When it comes to business or pleasure, middle-class Jessalyn knows she cannot risk losing her heart--or her livelihood--to blue-blooded Darius all over again.
Years of control and discipline vanish the moment Aikido champion Darius comes face to face with Jessalyn, the incredibly sweet teenager he had met ten years ago, the one who had left an indelible brand on his own teenage heart. But it seems to have gone both ways, for Jess now owns an antique store, a passion she had shared with him over the hours they had once spent together. Now, though, she will control the inheritance--his beloved uncle's priceless heirlooms--and he can't decide if he wants to publicly crush her or simply crush her in his arms.
To make matters worse, someone else is aware of their impasse, and attempts are being made on their lives.
The inheritance must go to somebody.
Survivor takes all.

This book rates 10 out of 10. As of this moment, this is one of my FAVORITE Dorothy Callahan books. Dorothy Callahan has created characters that jump off the page and into your life. If there is a "first" Callahan book you should read, this should be it. You'll be hooked and never look back. I strongly recommend any of Dorothy Callahan's book. Why? First, she's an outstanding and gifted author whose characters are strong, relatable, interesting, and intelligent. Second, Ms. Callahan participate's in the Read and Rescue movement. This is a group compromised of published authors who have pledged a portion of books proceeds to animal rescues, while also highlighting the need for foster parents and forever homes for the numerous and well deserving pets waiting in shelters.
Love this book! Perfect read for the summer.
**Read this as part of the Shades Of Desire: 10 Sweet & Spicy Romances Box Set** ~ 3.5 A Decade for Darius Stars ~ A Decade for Darius was a very sweet and adorable romance. Don’t let the cover deter you from checking out this book ( I'm not a fan of the cover). I am also not much of a contemporary romance fan, but I found this one to be oh so sweet. Jessalyn and Darius meet as teenagers only one time, but that one time was enough to change both their lives. It was love at first site. I liked Jessalyn. She works hard to own her own business and to become a women of worth. Darious I also enjoyed him. He is a rich blue blood, but he does not act like it. He made something of himself and owns his own business. They worked as a couple. It’s love lost and love found. A sweet storyline. I also enjoyed the antic aspect of the story too. We also get some family secrets come to life at the end, which add intrigue as well as the plot to kill Darious. What can I say only that A Decade for Darius was sweet and enjoyable. *Disclaimer: Review copy provided of Shades Of Desire: 10 Sweet & Spicy Romances with the sole purpose of an honest review.
