Anne Marchand is a successful, independent businesswoman who loved her late husband, Remy, with all her heart, and no one could ever take his place. William Armstrong knows that, but he'll do anything in his power to make Anne see that it's okay to love again. William's a patient man. It was discipline and a willingness to take risks that helped him build his hotel chain. And when he sees Anne's beloved Hotel Marchand being threatened by a takeover bid, he can't sit back and do nothing, so he counters with a secret offer himself. The only mistake he makes is not telling Anne.
