A Diamond Magnate Novel

When Leon tries to force Violet into marriage, it's war for both of them. The battle is hot and dirty, and no one walks away without scars.

I never dreamed of getting married.
I dreamed about freedom.

When my stepfather promised Leon Hart a partnership in his clandestine software company, he offered me as part of the package deal. It’s a win-win situation for both men. My stepfather gets rid of his damaged stepdaughter, and Leon becomes second-in-command of the biggest underground IT operation in the country. I’ll do what I must to escape my fate.

Even if it means turning my powerful and dangerous betrothed into my worst enemy.

Note: Violet and Leon's story concludes in Imperfect Affections (Book 2).
