Leaving a dark secret in her wake, Cara Waters flees from her stable life in Philadelphia to live in the remote Willow Grove, Colorado. Cara’s old college friend Allison manages to drag her along to a Charity Ball, where Cara—feeling awkward and out of place—finds herself drawing the uninvited gaze of a mysterious stranger. The man certainly is handsome, however there is something aggressive in his possessive stare that makes Cara want to escape back to the safety of her little secluded cottage. When it comes time for her to be auctioned, it comes as no surprise that the mysterious stranger is the highest bidder — and it’s a record price! But what she isn’t expecting is that her mystery man is none other than Damien Hayes, the successful CEO of Sol Industries. Cara finds herself later on in the evening standing on Damien Hayes’ balcony, the cool night air brushing her skin with the anticipation of what could possibly happen next.
