Claire Westerbrook found it hard to believe that Max Conroy was truly interested in her. Then she discovered he wasn't -- he just wanted information about her boss. Max was studying her company for a takeover and had decided the quickest way to make it happen was through her. Now Claire wants nothing to do with a man who could deceive her with so little remorse.
