EXCERPT:

Kissing her had been a mistake. Apollo didn’t know if he was going to be able to talk to her—to look at her—without recalling that earth-moving kiss. And he couldn’t afford to be distracted. There was too much at stake.

He stepped away. “That shouldn’t have happened.”

Popi’s gaze darkened. “The song has ended. Now I want answers. Who are you?”

“Do you really not recognize me?”

“No.” She studied his face. “Why should I know you? Are you famous?”

“In a manner of speaking.” He’d been fodder for the tabloids off and on his whole life. Billionaire heir spotted here…spotted there. “I’m Apollo Drakos.”

Her mouth gaped. Her eyes reflected the rampant thoughts racing through her mind. It took her a moment to press her glossy lips together.

Popi’s gaze narrowed. “Where have you been? We tried to reach you right after the accident, but no one knew what had happened to you.”

“It doesn’t matter—”

“Of course it matters.” Her voice assumed an accusatory tone. “You should have been here.”

His muscles tensed as yet another person heaped guilt on him. He deserved the condemnation and accusations, but there was nothing she could say that he hadn’t already said to himself.

“I’m here now.”

“Then you know about the accident and that we had the funeral—”

“I know all of it. My attorney filled me in.”

Her gaze searched his. “Then what are you doing here on the island?”

“I’m here to claim the Drakos heir.”
