My biggest adversary is out to take everything from me.
My family. My business. My power.
I have sworn to make him pay for his deceit,
but first I must track him down.
I own the biggest tech company in the world as a front for my criminal ways, but she has something I am missing.
Brilliant. Beautiful. Brave.
I am drawn to her. I cannot keep away. She consumes me.
I want her to find him, but I need her to find me.
He vowed to protect me, but even he could not keep me safe.
Now I am gone—hidden away deep in the lair of the devil.
No one is coming for me.
I have only myself to rely on.
Has anyone outsmarted evil and lived to tell their tale?
I’m determined to be the first.
Perhaps I should fear the one that I am running to more than the one I am running from, for he is the one who truly has the power to slay me.
It's all mine now.
Power. Money. Legacy.
I've wanted this for as long as I could remember.
I just didn't expect it to include ghosts from the past.
They haunt me and everyone I care about--threatening to ruin us.
My destiny seems bleak, until Claire Varon.
Fire disguised as ice. The devil with the face of an angel.
Like the eye of a hurricane before the worst part of her storm has yet to strike.
Her secrets push away anyone who dares to get close.
But, I have secrets of my own, making me a worthy adversary against the impenetrable walls she's trapped herself within.
The only thing we agree on is the need for control.
What she doesn't know is that I always win.
