I thought I needed only one thing in my life–the money and power to crush one man. But the moment I laid eyes on Victoria Corielli, my thirst for revenge was replaced by my craving for her.

No rule would keep me away; no obstacle too large to overcome. Not her will, not our differing social positions, not my infamous past. When she lost everything, I helped her pick up the pieces. When she trusted me with everything, she sealed her fate.

I’ve convinced Victoria she can put her heart in my hands. Now I have to protect it–from her shady stepfather and my business rivals, from enemies known and hidden. I’ll do anything to keep her. And I might have to prove it, because now Victoria”s risking more than her heart to be with me; she’s risking her life.


I broke into at least ten little pieces reading this book. A part of me kept chanting the old saying ‘too good to be true’ the Ian version, another thought Tiny wasn’t the Tiny I came to know in the first book, then there was that little piece that kept wondering just how the hell was this whole thing going to end, whether Ian and Tiny would get their happy ending, would they resolve their issues, settle their emotions and move on, what was the deal with some of the supporting characters as the part of me concerning them was dying to know, and well, would the bad guy get his much deserved, hopefully painful, end? Rest assured, I get all my answers. Or, perhaps, more like I get all my answers concerning Ian and Tiny and their connected problems, feelings, their shared bad guy. So all the basic answers I need to close the book, give out a little sigh of relief and settle for a good night’s sleep for all is right in the world. Except for the moment those supporting characters I felt sympathy for come to my mind and I wonder how they’re doing. Well, that nagging thought is only slightly regrettable since I did get my happy ending. For Ian and Tiny of course, I’m still waiting for mine. Hear that, fate? Or whoever deals with this stuff? How about you, the guy who’s going to rock my world, I’m still waiting for you.
