To save the firm his father built, ambitious CEO Hal Mercer has to initiate a hostile takeover of industry giant D'Arville Industries.
Owned by the family of the only woman he's ever loved, Kate D'Arville certainly isn’t going to stand by and let him destroy her family's empire. If only she’d have dinner with him, he could make her understand his intentions. If Hal fails, it's his family’s company that's doomed, his employees who'll lose their jobs. He can't let that happen, but Hal isn’t used to having everyone counting on him like this.
Problem is, it’s becoming less clear which is more important to him—winning the corporate battle of his life or the heart of the woman he loves.
