Ripped from the past on the brink death. Thrust into a future where freedom is taken away under the guise of protection. Secured away by the creatures that once hunted and tormented the human race.

Chapter one

“No, Ricardo, I’m not going to argue with you again!” Melissa Cassidy slid out of the taxi and offered a weak smile as the cabbie pulled her rolling suitcase out of the trunk. The smile was better than she was feeling. If she wasn’t in public she’d be tossing the phone in a trash can just to put space between her and her ex-husband. “They are your children too and all I’m asking is that you keep them for one fracking night! I’ll be back tomorrow.” She pulled out cash from her wallet and slapped it into the cab driver’s fleshy hand. “Keep the change.”

“No, I wasn’t talking to you.” Jackass. “Will you pick the boys up at school or not?” Melissa sighed heavily and rolled her eyes. “Thank you.” She slapped the phone shut and juggled the suitcase, her laptop bag which was falling down her shoulder, and her purse as she tossed the phone in the Louis Vuitton black sequined purse. Her lawyer told her to be amicable, it was all she could do not to tell the lying cheater how she really felt. She would when the divorce and custody hearing was over.

Her heels click-clacked on the cement sidewalk as she headed toward the glass doors to the airport. A portly man in bright yellow and green Bermuda shorts and white t-shirt, which did little to cover his large beer belly, whisked past her, causing her to lose her balance which rolled her ankles, she recovered without damaging the body, but not in time to save the heel of her fire-engine red Jimmy Choo.

Fantastic! What is wrong with the male half of the population lately? Seriously, hasn’t anyone heard of manners, social graces, responsibilities, or being nice?

Melissa limped to the side of the door to look at the damage to her shoe. It was ruined.

“Here, let me help you with that.” A man with a shock of dark hair, piercing blue eyes, and a dangerous goatee knelt in front of her, took her opposite foot in his hand, and ripped the heel off the sole.

“What the hell!” She hissed.

He stood up and handed her the red heel with a grin on his face. “Now you aren’t going to miss your flight.”

Melissa snatched the heel from his hand, red anger coloring her cheeks, she slapped him squarely across the jaw with her free hand. “You’re lucky I don’t scream assault on you!”

He rubbed his scruffy chin and offered a wolfish grin. “I think slapping someone is more of an act of assault than aiding a damsel in distress with killer heels.”

The man screamed sex and danger. His voice was warm and silky on her senses. His ripped jeans sat low on his hips forcing a person to look, and even imagine what delights were at the end of the happy trail. His white t-shirt was tight across his shapely chest. His black leather jacket draped around broad shoulders.

“These shoes were $1500.00.”

“I’ll pay for one of them.” He pulled out his wallet which was attached to his belt buckle with a silver chain, and passed her his card. “Just call my assistant and she’ll cut you a check.”

Melissa stared at the card, “Blake Bronson, Attorney at Law.” She couldn’t wipe the look of disbelief off her face. “You don’t look like an attorney.” He looked like a sex god and his ego matched those looks which turned her off.

“That’s because I’m on vacation.” His cocky smile spread across his face, and Melissa decided she immediately disliked this clown.

“Well, good for you.” She ripped his card in half and tossed it back into his hand. “Thanks, but no thanks.” She attempted to limp her and her pride through the automatic doors of the airport. She needed to get as far away from the infuriating man as possible, unfortunately her ears didn’t make if far enough before his chuckle reached them. Jerk! To put it mildly she was having a very bad day and Blake Bronson, Attorney at Law was just the icing on the poop cake.

* * *

Blake watched as the wickedly gorgeous, green-eyed vixen limped through the doors of the airport. He waited for the familiar whoosh of those doors to close before he allowed the chuckle to erupt from his diaphragm. It was louder than expected since he was holding it in until she was out of earshot. She was a spitfire in a curvy package, and he couldn’t help but imagine the ways he’d enjoy taming her wild ways in the bedroom.

Like all women, she was simply a fantasy. He was otherwise occupied with his so-called fiancĂ© who was pushed on him by his mentor, and one of the partners at his firm. He had no intention of marrying the woman who trapped him by lying about a supposed affair between them, one that boded a child? Yep, how she got hold of his swimmers was beyond him. He never slept with the woman and if he had his way, he never would. The whole engagement was a farce in his mind. He just needed to prove she wasn’t pregnant-at least not with his child, and he’d be free of the lying witch once and for all. Free to pick his own lady, a woman like the spunky one he just met. But until then, hands off. He didn’t need more complications, besides how would he explain his situation to her without sounding like a cheating bastard?

He’d lied about going on vacation. His trip to Hawaii was more of a working business trip with a social meet up. In his investigation of Elise, his fiancĂ©’s past, he discovered another man she was engaged to under similar circumstances, only this engagement didn’t last. The man, Martin Jacobs, ran away to Hawaii never to be heard from again. Elise’s father, Trevor Donnelly, had no desire to see the union actually happen so he let the man escape. Unfortunately, Donnelly thought Blake was perfect for his daughter and he wouldn’t have the same luck escaping the man’s clutches. Too bad the man was one of the most powerful forces in the city. Trevor Donnelly was a man you didn’t mess with if you valued your career, even your life, if the rumors were true.

Thank you for taking the time to read my sneak peek, I hope you felt the tension between the characters and all the romance fans out there can imagine how that will translate to their future relationship (inside and outside of the bedroom).
