That should have been it. I should have told him what he could do with his offer and his money. But I didn't. I could say it was because two million dollars is a lot of cash, but as I stand before him naked, bound, and awaiting the sting of his cane for daring to displease him, I know that's not the truth. I'm not here because he pays me. I'm here because he owns me. Publisher's Note: Unseemly Entanglement is a stand-alone novel which is the third entry in the Dark Overture series.
