All he did was apply for a job and then his world was turned upside down.
Thrust into the world he had no idea about, Jordan Sutton’s only goal was to get a job working for Duncan Pryde of Pryde Industries. He thought werewolves, vampires, and Fey’s belonged in fairy tales, not in the real world. What will he do when he finds out that there’s more than meets the eye to his boss and his family?
Duncan Pryde had too much going on in his life. He became the sole guardian of his twin niece and nephew along with the addition of his pack and company.

Jordan pulled up to the address he was directed to by his GPS. His mouth fell open in complete shock at the mansion looking back at him. He was applying for a position to work for the CEO of Pryde Industries. The handsome and draws dropping Duncan Pryde. The position was as his personal assistant. Unless people had been living under a rock, everyone knew exactly who Duncan Pryde was. A self- made billionaire who had his fingers in everything from computer software to fashion design. The man was intelligent, wealthy, and drop dead gorgeous. Simply put, everything Jordan could want in a man with one snag—the man was completely straight. According to all the magazines, he’d read. When he heard that there was a position opening up at Pryde Industries and it would be working for the CEO, Jordan researched everything he could about Duncan Pryde. One thing was evident, Pryde was never without some slim, beautiful female model hanging off his arm. Other than that, Jordan admired Duncan Pryde from afar, tracking his success.
It was only by chance Jordan found out about the job opening and jumped at the opportunity. He admitted to himself that he had a selfish reason for wanting to work for Pryde Industries. It was the opening Jordan needed to get his foot in the door in the business world. Even if he was starting out as a personal assistant. Jordan would be foolish to pass up the chance. Being rich was not his primary goal, success and recognition for what he could do were what he was after. Call him ambitious, but Jordan learned a long time ago that success didn’t come easily. You have to step over a few people to get where you want to in life. He practically bit his nails down to the knuckle the day he sent off his résumé. It was not a job at the corner store, but working for a CEO with a major Fortune 500 company.
The minute Jordan got the call for the interview, he did a more in-depth research on Duncan Pryde that was available on the net and his businesses. There was not a lot. He could find little on Duncan’s personal life, but there was more than enough information on Pryde Industries. It frustrated Jordan, to the point of obsession that he could not learn more about the man he wanted to work for. The only personal information he could find was that a tragedy had occurred in his life six months earlier. He had turned the running of the business over to the hands of his Vice President until he was able to return. No matter how much he searched, Jordan was not able to find out what had happened. Duncan Pryde had also withdrawn from public life. No one seemed to know what happened. Wild speculations swirled around that he had been severely injured in a car accident and his company was covering it up. Some reported that he was bound to a wheelchair and would never walk again.
Taking a deep breath, Jordan looked at the file sitting in the passenger seat next to him. It was his résumé and work experience. There wasn’t a lot to go on, but Jordan had glowing letters of recommendations from previous employers along with those of volunteering administrators. He was ready, and he was pretty confident that the job belonged to him and no one else. No need to keep sitting here the job’s not going to come to me this way. Jordan nervously got out of the car closing the door. Checking his suit to make sure that his suit was pristine, he smoothed out invisible wrinkles and lint while praying to the gods that he wouldn’t come off as an idiot in his interview. He wanted to make a good impression the first time meeting Mr. Pryde, who was conducting the interview himself.
Jordan squared his shoulders, and looked at the large white painted mansion with black window trim in front of him. The lawn was well manicured with shrubbery and trees on both sides of the walkway leading up to the door. What he could not understand was why the interview was at a mansion and not at the head office located downtown. Jordan shrugged his shoulders, as long as Jordan got the job he did not care where the interview was held. Wealthy and influential people had their quirks, it wasn’t for him to judge. Determined that he was ready to meet the man he was hoping to work for, Jordan walked to the red painted front door and cleared his throat, he raised his hand, ready to knock on the door when it was flung open for him. A ragged-looking woman burst through the door.
“I don’t care how much you pay me; I will not take care of those hellions!” She yelled, walking or rather running down the driveway and got in the car parked next to his, speeding off like a bat out of hell.
Well, that’s interesting.
Giovanna (Gia) Reaves is my alter ego, who is a dreamer. I spend my days and nights dreaming and thinking of the world’s I want to create with words. I started writing about three years ago, when I was introduced to the world of fan fiction. I loved the idea of creating a new world around characters that people already knew about. And ones that are original of my own making. I have written two novels and a few free stories.
I am a mother, wife and a military veteran. I enjoy trying new things such as; traveling, cooking and reading. I try to incorporate some of the things I have experienced into my books.
Currently, living in Newport RI, with my two favorite men. If I am not hidden in my cave writing, I like to read and spend time with my hubby and son. I love listening to R and B along with Neo soul when I am writing. When I’m not writing, I am trying to perfecting my baking and decorating skills or try to pick up something new. I love spending time with my husband and son playing video games and traveling.
