I need to hire a wife. But I only want my assistant.


I'm Evan Cook—billionaire tech entrepreneur and widower. Professionally, I’ve got it all. But since my wife died, my personal life has fallen apart. Remarrying seems like the obvious answer, so I place an ad. I'm not asking for much. The ideal woman only needs to be smart, organized, pretty, and helpful—both in and out of bed—without expecting romance. I never thought to look right in front of me…but it turns out that Nia Wright, my sexy, sassy assistant, just might be the perfect candidate.


After an unexpectedly hot night together, I'm ready to stop interviewing strangers and simply marry her. On paper, she ticks every box on my list. Best of all, she's far too sensible to fall for me. I didn’t see the flaw in my logic until it was too late. I never thought I’d lose my heart for the first time. And I definitely never imagined Nia could consume me. But she's harboring a secret that could tear us apart. Can I prove I more than crave her before it’s too late?

DESCRIPTION As a virgin bargirl, Jasmin has passed all the tests of humiliation and shame required for her job. Being barely legal, Jasmin hopes winning the affections of an older man will come easy. Working at an adult bar though requires shattering Jasmin’s virgin innocence. Learning all the kinky, seductive, and sensual ways to please her customers, Jasmin might soon the foreigner of her hottest dreams. EXCERPT “May I ask you a question about Andy, the foreigner you were with when you saw me a few nights ago?” Jasmin asked with a steady, composed voice. “Oh wow!” Melissa exclaimed with big eyes. “You like him?” Jasmin felt herself blushing as she lowered her head in embarrassment. “Don’t feel shy, he’s a nice customer. He was very kind to me when we were together in his room. He tips big, too.” Melissa revealed openly. Although Jasmin wanted to know, she was also much too embarrassed to ask Melissa about the romantic details of her night with Andy. “So what do you want to know about him?” “Well, is he someone special to you? I mean, is he like a boyfriend?” Jasmin inquired awkwardly. “Oh no,” Melissa replied with a smile. “It’s nothing like that. He’s just a customer. I take his barfine the one time only, and Beverly took it the night before. He’s just a butterfly. All of his friends are the same, too.” Melissa divulged easily. “Girl to girl, Sis, why do you ask? Do you like him?” “Well, yes, to be honest. I kind of do, I guess.” Jasmin confessed hesitantly. “Does he come here often?” “Mmmmm....before, yes.” Melissa explained. But I haven’t seen him here since he took me out a few nights ago. Not even his three friends.” “Oh, I see,” Jasmin said with disappointment at the unfortunate news. “I don’t think he’s leaving Cebu until the end of the week. So maybe he will come here again.” Melissa added. “What is today, Tuesday?” “Is he leaving the Philippines?” Jasmin inquired. “No, I think only to Moalboal for a week or two.” Melissa replied. “That’s what he told me in the morning when he barfined me. He plans to come back to Cebu before returning to the U.S.” “So he’s American?” Jasmin asked with a spark of excitement. “Yes, he’s a writer. He lives in California. He and his friends are all taking a long vacation here in the Philippines.” Melissa shared openly. “If he comes here again, I would really like to meet him.” Jasmin said, making no secret of her insatiable interest in Andy. “Damn,” Melissa said a bit coarsely. “You really have a crush on him.” “I really like him,” Jasmin confessed shamelessly. “He has such beautiful blue eyes and that nice smile.” “Yes, he does,” Melissa agreed with a smile and lift of her eyebrows. “So what will you say to him when you meet him? What will you do if he pays your barfine?” “Oh my God...” Jasmin uttered with a gasp as she covered her mouth like a little schoolgirl. “I can’t imagine...”
DESCRIPTION Jasmin, a native to the Philippines, dreams of escaping the harsh realities of life. Growing up in a cross cultural shock, Jasmin dreams of falling in love. Like so many young Filipinas, Jasmin’s quick to dream of starting an innocent romance with one of many American tourists. Jasmin’s colorfully expressed tale of teenage romance is unlike any before it. EXCERPT Jasmin was starving. She felt hungrier than she could ever remember as she looked furtively upon the rows of fresh, tempting mangoes on the table in the Carbon Market in Cebu. “How I wish I had five pesos to buy one honestly,” she thought to herself as she dug into the empty pockets of her disheveled clothes. She dreaded the daunting prospect of having to do three hours’ worth of laundry to earn the simple five-peso coin, and only if she could actually find someone who needed laundry done. She contemplated the shameful prospect of stealing a mango or two, despite the reservations of her conscious. “It would be easy,” she thought to herself, watching the bustling throng of people clustering about the narrow aisles “The market is so busy, no one will notice.” Compelled by the inescapable hunger which drove her, Jasmin set her plan to action, and cautiously emerged from her place of hiding. She walked tentatively towards the table of mangoes, keeping out view of the store-keepers, who were a brother and sister tending busily to customers. She discreetly hid behind one of the customers, a slender woman toting several plastic bags of fish and vegetables, so she could maneuver in reach of the fruit she so desperately wanted. She carefully extended her hand and grasped a mango, quickly pulling it close to her chest. Realizing she had been undetected, she grew bolder, and decided to purloin another fruit. Again, she grasped one of the mangoes, but as she pulled it from the table, the lady whom she was hiding behind accidentally bumped into her. “Oh, excuse me dear.” The lady said to Jasmin before turning and walking away. Jasmin said nothing in reply, the pair of ill-gotten mangoes in her hands in clear view of the two shop-keepers. “Are you planning to pay for those?” the woman asked. Jasmin was quiet, unsure of what to say or do. “They’re not free.” the woman continued. “I’m hungry,” Jasmin said softly at length, throwing herself upon the tender mercies of the shop-keepers. The young woman’s glare softened, replaced by a look of pity. Jasmin’s hopes began to rise as she saw the woman’s face, believing she could keep the precious fruit she held. But the bitter scowl on the face of the woman’s brother told a different story. “It’s okay, big brother. Let her keep them.” The woman said sympathetically as she turned to tend to another customer who had approached the table. “Look at her, she hasn’t bathed in a week and she’s obviously hungry.
