From USA Today bestselling author Alyssa J. Montgomery comes a passionate enemies-to-lovers story of an Italian billionaire and an Australian primary school teacher as they fight for the life of a child they both love ... and fight the flames of attraction burning between them.


I have every reason to know the Borghettis are pure evil ...

So why won't my heart listen to my head?

Luca Borghetti might be pure Italian sex appeal, and powerful, and a damn billionaire, but he and his family are responsible for EVERYTHING I've lost. My sister. The baby. My father. All gone because of him.


I may have made mistakes, with tragic results, but one thing I know: I will protect what I love. No matter what.

And this woman will give me what I want. No matter how self-interested she is.

Hatred. That's all these sparks between us are. But it doesn't matter. This heartless woman has what Christiana needs and whatever that little girl needs, I will get.

But if what Olivia is telling me is true ... someone has lied to both of us.

'Strong plot with high stakes and an interesting twist' - New York Times bestselling author Cherry Adair
