EBOOK VERSION ONLY | Preview/Buy logo_amazon  Smashwords | Apple | B&N

I've been asked for years to bring this book to other formats and not let Amazon have it all to themselves.

I promised I would do so in 2013 and now as the year is finally over and I'm trying to get all my ducks in a row as I head in the 2014.

So in the following weeks or a month depending on #Smashwords distribution system this book will be available to other bookstores around the Internet.

But for now, it's available on Smashwords as an ebook and of course it's still available on Amazon.

It should be noted that on Amazon, if you buy the paperback version you can get the ebook version for a lower price. (It's in their matchbook program.)

Now the biggest secret in my book selection is available everywhere and it's a secret you can tell everyone.

You have my permission to share!

And don't forget to leave a review wherever you pick up the book!

Thank you so much in advance!

Short description

Perfect Opportunities Lead To Wicked Affairs

Extended description

Ezekiel Chambers knew he would never find a woman that would allow him to marry and though he longed for a happy family life, since his business life was so successful, his father was never going to give one inch to grant him that opportunity.

Reluctantly, he is convinced to go to his high school reunion, but upon meeting the mysterious woman, Ezekiel forgets what he wants and focuses on what he desires.

Too bad he won't be able to keep her.

When Grae is given the opportunity to sleep with the man of her dreams without him knowing her identity, this shy reclusive young woman steps outside of her shell and transforms herself into the woman of his dreams.

both time and money in the publishing process, writers will leave inspired to take their book

income, even if they just have one book!
