Strong female and alpha male battle for a company in the heat of the south. Can a professional woman fall in love with the alpha male she’s devouring? Intrigue, innuendo, secrets, danger, and the past, devour hero and heroine as they discover things aren't quite as they appear.

Amanda Lassiter, divorced and now married to her job, needs her first solo endeavor at managing an acquisition to go smoothly. With a promotion dangling, she heads to North Carolina where she is faced with the choice of doing the right thing or following her boss' orders. Will the conflict spiral her downward into her previously defeated eating disorder?

The economy, among other issues, has forced Reece Jordan to accept the take-over of his company. For the benefit of his employees, he’s prepared to go toe-to-toe with the mogul behind the acquisition, but not with the beautiful, multi-layered woman sent in his place.

Temptations mount, secrets are revealed, and nothing turns out the way it was planned.

Renee Canter Johnson is the author of Acquisition (The Wild Rose Press, 2014) and The Haunting of William Gray, expected to be released in 2015, also published by The Wild Rose Press.

She authors two blogs: focuses on her journey as a writer and for travel, photography, and random observations on life. Her travel articles, essays, and short stories have appeared on sites including Bonjour Paris, Storyhouse, and Study Abroad.

Renee lives on a mountain in North Carolina with her husband, Tony, and one very spoiled German shepherd named Gretel. In addition to NC Writers' Network, she is a member of Romance Writers of America and She Writes. You can follow her on Twitter at @writingfeemail and on Facebook at
