Scorned by the Boss
Scorned by the Boss is the first book in a trilogy about three women who are best friends.
We all know what that means. There are things we can tell a girlfriend that we would never admit to anyone else. And in these three books, youâll see that Caitlyn, Janine and Debbie work together to help each other through the uncharted jungles of love.
In the first book, youâll meet Caitlyn and her boss, Jefferson Lyon. Caitlynâs been running Jeffersonâs business and personal life for years, but sheâs finally had enough. When she quits her job, though, things start to get interesting â¦
Also, I hope you really enjoy reading Seduced by the Rich Man and Captured by the Billionaire, and I hope youâll let me know what you think of Cait, Janine and Debbie â¦
To friendship. That amazing, wonderful sense of belonging you can only find with someone who knows the real you and loves you anyway.
And to my friends, thanks for everything.
Caitlyn Monroe knocked once, then entered the lionâs den.
She was prepared, like any good lion trainer, for whatever might be waiting for her. A furious, chained beast looking for something to chew on? Probably. A pussycat? Not likely. In the three years sheâd worked for Jefferson Lyon sheâd learned that the man was much more likely to be snarly and aggressive than accommodating.
Jefferson was used to getting his own way. In fact, he accepted nothing less. Which was what made him both an amazingly successful businessman and a sometimes pain-in-the-neck boss.
But this she was used to. Dealing with Jeffersonâs demands was normal. And after the jolt sheâd had over the weekend, she was ready for the normal. The everyday. The routine. She appreciated the fact that she knew Jefferson Lyon. Knew what to expect and wouldnât be blindsided by something shattering coming out of nowhere.
No, thanks, she thought. Sheâd had enough of that Saturday night.
Her boss looked up when she entered, and just for a minute, Caitlyn allowed herself to appreciate the view. Jeffersonâs jaw was strong and square, his blue eyes piercing enough to see through any attempts at deception and his tawny hair cut and styled to lay fashionably at his collar. A modern-day pirate with less conscience, when it came to business, than Bluebeard.
Most of the people who worked for him walked a wide berth around the magnate. Just the sound of him coming down the halls was usually enough to send people scattering. He had the reputation of being a hard man. Not always fair about it, either. He didnât suffer fools easily and expectedâdemandedâperfection.
