Callister Jensen, son of billionaire Nathaniel Jensen, was a millionaire in his own right. Despite his family and the connections that came with it, he'd made his way up in the world from scratch.
If you were to ignore the expensive boarding schools he'd jetted around, of course.
But otherwise, he had started off on his own, using his savings to launch a small accessory line. He'd hired his friends from school, beginning his entrepreneurship with only those he trusted, and their business had quickly expanded into entire chains of department stores.
His determination and cynical view of life had been the driving factors in his success, and he was not ashamed of that...until a skinny brunette had walked up and told him in so many words that he was a complete failure.
And when, after many such encounters, he'd found himself completely and irrevocably in love with her, he'd cursed himself for the folly and set about trying to make things right. Namely, how to con her into marriage.
He was a cynic after all.
