Excerpt

“Dammit,
Emilia. Of course, my offer still stands.”
I closed my
eyes for a moment, a smile pulling at my lips before I let go of his hand.
“First things first. How are we going to get past the Dragon Lady?”
He
chuckled. A sexy sound that reminded me Dom Moretti was in my room—and we were
alone. “Your mom? She seems like a sweet woman.”
“Yeah,
until you say no to her.” When it came to the cartel, Mom didn’t fool around.
She’d seen firsthand what they could do and how fast. No way in hell she was
letting me stay in Phoenix another night, but I had to. After all this time, I
finally had a chance to go after the asshole who killed my dad.
“Why are we
saying no to your mom?” He sat on the bed, toying with the small flower vase on
my nightstand. Nervous energy.
“Because
I’m not going with her.”
“Yes, you
are. What part of there’s a hit on you do I need to explain again?
You’re leaving with your mom. Tonight.”
“You said
you were going to help me.”
“And that’s
exactly what I’m doing. I’ll allow you a continuance. Thirty days should be
plenty of time for me to find out who Levi is. If he is what you say, I’ll nail
his ass to the wall. I promise you that.”
He sounded
so convincing. If he hadn’t used his lawyer voice, I would’ve believed him. Dom
didn’t understand who my cousin’s husband was. He wasn’t just another crook. I
kneaded the numb spot below my hip bone where his bullet went through me the
day he killed Dad. The scar he’d left behind was an IOU. And it was time he
paid.
“You know
that’s not what I need from you.” I threw a pair of jeans in the suitcase,
which took up half the bed.
“You’re
wasting time.” He adjusted his weight on the mattress, moved a few decorative
pillows out of the way, and then froze. Oh, shit. “What is this?” The
infuriating smirk on his face said he knew exactly what was in the small
lingerie bag he pulled out from under my pillow. Why didn’t I hide it better?
Oh, yeah, because never in a million years did I think Dom would end up in my
room. “Wait. Don’t answer that. What I really want to know is why is my name on
it?”
“It was a
joke.”
“How long
have you had this joke?” He pressed his lips together, his chest bouncing a
little. It was all he could do not to burst out laughing.
“Your
inflated ego must be loving this, but trust me, it’s not what you think.” I
resumed the task of folding my clothes and arranging them in my luggage. Maybe
if I pretended having a dildo with his name on it wasn’t a big deal, he’d let
it go.
“There’s a
vibrator under your pillow with my name on it. You betcha my ego is loving
this.” He bit the inside of his lip, gripping the contents of the bag. Why was
this turning me on? He planted his feet on the carpet and stood, taking his
time. His prowl was a promise that the real Dom would be a thousand
times better than the chargeable device in his hand. “You want me. Why do you
push me away?”
He pressed
his chest against the side of my arm. I couldn’t turn to face him. If I did,
we’d end up doing what we had started last night at the bar.
“I’ve spent
the last ten years in hiding because of what my dad did for a living. You saw
today what Jess is going through with her husband. I don’t want that for
myself.”
“I am not
like them.” His tone was terse and cold. “But you’re right. You have your hands
full as it is. I have no right to spring my bullshit on you. So here’s what
we’re gonna—”
Shouts came
from the other side of the house. They were faint, but they unmistakably
belonged to Jess. “My cousin is here.”
“Time’s
up.” He moved so fast around the room, I felt like I was going in slow motion.
I dropped the bathroom essentials into a toiletry bag while Dom stuffed the
rest of my clothes in the suitcase and squeezed it shut.
