The first time I saw Alexander Drake, I was looking at his picture on the cover of a Financial Life magazine. I’d have to have been blind not to notice what a total catch he was. Rich, handsome, and completely make believe.
Only, he wasn’t some fake cover model. He was a real person, soon-to-be brother-in-law of my best friend Lucy, and when she introduced us for the first time, I swooned. Hard.
Me. Kayla Benson. Master of male-female relationships, strong, independent, and the one usually being swooned over.
The worst part? While I was busy catching my breath – my eyes so dazed they might as well have been crossed - he hadn’t even bothered to look my way.
Suddenly I wanted nothing more than to ruffle his feathers and see what could happen if I became a force in his life’s bubble.
