A.J. Grayson has come a long way from adopted orphan to fast-rising executive at a cutting-edge Altanta technology firm. Now an anti-terrorist agency wants to use the revolutionary artificial intelligence system she developed to thwart a plot against Jafir's monarchy -- and handsome, domineering Damon Toca, the region's newly crowned king.
In six short months, Damon has gone from gallery owner to controversial politician. When his cabinet hires A.J. Grayson -- without his consent -- he gets ready for a battle. Expecting a computer geek, and skeptical of A.J.'s highly touted secret invention, he is stunned to find strong-minded beauty who arouses much more than his suspicions. But someone in his inner circle is in league with a treacherous adversary who threatens his throne, his nation's tenuous peace and his future with a woman he'll risk everything to have and to hold.
