Revenge has been the only thing on real estate tycoon Marcus Pearson's mind since his mother's mistreatment at the hands of her upper-crust employer. He worked his way up from the bottom, but the only way he's going to get entry to their exclusive world is by finding a wife already in it. So when the most beautiful woman he's ever seen turns out to be a socialite from "old" money, and needs his help, he has the perfect proposition--marriage.
Pamela Harrington will do anything to save the women's shelter she volunteers at, even agree to a marriage of convenience. She isn't worried about the pretend passion with Marcus turning real, no matter how attractive he is--she's sworn off powerful, driven men who use her for her family's connections.
So she'll deny the way her pulse races with one look from his crystalline blue eyes. And he'll ignore the way his body throbs with each kiss from her full lips. Because there's no way he'll lose his blue-collar heart to the blue-blooded beauty.
