Years ago, Chase Richards and Mathias Tobler fell in love while training for the US Olympic fencing team. Afterward, they even attended the same business school so they could be together. Then Chase left Mathias alone and heartbroken in Italy. But all of that is ancient history by the time Chase thunders back into Mathias's safe, settled life with a business deal.
There's no way Mathias is going to do business with Chase. He spent nine years picking up the pieces and has moved on in life-and love. But Chase won't give up without a fight: he concocts a scheme to manipulate the market and take over the Tobler family business. If Mathias wants to save it, he'll have to face off against Chase over crossed sabers.
Chase has a reputation as an unscrupulous corporate raider, but the Tobler business holds little interest for him. In reality, he wants Mathias. Chase must win him back-by any means necessary-before Mathias gives his heart to someone else. But how does a cold-blooded corporate raider convince the man he loves that his heart really isn't made of stone?
