by Lynne Silver
Billionaire CEO and computer whiz Noah Frellish is a king among geeks. Women are attracted to his money, but he’d love to meet someone who’s actually interested in him. When he helps the sweet and sexy Michelle Kolson with a printing problem, she confuses him for a help desk technician. Noah knows he should clear up this case of mistaken identity, but would she still like him if she knew he was the boss?
Michelle thinks life in Chicago is perfect, as is the whirlwind romance with her smoking-hot coworker. When she unexpectedly finds her job on the chopping block and the man she fell headfirst into bed with running the company, will she abandon her dreams?
Noah must convince the small-town girl to stay in the big city—and that he really is the man she fell for.

Time for a last-ditch effort. If it didn’t work, she’d have to grab
a flash drive and pay to print out the document at the twenty-fourhour
printing store near her house with money she didn’t have.
She kicked the printer stand and caught it as it wobbled.
“That never works, but I appreciate the sentiment.”
She jumped and whirled around to see a young guy, looking
nerdy in an endearing way. He wore a ratty black T-shirt with the
words There’s no place like 127.0.0.1. She guessed it was a computer
joke. Despite her confusion, she took note of the way the numbers
spread across his wide chest, hinting at some interesting muscles
hiding behind the geeky demeanor. She had to lift her chin to see
“You startled me.” She placed a hand to her chest to calm
down her wildly beating heart, which jumped thanks to being
startled but also at her close proximity to a tall, handsome man.
At least, she thought he was handsome. A baseball cap pulled low
over his brow prevented her from seeing most of his face, other
than a nicely squared jawline shadowed by a hint of a dark beard.
“Do you need help?”
“That would be amazing. I have to get my weekly time sheet
and call log printed and on my boss’s desk.”
“Let me see what I can do, but for future reference, the help
desk is always on call here.”
“The IT group whose sole purpose is to assist—”
“The office Luddites.”
He grinned. “You said it, not me.” He bent over the printer.
“I didn’t even know such a thing existed. It’s my first week
here. My first week anywhere.” She blushed and tried to stop
He started to say something, then stopped and walked back to
her desk to fiddle with her mouse. He spent a few minutes hitting
buttons until he looked up and grinned. “I found the problem.
Come with me.”
She followed him around a row of desks to another printer
stand that was spitting out a sheaf of papers. She snatched at
the pile to see that her document was there in triplicate. Her
hand brushed his wrist as she reached for the paper, and then
understanding of her silly mistake dawned. She flushed and
wanted to hide. “I was sending to the wrong printer bank. I must
not have heard it, since I was on the phone.”
He grinned. “Yeah. Easy mistake to make. I would’ve assumed
the closest printer too, but now you know.”
“Thank you.” She stuck her hand out. “I’m Michelle.” She
felt a bit foolish shaking hands as if they were being formally
introduced, but she wanted an excuse to touch him, to feel his
strong and capable-looking hand in hers.
