"Tell me your name." 

A shiver runs down my spine at the

commanding, deep voice that sounds in my ear. I keep myself still, trying my

best not to react considering we’re surrounded by at least a hundred people,

but oh, how I want to.

If I could, I’d throw myself into the arms

of the man who’s standing far too close to me.

He’s demanding to know my name as if I owe him some sort of favor, which

I can’t help but find hot.

Irritating, but hot.

"Tell me yours first," I murmur in return,

turning my head in the opposite direction, so it appears I’m not even talking

to him. He stands behind me, tall and broad, imposing in his immaculate black

suit and crisp white shirt—the silvery tie he wears perfectly knotted at his


I might not be looking at this very

moment, but I’d memorized everything about him the moment I first saw him not

an hour ago. He’d drawn plenty of attention without saying a word, striding

into the room as if he owned it, casting that calculating gaze upon everyone in

attendance. Looking very much like the mighty king observing his lowly

subjects—until his eyes lit upon me.

He watched me for long, agonizing minutes.

Butterflies fluttered in my stomach as I felt his hungry eyes rake over my

body, and for a terrifying moment I wondered if he could see right through me.

I shifted the slightest bit, inwardly cursing myself for coming tonight, but I

held firm. I refused to react.

I still refuse to react.

"You don’t know who I am?" He sounds

amused at the notion, and I’m tempted to walk away without a word. My earlier

nerves evaporate, replaced by a steely spine and an even steelier attitude.

He’s so confident, so arrogant, I’m sure he believes he has me.

He doesn’t know who he’s dealing with

then, does he?

We’re at a local wine- and

brewery-tasting, and I’m here representing the bakery my family owns. The one I

was recently allowed to take over and run since I’d graduated college. The

business they all believe is going to fail. So

why not give it to Marina? She can’t screw it up too badly.

That’s what I overheard my father telling

my uncle. The memory of his words still cuts straight to the bone.

Finally I chance a glance at the man

behind me, drinking in his thick brown hair tinged with gold, the way it

tumbles across his forehead, his twinkling green eyes, the faint smile that

curves his full lips. The combination gives him a boyish appearance. It’s a

complete illusion because there is nothing boyish about this virile man before


"Perhaps you can enlighten me." I offer a

carefree smile and turn to face him, the nerves returning tenfold when he takes

a step toward me, invading my personal space. His scent hits me first: clean

and subtle, a mixture of soap and just . . . him. No

cologne that I can detect.

Rather unusual. Most of the men I know

slather themselves in expensive scents all with the purpose of drawing us silly

women in. Instead, they end up choking us.

With the exception of this man. I find the

uniqueness refreshing.

A slow smile appears, revealing perfectly

straight white teeth. "Gage Emerson." He thrusts his hand toward me. "And you are . . .?"

He’s not very subtle. And he’s exactly who

I suspected, not that I had any real doubt. The very man who recently bought up

what feels like half of the Napa Valley, all in the hopes of turning it around

and selling it to God knows who just to earn a hefty profit.

Not caring in the least that he’s forever

changing the landscape of the very place I’ve grown up in. And devastating my

family in the process.

"Marina Knight," I say. God, I sound

breathless, and I want to smack myself. I’m not here tonight because of him. I

came for other reasons. To promote the family bakery, to mix and mingle with

local business owners, many I consider friends. My life in the Napa Valley is

all I know.

And this gorgeous man standing in front of

me is trying to take what I know away from me for good.
