Detained by Ainslie Paton
Will Parker isn’t your typical billionaire businessman.
He’s a small town boy. So small it’s barely on any map. He has a broken nose, a much scarred body, an enormous picture tattoo on his back. He did badly in school. He didn’t learn to read until he was a teenager, but he speaks the local Shanghai dialect like a backstreet
He prefers the shadows, eschews the limelight, specialises in exerting the kind of control you don’t see coming. He’s a gambler, focused, determined, ruthless. He avoids relationships but had a devoted mistress.
He’s not all hard edges. He can be charming, funny, urbane. He likes the world’s most
expensive Scotch Whiskey and he wears a tux like a second skin. He’s comfortable with the wealth he’s made and generous with it. But he’s equally happy in old jeans, a battered hat and worn boots.
He’s a phantom, an enigma and a temptation and under it all a fighter.

A romance about manipulation, truth and facing the past.
Truth can make you and break you. But can it glue you back together again?
Detained in a cold, dull room in the depths of Shanghai airport, a journalist chasing a career break and a businessman with a shadowy past, play a game of truth or dare—deliberately not exchanging names.
They tell each other painful secrets and hot desires. One dare leads to a kiss and a wild weekend of illicit passion, setting off a dangerous sequence of events and bringing exposure, and disgrace.
Only the brutal truth can save them. But it will also rip them apart. And it will take more than daring before they have a chance to build a new truth together.
But wait there's more:
