Piper Winters first met Brody Pearce when he accompanied her adoptive father, Charles Sandoval, to visit her in Geneva where she went to school. Knowing a man as sexy and enigmatic as him wouldn?t be interested in an overweight, shy college kid didn?t keep her body from responding every time he was near or her fantasies from dominating her long, lonely nights. When Brody arrives without Charles the weekend of her graduation, Piper lets yet another disappointment from Charles overrule her common sense and seduces Brody into spending the night with her. When Brody leaves abruptly the next morning after receiving a phone call that raised her suspicions, Piper decides she?s had enough evasiveness and subterfuge from both Charles and Brody and sets out to confront them both. But when she arrives in Atlantic City and spies on the private party Charles is hosting at his casino, she learns more about her father and Brody than she ever wanted to know. For five years Brody had tried to forget the shock of seeing Piper witnessing the assassination attempt on Charles Sandoval, the man he was working undercover for in an attempt to use his alleged connection to notorious drug lord, Antony Pasquino, in order to bring Pasquino?s organization down. He had also tried, and failed, to forget the one night he had had her soft body next to him and her eager response to the hard slaps he had landed on her lush ass. When he hears she?s missing, both Brody and his partner, Ian, rush to Missouri in search of her only to be shocked to find her in her bed, her body suffering the effects of a powerful aphrodisiac. Over the next week, Brody and Ian use every means necessary to rein in Piper?s independent, feisty nature in order to keep her safe from the escalating threats aimed at her. Unfortunately, the sexual discipline they subject her to is met with her wholehearted enthusiasm for everything they dished out, making it impossible for Brody to keep doing the right thing by her until he knew if Charles Sandoval was dead for sure and no longer integral to their case against Pasquino. Nothing is as it seems in Missouri or at the Empire Casino, but Brody wasn?t going to let that stop him this time from going after the only woman who was a perfect match for him.
