DARK RULER (The Bennett Duet #1) by Xavier Neal
Release Date: October 15th
Add to Goodreads:
I was raised to be a ruler of two worlds.
One with a pen.
One with a knife.
Be the king of the concrete jungle at all costs.
I should’ve simply taken a queen, not courted one.
I should’ve forced her submission, not earned it.
I should’ve let respect be enough, not fall in love.
Someone has made a grave mistake in coming for my company.
For my throne.
For my Mia Bella.
And for that, they will not only meet the man I was raised to become but the one I am now, for the only woman I will ever bow to.

Benicio is a powerful man who has been groomed to know what his responsibilities are when it comes to his family. Not that he has assumed control he know that he needs to not only marry but produce heirs however the only problem with that is that the one woman he wants for the position is also the one people will deem to most unsuitable.
Chantal is confident when it comes to her skills with numbers so when she brings an inconsistency to the forefront her feisty personality catches the attention of her boss Benicio. She infuriates and challenges him a way that no other woman has before which only makes the chemistry between them burn that much stronger.
Intrigue, heat and amusing interplay as Benicio and Chantal not only try to maneuver the relationship they are building but all the obstacles that life keeps throwing at them as we lead up to a cliffhanger that leaves you wanting more of this couple.
