Happy Hump Day, sweeties.
I have more teasers from The Essiens: Billionaires box set. This one comes from Riding Rebel which is book 3 of the series.
Tony is in protective mode.
Secrets, Scandals, and Seduction under African skies. The Essiens are the kings of African finance. A close-knit family, their father is the patriarch of a finance dynasty that ranges from retail to investment banking spanning the African continent. Yet all is not as it seems as the three brothers—Felix, Mark and Tony—soon discover when their family is rocked by secrets and scandals. Blood ties or not, family is family. If you like your book boyfriends to be tall, dark and handsome billionaires then say hello to the Essien brothers.
This box set includes:
Now for the teaser.
Tony's mouth slackened and he blinked at a rapid-fire rate. "You've got to be kidding me. This asshole hit you and you want me to leave you alone with him. Not going to happen."
Leaning back, he scrutinised Rita's face although she refused to meet his gaze. Despite the shadowed street, he made out her trembling lips. She was frightened. He could swear it. Shit. He reached for her shoulders.
She took another step backward and stepped into the beam of light from the car’s headlamps.
"Tony, please don't make it worse for me."
Her voice sounded so small and tight.
His gut tightened and he wanted to haul her back into his arms. Wanted to shield her from anything that would hurt her.
Doesn't that include you, Tony? Aren't you going to hurt her? Who is going to protect her from you?
He shook off the niggling voice in his head. The car stopped beside the building, the other side of where Freddie had parked his motorbike. Tony's bodyguard was already at attention watching the car and the occupant and providing a barrier between whoever sat in there and Tony. This formed part of his job. But today, Tony wished he didn't have that barrier because he yearned to have a go at the new arrival himself. Give the man a dose of his own medicine.
Did you enjoy the teaser? Let me know what you think in the comments.
