A tabloid scandal unites a powerful mogul and a woman from the wrong side of the tracks in this tantalizing novel from the USA Today bestselling author of Bound Beneath His Pain and the Club Sin series.

The multimillionaire owner of a chain of successful Irish pubs, Gabe O’Keefe loves being in the spotlight almost as much as he loves women. But when all his secrets are exposed in a shameless tabloid, his glistening reputation takes a hit. What hurts most is learning who sold him out: sweet and sensual McKenna Archer, his own employee. Gabe thought he could trust her. But now he’s got bigger problems than keeping his hands off McKenna.

After putting a difficult past behind her, McKenna would never betray Gabe. But she knows someone who would: her brother, a compulsive gambler who owes money all over town. To make things right, McKenna will have to set aside her feelings for her boss. Easier said than done. Gabe oozes pure temptation. But when they team up, McKenna sees that he isn’t the manwhore she always thought. He’s strong. He’s real. And the heat between them is the only thing that makes sense anymore.

This is a delightful book, with strong, likeable characters, emotional angst, a complex plot and steamy sex scenes. It wraps up the Dirty Little Secrets series, and we finally find the source of the information the tabloid “Gotcha” has been printing about the owners of several local sex clubs.

McKenna Archer has been in love with her boss, Gabe O’Keefe, for some time, but he won’t blur the line between boss and employee-until he believes her guilty of spying on him and his friends and turning the information over to a tabloid. His treatment of her is horrible-as his guilt when he finds out that her brother, not McKenna, is the culprit.

McKenna has been bailing her little brother out of serious scrapes for years. She loves Gabe, but when push comes to shove, will she chose the man she loves, or the brother she has always protected?

The suspense in the story starts with the first chapter and continues to the epilogue. Expect some explicit sex scenes, including BDSM, McKenna is a woman who has overcome the tragedy of her childhood to support herself and her brother. Her strength and self-confidence are inspiring. Gabe is not particularly endearing in the beginning, but as he works to overcome his guilt, we see the loyal, determined friend and lover he really is.
