Sonja Pride has waited a long time to bring the Heart family to its knees. Her revenge is so close that she can taste it—until she meets Coleman Heart III, the new CEO of the legendary Heart Department Stores. Cole is as hard and arrogant as shes imagined him to be, but shes just not prepared for the impact Mr. Heart III has on her equilibrium. Determined not to be swayed by his chiseled features or his lean, muscular body, Sonja forces herself to remember how much her mother has suffered because of Coles father and uncle. But to Sonjas dismay, her heart refuses to be commanded by her mind.

Cole hasnt had time for life, let alone women. Heart Department Stores has consumed his every waking moment. But time is running out—his family wants to sell out to the competition, his cousin wants to oust him as CEO and the Pride Group has just sent a report stating that Heart Department Stores have slipped to a quality assurance level that will ruin them if he doesnt take action. Then theres Sonja. He cant stop thinking about her, imagining her in his bed. But even as he and Sonja put there differences aside, giving in to their desire, Cole learns of a dark secret that could ruin both of their lives if its true.
