"... I'm the typical person that most of these labels are targeting. I am young, social and know the scene." He nodded. "I think that has given me a good ear for trends."

Well, this is the first book I've read from the Devonshire Heirs and luckily I got the right one. Three half-brothers decide to take up their unknown and soon-to-die father's will and race for becoming the CEO in his company. Henry Devonshire takes the music department and he finds himshelf charmed by the dazzling personality of his secretary. He decides to pursuit her and a romance between them starts. After all, he is a believer in team work....

The first Devonshire heir' book.
