Not all marriages lead to happily ever after.
When Annie Smith first meets the self-made tycoon Kyle Anderson she is beyond smitten. Tall, check, handsome, check, rich, check. He’s all her dreams come true, and when he intervenes to save her twin brother from a deserved criminal prosecution she falls head over heels in love with him. They marry in haste and Annie certainly repents at leisure, when the man she thought she loved remains closed-off and cold. Apart from in the bedroom that is where the heat of their passion threatens to burn through her soul.
Kyle Anderson doesn’t trust easily and he’s got no experience with love. When Annie walked out on their marriage shortly after it had begun he swore he’d never be such an idiotic fool again. Until she arrives back on his doorstep, begging for help, and it’s too easy to get her right where he wants: back in his bed, and back as his wife.
But possession is certainly not nine tenths of the law when it comes to marriage: Annie might be playing the part of Kyle’s wife in exchange for his help but she’s learned her lessons the hard way. No way will she fall under his spell again. Does she have what it takes to resist the only man she’s ever truly cared for?
