EXCERPT: Opportunity by Kennedy Layne
Gareth Nicollet had been born into wealth, but he’d learned at an early age that money wasn’t everything it was cracked up to be.
Regrettably, he’d made a meaningful choice early on in his life that now threatened his future with the woman he loved.
Cynthia Ellsworth valued many things, but trust and loyalty were at the top of her list. She’d always known the man who shared her bed had secrets, but she never thought in a million years that he had the ability to destroy her career and her heart with a single blow.
Someone once said that greed was balanced by fear, but that wasn’t entirely true when there was nothing left to lose. Unfortunately, Gareth’s secret is the very reason the roulette wheel is spinning and Cynthia’s life hangs in the balance.

Cynthia sucked in a breath when Gareth slid his fingers under the waistband of her lace panties. His fixed gaze at her eyes’ opaque reflection in the windowpane never wavered from hers, which told her that he intended to watch every single expression of euphoria that crossed her features.
They both liked to play games in the bedroom, although relishing in each other’s pleasure had never been done quite so publicly.
She wasn’t worried at the off chance someone was watching.
They were too high up for the traffic below to make out what anyone was doing behind the glass panels. Yet his comment about binoculars and telescopes had certainly added an exciting edge of intrigue to their evening.
“You do like playing with fire, don’t you?” Gareth murmured, wrapping an arm underneath her breast to pull her tighter against his chest. “Spread your legs, Cyn. Let’s see who wins this duel.”
She loved a challenge, but he always managed to up the ante by that last all in chip count.
“And if I win?”
Gareth barely grazed his middle finger over her clit, but it was enough to awaken every single nerve in her entire body. She didn’t spread her legs for him as much in obedience as she did out of instinct. Her knees had almost buckled at the first simple caress. She didn’t doubt there was more to come that would have her begging for her release.
“You won’t,” Gareth replied with total confidence. “You’re soaked, Cyn. And we haven’t even begun to explore your depths.”
