“You want to die, Desiree?” he growled in her ear, sending an unexpected skitter of sparks down her neck.

“We’ll both die if we don’t get out of the kitchen now,” she pointed out, speaking for the first time since she’d started her attack.

“I’ve had a good life,” he said in an even tone. “Have you?”

She flung her head to the side, peeking over his arm at the microwave. Fifteen seconds had passed and sparks were flying. They didn’t have much time.

“Let me go!”

“No.” His hold tightened, and she could feel the anger spilling from him and onto her.

He stepped back, but before she could thrust the door open and run, he gripped her by the shoulder with the gunshot wound, turned her around, and slammed her back into the door.

“Do you want to die today, Desi?”

She stared at him, anger and hate warring within her. It took her a moment to realize what he was asking. That he was serious. He wanted to know if she wanted to die.

The impact of the question deflated her. Did she want to die?




She couldn’t answer him.

Her gaze strayed to the microwave, and she licked her lips.

Finally, she told him, “I don’t know.”

It was like the anger instantly melted away from him.

“Good enough,” he told her.

He kept his grip on her arm as he walked to the microwave and hit the CANCEL button. The microwave stopped, but they were still in some danger by being in proximity to it. He hurried them from the kitchen where they stood in the dining room, breathing hard.

Desi eyed him with distrust, but his return gaze was… warm.

Then, without warning, he shoved her against the wall at her back, tangled his fist in her hair and covered her lips with his.
