Finally recovered, she wants to indulge in pleasures that are entirely new to her, so she begins by seducing a sexy, mysterious stranger. Only after their one-night stand does she learn their families have been embroiled in a fifteen-year legal battle and the man she’s given herself to is her worst enemy.
The heir to a vast fortune, Harrison Damon believes the unforgettable night he spent with Marietta in Monte Carlo is just a fling, an escape from his responsibilities. Then he discovers she is an Edwards—the family he despises most. He can’t quench his attraction for her, but he won’t let her use it against him. He won’t let her manipulate him to win money from his family. No matter how much he wants her, he won’t let her seduce him again.

This was quite a short book and focused on Etta and Harrison.
Etta had been in a car accident at the age of ten and had been in a wheelchair until a few years ago. She has panic attacks when things change and she has a strong emotional trauma reaction to beer. If she smells it she feels sick.
Harrison has been dealing from the trauma of his parents dying at a young age and then the death of his cousin in the car crash that killed Etta's sister and put her in a wheelchair. He has been in the negotiations for settlement but has not seen Etta since before the accident.
Etta on a night out sees a guys she likes, and at twenty five is encouraged to flirt by her friend, but they end up sleeping together where she tells him its her first time.
Of course its Harrison, and things don't go well when she goes to the meeting the next day and Harrison is very unpleasant.
Etta trys to make things better and goes to see his uncle and explain the situation and it asked to stay the week. Harrison is not happy, but he finds himself pulled towards her. His family find her sweet, charming and love her innocence. All of which he thinks she is acting. But time tells all, and Harrison finds he needs to look back to see the truth where a shocking discovery shatters what they think to be true.
Family pride takes hold and Harrison pushes Etta away. Both miserable, Harrison is finally pushed into action in getting her back and to realising he has unrealistic expectations of his own making.
A lovely read.
