With white-hot revenge…
Karolina's thoughts on marriage didn't count. She was a woman like any other trapped in her father's web, to be used as payment, a bartering chip, or a honeytrap according to his whim.
Karolina Karolides lost her innocence the night her mother was pushed out of a helicopter above a featureless ocean by Karolina's father, a merciless slaver. When a woman outlives her usefulness, she's disposed of, demoted, or sold on. Karolina's fate is to be offered as bride to Irish hardman Conor Murphy in exchange for some polo ponies and a promise of untold wealth.
Since her mother's death, freeing her father's captives and exposing the extent of his unimaginable crimes has been Karolina's goal. Is Conor Murphy a convenient escape route from imprisonment at the embassy, allowing Karolina to pursue her revenge, or does Conor have an agenda of his own?
How hard can it be to resist a man with the black-hearted charisma of Conor Murphy? Surely, she only has to play-act the part of bride? A man with such blistering good looks can't possibly be interested in the physical side of marriage with a plump innocent with attitude.
