Tales of the Forbidden - Book Four
Darius Alistair never thought he would live the happily ever after life. Privately, he lusted after the one girl that could destroy all of his friendships, but like most things in his life, Darius was willing to lose everything to have this one woman. Makayla!
Makayla Tabor wants nothing more in her life than to be stable and enjoy the comforts of home, but her brother in law has other plans and keeps her from the only home she's ever known. On a rare visit, she gets one of many shocks in her life. She's taken to the 'Compound'.
Now married to one of the four rogues of Cane, she must deal with her feelings and a past that Darius has kept hidden far too long. But as much as he might try to shield her from things left buried, he is unable to shield her from his lust, no matter how forbidden it might be.
Take it slow! Taking a deep breath, he looked around the room. “So what do you think of the room? Kind of nice.”
“Small talk?” she huffed. “You’ve got to be kidding me.”
“Hungry?” He turned to the food spread out on the table. Sitting down, lounging back on the pillows, he pulled out the bottle of wine chilling in a bucket of ice and read the label. “Not bad, but I’ve got better in my stock.”
“This is ridiculous.” Makayla shook her head and went to the door.
“We’re locked in for the night,” he told her, popping the cork, pouring the liquid in the two glasses. “Which by now you should know.”
“This is such bull.”
“Come over here and have something to eat. I’m sure what they tried to feed you today sucked.” Darius began serving the food, waiting for her to join him. “Oh wait, you didn’t eat what they tried to feed you today, so you must be hungry. Come.” He patted a spot next to him and smiled up at her. “You’re going to need all the energy you can get tonight.”
“What’s your name again?”
“Yeah, well, um Darius, I think this little game of yours has gone on long enough. So why don’t you just call that woman who brought me here and have her let me go about my merry old way and you can keep your nuts intact. Otherwise, Dane is going to cut them off and feed them to you and I’m going to watch with enjoyment.”
Darius took a big drink, nodded and stood up. “Well I guess being nice at the moment isn’t going to work like I thought. So let’s try a more aggressive approach.”
He went over to her, only to have Makayla back away quickly. It didn’t stop him from charging her, bending over and picking her up, slinging her over his shoulder.
“What the hell do you think you’re doing?” she cried out, twisting her body and pushing up on his shoulder.
