Accountant Carl Davenport had all but given up on women after his bitter divorce. Until he met the beautiful and mysterious Jean Fleming, a young seductress whose every word, every kiss, is laced with lies and betrayal. Jean’s lifestyle is extravagant, expensive… and dangerous. If her gentlemen benefactor ever found out she was seeing Carl on the side, she would lose everything. Though Carl offers Jean his heart, love won’t pay for her luxury apartment. Driven by his desperation to win Jean, Carl gets caught up in a complicated and treacherous game of high-stakes theft, embezzlement, and fraud. He knows he’s risking everything—even his life—but he’s in so deep now, he just can’t afford to lose.
