Conservative and serious Carlo Attracelli vows he’ll never fall into the gentle grip of love. Then he meets the outrageously dressed and shockingly outspoken Kate Avril and all of his previous priorities and carefully laid plans are blown away.
Kate is torn between her loyalty to Jamison’s, which helped her mother after her father left them, and the devastatingly attractive Carlo who is out to assimilate Jamison’s into the faceless ATI conglomerate. To Kate, he is the enemy, albeit the most handsome enemy she’d ever had the privilege to meet.
In the midst of their struggle, Kate discovers that the current owner of Jamison’s, whose motives she thought were pure, is in fact the true enemy. He is involved in stock manipulation and is trying to embarrass Carlo and steal millions from ATI. In a flash, her righteous indignation finds a new target and her loyalty, and her love, belong to Carlo.
