His Wicked Games by Ember Casey
Synopsis: Trapped with a billionaire in his mysterious mansion… Can she beat him at his own game?
Lily Frazer would do anything to save the Frazer Center for the Arts–even take on the infamous billionaire Calder Cunningham. When Lily breaks onto the Cunningham estate, she only wants to find and reason with Calder. (All right, all right, she wants to punch him in the face, too, but that’s Plan B.) As it turns out, the arrogant billionaire is willing to give her the money he promised, but there’s a catch: she must win it from him.
And the games he has in mind aren’t exactly… innocent.
Lily isn’t about to give up the money without a fight (or let some haughty bastard seduce her), but she quickly discovers that there might be more to the brooding Calder than she initially perceived. As their games of cat and mouse become increasingly sexual in nature, she suddenly finds herself confused by her own emotions. Can she deny her attraction long enough to win the money she needs?
A contemporary, steamy take on Beauty and the Beast, His Wicked Games is a tale of devilish deeds, wild passions, and wicked romance.

Review by Jennifer: This book was amazing! Yet another great book that I stayed up entirely too late trying to get as far as I could through it.
Lily has a problem. Her father runs this Art Center and without donations from generous people, it wouldn’t be able to stay open. Her problem is one Mr. Calder Cunningham. He has withdraw his support even though his late father signed a contract promising so many years of a donation. She won’t take no for an answer and against her father’s wishes she heads out to the mysterious house that Calder lives in.
Upon arriving it seems no one will answer her so she sneaks over the gate in the pouring rain, only to be tackled by a rather large man. Said man turns out to be Mr. Cunningham himself. He’s none too happy either.
And thus starts his wicked games. Lily catches his eye. She’s feisty and very spirited. He likes that, but Lily refuses to admit she’s attracted to him. So he sets out to make her realize her own attraction to him.
And can I just say WOW! This book yanked me into it’s depths and made me hold my breathe, intrigued by the possibilities awaiting Lily. I definitely will be reading every book in this series!
