As acting CEO of her grandfather's shipping company, Jessica Meredith must face off against shipping tycoon Rafael Castelar and his ruthless takeover bid. But their meeting in Brazil puts them at a stalemate. Then Jessica attends an elegant party during Carnival that, under the cover of darkness, turns into a lurid orgy. Luckily, Jessica is rescued by a dashing masked stranger whose embrace offers comfort, then sweeps her to ecstasy.
Drawn into a web of haunting sensuality, and confronted with a rival - and a family - she can neither trust nor turn away, Jessica sharpens her claws to fight...even if it means going willingly into the arms of a man determined to own the family empire, and the woman who possesses it!
