"This is what a love story should be." - RT Book Reviews

How far will a woman go to save her family' future? Marina Lucchesi must choose between preserving her dignity and securing her father's legacy by the only means possible: masquerading as a rich man's mistress. Ronan Carlisle is a man with a mission: to put an end to the sick games played by a rival tycoon.

Ronan's own sister was his victim and Ronan is determined that no more innocents will be hurt the way she was. In Marina he finds the perfect decoy to ensure his strategy's success and he makes her an outrageous proposition. But soon he realises he wants far more.

Can he persuade her to become more than a mistress in name only? Will she trust him, and herself, enough to believe in love?
