A traumatized virgin. An incorrigible billionaire womanizer. Can they make it work?

Nick O'Hara is, for lack of a better word, a man-wh***. Look in the Urban Dictionary under that word, and his name will no doubt be mentioned. The only qualifications that he looks for in a bed-mate is that the person is hot and breathing. Mainly hot. He has no desire for an emotional connection with another person, and that's the way he lives his life. He has his fabulous wealth and his reputation as a premiere architect, and that's enough for him. 

Until Scotty James. 

Scotty is a graduate student at Columbia University in New York City. She's broken from traumatic experiences from her years in foster care and living on the streets. 

Scotty has a dark secret that has led her to protect herself to the point where, at the age of 23, she has never been on a date. She has never even been kissed. 

Yet Scotty has a vulnerability that is intoxicating to Nick, because, deep down, he knows that he is as broken as she. 

When Nick pursues Scotty, it seems that she is the only woman who doesn't want to be with him. At first she's a challenge, but Nick soon finds himself falling in love for the first time in his life. With a woman who wants nothing to do with him. 

Can Scotty overcome her trust issues and fear to let Nick in? Or will she prove to be too broken to trust? 

This is a full-length, 95,000 word, New Adult novel with mature themes, an alpha male and a vulnerable and broken virgin. Also featuring a loyal gay bestie. :)

FEARLESS:
Beautiful heiress Dalilah Gallagher is a child artistic prodigy who has lost her way. Because of harsh criticism in her formative years, she found that she had lost her artistic voice, and, now age 20, she has spent 9 years trying to get it back.

Her struggles leads her to nude modeling gigs in New York City. These gigs hopefully will help her find her passion for art once more. What she does not expect is that they will also help her find the one person who might be able to help her regain her artistic voice.

Luke Roberts has the opposite background from Dalilah. Raised by a solidly working class fisherman, Luke is a broke and brilliant artist who has yet to get his big break. His gifts attract the attention of a wealthy benefactor, Blake Nottingham, whose own fascination with Dalilah leads him to commission Luke to present him with a painting of her.

As Luke and Dalilah's professional relationship gradually leads to love, Dalilah finds herself playing a dangerous game of deceit. Her motivation is to help Luke gain a platform for his work, so she attempts to manipulate Nottingham into giving him this. 

But when the manipulated becomes the manipulator, Dalilah finds that she has gone too far.

What happens next may spell the end of Dalilah's relationship with the man of her dreams, and the beginning of her worst nightmare. 

SECRETS AND LIES
Dalilah Gallagher had to make the most painful decision of her life - say goodbye to the guy that she loved, in order to save his career. For she knew that Nottingham would stop at nothing to ensure her loyalty to him. And she also knew that her continued loyalty to Nottingham was the only thing stopping him from destroying Luke’s artistic career, before it ever got started. 
Living a loveless and destructive marriage to a cruel man seemed to be Dalilah’s fate. But, as long as Luke could achieve his dreams of artistic success, her sacrifice was worth it. 

Indeed, Luke’s career took off due to Nottingham’s largesse and connections, so that he became a critical darling and budding international superstar. But none of that made him happy, because he lost the one thing that meant the most to him - Dalilah. 

Can the star-crossed lovers find a way out of the trap that was of Dalilah’s making? 

Or will the secrets and lies continue to keep them apart? 

TRAPPED
Dalilah Gallagher is finally trapped by Nottingham. Pregnant and still married to Nottingham, Dalilah foresees that he will have custody of the child, an outcome which is untenable to Dalilah and Luke. 

In desperation, Luke and Dalilah flee, in an attempt to stay one step ahead of the wily and sadistic Nottingham. However, Nottingham knows information about Dalilah’s family, which enables him to blackmail her into doing whatever he wants. 

Will Dalilah find a way out of her latest dilemma, or will she remain trapped in Nottingham’s clutches forever?
