 She was less than a foot away as she stared him down

with anger pouring off of her. He'd seen her angry before but he  expected steam to start coming out of her ears at any moment. His own  anger was rising to the surface. How dare she talk to him like that?

He pressed the button down on his phone. "I want zero interruptions into  this room. I don't care if the place is on fire," he growled into the  intercom.

"Yes sir," came the reply and then the connection went dead.

He started stalking towards her. She seemed to realize her predicament,  because she began to retreat fast. Her temper evaporated, as her eyes  rounded. He must have looked a little more frightening than he thought  but his cool had left and his anger was boiling over.

She was the one who left him because he was poor. She was the one who  thought she was still miss high and mighty. She kept trying to rub in  his face he'd been replaced by her boyfriend. He couldn't even think, he  was so mad.

He backed her up until her legs hit the table. She stood pressed up  against the hard surface. There was no escape. Her breath quickened,  making her breasts rise and fall faster against his chest. Her cheeks  were flushed, her lips were swollen from her nervously chewing on them.

Her eyes were still rounded in fear. If it had only been fear, he may  have been able to pull out of his anger but he also saw some excitement  in their depths. She still wanted him but she was fighting herself, as  much as she was fighting him. He needed her now!

He felt a low growl rumble from his throat. He closed the small gap  between them, crushing his lips onto hers. He grabbed her neck to pull  her closer, pushing his tongue against her lips, demanding entrance.

She reached her hand up to push him away but instead she ended up  gripping his shirt. She couldn't stop her own body's betrayal. She was  on fire as his lips turned from almost abusive to seductive. He accessed  her mouth and then tangled his tongue with hers.

She could feel the heat pooling in her core. He deepened the kiss,  pulling her closer to him. She didn't know where her body ended and his  began. Her hands slipped up behind his neck pulling him even closer.

Chapter One

Derek Titan looked around the crowded room and had to force himself not  to yawn. He couldn't stand attending events where everyone drank too  much, laughed too loud and tried far too hard to impress each other.

Derek knew he was what women considered a real catch. Hell, a stupid  magazine had done a write up on Seattle's most eligible bachelors and  placed his picture as number one. He'd been furious and tried to have  himself taken out of the article but his attorney had spouted some crap  about freedom of speech. Since the article, he was being approached by  even more materialistic females.

The magazine listed his net worth as equal to Bill Gates. They'd also  said he was tall, dark and handsome. He stood over six feet, with broad  shoulders and muscles that rippled throughout his entire body. He hated  gyms but he ran every morning and sometime in the evenings too. He'd  discovered at a young age running was a great form of relieving his  stress.

He knew the second best way to relieve stress was to take a woman to  bed. The minute he was done with her, he walked away, though. There were  many women who tried to get him to stay but no one held his interest  longer than it took him to button up his pants.

After his heart had been shattered by Jasmine, he wasn't interested in  any other woman. He figured once he got his revenge, he'd think about  settling down.

A woman breezed by him wearing entirely too much perfume and he snapped  back to reality. He sighed as he grabbed a glass of wine from a passing  waiter.

These parties were all about who had the most to offer. The women were  on the prowl and the men were fishing. He wasn't interested. If he  wanted a woman, he could have one at any time. He wasn't interested in  superficial, wanna-be socialites.

He watched as a couple of ladies passed by, dripping in diamonds and low  cut gowns. They were trying to catch his eye and normally he'd make  their day by flirting a little, giving them the impression they stood a  chance but today wasn't that day. He had a raging headache and he was  pissed he'd been summoned.

"There you are, boy. What are you doing hiding in the corner?" Daniel Titan, his father, walked up and questioned him.

"I'm wondering why I'm here when I'd rather be home with a scotch and my feet up," Derek replied.

"You're here because you received a request from your father. I have  some things to discuss with you later," Daniel said in his no nonsense  voice.

"And it couldn't wait until later?" Derek questioned.         



"Oh live it up a little. You're always so busy adding a few more million  to your bank account you don't stop to smell the roses," his father  admonished him.

"I live it up plenty, hell I was in Milan last week."

"You were in Milan on business, that doesn't count," his dad told him, a bit exasperated.

"For me, the ideal time is mixing business with pleasure," Derek told his father, with a waggle of his brows. Both men relaxed.

"Seriously, Dad I do have a headache. What's so important it couldn't  wait until morning?" Derek asked. Once Derek had made his first million  he'd moved his father to the city and Daniel was the Chief Financial  Officer of his huge corporation. His father was brilliant and had helped  the company grow further. His dad may have had several hard times while  Derek was growing up but he was essential to Derek's company now.

"David Freeman's here tonight and he's talking to some people, trying to  get investors," Daniel answered him. Derek was on instant alert. He  searched the room, spotting his enemy. He was the one who'd made him the  cut throat business man he'd turned into.

"It's far too late for him. By tomorrow morning his company will be  mine, no matter what he tries tonight," Derek said with a sneer.

As Derek watched David, a beautiful woman approached him, stepping up on  her tip toes to kiss him on the cheek. David didn't even bother to turn  and acknowledge her, which she didn't seem to notice. The man noticed  nothing around him if it didn't have dollar signs on it, not even his  stunning daughter. Derek's eyes narrowed to slits. He hadn't seen  Jasmine for ten years and those years had been very good to her.

Her dress was skin tight on top, dipping low in both the front and back.  Her curves were even more pronounced now that her body had matured. She  had dark hair, which was swept up in a classic bun, with tendrils  floating around her delicate face. Her dark brown eyes had once  mesmerized him. They had a hypnotic quality, with their deceiving  innocence shining through and the thick, dark lashes surrounding them.

He was angry at the tightening in his gut at just the sight of her.  She'd nearly destroyed him and yet he still wanted her. His full revenge  included her though, so he'd have her in his bed again and then she'd  be begging him not to leave.

"I'm leaving now. He won't make any progress tonight and tomorrow's a  busy day for me. I appreciate you calling, though," Derek said. He then  turned away and walked out of the room, without once looking behind him.

Jasmine spotted Derek across the room and her insides went up in flames.  She narrowed her eyes in anger at the man as he walked around like he  owned the place. She knew the kinder, gentler side of him but that boy  was long gone. He may have never really existed beyond her imagination.

He wasn't the boy who had taken her virginity and promised her forever.  She thought back to that summer so many years ago. She'd waited at the  abandoned church all day hoping something had happened to make him run  late. When the sun had faded from the sky she'd finally had to admit he  wasn't coming. It had all been lies.

She watched him now, as he turned and walked from the room. He was by  far the sexiest man in the room, with his custom tuxedo and piercing  blue eyes. He had a delectable body, even though he sat in an office all  day. Her heart fluttered, remembering those long summer nights of  running her hands and tongue down those hard muscles.

She had no idea her world was about to flip upside down. She was soon to  learn the man she thought of as her hero, her father, wasn't who she  really thought he was. This would truly be her last night of innocence.  When morning came, nothing would ever be the same again.

As Derek disappeared around the corner, she couldn't help but think back  to the summer ten years before. It had been a time when she'd really  believed in fairytales and magic.

She'd grown up very wealthy in the small town outside of Seattle  Washington. Her father owned a multi-million dollar company and she'd  always had more than most people could ever hope to.

He'd chosen their home in the small town, she'd thought so she could  live in a nicer area. She'd later learn he'd really chosen to live there  so he could be the big man on campus. He liked lording his wealth over  all those around him but she didn't know any of that then. She'd been  young and naïve. She'd learn in the next few months how much her father  had kept from her.
