A relationship between them is strictly forbidden, but they are drawn to each other like moths to a flame. Neither would dare cross the line, until now. He calls me PG, short for Paisley Grove, and my heart skips a beat. Nobody calls me that but Hercules Lord, a guy I've had a crush on since we first locked eyes in high school. Even though our attraction has always been strong, Hercules and I could never be together. The hate between our families runs deep enough to create an invisible line in the sand that neither of us has ever dared to cross. But that's never stopped us from gazing longingly at each other from across a crowded room. And we've always been cordial to each other but never true friends. Then there was that night seven years ago. I bet Hercules doesn't know that he's my first. Yet here we are again, locking eyes like old times. As usual, my heart skips beats as desire spreads down my spine like a warm kiss. This moment feels so sweet, fulfilling, and so right, but yet and still, our families would disapprove. However, tonight is very different from the past. Our raw desire cannot be contained. Maybe it's because Hercules and I are older, wiser, and finally ready to cross the line. This standalone must-read billionaire romance has plenty of angst, steam, and romance that'll keep you turning the pages; it also ends with happily ever after.
