I’m the Mayor of London.
I’ve come to New York purely on business. The usual boring meetings with other politicians.
I don’t expect my time here to be exciting in the slightest.
But who’s that woman I met this morning? No, girl. That would be a more accurate term for her.
She’s only twenty-one years old. A college student. Someone who shouldn’t get mixed up with a guy like me.
But I can’t get her out of my mind. Every single time I close my eyes, I see her face.
How can someone I just met do this to me? That’s the kind of stuff that happens in movies. Not real life.
I know this will be a dangerous risk for me, but I can’t help it. I want her. I need her.
And whatever it may do to my career, I won’t stop until I have her.

Nicole had no idea what I was planning.
It was a large elevator, so thankfully we weren’t too hemmed in by my bodyguards being there with us. Still, I didn’t want her to think they were going to be with us the whole time.
“Don’t worry,” I said, looking straight ahead at the door to the elevator. “These guys aren’t going to be so close all night.” Nicole didn’t say anything. It was almost as if I could feel her shyness. “You know back home in England, these things are called lifts. Not elevators.”
“I know,” is all she managed to produce.
I wasn’t too worried about her. I knew her true self would show up once she saw the spectacle I had prepared. Meeting a celebrity can be overwhelming for most people. But she would get over it very soon.
Just a few more moments.
The elevator came to a stop. The door slid open. Nicole stepped out… and froze a moment a later.
I chuckled and joined her side. We were in a corridor that led towards a green door. Not what my dinner guest was expecting at all.
“I wasn’t lying about taking you to the roof,” I told her. “I’ve got a surprise for you. Come on. Follow me.” I didn’t turn my head to see if she was indeed following me. I had no doubt that she would. Her curiosity was piqued. This night was already proving to be more than she expected, and she was intrigued about what was coming next.
Trust me when I say that I knew she wouldn’t be disappointed.
Usually, that area would be completely off-limits for anyone who isn’t an employee. But being a famous politician has plenty of perks. A little convincing was all the manager of the hotel needed. He didn’t want to do or say anything that would upset the mayor of London. People in his position are told not to say no to men like me.
That’s why the normally locked green door was now open. I escorted Nicole through and stood to the side so she could take it all in.
The world famous skyline of New York City was shining in every direction she turned. It was a dazzling sight. Hell, even I had to fight the urge to look around in wonder.
“Have you lived in New York your whole life?” I asked Nicole.
“Yes,” she said in a voice that I could barely hear. Her chest was rising and falling. Her heart was clearly thundering in her chest at what was in front of her.
“Well, I bet in all that time you’ve never seen the city like this.” A slight wind was coming in from the east. It caused strands of Nicole’s hair to dance a little. Suddenly, I lost focus of the view and zeroed in on the girl. I didn’t even care where I was. The rooftop of a hotel, or a back alley in a bad neighborhood. My thoughts were entirely devoted to Nicole. I was taking in her features with something akin to hunger.
I shouldn’t have been feeling that way. My type was sophisticated, graceful women. Women close to my age. Not someone like Nicole. She was too young. Too inexperienced. Too much of a novice when it comes to the ins and outs of life.
But I couldn’t help it. It was as if she had claimed my soul. Like I never wanted to be with another woman ever again. So much emotional attachment to her so soon. I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t even know how such a thing was possible.
I’m a guy who likes to cut right to the chase, so here we go: I’m a male author of Romance/Erotica novels that are told entirely from the POV of the male protagonist. If you enjoy happy endings and steamy tales about people falling in love quickly, my stories are for you.
