Captured by a Stubborn CEO is a modern city as the background of romance novel,the protagonists are Skylar Jones and Tobias Ford.
Blurb : She was a wealthy daughter who was abandoned by the rich. Her father treated her as a stranger, and her mother went to jail. In order to save his boyfriend's life, in desperation, she made a deal with him, but was spoiled by the gold master...
“Sir, I only need three hundred thousand. Please...”
Skylar Jones trembled on her feet in front of the man, with her head hung low.
Apart from the dim lighting, she was shrouded in darkness.
Right then, a tall and broad-shouldered figure approached her step by step.
The man grasped her chin, and panic rose in her when she was met with his icy and intimidating gaze.
With her heart in her throat, Skylar swallowed thickly before continuing, “I know three hundred thousand isn’t a small amount, b-but I really need this money.”
When the man heard her say that three hundred thousand wasn’t a small amount, the corners of his lips arched into a cold-blooded smile.
Suddenly, Skylar was pulled into his arms, completely caught off guard.
And in just mere seconds, the pleasant scent of white sandalwood invaded her senses, almost drowning her.
Immediately afterward, his cold voice sounded above her head and brought her back to the harsh reality. “How do you expect me to believe you? Well, you know what they say - talk is cheap...”
Though scared out of her wits, Skylar suppressed the fear gripping her heart and replied, “Give it a try. If you find that I’m lying, I’ll return all the money to you.”
As soon as she said that, a palm, cold as the grave, clasped the back of her neck, chilling her to the bones. She instinctively thrashed against him, trying to escape, but the man only tightened his other hand around her waist even more.
Hence, she stopped struggling, not daring to move a muscle.
This was the only way to get the money for her boyfriend, Jeremy’s medical expenses.
The moment she remained still, the man cupped Skylar’s face with his palm as he remarked in a low and hoarse voice, “I’m not interested in getting my hands dirty by personally verifying it!”
