Billionaire Max Pierce knew he wanted Megan Harrison, but when he found her unconscious lying in her blood, he thought he had lost her forever. His enemies wanted him to pay for what Pierce Enterprises had done to their families. An Eye for an Eye, they had said, and they knew the one weakness Max Pierce had. Megan Harrison. Through threats, gunshots, car explosion, they would stop at nothing to make sure Max Pierce would pay for his business deal gone wrong. Will Max and Megan's love survive this or will they die at the mercy of his enemies?
Lizzie St. John has had bad luck with men. First, her father disowned her for following her dream and not his. Then her ex-boyfriend stole from her. And now, the owner of her building has told her he’s selling and she only has seven days to come up with an outrageous amount of money if she wants to keep her business. That night with Joshua Pierce had given her a chance to break away, to forget. The moment Josh had touched her, there was no turning back. But then he’d shown her he was just like the others. Now he’s trying to prove he’s different. Could she give him a second chance, finally open her heart and trust again?

No matter how much he says he loves her, no matter how much he is there for her, she can’t let history repeat itself. Or can she?
