Trusting the Boss (Billionaires in the City #4)
STAND ALONE CONTEMPORARY BILLIONAIRE ROMANCE
Billionaire heiress Emma Devaroux has been living a safe-yet-mundane existence in Georgia for too long, but when she learns her sister, Joslyn, has been arrested, she heads to New York City to find out what really happened. Unfortunately, as an unemployed debutante, she’s not exactly qualified to be leading an investigation. But help is at hand in the form of the handsome, former military man Jace Lance who happens to be the one who got her sister arrested in the first place.
Jace thinks Emma is crazy for even considering working with him since he’s the one who stopped Joslyn from killing his former client. However, he can’t deny that the sexy southerner is in over her head when her tycoon cousins try to hire him to make sure Emma doesn’t find out the truth about what really caused her sister’s murderous actions.
As they begin to uncover the truth together –and get to know each other intimately – it becomes clear that the more answers they get, the more danger Emma is in. Jace is determined to protect her, but how can he keep her safe when her whole family is in on the conspiracy?

. “Nothing fancy. Just a t-shirt and sweatpants, but at least they’re clean and dry.”
“It’s perfect.” She held out a hand.
“I’m sure they’ll be big, but the pants have a drawstring, so they should stay up.”
“Thanks.” She started to turn to the bathroom, but at the last minute, she twisted back around. “What did you intend to say?”
“When?” he asked, but his clenched jaw told her he knew exactly what she was asking about.
“I walked out of the bathroom and you said you didn’t mean to…something. I’d like you to finish your sentence.”
He cocked his head and considered her for a moment. “I don’t think you really want me to answer that.”
Emma squared her shoulders. “I think I’m a grown woman and I asked you a question.”
“Fine. I didn’t mean to ogle you like a fourteen-year-old virgin. I should’ve been more professional than that.”
The corner of her mouth hooked up. “I knew it! You were affected by that kiss last night.”
“The kiss you started. And yes, I’m a red-blooded male. You can’t expect me to be a robot when a woman like you makes a move.”
Her heart beat faster in her chest as she replayed his words in her mind. She’d gotten what she wanted. An admission that she wasn’t the only one going insane. Now she should turn back and get dressed and pretend this whole conversation never happened. “A woman like me?”
Jace reached up and ran a piece of her wet hair through his fingers. “What do you think you’re doing, Emma?”
She opened her mouth but no words came out. Her second attempt was a bit more successful. “I don’t really know. I kind of like not knowing, though.”
