What should've been a straightforward eye-for-an-eye starts to unravel as Natalie's unflinching loyalty and kindness begin to thaw Alex's cold intent. But caring for her is unthinkable…since he plans to use everything in his power to ruin her family and everyone else she holds dear.
Natalie shook her umbrella, sprinkling cool water droplets everywhere, as she entered Damon Defense Engineering headquarters in Tysons. She hurried across the lobby toward the elevator, her high heels ringing against the sparkling marble floor.

It was only Monday morning, but if this was how her week was going to go, she didn't want to see Tuesday. She jabbed the elevator button and waited, impatience mounting. When a family van driver using a cell phone had rear-ended her on the Beltway with less than one exit left to her office, she'd almost screamed. Some people might recognize her, and she had to maintain her dignity at all times, especially this year. The elevator doors opened with a soft chime, and Natalie walked inside, glancing at her watch.
Fantastic — half an hour late to a meeting she'd called last week. She would've let her colleagues know, but her cell phone was lying on the breakfast table where she'd forgotten it that morning. She checked her appearance in the mirrored walls and smoothed her hands down her black skirt suit, then closed her eyes and took a deep breath. Calm down. Getting frustrated wouldn't salvage the situation. When the elevator stopped at the fifteenth floor, she stepped out onto the muted beige carpet. Normally the sunlight gave the office a hazy radiance through frosted glass walls.
But not today. Everything looked drab and gray. Her assistant, Danielle Hartman, charged toward her. She was young, only twenty-two, but totally out of shape. Her dirty dishwater-colored pantsuit did nothing for her eyes, hidden behind a pair of thick glasses, or her limp brown hair. Most high school outcasts grew out of their social awkwardness and improved their sense of fashion by the time they finished college.
Danielle hadn't. Which was unfortunate, because she had great skin and a nice smile. It took all of Natalie's self-control to keep her voice down. Vivien had been Ralph's right hand and Natalie's direct boss. Half an hour later, Ralph and Vivien left with a couple of security guards.
And their stuff. In boxes. Damon said he wanted to see you as soon as you got in. He's in Ralph's office. His former office, I mean.

It wasn't difficult to figure out what everyone was thinking as she walked through the maze of cubicles. People looked at her over the partitions with pity and apprehension — pity she was getting canned and apprehension they might be next. The door to Ralph's old corner office was open, but his name plaque was gone. Years of wear and tear had left the ivory walls slightly dingy, except for a couple of pristine squares where he'd hung framed Picasso prints.
The office looked barren without Ralph's clutter—mostly family pictures and souvenirs he'd collected over the years. Someone with cropped black hair sat in an executive leather chair, facing the windows. Torrents of rain blurred the view of gray roads and red brake lights. A large, tanned hand held a cell phone to an ear, but the voice was too low for her to eavesdrop.

She'd never seen him in real life, although there were plenty of pictures in glossy gossip magazines. Being one of the planet's most eligible bachelors and a self-made billionaire tended to make one's face well-known. His entire body emanated authority and raw sexuality. The dark, tailored suit he was wearing tried to throw a veneer of civilization over him but failed.
He would've been frightening if it weren't for the iron control in the winter gray eyes that said he ruled, not his primal instinct. She shivered as his gaze brushed over her, head to toe and then back up to her face. She had the most absurd feeling that he was undressing her with his eyes. He was probably trying to decide if she would cry at bad news and whether he should delegate the distasteful task to someone else.
My assistant said you wanted to see me. He frowned slightly, his gaze darting to her barren ring finger, then back to her face.
