With all she has to offer, she's his to command... Aria DeWitt is a runaway bride. Only months away from her wedding, she panicked, returning her engagement ring and donating her gorgeous gown to charity. She's less than pleased when she's reassigned to a new work project and sent to work with Grant Kingston in the middle of nowhere. She knows of his reputation as a recluse and genius, but she isn't prepared for how handsome, powerful and deliciously Dominant he is or how he ignites something inside her that no man ever has. Grant isn't happy when his cherished solitude and creativity are shattered by Aria's unwanted and unwelcome arrival. That is until he glimpses her carefully concealed vulnerability. Aria's confidence and responsiveness intrigue him, ensnaring him in a way he'd never believed possible, chipping away the ice that shrouds his heart. As he interacts with her, he realizes why she ran from marriage. She's never met someone strong and complex enough to hold her interest. And suddenly, he's determined to be that man.
