Boston University graduate Kameron Santella lands a job with a prestigious publishing house, but instead of getting the job of his dreams, he ends up at the bottom of the corporate ladder, working his butt off in the mail room. One afternoon, he meets a handsome older man named Vern, whom Kameron thinks is a senior editor. Vern takes a liking to Kameron and invites him on a weekend trip to the museum and dinner. Before the outing ends, romance ensues, and Kameron finds himself falling for the silver-tongued devil. But on Monday morning, Kameron gets the shock of his life when he learns that Vern is actually Vernon Henderson, the no-nonsense CEO and publisher of Henderson’s Publishing Company whom everyone seems to fear.
Will Kameron be able to forgive Vern’s deception and build a relationship with the alluring man, especially when not only his career but his heart is on the line?
...“Who is that?” Michael asked Jonathan as they stood in the administration office drinking coffee.
“That is our new employee,” Jonathan said, watching the young man being taken around by Drew Carlo, the Human Resources manager.
“Is he for real?” Michael asked.
“Yes,” Jonathan answered. “His name is Kameron Santella and he’s from New Orleans.”
Michael pouted. “Did you select him?”
“Yes. I thought it was about time Vernon got an assistant.”
“Good idea,” Michael said. “Your cousin is an ogre.”
Drew finally made his way over to them. “Kameron, I’d like to introduce you to our sales manager, Jonathan Richoud, and his assistant Michael Allen. Guys, this is Kameron Santella. He’s training to be an editorial assistant.”
“Kameron and I have already met,” Jonathan said, shaking the new employee’s hand. He’d come dressed for success in a navy suit tailor-made especially for his slender frame. The overhead lights made his curly brownish blond hair glimmer like a halo. Behind the gold-framed glasses, hazel eyes twinkled and seduced when he smiled. He pushed Michael forward.
“Hi, I’m Michael.” His assistant extended his hand for a friendly shake.
“Hi, I’m Kameron. It’s nice to meet you.”
“Ooh, a southern twang. Mr. Henderson is just going to love working with you.”
Kameron stared at him oddly.
“Kameron’s starting in the mailroom first,” Drew said.
“But I thought…” Michael began.
“Mr. Henderson wants Kameron to learn everything about the publishing business,” Jonathan explained. “Then he’s personally going to train Kameron.”
“I hope you’ve had your rabies shot,” Michael said.
“What do you mean by that?” Kameron asked.
Jonathan moved his assistant aside. “Michael is just being silly.”
“Welcome aboard,” Michael said from behind him.
Drew took Kameron off to meet some other employees.
Jonathan turned and faced Michael.
“Has Mr. Henderson met Kameron yet?” Michael asked as they walked back to their office space.
“No,” Jonathan answered.
“I didn’t think so,” Michael replied...
