Trial By Partnership
Kami was surprised to inherit her dead husband’s 50% ownership in a high–end home construction business. After years of being controlled and nothing more than her ex’s eye–candy, she yearns for a chance to prove that she has worth. She won’t let another man hold her back again. Problem is, the 50% share comes with a partner who also owns 50%.
Reid MacAndrew is furious that his former partner went against their agreement and left his share in their company to Kami. It isn’t that he doesn’t think her capable in business. But it should be his business. He’d started it and built it up, not her ex. Even more, how can he bear to work with the woman he has secretly loved for years?
When it looks like they have no choice but to work together, Reid lets Kami know that he’ll live with the situation, but that there are rules she has to follow while she’s learning, HIS rules that he WILL enforce the old–fashioned way. He expects her to run away screaming; instead, she agrees to the stipulations. And the first time she meekly puts herself bare–bottomed over his lap for her just deserts, he starts to realize that his plan to drive her away just backfired…in a big way.

On a personal level, she still hasn’t gotten over her divorce seven years ago. They had been young, naïve, and in possibly more lust than love, but she still agonizes over the marriage that ended so badly.
