What she thought was the biggest mistake ever, turns out to be the only thing her body and mind would never let her forget.

The owner of the most gorgeous face and the most impossible temper ever, Dominick Altier will make the wildest of her fantasies come true…
Is falling in love with the devil worth giving up dreams and betraying principles?

I was so excited to get this book  from Diana i was just disappointed i didn't have as much time as i wanted to read it! but i finally got it finished and it was worth waiting for!

With a few innuendos and a sultry look that's it the game is on. But with the number of moves she has available vanishing quickly and her dark admirer gaining ground who will win this deadly game of cat and mouse?

I have love all of the books that Diana has published and this one was just a good! I loved every page. the book keeps you grip from page 1. I loved how all the characters came together and interacted with each other. they where the usually tricks and turns that you would expect from Diana, one minute you are sure of what is going to happen and just as quickly you are turned the completely the other way.

I did not no which of the characters I liked more or who I wanted to win! I loved Scarlett she was such a strong female character and kept Dominick in his place but at the same time Dominick Keeps Scarlett on her toes and pushes her out of her comfort zone.
I loved the build up and tension between the two and how they bounce off each other.

Another brilliant story between to fire, stubborn and steamy people. Its a game of wills and its anyone's game. READ READ READ another amazing book by Diana Nixon!
