Excerpt from The Billionaire and His Boss by Patricia Kay
Six weeks later...
Alex looked around his new apartment with satisfaction. This place, with its nondescript decor and discount-house furniture, was a far cry from his pad in the city, but he didn't mind. He didn't need fancy digs. Never had. The only reason he lived where and how he did was because it was expected of him in his position as the director of the Harrison Hunt Foundation.
Thinking about the foundation, he frowned. He'd put out every fire, assigned as many tasks as he could to others and taken care of everything else he could think of before telling his staff he was taking an extended leave of absence. And he knew his assistant, Martha Oliver, affectionately called Marti by all who knew her well, could be trusted to handle ninety-nine percent of anything else that might come up.
But it was that other one percent that worried Alex. Still, he was only a ninety-minute drive from downtown Seattle, and in an emergency, Marti could reach him on his cell and know he'd come as soon as possible. In fact, she'd been texting him religiously, keeping him up to date on everything. Alex made a mental note to give her a hefty bonus when this situation was finally resolved and he was back to work. Which, he hoped, would be soon.
He knew there was no reason to worry. Things would be fine while he was gone. He reminded himself that all he had to do was quickly find a suitable woman to marry, and he might not have to be away from the foundation for long at all.
Alex was not arrogant or vain. But he wasn't unaware of his appeal. All his life he'd been told he was good-looking and wherever he went women made eye contact and flirted. So if he found someone who interested him and that he felt his father and his Aunt Cornelia would approve of, he suspected all he'd have to do was go through the motions women expected from a suitor.
After he and his brothers had decided to go along with Harry's edict, Alex had given considerable thought to his strategy in the campaign to find the kind of wife he wanted. What he'd decided was he would never be able to do so while continuing to work at the foundation. He needed to go somewhere he wasn't known and he needed to be working at an ordinary job with ordinary people.
