TW: Description of past assault; mugging.
After a traumatic attack back home, British expat Ellen Hunter has sworn off men, especially Kane Fielding, Boston blueblood and renowned playboy, who seems to change his girlfriends with his boxers. But her boss sends her to schmooze his company, and Ellen is shocked to find she can’t keep her mind—or her hands—off Kane.
Forced to helm his family’s business after his father’s tragic death, Kane happily sacrifices emotional intimacy—it’s a small price to pay for keeping what’s important to him private. Now someone is setting fire to his mills and he needs all his focus to keep the company on track. What he does not need right now is to fall for this English ice queen who wants to either kiss him, kick him, or run from him.
When the tabloids add his and Ellen’s budding relationship to the arson story, Ellen’s job, and her future in Boston, are put at risk. Kane will have to convince her that he is worth the hit to her career—before the flames of the arsonist consume everything they’ve worked for.
