Tristan Trillo has one steadfast rule--thou shalt not fish in the company pond. That puts his executive assistant Shannon Weiss firmly out of reach. He tells himself the secret steamy computer simulations he creates--ones featuring a seductress with more than a passing resemblance to Shannon--are enough. But watching the virtual Shannon get spanked or tied up, taken from behind or while down on her knees, just makes him want the real Shannon more. When Shannon discovers the depth of Tristan's desire, she vows to seduce him in real life, his rule be damned. After a blazing, illicit tryst in Tristan's office, he insists they can never do it again. So Shannon, ever the obedient assistant, makes certain the next time she seduces him, they do something completely different. Poor Tristan is a man trapped between his steadfast rule and a burning passion. A rock, if you will, and a very hard place.
