Hugo Xavier, a French playboy hell-bent on possessing Isobel, a gorgeous Greek pauper.
Set in Monaco, this is a story about a man who has it all but his past ensures he can't acquire what he yearns the most...and a woman, whose heart isn't up for bargaining, no matter the cost.
A tug-of war of seduction, of wills, of pride.
A whirlwind affair that will change both of their lives forever.
A woman could be… Everything. Anything. Nothing.
I was a connoisseur of beautiful things, women included. I didn’t just have one, but three—all exotic, stunning and would do anything I asked.
My life was grand. It was perfect and I was content with it all, until a little minx came along. The second our eyes clashed, giving me a glimpse of her violet blue depths that had a mixture of stubbornness and will but with a hint of something else…
Choices were made. Decisions were done.
And for the very first time in my life, I was challenged with something risky, merely igniting the animal in me.
He came into my life in the most unconventional way, turning my world upside down when I least expected it.
He was my dark knight amidst the chaos that was my life. His persistence in conquering me tested my resistance, and at one point, I thought I had prevailed. However, the immediate turn of events left me shocked and alone. He left me when I wasn’t ready to walk away.
For months, I searched for him, stalking the internet for any news of him, hoping that one day I would get to see him again. Nevertheless, he was great at covering his tracks, and I was left resorting to tactics I hadn’t considered before.
I simply wanted another chance. He had wanted me once. He could want me again, couldn’t he? He left a gaping hole in my life, and I knew nothing could ever fix it, except him. I was will-ing to put myself out there for him to relish, criticize, and devour at his will.
The heart wants what it wants, and it wanted Hugo Xavier.
Puzzled by Hugo’s mercurial attitude, the damning bed of flowers and Julien’s warning, Isobel found herself in chilling territory. Stuck between vowing to find the real reason behind it all and fearing for her life, Isobel must summon the courage to fight for the man she loved or lose everything she held precious in her heart.
