THE QUICKSILVER SERIES
In order to keep his fortune, Eric de Vries needs a wife. Too bad the only woman he wants hates his guts.
Eric de Vries.
Looks like millions. Worth billions.
Unfortunately for this wayward heir, to keep his money, he needs a wife.
And of all the women in the world, he chooses me.
Too bad I've hated him for five years, since he took all my tears and tossed me away.
The guy slept his way through half of New England and discarded women like hotel toiletries.
Been there. Done that.
Still...what would you do for twenty million dollars?
Would you wear the dress?
Fake a smile for the man who broke your heart?
Or would you run far, far away?
Yeah, that's what I thought.
I'll see you at the church.
I wore the dress. We said the vows.
And somehow it became more than just a stunt.
A promise bound by love, not hate. Until he humiliated me in front of all of New York and disappeared.
Now my errant husband has returned, and it's like I never existed.
Except when he looks at me like he wants to rip my dress from my body.
Something's holding him back. And I won't rest until I discover its cause.
See, this wild heir is about to find out: karma's a fickle mistress.
My weapons? Batting eyelashes, high heels, and that red lipstick he can't resist.
I'll break down his mask, little by little. And then I'll make him pay for what he did.
I just need to keep my heart in check while I do it.
A vow. A contract.
A marriage of fire and ice.
But just when Eric de Vries and I found our forever,
the entire world conspired to keep us apart.
A kidnapping. A trial.
A madman bent on revenge.
Now caught in a web of our own passion and a father's obsession,
the harder we struggle, the tighter we're caught.
They say love conquers all, but it feels like we're the conquest.
As the walls close in, I have to wonder...
are we really meant to be?
Or is this love just a trap?
