“No special someone waiting at home?” He fired questions at her, making sure his plan wouldn’t fail.
“Not that it’s relevant, but no. I have no one at home waiting for me.” He watched as she glanced back down at her lap before looking at him again. “What has my private life got to do with the problems of my father?” Her voice held suspicion.
Duncan had to give her credit. She knew deep down that she was caught in something. She might not know what she’d gotten herself into, but it didn’t matter. Duncan always got what he wanted. Tess Williams had just gone to the top of his list of things he wanted.
“Absolutely nothing.” He looked her over once more making sure that he was making the right decision. His ability to make good and firm decisions was what had kept him on top for so many years. At forty years old he was a successful businessman in his own right. He would have told his father’s lawyers to fuck off if it hadn’t been for his mother. She deserved justice after everything she’d been through. He’d see to it that she was restored in her home.
Tess needed him to stop any damage coming to her father. She was beautiful, and it would be no hardship to bed her. His cock stirred at the image of her laid out on his bed, her pussy dripping wet waiting for his cock. Duncan felt his body respond to the idea of bedding this temptress.
Temptress! In the clothes she was currently wearing she looked more like a drab mouse. Still, any man with half a brain would be able to see the luscious curves hidden beneath the baggy clothes. Would her fire be as passionate as he imagined? Duncan couldn’t wait to explore everything with the woman in front of him. She had a submissive persona about her. He liked that. Duncan liked being in control and having the women submit to him.
He knew he would have her caught between a rock and a hard place. She would do exactly as he wanted, and she wouldn’t have a leg to stand on.
Control. He would have complete control over Tess Williams. He would find the experience pleasurable. He knew how to give his woman pleasure, and he would certainly enjoy keeping Tess occupied in the bedroom.
Certain that he was making the right decision, like any natural predator he struck. “Depending on what you are prepared to do for your father, it can have everything to do with it.”
He sat back waiting for her to speak. She frowned back at him, her eyebrows drawing slightly together. Duncan stared at her face and knew he wanted to see her screaming in orgasm. He shifted in his seat trying to ease the ache in his groin.
She ran a hand through her hair. The wild locks fell all around her face. He pictured them wrapped around his fist as he fucked inside her sweet cunt. The lust began to build inside him. He knew without a doubt a marriage between them would never be a business arrangement and would never be only on paper.
He wanted Tess.
She licked her lips. The action looked nervous to him. Did he affect her as much as she affected him?
“How could my private life have anything to do with the situation where my father has put himself?”
Duncan smiled. Her confusion worked in his favour.
“Tell me, Tess, what are you prepared to do to stop criminal charges being brought against your father?”
“Anything,” she said without hesitation.
He knew she’d give him the right answer. Duncan picked up the phone and began speaking to his secretary. His secretary questioned him on a few points. He made sure to keep his eyes on Tess at all times. Her eyes widened when he said the word marriage. She really had no clue as to what she was getting herself into. Erik should have warned his daughter that he didn’t like to play fair. Duncan got what he wanted by being ruthless. Every person who lived on earth had a price. Duncan always found the sum and was willing to use it to his advantage. Tess’s price was the freedom of her father. She would do as she was told or risk losing her parent. He didn’t see the real connection. Erik rarely talked about his daughter. He’d visited the man’s desk a few times. He possessed no photos of his family at all.
