From New York Times and USA Today Best-Selling Author, Rebecca York
After a billionaire's daughter, Camille Norland, is kidnapped by a Russian mobster bent on matrimony, Decorah Security agent Nick Cassidy is her best hope of rescue. Nick's never admitted his feelings for Camille. Now he's desperate to save her before the wedding night. But can they escape from Victor Zanov's heavily fortified island paradise?
Using his special powers, Nick sneaks onto the island where Camille is being held. After killing a guard, he mingles with the guests at the wedding ceremony.
Nick drew in a quick breath as he caught sight of Camille, standing in the doorway by herself, looking achingly beautiful and vulnerable in an expensive wedding gown. The makeup she wore enhanced the perfection of her face, but makeup couldn't hide the raw nerves simmering below the surface of her polished exterior. Feeling his protective instincts surge, he flicked his gaze away, struggling to detach himself from the scene, knowing that if he didn't keep himself under strict control he could get them both killed.
She walked down the aisle alone, between the rows of folding chairs, her hands clutching a graceful bouquet and her gaze fixed straight ahead as though she was walking to her execution. When she reached the wicker archway, Zanov stepped up beside her and took her arm, the gesture speaking volumes. Maybe she flinched. Nick couldn't be sure. But Zanov leaned over and whispered something to her, and she straightened her shoulders and looked toward the man who was standing with a large leather-bound book. Not a bible, Nick decided. It looked like a loose-leaf binder.
He read the traditional marriage ceremony, pausing for the bride and groom to say, "I do."
Zanov had a ring for Camille, but apparently he didn't plan to wear one, so it wasn't a double ring ceremony. Maybe he liked to pretend he was single when he stepped out on his wife, which Nick was sure he was intending to do.
The farce of a ceremony was over all too quickly. Camille stood stiffly when Zanov kissed her. Not a passionate kiss, but just enough to let everyone know that she officially belonged to him now.
She looked shell-shocked when she turned around to face the crowd, her eyes scanning the smiling men and women as though she was hoping for rescue. Her gaze swung past the guests, and for a moment she zeroed in on Nick.
