Blurb: Audrey Rodriguez has escaped her family's life styles of the rich and famous by moving to the small town of Holiday, Vermont. She settles into her new role as bookstore owner, never expecting to run into her Vegas hook-up.
Audrey was saying goodbye to a happy customer when Morgan burst through the front door, moving as fast as her seven-month-pregnant body would let her. Brynn was right behind her.
Audrey moved around the counter.
Images of one of the kids being hurt flashed through her mind.
If something happened to one of those kids Ethan would be destroyed.
Morgan grabbed her hand and pulled her toward the stairs that led to her apartment. Whatever was happening had nothing to do with the kids. Reaching the door to her apartment Morgan pushed it open, and headed for the computer she had in the corner of the apartment. Morgan pulled out the chair and sat, her fingers flying across the keyboard.
An image appeared on the screen. It took her brain a moment to recognize what she was seeing. Two well-defined bodies, sweaty, beating the crap out of each other.
Audrey squinted at the two images. There was something about the bodies. Her breath caught. She knew those bodies, intimately. Well, at least one of them.
They really were identical, with the exception of one tattoo.
Ryan had one on each shoulder. Ethan had one on his left shoulder and one across the back of his shoulders.
She'd never understood the appeal of watching two men beat the crap out of each other, but the unleashed power Ethan was using, had all of her girl parts standing up and screaming. He was sweaty, and breathing hard, and he kept going.
"Bon Dieu." She breathed.
"Um, hmm." Morgan mumbled, rubbing her stomach.
"Where did you…" she gulped as Ethan and Ryan slammed to the floor. Images of the last time Ethan had her on the floor raced through her mind.
Audrey had met the owner of the local pub, and apparently the gym Ryan worked out in.
"God bless that man."
"Ryan is so getting lucky when he gets home. I don't care what the doctor says."
She'd grown up with three very active brothers, but they'd never gone at each other like this. It was primal and erotic at the same time.
Not taking her eyes from the monitor she pulled a chair over and watched the fight. By the time Ethan and Ryan separated, her girl parts weren't just screaming. They were demanding she track him down and make him take care of them.
"Where?" She struggled to get out.
"Don't know, but I'm so glad my kids are at school." Morgan braced a hand on the desk and back of the chair and stood. "Now if you'll excuse me I'm going home and sending my husband a dirty text that is guaranteed to get him home."
A dirty text was a great idea. She pulled her phone from her pocket. Maudit, she still didn't have Ethan's cell number.
"Morgan could you…"
She checked her text messages and sure enough there was a new message from Morgan with a phone number.
She trailed behind Morgan, making sure she didn't fall down the stairs in her hurry to get home. Entering the bookstore she discovered Brynn behind the counter, happily ringing up customers and talking books.
"Brynn, do you think you could watch the store this afternoon?"
What she had in mind was going to take more than an hour. If they surfaced before she'd be surprised.
Brynn's laughter floated across the store.
"Sure. Tell Ethan he owes me one."
Audrey left her store in Brynn's capable hands and headed back upstairs. It wasn't a seduction she was planning. That was too tame. No, what she had planned was more along the lines of hard, fast and dirty. At least the first four times.
