Anna Winje arrives in Hong Kong as the new Consul General for Norway. Negotiating the largest and most lucrative shipping deal in the history of the two countries places Anna in a vulnerable position. As factions argue the deal, her life is endangered, but instead of hiding, she accepts help from Anton and bravely protects her country’s interests.
Powerful industrialist, Anton Zhang heads the largest corporation involved in the deal. He shields Anna at the request of his government, taking her to his island compound. Together, they withstand escalating attacks – unclear who is the target and who the enemy. Close proximity and danger build into a potent attraction that increases the stakes.
Anton’s love for the courageous Anna is instant and all consuming, but she does not believe she can attract and hold the brilliant younger man. Anna will sacrifice her deal and her life if it will keep Anton alive. Anton vows he will safeguard not only her life, but her heart.
