Leverage Part One

(2013)
(The first book in the Leverage series)
A Novella by
Boston Kincaid is ruthless when comes to getting what he wants - and from the minute he sees Julianna Holly, he'll stop at nothing to have her in his bed. It's all about finding the right leverage, right? When Julianna finds herself within Boston's crosshairs, she doesn't stand a chance. But neither realizes how one indecent proposal has the power to change their lives forever.

EXCERPT:

Boston rubbed his mouth to keep his excitement at bay. Yes, to the point. "As I mentioned before, I know a bit about you. The fact that you dropped out of college to care for your brother says a lot about your character." Ironic, that he would admire her for such a selfless gesture and yet he was about to ask her to compromise her dignity and integrity. If he weren't such a bastard, he might've felt a twinge of conscience. But just standing in her presence, was enough to fire his blood. "Let me get straight to the point. I want to help you with your brother. But before you get the wrong idea about my intentions, know this... nothing comes for free. What I'm about to offer you might be shocking, it might even offend you. But I'm a man accustomed to getting what he wants and right now I want you."
Julianna's mouth dropped open at his frank statement. Her voice rang with indignation as she asked, "What the hell are you talking about? What do you mean you want me? Do you mean... ?" She couldn't even say the words, which he found quite endearing. Hell, everything about her he found delicious. She swallowed and stared. "I think you have the wrong impression of me. I'm not a whore so if you're about to make me an indecent proposal, save your breath." She rose on unsteady feet, wobbling on her cheap heels. "Good day Mr. Kincaid."
She turned to leave but Boston wasn't about to let her go. "It's a pity your brother can't get the help he needs. I would imagine that if you had more resources at your disposal, Tom might actually walk again. I've done a little research and I found a facility in New Zealand with some cutting edge technology and therapy designed to help repair spinal injuries, much like your brother's. I imagine, a man like him, who was once very active, dreams of someday getting out of that wheelchair."
"What are you saying?" she asked.
"Don't play coy. Simply that with more resources, your brother might get the help he needs. If you were agreeable to my business proposition, I would happily provide those resources to your brother. Actually, it's a very simple arrangement with mutual benefit so there's no need to take offense. Honestly, women have been bartering their bodies since the beginning of time so it's hardly a new concept."
"How dare you dangle something like that in front of me. Who are you? What kind of man are you?"
"I'm a man who gets what he wants. By any means possible."
