"This is what a love story should be." - RT Book Reviews

She's up for sale and he's the highest bidder.

Gennaro De Laurentis might prefer motorcycle leathers to Armani, but when it comes to what he wants, he's as ruthless as any corporate raider in a killer suit. And he wants Chiara, the unforgettable woman who denied the passion sizzling between them and walked away without a backward glance. Now he has the high society princess back in his power - and he'll risk everything to make her his.

When glamorous fashion designer Chiara Armati goes up for auction, she's selling her company over dinner for charity. Nothing else. As bidding rises to astronomical heights, she gets nervous. Yet only when she discovers her purchaser's identity does she realise she's caught in a trap. She's never stopped wanting Gennaro or forgiven his betrayal. Now she's at his mercy - and he's as irresistible as ever!
