"Good," he breathed. "Look at how far we've come. It wasn't that long ago I'd have you going all to pieces on me just for a little tie-up. But you've learned I can be good to you, haven't you?"

"Yes, sir." Her voice was barely audible. For the man who can have anything, she's the perfect plaything. But he's not who she thinks he is, and the more she comes under his spell, the less he's willing to pretend.
