A snip from Misfortune of Birth [Always Cambridge, 3]
She'd been living among them. Victor discovers the enemy within...
“If you were going to hurt me, you would have already done it.” She dismissed me with a wave of her hand.
“Don’t be so sure. I may not be Lorenzo or Vitor, but don’t underestimate me.”
“And don’t underestimate me. I may not be here on my own, but I’m still a Cambridge.” She seemed every bit the part at the moment. Her sweet innocent fresh faced expression disappeared and I was greeted with the steely-eyed determination of the vengeance-wielding woman she’d become. She was angry, she was resolute and she had the upper hand, because she knew as well as I did, that I’d let her walk out of there.
Obviously uncomfortable, she began to fasten her blouse struggling with the buttons. Her hands shook. The only outward clue she might not be as confident as she would have me believe.
I walked over to her and took hold of the lapels roughly. Her breasts rose and fell rapidly at my nearness, whether through fear or residual desire, I wasn’t sure. I was shocked to realize that even after all this, I would rather be removing her clothes than helping her put them back on. My head was near-bursting, my senses buzzed. I could smell her. I could still taste her. I still wanted her more than I’d ever wanted anything. I pushed her away from me for a second time. “Go.”
“Go?” She blinked rapidly. “You’re just going to let me leave?”
I picked up her forgotten coat from the floor and handed it to her. My mind flashed back. Could it have only been a few hours ago that I had coaxed her out of it? I’d been so turned on with anticipation. Excitement. How things had changed.
The Always Cambridge Series chronicles the life of Holly Cambridge through her tumultuous childhood, violent teen years, into adulthood, and the consequences that stem from being the daughter of mob boss, Bill Cambridge.
Caught up in a bitter blood feud with the rival Mayhue family and unable to bear the violence that claimed her mother, Holly sets out to right her father's wrongs. But instead she embarks on an epic journey of sex, love, loss, tragedy and life-altering choices that not only impact her life but that of her beloved bodyguard, Randy Phillips; unsuspecting Federal Agent, Alex Orton; and surprisingly of all, Victor Mayhue, a member of the reviled Mayhue clan.
Can Holly distance herself and the ones she loves, from the violence and corruption she abhors, or will she discover a truth she's feared all along ... Mob life is forever!
