Title: A Final Deal by Nadia Lee
Publication date: August 15th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
One thing I’ve never lacked in life is money. I was born to it. I’ve made it hand over fist. I have more than I know what to do with.
But all that money couldn’t give me Faith Mortimer, a damaged heiress with secrets of her own. I found her irresistible two years ago, and would’ve laid my empire at her feet…until she betrayed me.
Now she barges into my office, offering marriage, ostensibly to help me fulfill the conditions of my father’s hateful deal. Although I toss her out, I’m curious. Once I realize how desperate she is, I make a counter offer that leaves her vulnerable and defenseless.
However, I never counted on my own machinations leaving me exposed in return…and both our hearts are going to break before this is over…

He leans against the wall, his limbs relaxed. His hooded eyes show nothing. “I’ve decided you’ll do.”
It takes me a moment to register what he just said. “What?”
“Your proposal. Surely you haven’t forgotten?”
“Whatever happened to getting on my knees?” Because if that’s the condition of this ridiculous…change of heart, I’m going to disabuse him of the notion.
He waves it away. “You happen to be the lowest cost provider.”
I stop for a second, then laugh. Of all the things I imagined… “So, just like that? You don’t even know what I’m going to want in return.”
“Money, of course.” His gaze sweeps around my place, then lingers on my body. “A hundred thousand in cash seems like a fair price.”
“The portrait you’re going to get is worth millions.”
“So? You aren’t worth millions. Like I said, I can always go to someone else.”
I clench my hand. What wouldn’t I give to bloody his nose. But that would solve nothing. My PI failed to come through with Jordan, and as insulting as it is, a hundred thousand will take care of the immediate problem: ensuring that Mom gets the best care until… My breath catches, and I can’t continue the thought.
“Cash, upfront, you pay the tax,” I counter.
“No on upfront. How do I know you won’t take the money and run?”
“I’m a woman of my word.”
“Your word.” A small muscle in his cheek tics once. “When you disappeared, as I recall, it was without a word.”
If he thinks it’s a clever barb, he’s wrong. “Only when the situation warrants it.”
“Half upfront. Cash. I’ll handle the tax since you obviously can’t handle money.” Blake gives me a cool stare. “And you’ll move in with me immediately.”
