“Laura Kaye has a gift for writing beautifully damaged men and Caden Grayson leads the pack with enough vulnerability to twist your heart in knots.” ~ NYT Bestseller Tessa Bailey
When accountant Makenna James finds herself stranded in a pitch-black elevator, she can’t help but wonder about the stranger stuck with her. All she noticed about him before the lights went out was a dragon tattoo; all she knows now is his sexy, gruff voice in the darkness.
Caden Grayson is inked, pierced, scarred on the inside and out—and terrified of the dark for reasons he’d rather not remember. Trapped in his worst nightmare, only the sweet voice of the red-headed beauty distracts him from his fear. And, oh, man, as the hours pass and the darkness heats up, that’s nothing compared to her touch.
One pitch-black elevator…
He’s all rough edges and she’s pin-striped skirts, but in the darkness they open up and reach out without any preconceptions to hold them back. But as attraction grows and sparks fly, will they feel the same when the lights come back on?
“A beautiful read with Kaye’s trademark sexiness and smart storytelling! Makenna and Caden are magic together–I loved this book!” ~ NYT Bestseller Jennifer Probst

At first, he thought he imagined it: her fingers, exerting pressure against the back of his neck. But she continued on with the steady stroking. He just wasn’t sure. He concentrated all his focus on the movement of her hand and…I didn’t imagine it that time, did I? There it was again—her fingertips pulling him toward her.
Please let me not be imagining that.
He licked his lips and moved his head forward just an inch or two. God he wanted to kiss her. His fingers itched to finally thread their way into all that red hair and his lips fell open in anticipation of claiming her mouth. He wanted to taste her. He wanted to feel her under him.
“Yes, Caden, yes.”
It was all the confirmation he needed.
He pushed himself across the carpet until his chest encountered her side and he slowly bent his head down so he didn’t hurt her in his blind impatience. His mouth found a cheek first and he pressed his lips against the soft apple of it and she moaned and wrapped her arms around his broad shoulders. His right hand landed in a pile of silky curls and the satisfaction he felt at finally touching her hair made him swallow hard.
“So soft,” he murmured, meaning her hair and her skin and the mound of her breast pressing against his chest where he was atop her.
Caden let out his own moan when her lips pressed against the skin in front of his ear. She exhaled roughly and the rush of her breath over his ear caused goose bumps to break out on his neck.
He trailed soft kisses across her cheek until he found her lips.
And then he couldn’t go slow anymore.
And neither could she.
