** From USA Today Bestseller Lila Lacroix **
For five years Vanessa has been running. Running from her ex, running from her past, running from any kind of meaningful relationship.
When her boss, billionaire property developer Jonathan Jergen, offers her millions of dollars to marry her so he can stay in the country, Vanessa can't help but be tempted. After all, with that kind of money, she could escape her past forever. It should be easy, right, pretending to be in love for a couple of years? Or so Vanessa thought.
As she and Jonathan get closer, Vanessa struggles to stop herself from opening up to a man, something she's learned from experience is a very bad idea. But will Jonathan's charming personality break down the barriers Vanessa has spent years building?
This 15,000 word story is the first part of a trilogy.
