âWhat exactly do you want, Colt?â
âThatâs easy,â he said. âI want whatâs mine.â
What was his? She knew he didnât mean that he wanted her, so he was talking about her kids. Her babies.
Fear coiled around her heart and made breathing almost impossible. But where she might try to run and hide to protect herselfâto safeguard her children she was willing to walk into hell itself.
She watched him through the car window, and when he opened her door to help her out, she looked into his eyes and said, âYou canât have them.â

Thank you so much for embracing the Kings of Californiaâand me. You make it possible for me to do what I most love to do. Tell stories.
Colton King never saw the fist that slammed into his jaw.
He shook his head to clear it, then blocked the next punch before it could land. The furious man whoâd stormed into Coltâs office only moments before took a step back and ground out, âYou had that coming.â
âWhat the hell?â Colt dropped his packed duffel bag to the floor. âHad it coming?â
Colt did a fast mental review and came up empty. He didnât know this man and he couldnât think of a single other person who wanted to hit himâat the moment. His always-temporary relationships with women invariably ended amicably. Heck, even he and his twin brother, Connor, hadnât had a good argument in weeks.
Yeah, heâd had angry clients show up at the Laguna Beach, California, offices of Kingâs Extreme Adventures if they didnât find the monster waves theyâd been promised. Or if the dead manâs run on a mountain was closed due to avalanche.
Colton and Connor arranged adventure vacations for the wealthy adrenaline junkies of the world. So, sure, there had been more than a few times when a customer was mad enough to cause a scene. But not one of them had ever punched him. Before now.
So the question was, âWho the hell are you?â
âI called security!â A woman announced from the doorway.
Colt didnât even glance at Linda, the admin he and Connor shared. âThanks. Go get Connor.â
âOn it,â she said, then vanished.
âCalling security wonât change anything,â the guy who had just punched him said flatly. âYouâll still be a selfish bastard.â
âOkay,â Colt muttered. Not the first time heâd heard that, either. But a little context would be helpful. âYou want to tell me whatâs going on here?â
âThatâs what Iâd like to know.â Connor stepped into the room to take a stand beside his twin.
Colt was glad to have him there, though he could have taken the guy whoâd gotten in one lucky sucker punch. But probably not good business to have a fistfight here in the office, and having Connor around would help him leash his temper. Besides, fighting wouldnât give him the answers he wanted. âYou took your best shot. Now tell me why.â
âMy name is Robert Oaks.â
Oaks. Long-buried memories raced through Coltâs mind in a blinding rush. A ball of ice dropped into the pit of his stomach and his body went utterly still. He studied the stranger glaring at him and in those narrowed green eyes, he saw...familiarity.
The last time heâd looked into eyes like those had been nearly two years ago. At the end of a week in Vegas that should have been ordinary and instead had been...amazing. One specific memory rose up in his mind and Colt wished to hell he could wipe it away, but heâd never been able to pull that off. The morning after he and Penny Oaks had gotten married in a tacky chapel on the strip. The morning when heâd told her theyâd be getting a divorceâright before thanking her for a fun week and then leaving her in the hotel room theyâd shared.
