The sweeter the revenge, the more bitter the cost.
Ethan Ashford prefers the private playrooms of his exclusive club to the backstabbing elite society into which he was born. But when his billionaire ailing father asks him to attend a gala dinner, he reluctantly agrees. Only to encounter an eerily familiar face that freezes him in his tracks.
He quickly realizes the woman isn’t Joyce, a conniving social climber who almost ruined his family, but her cousin Siena Maynard, a fledgling fashion designer who pings Ethan’s Dom radar from across the ballroom. Even better, her uncanny resemblance to Joyce sparks a plan that will satisfy his hunger for revenge—and his craving to have sweet Siena at his mercy.
Phase one: Dig up every detail about Siena, from her dwindling funds to her brother’s shady connections. Phase two: Back her into a corner with one way out—to accept him as her sole benefactor in exchange for her total submission.
Ethan fully expected to take diabolical pleasure in Siena’s body, tears, and flesh. But he never imagined she’d sink so deeply under his skin, that losing her would destroy what’s left of his soul
Twisted Proposal is a standalone romance in the Central Florida Stories universe. Contains D/s dynamics, intense scenes, and lots of dirty talk.
As he’d hoped it was quiet out in the terrace, they were alone, no one from the party had come out. Siena leaned on the banister. He approached her without making a sound and found her with her eyes closed, ignoring the city skyline. Was she enjoying the solitude or gathering her wits for the upcoming presentation? He assumed the latter. Her breath hitched suddenly, and she turned.
Siena’s turquoise irises fell on him. Ethan stiffened. Her clear gaze stormed through his mind, heart, and soul. The raid surprised him and his stomach clenched as if he’d been punched in the gut. She’d flipped the tables on him. The dominant in Ethan went into full alert mode.
Proceed with caution.
Up close the resemblance to Joyce wasn’t as strong. Her unexpected arrival, his loathing of the Rudloes, and overall family aura had tricked his senses into creating a perfect illusion. Her features were uniquely hers and stunning. Now he noticed the straight nose, elegant cheekbones, and kissable, smiling lips. Her smooth skin.
“Hi.” Slim fingers flew to her chest.
She gave him a curious look. “Have we met?”
“I’d remember if we had.” Grasping the banister’s railing, he turned front. He needed a moment to recover from her assault. One full breath and he’d be back in control of the situation with his defenses bolstered. Siena Maynard was danger wrapped up in an exquisite package. Her initial openness and sincerity were disarming. A studied act or the real Siena? Taking into account her family and relationship with Joyce—a modern Delilah and ultimate backstabber—he'd go for the studied act and keep it in mind as his plan progressed.
“I saw you with the Bernvilles, what brings you to our little celebration?”
“Little?” Her titter was a soft chime in his ears. “I can’t imagine what a big celebration would be like.”
He breathed out ejecting the charming lilt of her voice out of his system. If he didn’t find ways to block her endearing ways, putting together a revenge project was going to be tough…
