New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter introduces the Original Heartbreakers—beginning with a ruthless businessman about to break his own rules—in this special prequel novella!
Rich, powerful and utterly untamable, Dane Michaelson is every woman's darkest fantasy. When he returns to his hometown to witness his father’s upcoming nuptials, he is unprepared for the redheaded beauty soon to become his stepsister. He's never wanted anyone more.
Kenna Starr has no desire to join the long list of women on rotation in Dane’s bedroom. The single mom learned the hard way—bad boys do bad things, and someone always gets hurt. But Dane isn’t fighting fair. With every heated look, stolen kiss and illicit caress, he melts her defenses.
Soon, the girl with the rep and the man who claims to be heartless are locked in a passionate affair. But when trouble arises, will they stand together or fall apart?
