Aria Longbottom, a bubbly career oriented women, no longer had a place for a man in her life. Thrown over five years ago, by her then boyfriend Dale Carmichael, on the night of New Year’s Eve, for her more attractive cousin, Linda Shubeck, Aria was not all that eager to get back on that horse again. Especially, not with her multi-millionaire and playboy childhood friend, Justin Kay. That New Year’s Eve night, lost in passion in his arms could very well have been on a rebound. It surely wasn’t anything more. Or was it? But that was something she would never know having run out on him the very morning after.
Justin Kay, the fun loving super rich, who enjoyed hard work and then the hard booze and partying lifestyle. He should not have rightly remembered a New Year’s Eve night with Aria Longbottom tucked close in his arms. He should not have remembered her there at all, for she had been wearing a mask. Something that had surprisingly stayed on. But five years on and she was all he remembered still.
In an effort to settle what Aria deemed was an old debt, she approached Justin with nothing more than a business deal. A method to assuage old guilt. A method to move on past what must surely be an unhealthy obsession over Justin. Five years was too long a time to not even contemplate another man. And Aria certainly hadn’t so much as glanced at another man in all that time. It was time to move on.
Only Justin had his own ideas of how things should move on and with whom. With his usual signature grin and incorrigible personality, he sets out to dupe and seduce Aria back to where he wanted her most. In his bed, in his life and as his wife.
