In the Arms of the International Arbitrageur
Swiss billionaire and Extreme Jacuzzi Enthusiast Jacques-Offe Petitemort has always played fast and loose with ladies’ hearts, indoor plumbing and the IMF. But when Interpol assigns Virginie Croque-Monsieur to investigate the suspicious drowning death of one of Jacques’s VIP guests at his secluded—and some say Satanic—St. Moritz chalet, she knows more is at stake than jet-set investors and faulty water jets. The international monetary markets are at risk, and Jacques is either the master manipulator behind it all or the only financier who can fix them. Naughty nights spent in his heated watery depths lead her no closer to the truth. Can a girl from Gstaad resist the allure of the gold ingots lining his hot tub, or will her carefully-constructed career fall victim to his liquid assets?
Jacques knows vixen Virginie is out to trap him like a fox and ferret out his financial secrets. This Swiss miss may appear sweet, but beneath her stretchy Speedo is a mind that rivals the intricate locking mechanism of a Berne bank vault. It’s not just her mind and bodacious body that jaded Jacques j’adores—he’s believes he’s finally found the femme to fill the pothole of his private agony. Can he convince her before she cuffs him, or will he steal her heart and be free to love at last?
