Rick hung up the phone and lay back on the sofa. Quietly, he drifted off only to wake a half an hour later—Mountain View was watching him.
He sat up and began to watch what was left of it. Sasha Stone’s character was busy talking animatedly to another woman.
Rick suddenly found himself intrigued, especially with this other character.
Sasha was still Sasha but this other woman was something else with her streaked, shoulder-length hair, smooth mocha skin, killer body and exotic good looks.
Since Rick had lost Jade, he hadn’t been okay. He was the type of man who despised being without a female companion and although he had not been in love with her, she provided him with emotional stability. Unfortunately, there was no way he could get her back.
Bijoux—on the other hand—was a firecracker. She was a wild card who made him feel alive as a person. He would like nothing better than to have her back in his bed again.
Suddenly, he had come up with a foolproof scheme to make Bijoux just as jealous as she’d made him. In the process, he would be able to worm his way back into her life.
