Kenji Yamada had never seen anything so magnificent as Catherine Swanson’s thighs. He sat beside her in the back of his Rolls Royce Seraph with the twelve-cylinder motor at idle and the CD player whispering Sinatra love songs.

Her scent filled his nostrils with a heavy-sweet floral fragrance that included a hint of musk. A black linen sheath dress with a high collar left her shoulders bare, the flawless perfection of her skin like emperor’s silk.
