When the going gets tough, the tough get Alpha.
Silicon Valley billionaire CEO Gabriel Betts has finally found the happiness he’s been searching for—in gorgeous, brilliant fellow billionaire Lauren Taylor, the so-called reigning queen of the biotech industry. But when Chinese healthcare mogul Li Na Zhao kidnaps Lauren’s sister in a high-stakes game of corporate espionage, the world they’ve worked so hard to protect comes crashing down. Li Na agrees to trade Hannah for Lauren’s Paragon Laboratories and her help—onsite and in person. In an attempt to keep Lauren safe, Gabe calls in his security-industry professional brothers to help get Hannah back. But when the rescue effort stumbles, Gabe must pick up the pieces to protect the woman he loves…before she makes the ultimate sacrifice.
Being a scientist gives Lauren Taylor a purpose in life. At twenty-five, she's the CEO of a billion-dollar biomedical company, Paragon Laboratories. On the brink of a major discovery, Lauren lets nothing interfere with her work. Until she meets Gabriel Betts, the gorgeous and brilliant CEO of another Silicon Valley startup, and is forced to face her inconvenient and overwhelming attraction to him.
Billionaire Gabriel Betts is a successful scientist in his own right. He's made his way in the world by being an early adopter and never losing focus. Captivated by Lauren's brilliance and unselfconscious beauty, he's determined to win the reclusive female CEO over at any cost.
But what neither Gabe nor Lauren are prepared for is the white-collar danger that's lurking in Silicon Valley... The danger that threatens not only their companies, but their very existence.

Ruthless technology billionaire Lucas Ford has run out of time. The rules of his trust make it clear: be married by thirty-five and stay married for one year. Otherwise, bye-bye inheritance—and the family fortune will be inherited by his sister, who might very well blow it on Botox and funding her sorority alma mater.
FOR BETTER AND FOR WORSE…
Struggling escort Blake Maxwell has a choice: accept Lucas's offer to marry him in exchange for a million dollars or keep working as an escort until she can scrape enough money together to quit the business for good. This is the chance she's been waiting for—to take care of her ailing mother and leave her own backstabbing sister behind…
TO LOVE, HONOR, AND OBEY…
Both Blake and Lucas are forced to make the best of a bad situation. As their enemies fight to take them down, they have to work together to meet their goal: stay married for one year and persuade everyone that it's real so the terms of the trust can't be contested.
But keeping things real complicates matters even further.
Blake can't afford to have feelings for her brooding client. She needs to take the money and run to protect her seriously wounded heart. On the other hand, Lucas can't afford to lose the one woman he's ever really fallen for…the woman he never expected to steal his heart.
TILL DEATH DO US PART…
But they have to survive their respective demons, their attraction to each other, and their enemies first!
