Once forbidden…

Lara Bradley’s breath catches in her chest the moment millionaire Gabriel Devenish swoops back into her life, bringing with him a whirlwind of emotion. Because the man who stands before her is no longer the carefree object of her teenage desires but a man – hard, distant and ruthless…

Now desired!

Gabriel knows he should walk away from Lara, and that he must show her that wanting a happy-ever-after with him is futile. But proving just how wrong he is for her only makes him realise just how right she makes him feel…threatening the very foundations of the wall he’s built around his heart.
