Having led a sheltered life -- except for a major trauma -- twenty-three-year-old Belinda easily falls in love with the handsome, suave Adam. He talks her into running a scam. An extremely wealthy woman is dying and wants to find her granddaughter, who disappeared at three years old. Belinda agrees to pretend to be Kathy, the granddaughter, but while exploring the mansion she has flashbacks and wonders if she really is Kathy.

When her grandmother makes Kathy the sole beneficiary of her will, the lawyer includes a stipulation to protect Kathy from any fortune hunters. She now believes she is safe. But is she?
What do a night on the town in Vegas, big wins, big money, a hot hookup, a mercenary, and a marriage certificate all have in common?
Me. Sierra Lansford. That's what.
I was out for a good time and was winning big.
Then, I hooked up with the mysterious, sexy Aldrick Mirren.
Jackpot! I thought.
Until I woke up married to the guy.
I didn't want to be married -- especially not to a mercenary!
Just when I thought things couldn't get worse, they did.
Being kidnapped by my new husband's enemies is not how I wanted to spend my time in Vegas.
Mercenaries don't have wives, they have clients and marks.
So, why do I feel lucky to have met him?
Can we overcome our hot-headed tempers, and make this marriage work?
Or, are the odds stacked to high against us?

"Who does she think she is? I won't marry her even if she is the last woman on earth," said Hiram Rong.
"Marry into a family with tens of billions of assets? How lucky I am! I won't be so foolish as to break off the engagement. At worst, I can receive money as part of the divorce settlement," said Rachel Ruan.
Their great-grandfathers made a pact about their engagement a hundred years ago. They had been bound even before they were born.
Marrying a kinky billionaire wasn't exactly in my ten-year plan.
Benjamin Chase is not my type. He's abrasive. He's arrogant. He doesn't take anything seriously. I'd die before I dated him, but he has something different in mind.

If I accept, I'll have a fortune, and the opportunity to prove my acting skills with the role of a lifetime. But I also have to accept Ben's quirks - including the fact that he prefers his women bowing and scraping in a ridiculous parody of gender roles I thought we left behind, oh, several decades ago. I have absolutely no intention of submitting in private, but I'll have to be by his side at all the right clubs and parties. Pretending to be his property. He says it's all a game, but my head says to run away.
My heart, on the other hand... not to mention certain other parts of me... secretly craves his ...

We were friends for so long, before we started dating, and people always say best friends make best partners. Our friendship didn't withstand the tests of love. I still remember those days when I was helping you to hit on the girls you liked, or trying to complete your projects because you're lazy.
The Coffee table.

Asmodeus lied to me.
While I shouldn't be surprised, to say my feelings for the archdemon are complicated is putting it lightly. But now, I don't even know if I'll ever have the chance to decide how I feel about him.
Unfortunately, I know the terrible truth.
Asmodeus told me that I was the only homunculus he made that survived -- but there's another one. The leader of the deadly cult that's been abducting archangels and archdemons, Octavian, is just like me. He's a creature made from the flesh of others and given a life he didn't want.

A price I don't know if I can afford to pay. But I get the feeling I don't have a choice. I just hope Michael, Azrael, and the others can find me before it's too late.
