Business or Pleasure by Michael Cross and Emma Michaels

 

After a night locked up with his boss, Ian realizes his resentment toward Alex might be something very different.

When American Ian lands a secretarial job in the United Kingdom, he thinks he’s set for life.

When Alistair Security is robbed during the Christmas Fundraiser, the last thing Ian expects is to end up locked in with his boss, Alex Alistair, and to realize he might have mistaken his resentment for something else. The two men find common ground throughout the night, but when morning comes and the news hits the headlines, their connection will be tested. Ian might find himself at the start of a hot office romance—or he’ll spend the holidays browsing the classifieds.
