Now five Years later, her brother has provided the perfect opportunity for him to exact his revenge and get her back in his bed. So he blackmails her to marry him or her brother will face charges for what he has done. Natalie must accept his request, or the guilt she carries would only increase with more burdens.

Keeping your enemies close…
Natalie Armitage’s world shattered the first time Angelo Belladini mentioned marriage. Their affair had been intensely passionate, but she had learned to close off her heart at an early age, so the thought of exposing it to anyone made her run.
Five years later she’s facing her second proposal from Angelo—but his molten brown eyes are burning with revenge, not desire! To protect her family, Natalie must accept his ring, but she’ll be no meek-and-mild Belladini bride. Angelo’s expert touch might give her body scorching pleasure, but he’ll never win her frozen heart….
