Chapter One

~ Tony, the Rat ~

Columbus, Ohio


Only a few days till the wedding.

Clarissa Wilford fumbled with her keys to the new condo she and her fiancé Tony would soon occupy. Exhausted after dealing with contentious accountants, insurance representatives, and stodgy hospital executives, she dumped her purse and parcels on the foyer table. The thought of soaking in the spa tub for an hour would be heaven.

The pounding thrum of a guitar dueling with the beat of a drum penetrated her senses. Tony must have forgotten to turn off the stereo. She followed the noise up the curving stairs to the master bedroom. When she reached the threshold, she stopped in shocked silence.

Standing in the doorway to the luxury condo’s master bedroom, she couldn’t think, speak, or move. Right there, on her new king-sized bed, two naked figures thrashed about, giving the mattress a thorough workout. Gradually her mind accepted what her eyes saw. Her groom-to-be was humping her best friend and maid of honor.

Red-hot fury consumed Clarissa. She took a step forward.


An icy chill replaced the heat. She turned on her heel and stumbled, but caught her balance. With an agonized yowl, she fled.
