You and my sister are a thing of the past.”

Xanthos Group was planning for an ambitious large-scale film production. Once Loretta got wind of that development, she diligently ascertained that Zachary was scheduled to dine at the hotel and promptly seized the opportunity to meet him.

Since Rosalie wouldn’t come to plead with Zachary, then it was up to her!
