All his trust and ability to love were taken away after Nick's mother, Caroline remarried and turned away, ignoring him after his father died. To protect himself from hurt, Nick had always kept women at a safe distant, and under manageable conditions. Now, he was still charming and handsome but very reserved, with an iron-willed self-control. Lauren Danner was the first to get under his skin. He was charmed by her wit and genuinely like her courage and even her stubbornness. She also presented a challenge for she refused to have a ‘sleazy affair' (as she called it) with him.
Nicholas Sinclair was the most irresistible man Lauren, of all her 23-years had ever met. Loving him was the greatest risk she ever took and keeping him at an arm's length was becoming increasingly difficult as they shared the same work space. Nick was so cynical she loathed to mention her relation with Philip Whitworth, who married Caroline. Nick did find out but he allegedly accused her of being Philip's mistress-turned-spy (and manipulated their contract) and immediately tossed her out after degrading and shaming her (for she begged him on her knees to listen to her explanation and not throw their love away).
Nicholas swore he would never be made a fool by another woman. He would not resolve to bribe a woman back into his life the way he did and failed with his mother. But when Nick came to his senses, realised she was the best thing that ever happened to him and the truth came out into the open to prove Lauren's innocence-he just might do it.
