Having been burned by his father’s betrayal, real estate tycoon Trip Wakefield has no interest in love or relationships. Until he meets Arietta, a struggling blues singer. Seduced by the silken velvet of her voice, he pursues her with a single-minded purpose––Aria in his bed, at any cost. He offers her a deal: if she will be his mistress she can have anything she desires, except his heart.
