But when their arrangement goes from a few hours to a few days, will Felicity be left out in the cold this Christmas?


Written by Caitlin Crews

Wild child Angelique Masterson will do whatever it takes, to get whatever she wants—and what she wants, is her late father’s hotel empire. Her plan? She’ll make a deal with the devil…

Her proposition is simple. Zain will give Angelique a job at his hotel, and she will give him the one thing he desires the most—her! But, with six months to prove herself, what will happen when Zain returns for the one, red-hot night she promised him?
