Worth the Scandalby Karen Erickson
Synopses & Reviews
Strictly business? Try telling that to her heart…
Worth It, Book 1
Alexander Worth, President and CEO of Worth Luxury Goods, is a man never to be crossed. His unwavering sense of responsibility to the family business requires him to always be in complete and utter control. Until it comes to Tessa Crawford.
She’s quietly professional, shy, voluptuous…and she works for him. Which means she is the one woman he must never touch, no matter how hard his gut twists with need for her.
After rising above her disadvantaged childhood, Tessa knows the last thing she should do is risk throwing it all away by falling into bed with her sexy boss. But on an extended European business trip, all self-imposed barriers burn away in the heat of their sizzling chemistry.
Once back home, though, whispers of corporate espionage turn into full-blown scandal—and Tessa finds out the hard way where Alex’s loyalties lie. Determined to soldier on, she picks herself up and carries on with a secret, yet welcomed burden. Never guessing that Alex will make a reappearance in her life, ready to show her once and for all that family does, indeed, come first.
Warning: Contains a sweet-yet-strong woman, and a bossy alpha male brought to his knees by the woman he desperately loves. Involves enough begging and groveling that the reader may be tempted to “accidentally” leave it for her significant other to “find”. For instructional purposes only, of course!
Karen Erickson has always loved the written word. From being one of the best readers in her kindergarten class to penning romantic stories that never ended about Duran Duran in high school, she always wanted to write. It just took her a while to seriously pursue it. With the birth of her third child came a realization – it’s one thing to talk about writing a book, another thing entirely to actually do it. She’s been published since 2006. Karen’s a native Californian who lives in the foothills below Yosemite with her husband, three children, one dog, and too many cats.
Alexander’s responsibility to the family business requires him to always be in complete control. Until it comes to Tessa Crawford. She works for him, which means she is the one woman he must never touch.
Tessa knows she can look but not touch when it comes to Alex. But on an extended European business trip, fantasy trumps reality. Until they get home, and scandal tears them apart. She soldiers on, but not quite alone. Until Alex makes a reappearance in her life, ready to show her once and for all that family does, indeed, come first.
