It's been over two centuries since Katharine's death. To keep his heart dead and cold, Alexander works hard to keep his business prosperous. With Lucious and Helena out of the picture, he is once again left with more paperwork than ever. That is until he meets the woman he finally wishes to claim. Abigail Greene is two things: she is strong-willed on the outside and a complete pushover on the inside. When she meets Alexander, her heart begins to beat for him alone...after she gives away a vast amount of his fortune to charity. Yet, history has a habit of repeating itself and a shadow of his past is just around the corner.
