COMING NEXT MONTHCHAPTER ONETHEOwas in the middle of reading a financial report when he heard the crash. Thesound catapulted through the empty corridors of the office with ear-splitting intensity.Any other person would have reacted in shock, and probably fear. After all, it was late,and even with security guards there was no building in London that could be termed fullysafe from someone determined to break and enter. Not Theo Miquel. Without botheringto arm himself with the prerequisite heavy object, dark brows knitted into an impatientfrown at being interrupted, he strode out of his plush designer office, activating theswitch that flooded the darkness outside with brilliant fluorescent light.Theo Miquel was not a man to run scared of anything, least of all a would-be intruder who was clumsy enough to signal his arrival by crashing into something.It didn’t take long for him to pinpoint the origin of the interruption, for sprawled in thecorridor was a trolley, the contents of which were scattered across the marble-tiled floor.Cleaning fluids, broom, mop—and a bucket of water which was slowly spreading alongthe tiles towards the carpeted offices on either side.As his eyes took in the chaotic sight he heard the clamour of feet pounding up the stairs,and then the security guard was there, out of breath and bristling with apologies.

There was a pulse, and she might be as pale as hell but she was breathing. She had fainted—probably pregnant. A symptom of the times. Controlling his irritation, he scooped her up, obliviousto the frantic worry pasted on the security guard’s face. He was dimly aware that hisemployees, whatever their rank, treated him with a certain amount of subservience.
