Seduced by the Hero

By: Pamela Yaye

Perfection in every kiss...

After a decade abroad, international playboy Immanuel Morretti is ready to reunite with his family and share the good life with that one special woman. When he rescues Dionne Fontaine from a dangerous attacker, he knows in his heart that he’s found her. Despite the desire igniting between them, the self-made Southern beauty refuses to take their sizzling affair to the next level.

With her life-coaching center taking off, Dionne is poised for game-changing success. Then this dashing, sensuous man comes into her life and his tenderness and passion tempt her to believe in happy endings. From Atlanta to Seattle to Venice, Immanuel showers her with romantic dinners and intimate nights beyond her wildest dreams. But explosive secrets from their pasts could sabotage their thrilling vision of love...and a future together...





Dionne nodded, but she didn’t move.

Immanuel didn’t either. Couldn’t. Felt as if his feet were glued to the ground. Their eyes met, held for a beat. Lust exploded inside his body, threatened to consume him. Their connection was undeniable, but it was nothing he’d ever act upon. He’d been burned by love before, betrayed by a woman he’d thought was his soul mate, and he wasn’t going down that road again. Not even for a dime piece like Dionne. He had to keep his head, had to remember that no good could ever come of them being lovers. That’s easier said than done, he thought.

Dionne stared at him, her gaze strong and intense. His hands itched to touch her, to caress every slope and curve on her delicious body. His pulse quickened, and his thoughts ran wild. What would she do if I kissed her? Would she push me away or kiss me back? Does she feel the chemistry between us, or is it a figment of my imagination?

There’s only one way to find out, whispered his inner voice.





Dear Reader,

Born into one of Italy’s wealthiest, most prominent families, Immanuel Morretti has more money than he can ever spend. But that doesn’t mean he’s lived a charmed life. He is estranged from his father, has endured a bitter scandal that damaged his reputation and business, and he caught his fiancée in bed with another man—his younger brother. Love is the last thing on Immanuel’s mind when he relocates from Venice to Atlanta, so imagine his surprise when he meets Dionne Fontaine and falls hard and fast for her.

Too bad she’s off-limits.

On the outside looking in, Dionne seems to have it all, but she has fears and insecurities just like the rest of us. Unlucky in love, with two failed marriages, she’s given up all hope of ever meeting her soul mate and living happily ever after.

Enter Immanuel Morretti.

The security specialist is more than just a handsome face and chiseled physique. He’s the total package, a hero with a heart of gold, and everything about him excites her. Dionne and Immanuel are a match made in heaven. After a romantic weekend in The Emerald City filled with passionate kisses, shared confidences and delicious lovemaking, they decide to take a chance on love—and each other.

Hearing from readers is the highlight of my day, so keep the emails, reviews and messages coming! I appreciate each and every one of you, and I’m humbled by your support. Happy reading.

All the best in life and love,

Pamela Yaye







Chapter 1

“Surely you can’t be that dumb.” Dionne Fontaine heard the scathing retort leave her mouth and wished she could cram the words back down her throat. Not because she felt guilty for losing her temper, but because the novice life coach with the Dolly Parton–like cleavage had burst into tears.

Her vice president and friend, Sharleen Nichols, glared at her as if she were the problem, and Dionne wondered if she’d been too harsh. Considering all of the facts, Dionne determined her next move. Sharleen and Annabelle Clark had arrived at her office ten minutes earlier, during her morning meditation time, and although she’d been annoyed by the interruption, Dionne had given them her undivided attention. She was the CEO of Pathways Center, the head woman in charge, and she prided herself on being accessible to her employees. Even starstruck life coaches who put themselves in compromising situations with male clients.

“Annabelle did nothing wrong,” Sharleen insisted, her tone matter-of-fact. “It’s not her fault Ryder Knoxx propositioned her during their free consultation yesterday. She shouldn’t be blamed for his poor judgment.”

Feeling contrite, Dionne spoke in a sympathetic tone. “Entertainers are notorious womanizers with no conscience. Since it’s obvious Mr. Knoxx has a crush on you, I’ll assign you to another client and pass the aging rock star on to a more seasoned life coach.”

Panic flickered across her face. “No. Don’t. I like him, and we have a lot in common.”
