…and the troublesome female who tempts him to distraction at every turn. My second torrid romance takes place in a fictional small town in Maine.  I’m giving away a signed copy of this book, too. The answer can be found on the excerpt page on my website.  Email the answer to me at: tory.richards@yahoo.com to be entered into a drawing.

Why did Maggie return home?

Never before posted excerpt-

“You bitch! I’ll kill you!” His eyes were wild when he pulled his hand back to look at the blood covering it. He drew his lips back in a grimace.

She stared at the crimson tide streaming down his face, too dazed to do anything else. Until his words finally sank in and the meaning behind them. Maggie had no doubt David would do exactly what he threatened. She turned to run, not having anywhere to run to. She didn’t get far before he was upon her again.

 She screamed.

 “Open the door!”

 That soWickedDesire_Lg_Web8-22unded like Matt! Her gaze flew to the door and she began to struggle like a mad woman, biting and kicking and clawing like never before, trying desperately to reach the door. David’s brutal hands swung her around just as she reached for the fan on top of the TV. She hit him in the face with it. It gained her enough freedom to make it to the door.

In her haste to let Matt in she forgot about the security chain. She yanked the door open but the chain kept it from opening all the way. Maggie caught a brief glimpse of him on the other side before David slammed the door shut in her face. He grabbed her and threw her halfway across the room. She would have been okay if Dammit hadn’t run underneath her feet, tripping her. Maggi stumbled to the floor, almost crushing the small dog as she screeched out from under her in the nick of time. David made his way to where she landed, and all she could do was lay there and look up at him.

Suddenly the door to the apartment crashed open, slamming against the wall with a noise that vibrated throughout the building. Maggie’s eyes sought Matt’s before returning to her ex-husband. David swung around but he was no match for the enraged giant facing him. One well-aimed punch sent him crashing into the wall and crumbling to the floor.

It was over before it began.
