The gorgeous hunk tempts her with the two things she can’t resist-his expertise and his passion-and soon melts her resolve. But when she finds out Michael is her new boss, all she sees is a repeat of the heartbreak she’s suffered before. Michael has his own demons-twenty years worth. Yet, the moment he lays eyes on the sexy lab tech, he wants more than a few test samples analyzed. As their chemistry explodes, Victoria unleashes a desire that has him ready to risk it all. But he’ll have to put his heart on the line to convince her that they both share the same dream…a lifetime of love.
