It should be terrifying, not arousing. Melina trembled as he moved. She felt cold steel slide between her bare ankles, slicing through the ropes, then between her wrists. Flexing her hands she eased into a sitting position, placing her feet tentatively on the floor. Glancing through her lashes she saw the lean, strong legs that moved into her line of vision.

She raised her eyes as her heart stopped in her chest. He was releasing his belt. Oh God. She gasped for breath as his fingers, calloused and very male, began unbuttoning his jeans. She would not show her shock and arousal by actually letting that helpless little sound free. He was watching her with a deep vein of amusement and lust, his handsome face taut with arousal and demand. Melina wanted to laugh. She almost did. It was the first time for her, she thought with disbelief.

Melina never had, but she was well aware of the fact that Maria would do it and had done it. He moved his arm, his hand lifting, fingers threading her hair, the touch sending tingles of sensation to her scalp as he held her still and moved closer. Her gaze dropped nervously, her vision filled with the dark, pulsing flesh of the head of his cock. He really thought she was going to? Thought she could? Before Melina could stop herself, she jerked back, a cry of outrage escaping her mouth as she rolled clumsily across the bed.

Shaking with nerves, she fell over the side and scrambled to her feet before staring at him across the mattress. He appeared both amused and bemused by her reaction. She was going to kill Maria. First chance she had her parents were being cut down to one daughter in truth instead of just in wishes.

Melina clenched her teeth in fury, weighing her options carefully. The look sent fear rioting through her system. Thick black brows and stormy gray eyes darkened, his lips flattened, the high cheekbones standing out prominently. You may as well forget any excuses, lies or tricks. So get used to it now. The hard curve of his lips sent a pulse of warning through her nervous system.

And I know just how to ensure that. You, sweet thing, are getting ready to learn how the other half lives. No drugs, no servants, no booze, no pampering.

Now get showered. Be dressed and ready or face the consequences. He was actually threatening her. Had set himself up as judge, jury and executioner and thought she would go along with it. You play, you pay. All rolled into one. Melina drew a hard, deep breath. Patience was a virtue, she reminded herself. Only cool, calm heads solved extreme problems. She had faced the wrath of her parents, been disowned and turned down for the last three jobs she interviewed for.

She could handle this. He looked at her closely. Not that one could see. You never know what may show up after a good hot shower. Right there, in a strange bedroom, facing the sexiest most aggravating, arrogant man she had ever laid her eyes on.

She was going to commit murder. Namely, on him. Melina bit her tongue as her eyes narrowed on his smug expression and her fists clenched at her side as she fought not to jump across the bed and claw his eyes out. If she could get her hands on Maria she would strangle her now, she thought. Now, Mr. Hardass, who thought he could reform the wrong damned woman, had kidnapped her. It was too much. Even for her. This is the end of the line, little girl. You might as well buckle down and save the lies for someone willing to believe them.

Do I look like a drug addict to you? Convince him? She blinked in outraged surprise at the suggestion. The brief touch of it on her lips was enough of a temptation, thank you very much.

She did not need to find herself lusting after this man anymore than she already did. As a matter of fact, she needed to be as far away from him as possible. Her hand had just wrapped around the doorknob, her fingers tightening on it, when a broad palm smacked the wood above her head and a hard male body pressed her tightly against the wall.

A hard, hot, muscular body. One that surrounded her, his heat pouring off his flesh in waves and wrapping around her. A male presence that smelled of long sultry nights and forbidden desires. Melina swallowed, feeling the aura of danger that suddenly emanated from him.

Neither is the fact that they would have preferred it being my heart. Now shut the hell up, get your ass in the shower and get dressed. This is a ranch. Whether you want to or not. Melina turned, staring back at him furiously, shaking with the need to smack the knowing smirk off his face as she retreated. I have a brother. Joe Angeles. At least contact him. I have to go home.

I have to take care of my cat.
