When Michael Medici offers Belle St. Claire a ride home on a snowy night, she never expects that four weeks later she'll be blackmailed into continuing the affair they started that night in order to save her aunt's salon. Worse, as the affair continues, Belle is in danger of losing her heart to the man. Michael's whole life is wrapped up in finding new companies to take over and discovering what happened to his brother, Leo. Now Belle is moving herself to the top of his priority list. The more he shuts her out of his life, the more she makes him second-guess protecting his heart. In the end, he'll either have to open up his heart or lose her forever. Banks' characters are stubborn and strong-willed, but both have their own dark and interesting past.
