TITLE: Man Maid
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
Sadie has just received a phone call from her biggest rival telling her one of her employees is actually a private investigator working for him.
She could hear nothing but the pounding of her heart. Felt only the urge to hit back, to hurt like she'd been hurt. The urge grew as she stormed down the hall to the kitchen where the guys were gathered, restocking for the afternoon cleanings. She saw no one but Wyatt as he emerged from the storage room. The smile crossing his lips fell away quickly.
"You f****** lying bastart! You lied to me."
She sensed the guys shrinking back but the look on Wyatt's face made it impossible for her to stop. The brief look of shock collapsed into knowing guilt.
"You damn liar!" Her hand reached for the nearest object, a bottle of glass cleaner, and it went sailing through the air directly at his damn lying face.
"Whoa!" someone yelled as Wyatt ducked the missile before it crashed into the wall.
Josh grabbed her arm. "Stop it."
She twisted viciously out of his grasp. Any sense lost. The urge to hurt him, to strike back was overwhelming. He'd spied on her guys. Lied to them. They'd welcomed him and he lied to them. The fury boiled over and she rushed at him. He made no move to defend himself.
"You f****** spy! You don't get to quit. You're fired. Get out. Get off my property right now."
He raised his hands. "Sadie, let me explain."
The sight of her company shirt on him sparked her fury higher. She grabbed a fistful of his shirt and twisted hard enough to pull him off balance."Get this off. Take it off and get the hell out of here before I call the police."
She was screaming. She knew this. She could feel the rasp of it in her throat and hear the echoes of it. Saw the stuned faces in her peripheral vision, but she couldn't stop. The idea of Marcus Canard laughing at her enraged her. Laughing at her stupidity. Strong arms came from behind her, enclosing her.
"Let go of him." Josh's voice was calm and commanding in her ear. The anger broke and she slumped back in his arms.
