An Indecent Proposition by Carol Marinelli – FictionDB
The first had started with Zander terse and abrupt. Propositkon Greek accent had been confusing for Charlotte, so much carll that she’d actually thought it was her boss Nico in a bad mood. Her phone had rung at six a. It was not one carlo his lawyers, or the sour PA she was more used to dealing with, but the very man himself.
It’s wonderful to have you return my call. You are in Athens, no? I will call you back during office hours. There was a long pause, from both parties. Charlotte cringed because, far from coming across as an efficient PA, she had made it clear she was lying in bed. Zander, well, his pause, followed by a light huskiness to his voice, made her blush further, and not because she was cringing. It was for other reasons entirely. Even if she was desperate to go to the loo, to check on her mum, and, yes, grab a coffee, she would not show it.
Then he spoke again and, on a cold London morning, somehow his voice seemed to caress her. Somehow the elusive billionaire spoke not at her but to her. Whether it sounded efficient or not, she answered with the truth.
This was how it had started. He would call at some ungodly hour, talk for a brief moment and then hang up; she would make coffee, bring it back to bed, wait for the ring of her work phone and then listen to his rich, deep voice. She would write down the messages to relay to Nico, dispense with work, and then they would talk. Just a little more than perhaps she should. The unexpected timing had surprised her, though, of course, Charlotte realised, it was Monday morning there.
Incecent was huddled under the sheets, the weather filthy outside, the sound of rain on the windows and his voice keeping her warm. As a ,arinelli, ‘an international flight attendant’ had been her unwavering response when asked what propositkon wanted to be when she grew up. She had studied language at school, and beyond, had applied for and worked for her first airline of choice, been swiftly promoted through the ranks to become a lead attendant.
How she caarol to be in the air now with her first-class passengers, taking the flight crew their breakfast and lingering in the cockpit at forty thousand feet in the air as they flew towards dawn. I’m far too irresponsible. Incecent chose not to tell him that she nursed her mother at home, and that Amanda’s Alzheimer’s was worsening. Chose not to tell him that, far from hard, working for Nico was the only work she could do.
That being available all hours indecenh the computer or phone, with the handsome wage Nico paid, meant that she could keep the promise her mother had begged for and look after her propositlon home. Lied, because if she told him the truth she might just break down.
So she told him about lunches with friends and cocktails on Friday, told him about the Charlotte she pfoposition once been when she had travelled the world for a living. He wants the jetty, of course, because then that entire stretch of cove would be his. She was not there for discussion, or for negotiation.

Her job was to pass messages on to Nico. Nico had, for an extremely inflated price, bought from Zander an undeveloped house but, newly married and used to the best, he wanted more for his new wife and son. For weeks now his main focus had been on securing the neighbouring land; however, Zander was reluctant to sell. He really wants to speak with you himself.
He smiled because he heard her. Heard her inhale as she did now and then, not through her nose but with a catch in her throat.
It was easier by far to tell this glamorous, exotic man, whom she had never met, that her life was a little more fab than drab, to paint a picture, safe in the knowledge they would probably never meet.
With Zander on the end of the phone, for a few precious moments she got to live the life she invented. Did you wear a hat? Product details File Size: April 1, Sold by: Harlequin Digital Sales Corp.

An Indecent Proposition
I was really looking forward to Zander’s story as I loved his twin brother’s story Nicos. However, it was not in the same league. Charlotte works for Nicos as his PA. She and Zander develop a kind of phone relationship while she is unaware that he is Nicos’ long lost twin brother.
When she finally meets him in ,arinelli, of course, she realizes he is Nicos’ twin.
Charlotte and Zander have a short day and night affair before the truth comes out – Zander is narinelli for revenge and Charlotte was nothing but a pleasurable tool to be used in the war. Zander’s heartlessness was perhaps set up a little too well.
