Within his power
Lily works as personal assistant to the big wig of the most prestigious law firm in the country, Mr. Renard Hale, so far her life has been perfect except for the fact that she hasn't yet found Mr. Right to complete the dream. The handsome spoiled son of her boss has pursued her relentlessly, but arrogant and self centered has never been her style...
What she did not know was that her boss's son's success in his father's firm is all thanks to black sorcery and he's sick and tired of being rejected, he's given her plenty of chances to be his willingly and his patience has run out, he is ready to have what belongs to him.
Which leads to Lily finding herself the victim of a curse that leads her life force trickling away little by by little, leaving her weak and feeble in three day period and after a week... dead.
He comes to her after three days and tells her what he's done and... how to stay alive... the only way for her to maintain strength and stay alive, she must share his bed at least once every day, allowing him to replenish her life energy by sharing the vast excess of his own.
Over time, when she comes to accept his permanent role in her life, he will reverse the curse... Can Lily bring herself to share his bed to save her own life? Even she is not sure.
We'd start like mere hours before the curse is cast, perhaps Lily rejects him again and he decides then that enough is enough. The Job the male lead's father owns and Lily serves as an assistant for is negotiable, I was just looking for something that would place our male lead on a very high pedestal, making him very arrogant and feel highly entitled to whatever it is he wants... regardless of the means he has to use in order to get it. .
