Summary
Two-time International Latino Book Award-winning author Aya de León brings her unique blend of commercial fiction, timely social commentary, and sexy, page-turning storytelling in a novel of climate change in which the personal and the political collide for one woman torn between her own survival and the survival of the planet.

Marrying a billionaire will fulfill this struggling artist's dreams--and enable her to make a difference. But exposing the truth will put all her convictions on one dangerous line . . . Coming from a troubled youth, Morgan Faraday grabs every opportunity to up-level her life. So she definitely plans to keep oil company heir Sebastian Reid interested . . . all the way to the altar. He's brilliant, supportive, and is turning his billion-dollar company green to make up for his ancestors' exploitation. With him, Morgan can have love, money, and the power to make the world better. And securing her future is far more important than the attractive environmental activist she suddenly has unexpected feelings for . . . But once Morgan gets a glimpse of Sebastian's secret allies and confidential emails, she's stunned to find he's only talking a good game. His company is responsible for several ecological disasters, and a chance encounter makes it clear to Morgan the lengths he'll go to stay on top. To gather enough evidence to expose him, Morgan will have to rely on her quick wits and new friends to stay one step ahead of a corporate conspiracy. But as the danger comes closer, will Morgan put herself first and run--or face down the risk, even at her cost of her life?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In de León's latest #OwnVoices tale, following Queen of Urban Prophecy (2022), a young fashion student has the chance to bag a billionaire but instead falls for a poor climate activist who needs her help to bring a shady oil tycoon to justice. With her fair skin and keen fashion sense, Morgan Faraday could pass for a New York City socialite even as she embraces her Black and Latina heritage, and she knows she must keep up the pretense of wealth if she's going to get a proposal from Sebastian, her billionaire boyfriend. Fate intervenes when she meets farm boy Kevin Templeton, who is devoted to saving the planet from environmentally destructive companies, and sparks fly. Upon discovering Sebastian's criminal behavior, she agrees to help Kevin's cause by spying on Sebastian while living in his palatial apartment. The tension ratchets up until Morgan ends up in danger and has to run for her life, like generations of women before her also fleeing threatening men. De León's sexy page-turner cleverly turns the billionaire-bachelor trope on its head."
