Party planner Sienna goes to a hotel's royal suite for a meeting with a client, only to find her former lover, Sheikh Hashim waiting for her. Five years ago they were on the verge of becoming intimate, but then Hashim came to the conclusion that she was a tainted woman-and cruelly threw her aside. Now she finds he's gone so far as to use a fake name to set up this meeting and trap her again. His overwhelming presence and the charisma that coaxed submission from those around him haven't faded in the slightest. He embraces Sienna and gives her a powerful kiss. "I want you. I came here to finish what I started that night."
