When Antonio Forte met Lauren Bradley, he never expected that making the choice between a possible relationship with her or destroying her company in a hostile takeover would be a hard one. Antonio has always put business before pleasure, but for the first time, he wants both. After proposing a merger of their two companies, Antonio is hoping Lauren accepts his offer so he can show her the world and together they can have it all. In a world dominated by men, Lauren's leery of anyone willing to show mercy—especially the very handsome, smooth-talking Antonio. Lauren doesn't trust easily, especially when it comes to someone who is threating to dismantle her company, but she'd be lying if she said she didn't find his offer tempting. After finally deciding the path she will choose, a bigger problem emerges—the real enemy is lurking in the shadows and closer than she ever expects.
