, and as his presence pulled her thoughts

  back to the conversation at hand, Rebecca shook her head, wondering why she was thinking of the

  powerful and enigmatic Quinn Montgomery after all this time.

  Perhaps it was the fact that her friends had booked her flight through his airline...or perhaps it was

  something else entirely. Either way, he was a man she never wanted to come up against again,

  because the next time she wasn’t so sure she could keep her composure.

  “It’s just a weekend away to relax, let you hair down.” Melanie waved a dismissive hand like what

  they were suggesting was nothing more than an innocent day at the spa. Except what they wanted her

  to do had sex, sin and seduction written all over it. “Maybe at Freedom you’ll learn to relax and stop

  trying to be in control of everything all the time.”

  Rebecca squared her shoulders and tucked a long, loose strand of hair back into the bun piled at the

  top of her head. “Hey, I don’t always have to be in control of everything.”

  Her rebuttal was met with laughter. Okay, so maybe it was true, but it wasn’t her fault. She’d

  come from nothing and had to work hard to get where she was, and it wasn’t easy to loosen up and let

  go. Controlling every aspect of her life was how she got to where she was today.

  And where is that, some inner voice asked, only to answer with, alone every night, with nothing but

  a battery-operated friend to keep you warm.

  Sophie squeezed her hand and Rebecca looked up to meet a pair of big blue eyes full of genuine

  concern. “You’ve been so uptight that we just thought you could use a bit of time to yourself.”

  Melanie bobbed her head. “And you never know, while you’re away maybe you’ll figure out what

  it is you’re looking for in a man.”

  “At a sex resort?”

  “It’s not a sex resort,” Lilliana reassured her. “It’s just a place where single people go to meet

  others.”

  Slipping into lawyer mode, Rebecca challenged, “But when you say others, you mean the opposite

  sex right? So in my book that’s a sex resort.” Rebecca picked up the ticket and turned it over in her

  hand, but as she thought about it, really, really thought about what her friend’s were offering her, her

  body began warming in the most intimate places. She wet her suddenly dry lips, her nipples

  tightening as she envisioned the salacious activities that undoubtedly took place on the exclusive

  island.

  A strange garbled noise caught in her throat and she shook her head to clear it. God, she must be

  crazy—and the jury was still out on that—because for a moment there she actually found herself

  considering their ludicrous offer.

  Rebecca squinted to read the fine print. “Is this place even legal?”

  “Of course it is, and you leave first thing in the morning.” Melanie snatched the ticket and shoved

  it into Rebecca’s purse; her way of saying the topic was no longer up for debate.

  Rebecca stiffened. “I don’t think—”

  “Which is why we’re doing the thinking for you,” Lillian countered.

  “If you’re not at the airport by nine sharp, I’ll personally drag you from your bed and take you

  there.” Melanie finished her drink, and grinned. “And don’t come back until you’ve had at least a

  dozen orgasms.”

  “And we don’t want to hear a peep from you until Monday morning, when we’ll meet you at the

  office to hear all the juicy details,” Lilliana said. “If you call before then, we won’t answer.”

  “That’s right,” Sophie added, pointing to Rebecca’s purse. “You’ve just been gifted with a ticked

  to
Freedom. So go. Be free.”

  Quinn Montgomery took one look at the flight manifest and felt his cock swell with an excitement he

  hadn’t felt in a long time. As the Dom in him stirred to life, he carefully set the paper on his desk and

  took two measured steps to his office window. He adjusted his tie and blinked against the bright

  morning rays glistening on the wings of the Cessna idling quietly on the tarmac below. He turned his

  attention to his ground crew, who were performing maintenance checks before today’s scheduled

  flights, but his thoughts were too preoccupied with the names on his manifest, one name in particular,

  to follow their progress.

  Rebecca Andrews.

  Now what were the odds that the lawyer who’d cost his company hundreds of thousands of dollars

  had booked a charter on one of his crafts? A charter to a hedonistic resort, nonetheless.

  His mind raced back to last year’s trial, and to the lawsuit Ms. Andrews’ client never should have

  won. How it was his company’s fault that Ms. Andrews’ client had booked a package though a shady

  travel agent, only to find herself alone and stranded on Nantucket Island during one of the year’s worst

  storm was beyond him. Yet in the end, his company had to go good for the damages, as well as the

  mental stress and loss of wages that the woman had allegedly suffered.

  Quinn’s mouth twitched and he scrubbed his hand over his chin as he rolled back and forth on the

  balls of his feet. While the money was only a drop in the bucket for his company, the tricks the

  lawyer had used to get what she wanted from him, left him wanting to use a few tricks of his own—to

  get what he wanted from her.

  Oh yeah, watching her from the hot seat during his trial, watching that sharp tongue of hers in

  action, had him wanting to find other ways to put that smart mouth of her to work. Heat prowled

  through his body as he thought about how Ms. Andrews kept her control close, kept her body poised

  and her head held high. But during the proceeding, every time her glance had landed on him and she

  lowered her gaze in a submissive move, he knew she was in denial. Damned if he didn’t want to be

  the one to open her eyes and her body, and put her in touch with her deeper needs.

  Even though they’d never crossed paths since the trial, she’d consumed his thoughts for well over

  a year now. He’d spent many nights thinking about the ways he’d like to strip her bare and give her

  ass a good hard paddling for wrongfully stealing money from his company. But the truth was, what he
