He broke her heart and made her an object of scorn and derision in the national media…and now, to save her son, she might have to let him do it all over again.
Jade Lin dreamed of curing cancer. While she pursued a doctorate in biology, America’s tabloid sweetheart, Kyle Galbraith, pursued her. When she finally let down her guard and gave him her heart, he publicly humiliated her by announcing his engagement to the woman his fans had been rooting for all along.
To add to her misery, Jade was unfairly shamed and vilified in the press as a mentally unstable woman who stalked Kyle’s beloved new fiancée. To escape the humiliation, Jade had no choice but to disappear and change everything about herself—her name, her appearance, and her dreams.
Now, ten years later, she’s attorney Verity James, and she fiercely protects her secrets, including the son Kyle knows nothing about. Her goal is to become a partner in the largest law firm in Nevada—a powerful position from which she can better protect her son should the paparazzi ever find them. To reach her goal, all she has to do is impress the firm’s newest client and get his company on retainer.
Kyle, now Vice President of his family’s medical company, GEM, is sent to Las Vegas to work with the attorneys hired to defend a lawsuit against GEM’s miracle cancer-curing drug. He’s shocked to find Jade, the one woman he always regretted losing.
Old wounds, as well as their highly reactive chemistry, soon boil over and Verity struggles to keep her son a secret in the face of Kyle’s addictive advances. But when they find alarming evidence of the drug’s horrific side-effect—one that could fundamentally change the world—everything they thought they knew is called into question. Have they been targets of a ruthless manipulator all along?
