Jewel thinks she's found paradise when she lands a job working as an executive assistant on a picturesque land resort. The man she meets in the hotel bar that night proves just as alluring. He is gorgeous and powerful. Intoxicated by her good fortune, that chance encounter turns into a night of sultry passion, and drives her to ecstasy in the arms of a man whose name she does not know. Two days later, Jewel comes to work, excited to meet her new boss, the hotel's owner. Little does she know that the man waiting behind that office door is Piers Anetakis–the stranger who had coaxed her to such sensual heights–and he'll fire her without rhyme or reason just hours later. Outrageous! What a coward!
