What happens when a sex columnist finds out a very sexy alpha...

might need, er, help in the bedroom?  

Playboy billionaire Wilder Lange is 100 percent sex. Women probably stand in line to worship him. But sex columnist and expert Harley Vega isn’t one of them. Especially since he eliminated her publishing job. Living in New York City takes stamina—and a lot of cash—so she has to find a new job. Fast.

Enter Wilder with his broad shoulders and almost jet-black hair. The gorgeous man has a very unusual request. He needs her expertise, and it must remain confidential. He also wants Harley—a woman with brains, sensitivity and a beauty she hasn’t noticed until he makes her look in the mirror.

Now Harley finds herself in close confines with the sexiest man on earth, one she should detest. He has her questioning her own knowledge of a topic she has studied for years: unbridled passion. She’s the one who’s supposed to uncover his secrets, not the reverse. Their crazy chemistry defies logic and soon Wilder shows her pleasure that makes her forget her own name. Is it even crazier to think they could bring this connection beyond the bedroom?
