Elsie hates Pal Thorpe, so if she never speaks to him again, that’s fine with her. But the choice is taken away from her when a serial killer targets her as his next victim. Elsie finds herself reaching out to Pal for help, his dominance taking her breath away as her most secret desires are exposed.

Pal knows that Elsie Burns hates him, and maybe the feeling is mutual. He’s always taken great pains not to cross paths with the sexy little brat, but her desperate need for assistance is greater than his need to avoid her. Soon, he finds himself unable to avoid the brat, his secret fantasies of her refusing to be ignored.

The pair must pretend to be in a relationship, their acting skills put to the test as they attempt to draw out the killer who means Elsie harm. And when Pal finally gets Elsie to respond to his forbidden kink, everything changes between them.
