He’d found her.
Startled, Elizabeth Leventhal smeared her red nail polish. Perched on the edge of her leather couch, she replayed her voice mail. Just hearing Rico’s imperious tones made her shoulders hunch up and her heart pound.
“Lizzy baby, you thought you’d cut me off when you changed your number. Well, think again. I’ll talk to you anytime I want. You’re mine. Taking me to court was a huge mistake.”
She touched the bruise on her shoulder. He’d hit her just before they walked into the Dallas court for the final divorce hearing. “It wasn’t a mistake,” she muttered. How could she have been taken in by his good looks and flattery? Maybe someday she’d find someone who’d appreciate her and let her breathe. She just wanted to be free from Rico and the Elites, his mafia-like family.
