The third book in #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken's contemporary romance series about three bachelor brothers and the women who capture their hearts!

Brant Wellington has spent the past four years living in a hell of his own making, but now he's willing to do anything to get away from the anger and pain of his past. So when his grandfather offers him a job as the new VP of hotel acquisitions for Titus Enterprises he accepts. Not because he needs money. Or even a job. But because the job offers him the one thing he can't say no to: a challenge.

Nikki knows that people are worse off than her. Sure, she's blind and lost her one and only child as well as the love of her life, but she chooses to focus on the fact that at least she has a job at one of the hottest boutique hotels in the state. Everything is perfect, until the new VP of hotel acquisitions blows into the hotel like a hurricane. When he books a massage with her she can't help the way her hands move across his body. She wants him, he wants her, but it's wrong, not to mention she could get fired.

But it's clear the new VP wants her as much as she wants him. And when they have a one-night stand, everything becomes clear. Nikki's past has come back to haunt her, and this time, she refuses to let him walk away again.
