Mountain cabin in winter



Can the willful and independent Mariana handle being taken in hand by the billionaire spy?

When crisis management and PR specialist Mariana Stein meets a handsome and charming tree surgeon, William Smith, in the frostbitten orange orchards of Orlando, she feels a powerful attraction and breaks her strict rules about mixing business and pleasure.


When she meets up with Smith again on his turf in the hills of Connecticut, she discovers that this green-thumbed man of her dreams is an onion with many layers, each more intriguing than the next and as likely to make her laugh as to make her cry.

William Smith has learned to manage his multiple roles well over the years, always governing himself by what is expected of a man, to protect and defend the most vulnerable. In Mariana, he has found his one true match, and there is no way he can afford to let her slip through his fingers. They marry in a rush, but Mariana’s stubborn streak is vexing and could prove lethal.


As the couple begins their life together, Mariana learns Will’s big secret—and she’s only scratched the surface.
