Losing his heart wasn’t part of the plan…
Human rights lawyer Leonardo Duarte wants to destroy Satyanna Darling, the woman who disappeared after a weekend of earth shattering sex…along with his priceless sculpture. But when he finds her in a Brazilian prison a year later he realizes she didn’t act alone and blackmails her into helping him find the man behind the theft.
Satyanna wants to return to the US and stay out of prison, but she knows Leonardo won’t let her, unless she takes him to the man who really stole from him. As they embark on a cat and mouse game to find the man with all the answers, dodging their attraction to each other becomes even more difficult. But even while things heat up between them, secrets and mistrust threaten everything.
In this second book of the Brazilians. Leonardo is the one who is captivated. However he believes he is betrayed by the beautiful Satyanna. He couldn’t believe her audacity, she seduced him while her partner Harry stole a priceless statue. One with more sentimental value to him than monetary.
When she calls him from prison a year later, she isn’t sure what his reaction would be. All she is sure of is she wants to go home to the United States and start over. This is part of that conversation, a favorite scene.
Leonardo’s jaw tightened. She saw the muscle flicker. “He stole from me.”
She chewed on her lower lip. “He did. When he took me on this trip to Brazil, he sold me on the idea we’d spend some time together and have fun. I came along because I wanted to believe him, and I did. Even though he wasn’t the best role model, he cared for me in his way. Or so I thought.” She took a deep breath. “Will you help me get out?”
He stepped toward the bars, and she toyed with the metal. The atmosphere around her shifted, and keeping the stare proved difficult. There was a strange gleam in his eyes. Her entire body roared, her flesh a lot weaker than her resolve. There was no way in hell she would give in to that attraction again; she just had to leash her hormones.
“Under one condition. If I take you out of this place and keep you from being accused of the crime I know you committed, you are mine,” he said, his voice dropping an octave when he pronounced the last word. His rich, unforgiving Brazilian accent was like the cherry on a hot fudge sundae.
She blinked. “Yours?”
His jaw clenched. “You will help me find Harry. You will stay under my watch until I find him and get my sculpture back. If not, I guarantee you this dirty prison won’t be the worst thing that happens to you.”
