After his joke of a marriage came to an end when his wife ran off with a guest from his resort, Reno Albury decides one night stands are more his speed- especially if they were blonde and blue eyed like his ex-wife. So he was jaded, at least he was having fun, Until he met a blonde and blue eyed girl at his sister’s wedding he couldn’t play the fast game with.
Loraine Larson has a secret that nobody knows thanks to her father’s money and high powered friends. She’s spent years trying to forget the hell she went through in Paris. Wanting to test her new found strength, she goes back to the scene of the crime only to come back with more nightmares. She’s managed to banish his image from her mind but she can’t sleep without seeing that monster’s eyes. But she discovers a shield for that in the arms of her best friend’s brother, and now she’s determined to stay in them no matter the cost. Even if it means her life.
Loraine pulled her lips in a tight smile, drawing slow deep breathes through her nose. Was she alright? Hell no, but she wasn’t going to tell Riana that. The woman had gone through enough nightmares for Loraine to add her own onto her pile.
She nodded, pushing her hair out of her face. “Fine,” she answered breathlessly. “Why?”
Riana’s head reared back. She looked at Loraine with the ‘you’re kidding me’ look and Loraine knew she was forgetting something important.
Riana gave her a sarcastic smile and Loraine was sure whatever it was she was forgetting was about to get her a boot in the ass.
She shrugged. “Oh nothing at all. It’s just that my wedding starts in two hours and my maid of honor is still in bed!”
“Oh shit!” Loraine exclaimed jumping out of bed. “I’m so sorry. Bad hangover. I’ll be showered in five and ready for the glam squad.”
“Fine, just hurry. Guliana doesn’t like to be kept waiting,” she pulled the door shut as she left, leaving Loraine alone with the remnants of her nightmare.
She looked at the bathroom door with apprehension, instinctively wrapping her hand around her right wrist, expecting him to walk through it, her heart racing in her chest.
“This is ridiculous! He’s in Paris and you are in Rome with a security detail that rivals the President of the United States. Get a grip!” she chastised herself, stomping into the bathroom, turning the shower on and quickly getting her toiletry in order.
“Today is a great day…it has to be.” And for more than one reason.
After all the hell they’d been through, Riana and Allan deserved to have their happily ever after.
