For the first time in a long time, Randa Arnold is happy beyond measure. She has the love of her husband, Linc and her paramour Matteo. After the fulfillment of a mutual sex fantasy and an unbelievable night of passion her world is turned upside down.
Lincoln never expected his wife to fall in love with another man, even though he knew that was a possibility. He loves his wife, but just can't wrap his mind around her emotionally attached to someone else, so he does the only thing he can, he forces Matteo to leave.
Forcing Matteo to leave has some unexpected consequences. Randa is despondent, yet keeps a brave face. This only intensifies Linc's sense of guilt. If that weren't enough, someone is threatening his wife. His only chance at redemption and to get to the bottom of the threat is to bring Matteo back. Only one problem, the man can't be found.
A small gasp and a clatter sounded behind him. He whirled to find wide-eyed shock on Randa’s face.
“Oh my gosh, Matteo. What happened to you? And don’t tell me nothing.”
“Matteo! You were in some kind of fight.”
“A couple thugs jumped me.” That much was true.
“For what? Were you flashing your wallet in a bad part of town?”
He grinned. He had done that once or twice, but the people who had come after him were after more than his cash. They were after the life of his family. There were secrets he knew that could destroy important people. Secrets that had the ability to keep him alive, but now people wanted him dead.
And just to prove they could get to him, there were photos of Randa and Lincoln. Not at home, thankfully, but photos of them anyway.
He sucked in air as something frigid pressed to his flesh. The ice pack eased the tenderness from his side.
She giggled. “Serves you right.” Once finished, she gained her feet and faced him. “What have you gotten yourself into now?”
