From the New York Times bestselling author of Off the Clock comes a story of love, hate, and the fire that ignites when the two collide...

Dr. Elle McCray has a plan. Work hard. Be the best. And do it alone. After her ex-husband's betrayal, she's learned being feared is a hell of a lot easier than being humiliated. So when trouble personified, Lane Cannon, dares to flirt with her, she shuts him down cold. Too gorgeous. Too cocky. And his job as The Grove's sexual surrogate is to sleep with patients. No, thank you.

Former escort Lane Cannon has spent enough years with people looking down on him. Stupid. Trailer trash. Rent boy. He's heard it all. He's worked too hard to shed his past to let some haughty doctor cut him down. But something about Elle's ice queen act has his dominant instincts perking up and his body taking notice. He can't walk away.

After an evening of verbal sparring turns into a night of steamy hate sex, Lane's ready for round two. But Elle proposes a business deal. How better to keep things strictly physical than to pay him for his services?

Lane wants her, not her money. But he'll play along in exchange for one thing--all the control. It's only supposed to be a dirty little fling between colleagues, but these two are about to learn a lesson in the hour.
