Danger. Passion. Obsession.
Heir to a worthless title, Christophe Marchand knows the only way to build an empire in the twenty-first century is with single-minded focus and cold, hard pragmatism. Which means no distractions. But that's before he lays eyes on Charlotte Duval.
Charlotte Duval is no man's arm candy.
An expert in antique furniture, Charlotte is in Paris to close up her recently deceased father's antique store. Her plan? Finish the job as quickly as possible, preferably without touching the still-tender wound of their estranged relationship, and return to L.A.. And even the enigmatic Christophe Marchand can't tempt her to stay. Then the discovery of an elaborate ring hidden inside a 16th century writing desk sets off a chain of events that sends her to Christophe for protection. Soon the pair are traveling to Vienna in search of answers to an unsolved theft that once rocked the art world. But when their hunt intersects with an ominous takeover of Christophe's business, it becomes clear that their common cause will either destroy them -- or force them to come to terms with the true price of love.
This is not your mother’s mob.

“What are we doing?” Charlotte asked as he stopped the car.
He waved away the doorman who moved to open Charlotte’s door. “We aren’t doing anything. You are staying at the hotel while I go to the museum.”
“That’s ridiculous,” she said. “We’re in this together. I’m going, too.”
“No, you are not,” he said, gripping the steering wheel. “You’re safety is my responsibility. Or did you forget that’s why you came to me in the first place?”
“No, I did not forget,” she snapped. “But we’re not in Paris. It’s perfectly safe to go to the Belvedere in broad daylight to stand in front of one of the most famous paintings of all time. We’ll hardly be alone.”
“Be that as it may,” he said, keeping his tone formal, “this is how it will be.”
“I think you may be confused.”
He looked at her. “Confused?”
“Yes,” she said. “About our relationship.”
“Our… relationship has nothing to do with this,” he said.
“I think it does,” she said. “Because clearly you think you’re in charge. That you’re calling the shots and I’m following them.”
“There is no confusion on my part,” he said. “That’s the way it is."
Because that’s the way it always was with his women. The way it had always been. Their interest in his wealth outweighed his interest in their bodies. That meant the balance of power was with him, and if they didn’t like it, he would be all too happy to show them the door.
She laughed a little, shook her head.
“Do you find something funny?” he asked.
“Actually, yes,” she said. “I find it funny that you think I’m here to follow your orders. We came to Vienna to find out more about the ring together. As partners.”
“Partners?” He didn’t have partners. He had employees. And he had very few men — like Julien — he trusted enough that some might call them friends. He had his father. His brother.
There were no partners in the mix.
“Yes, partners,” she repeated. “When two people work together to the same end?”
“Yes, yes,” he said. “I know what a partner is. But I don’t have any.”She sat back in the seat, looked out the windshield. “You do now.”
