Alicia Michaels needs a major career reboot, so she's got no time for romance. But starting over in Atlanta is an uphill battle for the cautious PR rep--especially after she teams up with wealthy Richmond Crawford on a make-or-break project. For one thing, the risk-taking entrepreneur is nothing like the staid businessman he used to be. For another, she and Richmond can't see eye-to-eye on anything--except that the reckless attraction between them is sizzling, off-the-charts trouble . . . Playing by the rules got Richmond betrayal from his rich family--and shattering heartbreak. He's got to prove he can be his own man, so keeping things strictly-business with Alicia is the smart play. Still, even their conflicts only make Richmond want more of her honesty and courage. But a shocking revelation will endanger everything they're fighting to build. And making things right could be the final deal breaker . . .
