“Leah’s Seduction” is a steamy romance between Gianni Rinaldi, a successful New York businessman, and Leah Ivers, a college graduate pursuing a career in marketing. They meet when their careers collide, and Gianni is intent on discovering if Leah is the author of a journal that has fallen into his hands. The pages are filled with handwritten confessions of a woman’s fantasies, and Gianni becomes obsessed with both the journal, and the woman he believes wrote it. The story unfolds over a series of novellas. Each is an episode in the ongoing tale of seduction into the secrets of the fashion industry, and the temptations of love.
Gianni Rinaldi was introduced in the Touched By You series, the endearing romance of Tanner and Natalie. He was the owner of GR Showroom, and showcased Natalie’s fashions. He was a source of jealousy for Tanner, although his relationship with Natalie was strictly professional. But he was deeply involved in his own romance, which you can now read about in “Leah’s Seduction.”
Excerpt from Leah’s Seduction 1
Stepping inside the lobby of the grand hotel, Leah felt instantly diminished. The luxury and opulence contrasted with the simple dress she wore, and made her acutely aware that it was too conservative. And that the matching pumps were too casual.
Bronze drapes hung every few feet, skimming the polished floor. Looking up, she saw they extended all the way to the high ceiling, past the upper mezzanine. Huge, plush, matching velvet couches lined the walls. The quilted backs were higher than the heads of the guests who sat in them, nearly dwarfing even the taller men.
The dark and light brown pattern in the floor was in the shape of endless mazes, making Leah dizzy. She only hoped she wouldn’t slip in her dress shoes and go sliding down the center lobby aisle. Gripping the strap of her bag, she searched for a hint as to where the symposium was being held. Distracted, the packet of information about the event slipped from her hand and skidded away.
Leah took two quick steps to retrieve it. Before she could reach it, the tip of a man’s black leather wingtip shoe caught the corner of the envelope, arresting its slide across the floor. And when she bent down to scoop it up, the man attached to the shoe did too.
He reached it first, and lifted the packet in his hand as he stood. Then he held out his other hand to help her up. The first thing that hit Leah was the scent of his cologne. It wasn’t strong like some, but enticing.
With her hand in his, Leah stood, catching the first glimpse of his face on the way up. His sandy blond hair was messy, with a few spikes gelled into place. His blue-gray eyes pierced into her, and her pulse sped up. Whoever he was, this guy was sexy as hell.
He handed her the packet, which she took in her shaking hand. “I see you are attending the symposium.”
Just those few words rocked her soul. The timbre of his voice and his confident tone affected her in a way she didn’t recognize.
