He pronounced her name like a lover’s caress, smooth and silky. She heard a hint of an English accent. An accent she thought would be thick on his tongue because of his title.

“Does everything have to have an angle?”
“In business, yes.” In her world anyway.
“What about in your personal life?” He sat forward, his jacket opened as he did and she noticed for the first time that he wasn’t wearing a tie. His dress shirt’s first two buttons were undone and his bronze skin underneath caught her eye.
“We aren’t here to discuss my personal life.”
“I wouldn’t be too sure about that."
