Summary

“Take the ticket, Isa go to the party,” Tawny encouraged. 
Who knew those words from her model best friend could get Petty Officer Isa Croix in so much trouble.  She took the invitation to the Masquerade ball at the mansion of Bryce Forte for a night of dancing and fun and got more than she bargained for. One night of passion in the billionaire playboy’s arms led to lifelong consequences, she was pregnant. She had planned never to see him again especially when he called her by Tawny’s name in the midst of their desire. She wasn’t the woman he wanted and she would have just keep the memory. 
When Isa gives him the news, Bryce was enraged and accused her of getting pregnant on purpose to trap him and lying from the very beginning.  He gave her the option live with him or leave after the baby was born. Unwilling to ever give up her child, she took the lesser of two evils knowing that she was stepping into the lion’s den.  In the midst of the confusion and raging hormone changes, the attraction between them was still very palpable. But how could she be falling in love with a man who saw her as a liar, especially when he seemed to have plans of his own. Being stuck between a rock and a hard place left her with few options. But would each move they made bring the closer together or leave them at a stalemate? Especially when love was the prize.

    As a young, penniless gentleman, Maxwell Harwick knew he had little to offer Juliet White—the most beautiful debutante of the season—except his love, and one thoroughly scandalous kiss. But when they were discovered in a compromising position, a nearly ruined Juliet fled into the arms of a rich, older lord... taking Max’s heart with her.  
    Now a widow, Lady Juliet Granworth intends to use the fortune she inherited from her odious husband to build a new life in London. Five years have passed, but she’s never forgotten Max… or his soul-searing kiss. Yet it’s clear the newly-minted Marquess of Thayne has not forgiven her—after all, the infuriating man can barely stand the sight of her. But Juliet has endured far too much to give up without a fight and if it’s a battle of wills he wants, it’s a battle he’ll get.  
    He hates her for breaking his heart. She detests him for destroying her future. But beneath all the loathing simmers an intoxicating passion that neither can ignore… and the harder they resist, the harder they will inevitably fall.
