I knew that you hated myfamily, but I never thought it ran this deep. Tell me what I‟ve got to do to get itback.”Troy Christian leaned forward in his seat and drummed his fingers on theglossy surface of his desk. It didn‟t even take twenty-four hours before she came tohim. He knew that she would once she found out what he had done to her family.“Headley, I don‟t why you‟re here. You know that your father signed thosepapers in good faith and I can‟t do anything about it. Now, I think you should leave before you say something that can‟t be taken back.” Storming across the room, Headley Rose slammed her purse down on thedesk and glared at him so hard that he almost flinched in his chair, but stopped inthe nick of time.“I could care less if I said something to hurt your feelings. You‟re so damncold that you probably have a hole where your heart should be. My father worked himself into that hospital bed for that ranch and now you‟re taking it awaywithout a second thought.” 7 Troy brushed off Headley‟s comment without blinking an eye. Heunderstood that the young woman was mad at him, but she had no right to be.Instead of running off and trying to be a fashion designer in New York, sheshould have stayed and helped her father with their business.“Douglas came to me for help and I helped him. Why should I be blamed because he couldn‟t make the payments? I‟m a businessman and I have a right totake what‟s mine.” Troy commented watching as Headley‟s gorgeous eyesdarkened in anger.“You‟re a bastard. I hope you know that. You‟ve so much money that youcould give millions away and not even feel it. My dad kept that place going aftermom died so he wouldn‟t lose his mind. You even came to the funeral and offered your support. Now, I see it was all part of your plan.” “What plan?” Troy asked, not liking the turn that this conservation wastaking.“For years the men in your f amily have been pissed that my father got theland you wanted. In fact, they tried trying various ways to get it from him. So, youbefriended my dad and made him think you were on his side until the right
timecame along to stab him in the back. But I promise you, this isn‟t going to work.” 8 “God, for all I know my father didn‟t have a heart attack while he wasrepairing that fence. You could have done something to him,” Headley accused shocking the hell out of him. Jumping up from his seat, Troy raced around his desk to grab Headley bythe arm jerking her to his body.“Listen here, little girl,” he growled. “I don‟t try to kill people to get what Iwant. I was the one who found Douglas out there and got him to the hospital. If itwasn‟t for me, your father would be dead.” “That‟s what you say. How do I know it isn‟t a lie? I remember quite clearlybefore I left that you told my father you wouldn‟t let him sell that property toanyone but you, Mr. Christian.”“You shouldn‟t accuse me of doing something that you‟ve no proof of. I‟mtired of telling you that you‟re wrong. Furthermore, you might not like whathappens if you keep it up.” Titling her head back, Headley looked him in directly in the eye withoutflinching. “What can you do to me? I‟m not scared of you.” I could kiss the hell out of you like I’ve wanted to do since you walked into this office,Troythought before let go of Headley‟s arm and stepped back.“Nothing, just go to the hospital and check on Douglas. I‟ll talk to you laterabout a way to work something out about the payments.” 9 Headley picked her purse up off the desktop and stared at him. “I‟m notgoing to set up any payment arrangements with you. I‟ll find a way to have myfather‟s debt paid off before he gets out of the hospital at the end of the month,”she promised then headed towards the door.He didn‟t like the sound of that. Headley had always been headstrong and he was worried about what she would do to get the money. “You‟re father owes meclose to fifty thousand dollars. There‟s no way you can get that paid off in time.”“I bet I can,” Headley promised before she stormed out the door, slamming itbehind her.Headley made herself not think about Troy again until she came back fromthe hospital and was in her old room back at the ranch.How in the hell could he still be so damn gorgeous after so many years?His jet blackhair was still thick and full despite the fact that he was nearly thirty-two yearsold. In addition, the gray hairs that were streaked throughout only made himsexier and more desirable.What was wrong with her, still lusting after the man who wanted to ruinwhat was the life of her family business? Rose Ranch had been the best in its timeuntil Troy‟s family moved into town when she was young. 10 She would never forget how the older girls in town constantly found waysto draw Troy‟s piercing blue eyes in their direction. If she remembered correctly,he was about twenty-two when they moved to the land across from hers.She was still in high school and secretly lusted for him herself, but never leton to any of her friends.Why would she?Troy was already six years older than herwith had a line of willingly girls waiting for him.In ways, evenback then, her father and his family weren‟t getting along atall. Troy‟s dad didn‟t like having competition for his ranch and tried several timesto buy theirs, but her father always told them no. It wasn‟t for sale. Things only got worse when her mother died during childbirth along withher baby brother. He father went into a deep depression and never fully came outof it.She had sat beside him at the funeral, in shock, trying to stay strong whilehe cried. A light touch on her leg had made her look up and to find Troy squattingdown in front of her with a sad look on his face. She was so taken back all shecould do was stare at him. He had never shown her genuine concern finally replied He‟s taking all any attention until that day.“Are you okay?” He asked with in his deep voice. “Can Ihelp you with anything?” “No,” she when she gained her voice. “I‟m fine, but I‟mworried about Dad. of this very hard.”
