In the glittering world of the South of France, where secrets lie behind every corner and passion burns hotter than the Mediterranean sun, Evie Madison finds herself at a dangerous impasse when love, betrayal, and a stolen ruby pendant intertwine in a web of intrigue.
Life took a sharp turn for Evie Madison the night her grandmother's precious ruby pendant was brutally stolen. Now, ten years later, the opportunity to reclaim it emerges, and Evie can't resist the temptation of stealing it back.
But fate has a twisted sense of humour, and the first person she encounters after the theft is none other than Raphael Dauphin—the enigmatic French billionaire who shattered her heart when he vanished from her life that very same night a decade ago.
In a dangerous game of deception and desire, Raph seizes the chance to draw Evie into his world. Amidst the encroaching threat of security guards hot on her trail, he proposes a risky solution: become his fake fiancée in exchange for his protection. A charade, which Raph convinces himself, is only a means to an end, a way to secure a crucial property deal on the French Riviera.
But as their sizzling chemistry reignites, Evie’s dark past resurfaces, and she realizes that her life is threatened once again. With danger closing in, Evie and Raph must confront their tangled emotions and work together to survive, navigating a treacherous journey filled with betrayal, lies, and stolen moments of passion.
Will they be able to break free from the past and find true love amidst the chaos, or will the secrets they keep tear them apart forever?
