While working to define herself as something other than the surviving spouse of a great man, Mariah Jones receives a life-changing offer. Which will she choose? Love, or her career?

Mariah Jones has lived a charmed life--a life of distinction and luxury. As the wife of an entrepreneur, she has enjoyed the kind of things most others only dream of. But everything screeches to a halt with her husband's untimely death. Now destitute, pregnant, and alone, Mariah must pick up the pieces and make her own way in the world for the first time. After giving birth, she lands a job working as a personal assistant for the CEO of an electronics company. In no time, she proves her worth, and her boss, John Donovan Jr., offers her an advancement opportunity most women would kill for. The only problem? She absolutely hates him. To make matters worse, Mariah's workplace rival burns with animosity and unfounded jealousy. At least, Mariah thinks it's unfounded--until her boss does the unthinkable.

John Donovan Jr. Has had every aspect of his life mapped out since birth. A stint in boarding school, an Ivy League degree, and years of private tutoring culminated in him inheriting the company built by his father. As the CEO of electronics giant E², his life is about one thing--keeping his late father's company competitive. Only after Mariah Jones walks into his life does he realize everything he's been missing. Working with her breathes new life into both his ambitions for his company and his yearnings for love. With conflicting needs warring inside him, John faces a serious problem. He is in love with a woman who is off limits. A woman who works for his company. An epic internal battle culminates in John doing the one thing he knows he shouldn't, and the fallout shakes the very foundation of his business and his life. All seems lost until an unexpected second chance at love gives him a reason to hope.
