Born and groomed to be CEO, Darius is ready to run the family business, except Jeffrey McCall has reserved that position for the oldest son.
Darius McCall’s CEO ambitions have driven his choices since junior high school. He’s worked alongside his father, preparing for the position most of his life.
When Jeffrey McCall names Andrew, Darius’ older brother, as McCall Resorts’ new CEO instead of him, Darius becomes furious. He’s determined to prove that CEO is his rightful place – and spearheading the construction of their new Houston resort is just the way to do that – except Kennedy Slaughter may be a bigger distraction than he expected.
Kennedy Slaughter becomes Slaughter Construction Inc.’s President after the sudden death of her twin brother. She now bears the weight of the company’s success on her shoulders. When McCall Resorts hires her company to build their Houston facility, she works to make her brother proud and fights against anything that will hinder the project’s success – including the undeniable attraction between her and Darius McCall.
What will it take for Darius and Kennedy to secure the success they desire and balance the growing emotional bond between them?

Darius didn’t speak much on the plane ride back to Georgia. He mindlessly rubbed his beard and gazed through the window at the blue skies. His thoughts were consumed with Kennedy Slaughter. Kennedy had been feminine, beautiful, and nothing about her said she liked to get her hands dirty or even enjoyed the line of work she managed. He imagined she’d be the kind of woman interested in the arts—painting, writing, or even a professional dancer—but not construction work.
He couldn’t help the comments that slipped out during lunch and then during the tour of their property. Honestly, he’d dismissed her as being qualified, which she later displayed, the moment he laid eyes on her in the lobby of SCI and furthermore at the jolt of electricity that coursed through him when they shook hands.
There was no denying she felt it too. If she didn’t, she had him fooled by the way her gaze lingered a bit longer after addressing his questions during their meeting. Or the delicate squeeze of his hand during their goodbye-nice-to-meet-you handshake. Her grip was softer than it had been upon their initial greeting. Not a business handshake, but the kind where she practically rested her hand in his like
she wanted him to press his lips against the softness of it. But perhaps it was his vivid imagination interfering with reality. Kissing the back of her hand was all he wanted to do and would have done if their circumstances had been different.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Natasha D. Frazier fell in love with love around the age of twelve because of artists like Babyface, Boys II Men, Whitney Houston, and New Edition. Around sixteen when her mother purchased a romance novel and left it lying around the house untouched, Natasha read it and a spark for the written word had been ignited.
Natasha believes that writing is one of her purposes and contributions to the world. She feels accomplished when she can get a few words written and like blah when life gets in the way. Her hope is that at the end of every novel, readers will feel like they’ve been wrapped in a cozy blanket with a mug of their favorite coffee/tea/warm drink.
When she isn’t reading or writing, she is likely watching movies with her family. Natasha resides in Richmond, TX with her husband, Eddie Frazier, Jr. and their three children, Eden, Ethan, and Emilyn. Her greatest joy and commitment is to her family who she hopes to inspire above all else. One of her many mottos in life is: Faith removes limitations. Natasha and her family attend Parkway Fellowship in Richmond, TX, where she volunteers as a small group leader for elementary students. Natasha is also a member of the Houston Area Alumni Chapter of Jackson State University and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
