THE MAKEOVER MISTAKE

What Happens in Vegas #2

In Vegas, nothing is what it seems...

After losing a bet, successful publisher Michael Chang is "pretending" to play the piano in a Vegas lounge in order to spy on his less-than-trustworthy employee. His espionage is quickly derailed after meeting Thea Danelle, an editor who's been wronged by Michael's company. She's smart and unpredictable…and clearly hiding a naughty side that tempts Michael to distraction.

Thea has gone from frumpy librarian to the young, wild thing she used to be--all thanks to the promise of sensuous delight in the piano player's eyes. And frankly, after losing yet another author to the competition, Thea is ready to forget her professional problems and explore those sexy promises thoroughly. With Michael, she can finally be herself...until the moment Thea learns who he really is.

Here's a tease

“Aren’t you supposed to be playing something?”

Oh, shit! He stabbed the iPad. Damn it. Michael Buble´. At least someone in the audience would be happy. Meanwhile, he looked back at her. “You were saying? How did he get your authors?”

“With his style and his flash, I guess. And by making me look like an idiot.” She took another drink, then cursed under her breath. With a grimace she pulled off the fuzzy knitted thing and dropped it to the floor. And Michael grinned because she definitely had a nice shape: full breasts, creamy skin, and a tease of lace from her bra.

“You don’t look like an idiot to me,” he said, his voice thicker with lust.

“Oh yes I do. I talk about nurturing talent, he chuckles like a paternalistic uncle and talks about how it’s a business, and he’s got the savvy that I don’t.”

“Does he?” Michael wondered aloud. “Have the savvy?”

“Well, he knows how to spout the right stuff, that’s for sure. And he looks the part, too.” She looked down at herself and grimaced. “I need a makeover.”

“It can’t be just looks.”

She sighed and shook her head. “I don’t think it is, and I have my suspicions, but…”

But what? Damn it, she wasn’t talking and he could already tell she was too professional to just say things to anyone. Which meant he needed to get closer to her. As he keyed in the next song, he gestured to the waitress.

Step one: get Thea good and liquored up. Step two: charm her into talking. How exactly he was going to do that he hadn’t a clue, but he had to give it a shot. Especially since she looked like his best chance of getting the lowdown on Chuckles.

An idea popped into his head. “You know, I could help you with that.”

She looked up from her new vodka glass. “What?”

“The new look part.” He might be a numbers guy, but he knew how to dress classy, or at least find people who were the real experts in style. And he’d love to get a better look at her body. “Wait until I get off?” he asked. He hadn’t exactly meant that double entendre, but what the hell. With her hair tumbled around her shoulders and her lips cherry red, some things just came out sexual.

She smiled at him, her mouth curving slow and sensuous. “Why not?”

Perfect answer. Until he started thinking deeper about it. How was he going to find out what he wanted and keep on the ethical side of this impersonation? It’s not like he could sleep the information out of her. And yet, for some reason, his dick was all on board with that idea.

KATHY LYONS writes light, funny, sexy stories for Harlequin Blaze. She loves the faster pace of category books and that her humor can shine through.

She leaves the dark, tortured love stories to her alter ego, Jade Lee.
