He needs a fake girlfriend.
Master Holden plays hard and punishes harder. Apart from upholding the unbreakable house rules at the Manor, he has a few unbreakable rules of his own:
- Only ever play at the Manor
- Don’t mix play partners and friends
- No relationships. Ever.
So when his scheming father conspires to force him into marriage with a corporate shark – as if that’s a thing people do – the lie is born. Now Holden needs a fake girlfriend to keep his father off his back and out of his life.
As long as everyone plays by the rules, it should be doable. Right?
She needs an escape. Or a hero.
Some mistakes will ruin your life. Elaine is still paying for the last time she trusted a man when Master Holden, the sadist who tempts her like no other, asks her to pose as his girlfriend only days after punishing and promptly rejecting her at the Manor. A fake relationship with her blackmailer’s nemesis isn’t going to make her life any easier, but smart choices never were her forte. After all, she’s already broken the unbreakable rules in a failed bid to escape her situation.
What could possibly go wrong?
