When the survival of her family is at stake, Kate Ripley will do what needs to be done to save her young siblings and alcoholic mother, even playing the role of secretary and mistress to the handsome yet cynical billionaire known as Clayton Reid. Unfortunately, the way Kate stumbles upon her unique and high paying opportunity means the dashing yet arrogant billionaire believes her to be a prostitute. A reasonable assumption since she was hired as an escort initially. After a rocky start pierced with many moments of pure attraction, their lust is satisfied but quickly starts to grow into something more. Clarissa Cartharn writes a beautiful and poignant retelling of Cinderella in Red Collar. Kate struggles with her job, with what she is resorted to doing for survival, but at the same time she feels drawn to and inflamed by Clayton.

Six days. That is all it should have been between Kate and Clayton. Six days playing a young couple madly in love for his family. But it could never be because she is a feisty woman who doesn’t bend to his whims and he’s a handsome billionaire who makes her lose her mind with one touch. Clarissa Cartharn put a truly fantastic spin on Red Collar, simply dropping the reader into the tumultuous relationships in Kate’s life. The way she paints Clayton as both arrogant and kind takes the reader on a journey to discover who Clayton Reid really is and if that man is good enough for kind and caring, if a tad bit cynical, Kate Ripley. Between the burgeoning love they both try to fight and the steamy erotic scenes, Red Collar will have you wishing for your very own Prince Kinda-Charming.
