The Remingtons: A Twist of Love by NY Times Bestselling Author Calinda B

The Remingtons: A Twist of Love 

NY Times Bestselling Author Calinda B

 Forced into rehab by lead singer Dante Vegas, the Marked Love drummer Gia “Styx” Swain wants nothing to do with sobriety—or the gorgeous, kind man she’s been assigned to be with twenty-four hours a day. Her hand forced, unable to deal with her situation, she escapes his care, heedless of the consequences.
Marco Monroe, a former ex-Marine, loves helping people get free of their addictions. He’s good at it. Plus, it helps keep his mind off the tragic accident that stole his fiancée away. Being a sober companion to the drummer of one of his favorite bands proves challenging…as well as difficult to stay mindful of his boundaries.
With everything on the line, can they possibly yield to the potent attraction between them? Or, would giving into one another destroy everything they’ve sought to create?


Marco nodded, turned, and dragged Gia from the bar, across the sticky tiles.
"Stop it!" she protested. "You're hurting me. I still have bruises."
Marco said nothing, shoving open the door.
Gia blinked again, her eyes stinging from the late morning light. She glanced at the grimy sidewalk, covered with litter. "Where'd you learn to fight like that?"
"Marines," Marco said, in clipped tones.
Her eyebrows flew up. I've got a Marine as my sober companion? Shit. I just thought him a fitness addict. Real fear made an appearance for the first time since this whole shit-storm began, like arms trying to crush her chest.
"So, what next?" she said, still tripping over her feet.
The guy had a long-legged stride.
"New plan," Marco said, approaching a shiny SUV.
A couple of teens lounged against the vehicle, arms crossed. One of them had a cigarette dangling from his lips.
"Thanks for watching the car, guys." Marco fished in his pocket, pulled out a wad of bills, and tossed it in the boys' direction.
The kid with the smoke deftly caught the crumpled bills. He removed the cigarette from his mouth and fingered the cash. When he unfolded the wad, he grinned.
"No problem.” He nodded to his companion. “Let's roll."
Marco dragged Gia toward the vehicle. He hauled open the passenger door and shoved her into the seat.
"Ouch! Quit being so rough with me," she said, noting the same new whine as yesterday.
"Apparently, you like it rough if those sleaze-bags I just tossed are any indication." He reached down for the glove box, opened it, and retrieved a set of handcuffs.
Gia's eyes grew large. "What are you going to do with those?"
"Sex games, what do you think?" Marco said, a glint in his eye.
For a fleeting second, hope flitted through her woozy brain. Might be nice.
He grabbed her wrist and fitted one of the cuffs over it. He clicked it shut. He fitted the other end over the door handle before slamming the door shut.
She tugged against her restraints. They didn’t give. She let out a sigh and slumped against the interior.
Marco climbed in the other side, blasted on the ignition, and took off.
"Where are we going?" she asked, as they headed out of Peckham.
"You'll see." His lips pressed tight.
Gia stared out the window at the London cityscape. When it yielded to rolling hills and quaint cottages, her brow furrowed.
"Where are we going?" she asked again.
The big guy stayed quiet.
"So, I get to know nothing?" she asked. She started to cross her arms at his silence, but the cuffs pulled at her wrist. She let out a huffy sigh.
He drove through a silly little town full of shops and tourists, and then headed toward the hills. He hooked a hard right into a gravel-lined driveway, leading up to an innocuous looking house at the top of one of the hills.
"B&B?" Gia said, grinning. "Is this where the sex games commence?"
