Billionaire Connor Steele had it all, his only problem, his always loving and supportive family wanting him to slow down and live alittle. To appease them, he agreed to hire an executive assistant, someone he was prepared to be a completely overbearing jerk to. From the moment he laid his eyes on her he wanted to posess her but it was when she fell off her chair and laid sprawled out at his feet that she began consuming his every thought.
They ignored their attraction to eachother until one night, after a disasterous first date for Tessa, they finally gave in. Connor knew he wanted forever with her but Tessa knew the secrets of her past will only destroy them. Prepared to give up on her happiness Tessa sets out to catch an embezzler whose cheating Connor out of millions before disappearing but not before forces from her past remerges revealing secrets she tried burying and threatens not only her life but that of Connor and his family.
With the many challenges they face, can their love survive or will one person who craves the life Connor wants to give to Tessa destroy everyone and everything they love.......
