During the few weeks, the heroine learns the reason her uncle (the father from the last two novels and guy who was in an affair with competitor's wife) held such hate towards the hero was because even after buttering him up, the hero didn't vote for him to be a president for the diamond association. That one vote cost him where he made sure the hero didn't have any access that were mined by his company and she doesn't discover until later that her good uncle whispered ugly rumors to the hero's in-laws that he was a horrible person and wouldn't visit his wife when the tumor in her brain was discovered or in her final moments. Sadly, the heroine also learns that the hero didn't hire her because she had talent but it was by request of the client; although, he told the client that he didn't want to hire her a thousand times.

It a real shock for the heroine and a stab to the heart when he reveals the uncle threatened him to never show himself to the heroine and her mother because having relations with the opposition party would have looked bad for the uncle.
