The proposition: One year of "marriage" for one million dollars. Sex, yes. Falling in love, no. Desperate to escape crushing poverty and provide for my younger sister, I took the deal. But I violated the rules by falling for Elliot Reed, the gorgeous, brilliant billionaire bad boy...and he broke them by wanting more between us--a bond more profound than any legal contract could provide. However, my complicated past isn't the only thing derailing our marriage. Elliot has his share of skeletons in the closet, and his enemies are determined to use me to get to him. Now it's time for us to make our final stand--unite and fight for our happy ending--except it will require both of us to reveal our ugliest secrets to each other...and the world.
