Description : PURCHASED BY THE BILLIONAIRE
Kayla’s features paled as consternation meshed with disbelief, then magnified into a sense of dread.
‘You think it was easy for me to go to Duardo Alvarez and beg?’ Defensive anger rose to the surface, and something else…rage.
Jacob’s words fell with hammer-like pain, and for a few brief seconds she hovered between retaliatory anger and despair.
The mention of his name was enough to send ice slithering down the length of her spine.
Bad boy made good, now billionaire entrepreneur with homes in several major cities around the world.
Her ex-husband…and the last person on earth likely to help her, or her brother.
‘Why in hell would you do that?’
‘I had no choice!’ Jacob’s expression revealed a torment that twisted her stomach muscles into a painful ball.
Oh, dear God.
The last time she’d seen her ex-husband had been at her father’s funeral. A deeply sorrowful occasion with few genuine mourners, several curiosity-seekers…and she’d been too stunned with shocked grief to do anything other than act on autopilot.
She hadn’t had contact with Duardo since. Didn’t want any.
‘Dammit, Jacob! How could you?’
He didn’t answer. But then he had no need.
