Ice Queen meets her match in this lesbian romance
A ruthless executive. A destitute woman. Both on the way up.
Selina Hale is on her way to the top. She’s been working towards a boardroom position on the thirteenth floor for her entire career. And no one is going to get in her way. Not her clueless boss, her soon to be ex-wife, and most certainly not the homeless person who has moved into the car park at work.
Kate Morgan fell through the cracks in a broken support system and found herself destitute. Determined and strong-willed, she’s not about to accept help from a mean business woman who can’t even remember the names of her own nephews.
As their lives continue to intertwine, they have no choice but to work together and follow each other on their journey up.
Jonathan Addington leaned back in his chair. His fingers were interlaced behind his head, and a slimy grin slithered across his young features. Selina wondered how he ever managed to do business with anyone with an expression and attitude like that. He probably thought he was charming, roguish. In truth, his unpleasantness was too strong to be covered by a half-hearted grin.
“So, you see what I’m saying?”
He’d said a lot since he entered Selina’s office ten minutes ago. Most of it was focused on the end-of-year figures and the predicted turnover for the coming period. Namely, the fact that profits were down.
Of course, he’d started by mentioning how Selina’s hard work over the years had saved the company from bankruptcy, but that was only a pathetic attempt to butter her up before diving into a conversation about how revenues continued to drop.
“You’re saying,” Selina said, leaning into her high back chair and pinning him with a look, “that you want further cuts.”
“Exactly.” Jonathan sat forward. He brought his hand up and made a scissor action with his fingers. “Chop, chop. I thought you might have some ideas?”
It took every single piece of willpower that Selina possessed to not roll her eyes at him. She placed her hands on her desk and gently rolled her chair back. She stood up and walked over to the large office window, which, on the twelfth floor, overlooked the gloomy car park and railway line.
Not the office on the thirteenth floor that overlooked the award-winning park, the one she had been coveting for nearly thirty years.
