Billionaire Jake Hennessy has vowed to never love again. His fiancée’s mysterious death left him shattered, and now the media fallout has forced him into hiding.

But once bitten, now twice shy, Jake is determined to win this battle of feelings between him and Molly. He already owns her home, and now he’s determined to have her… on his terms.
Molly though is determined to resist him. Because she knows, when Jake’s done with her, he’ll have demolished not just her home, but her tender heart too. Trouble is, he’s just too damn irresistible.
