Good fortune has smiled upon Gabriel Reid since the day he was born. Blessed with a loving family, educated in the finest schools, he was given a vice-president position in his father’s successful construction business in Atlanta upon graduation. Engaged to a smart, beautiful woman and standing to inherit the CEO mantle, Gabriel’s got it all. But he’s about to meet someone who could change everything . . .
Raised on the mean streets of Chicago, Isaiah Battle refused to succumb to the violence that claimed others in his neighborhood. He forged his own identity from various influences, relying on his strength of character in the face of adversity.
For centuries, the elite of the world have sought the Pimpernel everywhere. Some want to kill him, others want to hire him, but Jack Cavanaugh knows that the love/hate relationship comes with the job title.
At present, Jack is trying to dismantle an investment scheme centered in Las Vegas, but “trying” is the operative word. It’s been a month since he put the face of the scheme behind bars, yet the scam is still going strong. As Jack tries to uncover who has stepped in as the new head, what miniscule evidence there is all seems to point him back to Claire Ramsey, an introverted PhD student studying at UNLV.
If ever there as an unlikely head of an investment scheme, Claire’s it. She has a genius IQ, but from all Jack has seen, Claire’s intelligence is as much a blessing as a curse when paired up with her acute OCD.
