Feeling hurt and betrayed, Sierra easily falls under the spell of the handsome and cunning James Northrop.

Losing Sierra to her father is not going to break Chad, but he has to find a way to get her back.

But James does not intend to lose his prize possession willingly, and plans to use his guile and power to remove Chad from the picture for good.EXCERPT
Sierra paused the movie and turned to him. “Hey.”
“What?” he asked, pushing his lips to her hair.
“Let’s just leave.”
“Leave?” he asked, confused.
“Yeah, let’s just take off, get out of here, and leave it all behind. Leave behind all the worries about everything and everyone. Let’s just get out of here.”
“Are you serious?”
“Yeah!” Sierra said, sitting up. “What is actually here for us?”
“I mean, I dunno. I guess nothing. Your job and condo and all that.”
She waved her hand in the air, dismissing him. “So what?”
“So, I wouldn’t want to uproot everything in your life.”
She laughed. “What life? I’m a stripper in Vegas with a two room condo. I have no friends. I only know you and only for two weeks. So. Yeah. Such a life.” She grinned and straddled him, her thighs pressing against his. She ran her fingers through his hair, pushing it back. “We could go anywhere. Do anything.” She brought her face down to his, their lips almost touching. Then, she kissed him, pressing her body closer to his.
He ran his hands over her back, feeling her curves. “Mmm,” he said, “I guess we could.”
“You guess?” she asked in mock shock and hurt.
“Yeah, I guess.” He pulled her back to him and kissed her.
