I have a traumatic past I don’t like to remember and though it kept knocking on my door, I built my walls and made a successful man of myself.
My present is a void, but I am a powerful steel tycoon who has it all, and that’s all they need to know.
An unpredictable snowstorm changes everything. She’s stranded in Heathrow airport and I give her a ride in my G650.
She’s all I ever wanted: a passionate, loving, beautiful woman. She gives me what I never had: love. She will be my forever.
One year ago, on my daughter’s grave, I promised I would never bend to a woman’s will again.
Since then my days are filled with billionaire banking contracts and my nights are filled with raw, kinky, hard sex. One new woman each night—sometimes two—to indulge my need for control and punishment. I forget about them as soon as they’re out of my door.
But when I meet her in a business meeting, in my f*cking bank, she confronts me, runs me over, and leaves me horny as f*ck. She’s gorgeous, sexy, and has a strong will. One I will bend.
Once upon a time, I had everything I had ever wished for: a perfect marriage, a successful career, and my precious baby daughter. Until monsters took my beloved husband away. To protect my daughter, I fled to London and hid under a false name, afraid to be discovered.
Two years have passed and now my fear has also mixed with loneliness and torment. I’m torn between the love for a dead man and my desire to move on.
So, when Ethan, in all his powerful tycoon confidence and charm, insists on a relationship, I give it a chance. But when I meet Alistair and gaze into his blazing green eyes, my world spins around.
Now, I don’t know what to do. Or whom to choose.
My desire for Sophia consumes me night and day. I know my jealousy pushed her away, but I’ll do anything get her back. Even if that means dealing with shady, underground lords.
I’m enthralled with Sophia. Now that she’s finally agreed to be in a relationship with me, I’ll start to push her boundaries, introducing her to my darker side. But I'll need to be careful, so I don’t scare her away. She’s too good to lose.
I’m excited by Alistair’s kinkiness but scared, at the same time. I wonder if I can tame him. But what if I do and he finds out about my terrible past misdeeds and then rejects me. Because, really...who wouldn’t?
I’ve hired a woman who looks like Sophia to try to fill the gaping hole she’s left in my heart. I’ve also come up with a way to stay close to her, at least professionally. And with Alistair out of the picture, she’s back in my life to some small degree.
Just when Sophia gave me something to live for again, I pushed the wrong buttons and drove her off. But I know what I have done wrong and that gives me a fighting chance. I can win her back…if only I can change.
I’m not ready for a relationship—either with Alistair, or with Ethan. I’ve got bigger problems to deal right now. I must return to Brazil to face my worst nightmare: a part I played in a deadly game of revenge… I hope I’m still redeemable.
My plan to have Sophia back in my arms has been temporarily thwarted by her marrying Alistair, but that’s not the end of things. I’m not giving up. She’s coming with me to India on a business trip…and who knows? That might be my chance to get her back.
I have a new lease on life: my daughter is finally safe with me, my marriage is thriving, and my professional life is successful. Life can’t get any better…but only if my ghosts stay buried.
Just when I thought everything with Sophia was going perfectly, I’m tied in knots again. Messages from an anonymous sender have been arriving, threatening to ruin what Sophia and I have worked so hard to achieve. As much as I wish to ignore them, I must not. Because my enemies are back…and they might hurt my one and only love.
