A green-haired woman struts into the room, singing the words to an extremely vulgar hip hop song. She’s clad in a faded black skirt suit and heels and there are holes in her bottom lip and ears. She flops into the empty chair.
Camille: Miss Yen told me you wanted to see me. (she crosses her arms in front of her body) Whatever I did, I can explain—
Cynthia Sax: (raises her palms) There’s nothing to explain. You didn’t do anything wrong.
Camille: (mumbles) That you know about.
Cynthia Sax: (grins) This is a get-to-know-you interview.
Camille: You don’t want to get to know me. (she waves her hands at Cynthia) You’re clearly a corporate clone. I’m a rebel child. Why would you be interested in me?
Cynthia Sax: Nathan Lawford, the company’s CFO, is corporate and he seems to be interested in you.
Camille: Yes, he does. (a smile curls her lips) I’m one or two encounters away from breaking the Iceman. He’s trying to resist me but he’ll cave. I already see the cracks in his frigid demeanor. He’ll touch me before the week ends.
Cynthia Sax: Is that all you want—for him to touch you?
Camille: (rolls her eyes) Look at me. I’m a candidate for freak of the week and he’s chilly perfection, that hot body of his all bundled up in his black suits. Nothing else but wild, passionate sex is happening between us. (a glimmer of regret crosses her face) And I’m fine with that.
Cynthia Sax: You’re not fine with that. Your friends Anna and Kat have fallen in love.
Camille: They’re normal. That’s what normal people do. I’m not normal. I break rules. I push people. I don’t fit in anywhere. No one falls in love with a woman like that.
Cynthia Sax: Mr. Lawford isn’t no one.
Camille: Nate is a game for me. That’s all. (jumps to her feet) Are we done here? I have an executive’s schedule to verify.
Cynthia Sax: Mr. Lawford gave you access to his schedule?
Camille: (laughs as she struts away) If he gave me access, it wouldn’t be as much fun.
Nathan Lawford, Blaine Technologies' chief financial officer, is known as the Iceman. He conducts his personal and business affairs without emotion, never allowing himself to become involved with anyone. When Nate sees something or someone he wants, he negotiates, paying a simple, set monetary price.
Now he wants Camille, the company's green-haired intern.
Camille Joplin Trent never expected to be paid to pleasure the man of her dreams. She can't quite figure out why this is a bad thing. Nate is intelligent, handsome, sophisticated—everything she's ever wanted in a lover and never thought she could have. Their contract is for a month, thirty lust-filled days of making every sexual fantasy they've ever had come true. At the end of this month, the rules state that their relationship will end.
Of course, Camille has never been good at following rules.
