Trapped with a billionaire in his mysterious mansion... Can she beat him at his own game?
Lily Frazer would do anything to save the Frazer Center for the Arts—even take on the infamous billionaire Calder Cunningham. When Lily breaks onto the Cunningham estate, she only wants to find and reason with Calder. (All right, all right, she wants to punch him in the face, too, but that's Plan B.) As it turns out, the arrogant billionaire is willing to give her the money he promised, but there's a catch: she must win it from him.
And the games he has in mind aren't exactly... innocent.
Lily isn't about to give up the money without a fight (or let some haughty bastard seduce her), but she quickly discovers that there might be more to the brooding Calder than she initially perceived. As their games of cat and mouse become increasingly sexual in nature, she suddenly finds herself confused by her own emotions. Can she deny her attraction long enough to win the money she needs?

A contemporary, steamy take on Beauty and the Beast, His Wicked Games is a tale of devilish deeds, wild passions, and wicked romance.

His Wicked Games fits into the steamy contemporary romance genre and is a fun, light and interesting read.
After Calder Cunningham cuts his financial contribution to the Frazer Center for the Arts, Lily Frazer is determined to find out why and make him change his mind. She’ll do whatever she needs to do and that includes breaking into Calder’s mansion so she can talk to him.   
Lily is our main character. She’s very determined and it’s obvious she loves her father and their center enough to do whatever it takes to save it. She loves art, is smart and sure of herself. She might just find herself way over herself with Calder.
Calder is the main male character. Lily thinks he’s arrogant, too sure of himself and just another rich playboy. Of course she also thinks he’s quite handsome and sexy. There’s more to him than what meets the eye, though. He´s actually very intelligent and charming and is dealing with more than Lily initially thinks.   
There’s some clear attraction between Lily and Calder and even though Lily is determined to not get involved she’s not quite able to resist him and his games. There’s good chemistry and some fun and steamy scenes between them.
Plotwise, the story revolves around Lily’s attempts to save the art’s center and the lengths she would go to convince Calder to invest on it.
Calder is hiding some secrets that can put any relationship between them – professional or not – at risk. Add in Lily’s controlling ex-boyfriend and these two have some real problems.
All in all, His Wicked Games is a fun, light and fast read. The story is interesting and well-written and the chemistry between the characters was able to keep me very entertained.
The book ends in a good place but I still want to read the next one in the series and find out what will happen to the characters.
If you like a good contemporary romance with a few steamy scenes, you should give this book a try. It’s a fun read!
