Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0373730934, Mass Market Paperback)He was as tall and dark as the devil...and was her family's hated adversary. But that didn't stop Selene Louvardis from wanting Aris Sarantos with her every breath. Or grabbing her one chance for a forbidden night with him.He was never supposed to learn she'd borne his child. But when Aris stormed back into Selene's life and discovered the truth, nothing would stop the ruthless billionaire from claiming his own. Not her family, not the billion-dollar contract at stake and certainly not something as inconvenient as love.
Though Selene Louvardis had always heard it would be badmouthing the devil to call Aristedes Sarantos that.
Aristedes Sarantos. The destitute nobody who'd risen from the quays of Crete to rocket to household-name status in the shipping industry and beyond. A name that everyone whispered in awe, a presence everyone heeded. A power everyone feared.

She hadn't thought it strange when someone had speculated that he'd come to claim her father's.
She'd thought he'd leave after the burial. But he'd followed the procession to the wake. For the past minutes, he'd surveyed the scene from the threshold of her family mansion, like a general taking stock of a battlefield, a magician setting his stage by casting a thrall.
The moment she thought he'd turn and leave, Sarantos moved forward.
She held her breath as his advance cut a swathe through the crowd. On a physical level, apart from her brothers, who stood his equal, everyone he passed by dwindled into insignificance. On other levels, he was unrivaled

When Aris Sarantos discovers that Selene Louvardis has borne his child, he is determined to keep them both in his life.
