THIS WOMAN, the highly anticipated hero’s point-of-view of the iconic This Man series from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Jodi Ellen Malpas, is available now!

Scroll down for an exclusive excerpt!



Women never reject Jesse Ward. They fall at his feet.

Except the one woman who unwittingly becomes his obsession…



Jesse Ward has stumbled through life drinking and indulging himself within the rooms of his high-class sex club, The Manor, numbing himself to the pain, grief, and guilt of his wrongs. Pleasure and alcohol are his medicine. Hedonism is all he knows.

It’s how he copes.

How he survives.

Until Ava O’Shea strolls into his office and knocks him back with her breathtaking beauty, ambition, and drive. It only takes one look into her eyes, one touch of her skin, and one word murmured, before his heart is kick-started, offering him something he never thought possible. A distraction from his daily torment. A semblance of peace.

Women never reject Jesse Ward. They fall at his feet, melt from his charismatic, devious smile, and obey his every salacious command. All except the one woman who unwittingly becomes his obsession and the only thing that can keep him from the brink of self-destruction.

He needs Ava and will do anything to have her.

Even hide every last skeleton in his large closet.

Because the truth could destroy them both.

She’s still, peaceful. I’m peaceful with her. Bliss. But then I feel her shift, and my arms lock down of their own volition. “Don’t even think about it, lady,” I mumble. I’m not moving, not for a long while, and neither is she.

“I need to use the bathroom.”

“Tough,” I grunt, probably unreasonably. But this is so nice. “Hold on to it. I’m comfy.”

“I can’t,” she says, somewhere between laughter and exasperation, trying to pry my arms from around her. I shrug her hands away with ease. I’ll always win. She needs to get used to that. Especially when she is the prize.

“I’m not letting go of you.” Not ever.

Sensibly, she relents, and I smile on the inside, placing a kiss on her cheek before relaxing back again, my eyes closing. I could stay here all day—this is unbelievably good—just . . . being, but I feel her body solidify. She’s going to try and escape me again? When will this woman learn? I move fast, spinning her onto her back, kneeing her thighs apart, and nailing her wrists to the bed.




I push my groin into her, feeling the corners of my lips twitching. She’s breathless. Staring up at me in wonder. One touch, and she’s mine. I mentally file that knowledge away and get down to the business of maintaining our bliss, as well as keeping Ava in her blindsided frame of mind.

I’m lacking many things as a man—we won’t go into details—but one thing I have on my side is my talent in bed, and I will wield that power to my advantage when I need to, no apologies. Like now when she needs to pee. She’ll soon forget that.
