Ethan, an international steel tycoon, traumatized by sexual experiences in his youth, has never believed he would be able to love a woman—or be loved by one. Until he meets Sophia.
Sophia, a wealthy Brazilian widow, fled her own country after a tragic incident that killed her husband, and something terrible she did—but can’t remember. She starts a new life in London with her 3 year-old daughter, living a lonely existence.
She starts a relationship with Ethan, not counting on meeting Alistair, a powerful banker from a traditional and noble Scottish family, who commands his bank with a strong hand, and yet knows better than anyone that money truly cannot buy love or happiness, but it can buy distraction.
Alistair has no trouble finding women for one-night stands, who will indulge him in his desire to physically punish them to abate his own tortured soul. Any woman would do. Even Sophia.
