EXCERPT

The demons that haunted my nightmares were supposed to remain there. 

Yet, they had materialized into the real world and stole what was mine. There wasn’t much I feared, but my life had been turned upside down twice in recent weeks.

When Kingston alerted me that there was an incident involving Anais and her father and that his team was rushing in, my heart felt as if it were being strangled. It took precious moments for me to reach Rob and head down to the car because there was no way I would stay at my office waiting for word on what happened to Anais. Every second that passed without word made my mind race, wondering if the moment she walked out of my parents’ home would be the last time I saw her. After I was told that although James had been shot, Anais was fine and they were transporting her to a safe house, I felt as if I could breathe again.

Once it was confirmed that Kingston had Anais and she was safe, I knew that everything was going to be fine. I trusted Kingston with my life, and I knew that he would do everything in his power to make sure that Anais was okay. 

The slight tremble of my hand as I pulled at my tie told me my feelings about this were completely different. The item of clothing now felt as if it were restricting my breathing, a change from just before I entered my home. The headache that was starting to form would not deter me from what had now become my only purpose: saving her.

Someone kidnapped her and I would drag whoever did this through the bowels of hell to get her back. This was a war and there wasn’t a chance that I would lose.

I pulled my phone out again and clicked a single button to redial the number that I practically had memorized due to how many times I had seen it in the last hour, but I got the same thing every time: Anais’s voicemail. I called both Kingston’s and Carter’s phones and got the same result. Where the fuck is everyone? 

I cussed at myself for not working faster. The extra security measures that were supposed to be in place weren’t due to be installed until Monday. I’m failing her.

EXCERPT

Panic.

Silence.

Fear.

That was all I could hear and feel as I was carried somewhere. I struggled against my captor. My hands were restrained but that didn’t mean I couldn’t make his life difficult. I kicked my legs and moved my body as much as I could. Tears streamed down my cheeks, but they were absorbed by the cloth that covered my face. 

I heard something click to my right and I held my breath, wondering if someone had cocked a gun. I briefly wondered how long it would take for me to feel the piercing pain that my father endured just before he ended up in a pool of his own blood. But nothing followed the sound. I shook my head and felt the cloth that was covering a portion of my face loosen. A few more shakes and I was able to get the fabric below my eyes and I squinted. The blinding light directly over me was disorienting, but for as bright as it was, it did little to light the entire room. It took a moment for my eyes to adjust, but I didn’t know where the hell I was. 

Where is my father? Dread filled my heart as I thought back to the scene that unfolded in front of me. The memory of seeing his lifeless form just before I was kidnapped made my body turn cold. My lips trembled and my teeth chattered as fresh tears burst from my eyes. I shivered, but when I tried to bring my hand forward, I couldn’t. My hands were tied with what felt like some type of plastic. I looked behind me and found that a zip tie held my hands together. 

Fuck. My mind raced because I knew I had to get out of this. Nobody was coming to rescue me and I would have to do this myself. I took a few breaths, calming myself enough to stop the shivers. Now, Anais, what are you going to do? I knew there was no way to break out of this without hurting myself. How can I free myself? Is there a tool I can use to rip these cable ties open? I took another steadying breath and steeled myself before I examined my surroundings.

This room was foreign to me and had barely anything in it. There was a brown sofa, an outdated television sitting on a tiny stand, and I was sitting in a brown chair that had seen better days. I spotted a single closed door, but no windows or any signs that anyone actually lived or worked here. 

Panic once again rose in my throat as the events of the last couple of hours flooded my brain. My heart thumped harder in my chest, and I knew that if I didn’t get myself back under control, fear would take over again. 

I couldn’t allow that to happen because I had to get out of here. I took a deep breath and wondered if I could yell for help. Maybe my kidnappers were gone, and someone would hear me. It wasn’t the best plan, but it was all I had. I took a deep breath and started screaming. I prayed that it wasn’t for naught and that my screams wouldn’t do anything but steal my voice. 

“Help! Help! Help! Is someone there? Help me!”

“Would you shut up!” a deep voice from the corner of the room yelled.

I flinched and my mouth snapped shut. Fear returned tenfold. My heart sped up, beating a rapid drumbeat in my chest. I wasn’t alone.

EXCERPT

“Nice to see you here.” 

I whipped around to find out where the rich timbre had come from. I was startled to find Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome standing just a couple of feet away. His blue eyes shone even brighter now than they had when we’d met in my father’s office a few days ago. I looked to see if anyone was around before my gaze landed back on him. I forgot to breathe for a second as I examined him without trying to make it too obvious. I couldn’t deny that he looked good. 

“What are you doing here?” I asked. 

He said nothing but motioned for me to take a step closer. When I did, he put his hand on my lower back and led me toward a row of windows overlooking the entire city. His scent, a woodsy and spicy fragrance with a hint of something floral, crept into my nose, embraced, and consumed me. Yet there was still a sense of danger that I couldn’t pinpoint. I knew I wouldn’t be able to smell this aroma again without thinking of him. When he stopped walking, I took a step back, even though I craved the warmth his touch brought on my bare skin. It felt very intimate for someone I barely knew. 

“I can’t attend an event to support animals? I do like them, and I assume you do too.”

“Sure you can, but that doesn’t require you to stop me from getting where I want to go. Excuse me.”

I tried to remain as polite as possible as I took a step to the left to get around Damien, but he blocked my path. I moved to the right and he blocked me again.

“Move.” My voice was low and menacing. I didn’t want to cause a scene and embarrass Ellie and her parents, but I also had no problem doing so to get away from him. “Get the hell out of my way.”

“No, and the quicker you realize that no one can tell me what to do, the better.”

I rolled my eyes. “What do you want?” I asked. 

“I have a proposition for you.” 

His eyes were stuck on mine. They didn’t waver once. The blue orbs turned cold when I talked back to him. Confidence oozed off of him, making me feel intimidated by his presence, but I refused to back down. 

“Well?” I asked, waiting for him to proceed. 

“I wanted to talk to you about a deal I have with your father.” 

My eyes narrowed as I tried to figure out what he was getting at. “What type of deal?” 

He put both of his hands in his pockets and said, “I’m sure it comes as no surprise to you that Monroe Media Agency is having money troubles.” 

I could have growled at him because he dared to utter my family business’s name and spread information I hated to say was true. I glanced around once more, making sure no one was within hearing distance before I took a step closer. “This deal was the reason why you were at our office?” 

“Yes, your father owes me money after I offered to help Monroe Media Agency survive about two months ago. I gave him an opportunity to pay it back, but he couldn’t so I extended the deadline. Even with the boost Monroe Media Agency has received recently, it would take a miracle for him to pay me back everything I loaned him.” He paused. “But there’s a catch.”

“And what is that?”

“Your father has six more weeks to pay back the loan, and based on the meeting I had with him and my research, that will not happen.” He licked his lips and continued, “But I have one extra provision I want to include in this deal that, if it happens, would pay off his debt.” 

“Oh, really? And what is that?”

“You.”

I took a step back as my glare became more prominent. “Excuse me? What do you mean me?”

It was clear who was running the show here. One side of his lips curved upward. “I want you.” 

My blood turned as cold as his eyes. “Can you repeat that?”

He took a step forward, entering my personal bubble once more. “I rarely repeat myself, but I’ll make the exception just this one time. I want you.” 

I couldn’t stop the feeling that he had become my worst enemy.
