Social butterfly and eternal wild child, Emilia Connor has had life handed to her on a silver platter but her free ride is about to come to a screeching stop when she returns home to settle her father’s estate.
Confident she is the sole heir to daddy’s fortune and his real estate empire, her hopes are dashed when she comes face to face with the company’s new owner and the one person she left home because of five years earlier, Joshua Darkly.
Determined to cut ties with the company, she decides to take the money her father left her and leave for good this time. But a small caveat in her father’s will dashes her hopes. Not only is Joshua the new owner of Connor Realty but it looks like he’s also her new guardian and mentor for a period of one year to help her sort her own lifestyle and future out.
Deciding not to go gently into that good night, Emilia swallows her pride and begins her sentence but she’s not going down without a fight. Challenging Joshua’s patience at every turn, she’s unaware just how dark the beast she is poking has become.
Will she try her luck one too many times?
