LEGAL SEDUCTION – Lisa Childs
Legal Lovers, Book 1
Contemporary Series Romance
New York City – Present Day
Simon Kramer and his three partners (and best friends) are celebrating winning a huge case at their favorite bar, all the while wondering who’d tried to sabotage the case. There must be a mole at their law firm, so when Simon gets a security notification that someone has entered his office after hours, he heads over there. To his surprise, he discovers his personal assistant, Bette Monroe, bent over his desk. Even while he admires her sexy rear-end, he immediately suspects it is her who is the mole.
Bette had hoped to leave her letter of resignation on Simon’s desk without him seeing her, but she’s caught red-handed. After he learns that she’s quitting, he demands that she give two weeks’ notice and that they’ll be working hard during that time…including nights. Even before she leaves the office that night, Simon is seemingly intent on seducing her. Why his sudden interest in her?
Late nights at the office turn hot for Simon and Bette in LEGAL SEDUCTION. Bette isn’t the mole, but she does carry a secret as to why she’s leaving the firm and doesn’t tell Simon. Because he’s a sexy man who melts panties off most any woman, she has dressed primly as she doesn’t want to get involved with a man who is a player. But this doesn’t stop him from kissing her, and he’s soon stunned to learn she’s wearing sexy lingerie underneath her drab outfits.
Bette’s secrecy over why she’s leaving the firm, Street Legal, has Simon refusing her request to leave without further notice. He’s going to work at getting real close to her and maybe she’ll slip up. It turns out to be fairly easy to seduce her, and the nights working together soon turn into nights of lovemaking. But even as they make love, Bette still holds firm on not divulging the reason why she’s leaving. Simon is frustrated…and becoming more attracted to her.
A sexy office romance will thrill readers of sensual romance in LEGAL SEDUCTION. There’s plenty of sex, but each encounter between Bette and Simon only ties them even closer together emotionally. Her secret hangs over them and readers might wonder why she’s not telling him the truth, but it turns out to be her embarrassment over her next career move. Their sensual romp in LEGAL SEDUCTION will win over readers who hope they find their happily-ever-after. Good news for readers is that Simon has three more partners who are as sexy and hot as he and we’ll get to read their tales soon.

Excerpt: Copyright © 2018 Legal Seduction by Lisa Childs
“So then more money will get you to stay,” he said dismissively, as if he’d closed a case. He tossed her crumpled-up resignation letter into the brass trash can sitting beside his desk.
Frustration—and not just with this conversation—overwhelmed her, overcoming her natural inclination to avoid confrontation, and she blurted out, “No!”
Working for him these past two years had increased her frustration because of all those damn fantasies he’d inspired.
“But you just said—”
“I took the job because I needed money,” she said. “I needed money then.”
His eyes narrowed more as he studied her face. “And you don’t need it now?”
“My reason for leaving has nothing to do with money,” she said. Had she not found another source of income, she would have been forced to stay, but he didn’t need to know that.
“So you do have a reason.”
He wasn’t the trial lawyer of their partnership, but he could have been. She felt like she was being cross-examined on the witness stand. And she didn’t enjoy it one bit. Quitting was not a crime.
“I don’t have to give you a reason.” At least she didn’t think she did.
Maybe she should have had a lawyer look at that employment contract before she’d written her resignation letter. But no matter how much she paid, no lawyer would be as good as Simon Kramer. He was the best.
And, according to his ex-lovers, not just at the law...
“Why don’t you want to tell me?” he asked, and he stepped closer now, so close that she could feel the heat of his body through his suit and her cardigan and skirt.
Heat flushed her body, making her skin tingle. She tried to step back but the desk stopped her, the hard wood pressing into the backs of her thighs as he nearly touched the front of her. Her breasts pushed against the front of the gray cardigan as she struggled for breath. She had never been this close to him before. It was more than unsettling. Her knees trembled and her already tripping pulse quickened even more.
“Because it’s personal,” she murmured. And they had never been anything but businesslike with each other, except in her dreams.
He leaned down, so close that his warm breath whispered across her lips as he asked, “Are you in love with me?”
