Overview

She succumbed to desire with a masked stranger during Rio’s licentious carnaval…but will it lead to love or hate?

Jessica Meredith, acting CEO of the shipping company founded by her grandfather, strives to prevent its hostile takeover by Brazilian shipping magnate Rafael Castelar. During their meeting in Rio, she is incensed by his refusal to negotiate. Later, she attends an upscale carnaval party where the lights go out and the merrymaking turns into an orgy. Thankfully, she is rescued by a modern-day Zorro and whisked away to a dark patio. The comfort of the masked gallant’s arms soothes her fears—until gratitude becomes love to a samba beat.

Back in New Orleans, resentment and jealousy seethe beneath the surface of the family empire. Facing lethal threats both within her family enclave and outside it, Jessica prepares to fight tooth and nail to hold onto her heritage—even if she must embrace the man determined to possess it…and her.
