For the Love of Fashion by Cara Riley

Can Caroline bounce back after her career takes a nose dive due to the negligence of an uncaring, disengaged man who ran her down without so much as an apology? Elliott Maxwell is busy saving his grandmother’s company from his scheming stepmother. He decides he needs a mole and thinks Caroline is perfect for the job. Previously… Elliott arrived at Caroline’s house where he decided he didn’t want her to go to work for his stepmother. Instead, he wants her for himself.

Episode 6

“I want you to come work for me.”

“Are you freakin’ serious?” Caroline stepped away from Elliott and looked at him like he’d grown a three arms.

“Yes, as a matter of fact, I am,” grabbing her back against him. “I’ve never mixed business with pleasure,” he allowed his eyes to roam her face, stopping on her lips. “But for you, I’m willing to make an exception.” Crushing his mouth to hers, he assaulted her mouth. She moaned, and opened her lips to him, sucking his tongue into her mouth. She heard his sharp intake of breath and knew his passion matched hers. Caroline pulled away from him, breathing hard. They stared at each other, neither one knowing what to say. “Elliott, there is no way I could work for you and you know it.” Walking further away from him, she tried to get her breathing under control. She didn’t feel him come up behind her.

“I won’t say I’m sorry, Caro, because I’m not,” nuzzling her neck, he murmured, “but I need you in my office more than my bed.” Letting her go, he stepped away, moving towards the window.

She didn’t want to admit she missed his touch, but the minute his hands moved away from her, she felt a chill pass through her body.

“Caroline, I can see that this is causing you much distress. I’m so sorry,” Elliott said, walking back over to her, “I give you my word to keep my hands to myself if you agree to work for me.”

She could see that he was telling the truth. Now it was up to her to decide if she could live by the same rules. Looking at his mouth, her tongue snaked out and licked her lips. Hearing him groan, her eyes flew up to his where she saw a deep desire mirroring her own.

“Caroline, I’m still a man. You’re still a very beautiful woman. So you are not going to be able to look at me like that if I am supposed to keep my hands off of you.”

Blushing furiously, she turned away and walked towards her kitchen. Asking over her shoulder, “So what would my job entail exactly?”

Following her, Elliott answered, “I haven’t had a PA in a number of years, so for right now I can tell you that you would be keeping my calendar, taking a bunch of my calls for me and returning emails. I need to figure out what you know about the company and how I can best use you to infiltrate the design department.

“You still need me to gather information on Kitty?”

“I’m not sure. I’m still thinking on that one.”

As he was talking, Caroline felt herself get excited. This sounded like her dream job. She knew Maxwell’s inside and out from working in the trenches for over four years. She knew she’d make him an excellent PA. She just didn’t know if she could keep her hands to herself.
