Aiden Nolan doesn’t have time for love, for games, or for romance. He only cares about two things: money, and his sister, and he vowed that he wouldn’t let anything change that. And then he saw her.
Alexandra James agreed to spend Christmas with her friend Margaret’s family because she had no-where else to go. However, she feels out of place in the large ostentatious manor, with the quiet servants, and the disappearing doors. She’s also not happy when she finds out that Margaret has gone off to the Caribbean with an old boyfriend and left her there by herself. And then she saw him.
Aiden and Alexandra are captivated by each other on sight, but neither one wants to admit it. They spend one breathtaking night together but neither one is prepared for what follows. Aiden becomes even more distant and mysterious and Alexandra allows herself to be entertained by the handsome man next door.
Only fate has a plan for them both, and it may not be the one they both had their hearts set upon.
