Angelica is at a big charity auction to promote her company's service—providing perfect partners for corporate functions—when she trips off the stage. She squeezes her eyes shut, steeling herself for the crash, and the next things she knows, she's landed in the broad, warm chest of a man. A strong heartbeat, the faint scent of cologne…and when she timidly opens her eyes, who does she see but the handsome Paul Sterling, a famously ruthless corporate shark! Angelica is embarrassed by her mistake, but Paul "buys" her at the auction for an incredible twenty thousand dollars. What could he be after?
