Beth's stepbrother drags her to a party where she meets Italian billionaire Dexter Giordanni and falls in love at first sight. Dex has built a business empire in only ten years, and he's flawlessly attractive... How could a man like that be interested in plain old Beth? Though she has her doubts, Beth finds herself entwined by his straightforward confession of love and a possessive kiss. After spending an intimate week together, Beth happily accepts his proposal. But in the shadows, Dex is wearing a bold sneer. His gaze is like that of a predator that has captured its prey, and there is a dangerous truth hidden in the depths of his eyes.
