THE BUILDING WASN’T quite what Sophie had been expecting. Although now
that she was standing outside the impressive Georgian edifice she had to
concede that she had just rushed to assume the obvious.
Arrogant billionaire…shiny over-the-top offices. The sort of place that
announced in no uncertain terms that its occupant was not a man to be
messed with because he was bigger, stronger and richer than you.
Buffeted by a brutal winter wind, and noting that it was already dark at a
little after five-thirty in the afternoon, she remained hesitantly staring at the
It was an impeccably groomed four-storeyed town house, fronted by
black railings and a shallow flight of steps that led up to a black door. In all
respects it was identical to all the other town houses in this uber-prestigious
crescent in the heart of London. From Bentleys to Teslas, every single car
parked was high-end.
There was a hush about the place which made her
think that if she hung around for too long, staring and frowning and
dithering, wondering whether she had done the right thing or not, then

because Leonard-White had expressly banned her from contacting his son,
and what sort of reception was she going to get?
Having gone against the
wishes of her boss to uneasily follow what her inner voice had told her?
She had no idea, because Alessio Rossi-White, from everything she had
seen of him, was a forbidding and terrifyingly remote law unto himself.
Sophie pressed the buzzer, and the nerves which she had been keeping at
bay leapt out from their hiding places and her heart began to beat faster. The
disembodied voice on the other end was a woman’s, clipped and wellmodulated, and it told her that, no, unless an appointment had been made,
there was absolutely no chance that she would be allowed in.
‘I’m afraid,’ the woman said, without a trace of regret in her voice, ‘that
Mr Rossi-White is only in the city for a few days, and his calendar is far too
packed for him to see anyone at all, whatever the circumstances. Of course,’
she added, ‘if you would like to make an appointment…’
‘I’ve spent hours getting here…’
