Lift Me Higher

High-profile entertainment attorney Monte Lewis is one of New York's most dynamic movers and shakers. Torie Turner--model turned actress and his firm's newest client--could complete the picture. But Torie's a lot more than arm candy. She's sexy, passionate...and on the brink of stardom.

Torie can think of worse things than being trapped in an elevator with six feet plus of raw, unleashed masculinity. But there's more to single father Monte Lewis than his charm and magnetic looks. With their explosive affair thrusting them into the limelight, Torie has to decide what she really wants: her lifelong dream of being a star or a passion-filled future with this special man who's taking her higher than she's ever been taken before....

Excerpts-
  • From the book



    Monte scanned the day's calendar on his PDA as he moved toward the elevator bank for floors twenty through thirty-one of midtown Manhattan's Time Warner building. He adjusted his red tie and smoothed the lapels of his midnight-blue Brooks Brothers suit absently, thinking about all he had to do in the day ahead of him. The lobby area was just beginning to buzz with activity at seven forty-five on a Tuesday morning. Monte had an eight-thirty meeting and a string of conference calls to follow. It would be a busy day as usual, through which he would plow tirelessly, making deals come together seamlessly. No matter, he thought, because by five o'clock Monte would call it quits for the day. His boys had a Little League game that evening and, with him being their coach as well, it definitely wouldn't do for him to be late.

    Monte opened the Daily News paper he'd tucked beneath his arm, turning to the sports section. The ding of the elevator as it landed on the lobby floor and its doors opening drew Monte's attention. He stepped into the elevator, pressed the button marked twenty-seven and became engrossed in the paper again. Absorbed in the highlights of the Nets' latest Cinderella victory, Monte didn't look up as another passenger entered the elevator just before the doors closed. The car began its smooth ascent and Monte's senses were suddenly assailed by the faint yet sweet scent of lilies. His eyes followed his nose and they led him to slender feet clad in six-inch stilettos, up stockingless, shapely brown calves to a stunning black skirt that stopped midthigh and hugged sinfully curvaceous hips.

    Monte swallowed as his eyes continued their journey, taking their sweet time. The torso of this magnificent vision was held securely by a black suit jacket and its top button stopped at a bustline that begged for attention. Above a pearl-necklace-adorned graceful neck was the face of an angel. Hazel eyes met Monte's, and he was at once embarrassed at his voyeurism and enthralled by her beauty.

    Monte opened his mouth to speak, but before he could command control over his vocabulary, the elevator came to a halt and, with a chime, the doors opened. The alluring woman exited, without as much as another glance at Monte, who remained dumbfounded and immobile.

    Monte had always prided himself on being a man who was not easily moved by a pretty face and, had she been just that, Monte probably would not have given her more than an appreciative nod. Yet, there was more to the woman than just physical beauty. There was an ethereal essence that seeped from the inside out, and a presence that had captivated him. He could only liken the experience to being caught in a spider's web, hopelessly entangled in the strong fiber. It was not until the doors closed again and the elevator continued its ascent that he came to his senses and realized that the floor the woman had exited on was also his floor, the twenty-seventh. He quickly depressed a button for one of the higher floors, exited and caught another car headed down.

    "Who was that woman who just got off of the elevator?" Monte asked the receptionist when he'd landed at the office space of Cooper & Beardsley. The entertainment-law firm had been home to Monte for the past six years and he'd been a senior associate for the past two.

    Monte's immediate investigation uncovered that the beautiful woman he'd been ogling in the elevator was one of his firm's newest clients, Torie Turner, a model turned actress whose career was, by all accounts, poised to take off. After spending years as a print model, she'd decided to take her career to the next level, building an impressive...
