For Emma Archer, college isn’t about freedom. It also isn’t about getting a degree to make money. She wants no part of the world of wealth that could be hers by birthright. For her, college is about the chance to put in her dues and land a coveted position at a publishing company, a chance to make something of herself through her own efforts.
Gavin Locke’s arrival changes all of that. The brooding, devilishly handsome brother of her best friend seems determined to destroy her careful control and plans. Already wounded by past emotional betrayal, Emma doesn’t want to be the victim of a man who represents everything she is trying to flee. She’ll have to navigate the struggle of her pride and heart or face a future of both personal and professional failure.
