Watch Me


To achieve her dreams, all she has to do is seduce the enemy…

Shanna York was set to achieve her glittering ballroom dreams and become a dance champion—until her dance partner gets tangled up in scandal and blackmail. With the clock ticking and all her ambitions at stake, the last thing she needs is the gorgeous owner of a sex club tempting her with the forbidden. Or maybe that’s the very thing she needs…

Alejandro Diaz has sizzled for Shanna since he set eyes on her months ago. Her repeated rebuffs will make her surrender that much sweeter. She’s ambitious and driven…but so is he. When she asks for his assistance to ensnare a voyeuristic blackmailer with a video fetish, he doesn’t hesitate to help her stage a bedroom trap. But neither is prepared to face scorching, endless passion, the blackmailer’s real identity—or the undeniable love that grows between them.

EXCERPT

“It appears…” Del looked Alejandro’s way. His buddy had the glint of the devil in his eyes. “That we need to draw this blackmailer out.” 

“Have Kristoff come back and do it again and hope someone makes another recording?” She sounded confused. 

“No,” Alejandro said, catching on to the idea. “Kristoff has been recorded. He has served his purpose. It is interesting that whomever recorded him chose to give the DVD not to him, but to  you.” 

“Exactly,” Del chimed in. “The blackmailer is trying to get to you. He or she wants you to suffer. Kristoff is just one avenue.” 

“So what are you suggesting I do?” 

One more time, Alejandro and Del exchanged a meaningful glance. 

“I think, querida, he’s suggesting that I arrange a scene for you here and see if we can track him through another disc and ‘watch me’ note. Or better yet, catch him red-handed in the act of filming you.” 

Shanna’s jaw dropped. “Are you insane! You think I should come here and get naked and…” 

“Spend a little time showing our members what you enjoy,” Alejandro supplied. 

“I can’t give this creep any more ammunition to ruin me.” 

“He already has everything he needs to discredit you with the judges. But I do not think he’s actually trying to prevent you from competing, as much as he’s attacking you. This feels personal, not professional. If you want to find out who is behind this, you must…expose yourself.” 

“I’m not into that!” 

After last night, Alejandro knew better, but now wasn’t the time to remind her. “Perhaps not. Pretend, if you must. But I believe the plan will work.” 

Shanna hesitated, as if she was pondering his words. “If I agree to this crazy scheme, can I do…whatever it is alone?” 

Alejandro couldn’t resist the grin spreading across his face. “Yes. Plenty of our members would jump through rings of fire to see you touch yourself.” 

“You mean, like, masturbate for an audience?” She turned ghostly white. 

“Even the thought of it makes me hard,” he whispered for her ears alone. 

“Absolutely not!” 

“I will be more than happy to assist you,” Alejandro volunteered. 

“Yeah, I’ll bet.” 

“It would be more believable and more blackmail-worthy if Ali helped you,” Del chimed in. “I will hide in the room and watch all doors, windows, and passersby—see if I can identify our camera-wielding asshole.” 

Her jaw dropped. “It’s bad enough to contemplate getting naked with the Latin Lover, here. But having you watch? Oh, no.” 

That horror on her face was nothing but a lie. Her suddenly hard nipples told him that. She was scared—of herself, of him, of whatever was fueling her ambition. Suddenly, he wanted to get to the bottom of it all.
