Billionaire Jonas Drake was living the life every man wanted; rich, empowered, and free of all responsibilities. After taking over his father's shipping industry, his only desire is to spend time with his friends while enjoying his status and wealth.
Walter Drake always knew his son was a little different and Jonas has never proven himself as a man in his father's eyes. His beloved boy had grown into a young man and had never shown the slightest interest in the fairer sex. Jonas's father decides to solve this dilemma himself; by purchasing a wife for his son at a private auction house.
Bought and paid for, Alicia Lemon finds herself in a tenuous situation. After both of her roommates abandon her and out of options, she sells herself into a yearlong contract of marriage. Thinking she was purchased by an elderly man as a trophy wife, she soon finds out she is instead destined to be the bride of the winner's playboy son. While Jonas first appears to have nothing but indifference for women, Alicia finds there are hidden desires just waiting to be set free.
