~Excerpt~

The heat, the city hustle, and the seriousness of her 
task caused Arlette’s fury to explode. “Well, excuse me!” 
she grumbled.
“Madam!” He was expensively dressed in a dark blue 
Western suit, white shirt, and Italian tie.
She blinked, taking in the features of his rugged face 
and expertly cut hair. He reminded her of the wealthy 
Russian mafia she’d tangled with in Moscow earlier that 
year.
The man clearly didn’t like her assessing him.
Putting his hands on her shoulders, he physically 
moved her aside. “Out of my way!”
“Take your hands off me, sir!” Arlette shot back. Then 
she held her breath.
What was she doing? It was imperative she keep a low 
profile, and here she was taunting this stranger. She was 
not in a position to correct rudeness or teach manners. 
Today was the first day since JC had flown back to the 
United States that she’d ventured out of their hotel.
The chances of her being followed were strong.
Discovery could cause her death.
Only a fool would incite a public argument. Arlette 
had never been accused of being foolish.
Terror filled her eyes. Her tongue tripped over her 
words, but she got them out. “Excuse me,” she said lowly, 
then dropped her eyes, glancing to either side of her.
The dark-haired man with angry eyes sneered at her.
She wrested her shoulders from his grip. “Sorry.” She 
skirted around him, then shot down the street as if the 
devil himself was after her.
Intrigued, the man started to go after her but then 
took out his cell phone, made a call, and disappeared into 
the shop.
