This engaging boardroom romance stars a wonderful lead couple. Destiny is a delightful protagonist as she wants to regain her life that she sacrificed for her family; William just wants Destiny. Though her need to run the Europe Division seems selfish as she lacks business experience and could have proven costly to more than just the family firm, fans will enjoy this romance between loving rivals.
