Adair MacLaine was sunshine and the storm. Emerald-green eyes and attitude, I fell for her the moment we met and hated her just as quickly.
Five years ago, tragedy brought her to my door and sparked a love that consumed us like wildfire-hot, unpredictable, and impossible to control. We raged together until her father made her choose between me and the family name.
I left. She stayed.
I'm no longer the poor kid that lost her. I've made myself into a man that won't be ignored.
Now her father is dead, the MacLaine empire is crumbling, and Adair's inheritance depends on the company's largest investor: me.

My whole life changed the night I met Sterling Ford. Brilliant and intense, he came to Valmont with nothing but a scholarship and a chip on his shoulder. He was a grenade and I wanted to pull the pin.
We were doomed from the first kiss.
I've waited for my chance to seize my freedom and now it's finally in reach-until the last person I ever wanted to see again walks into my father's funeral: him.
