RIO BENEDETTI SET his even, white teeth together hard and suppressed a very
rude word as his godfather cheerfully chatted on about his plans to entertain
his unexpected guest. Beppe Sorrentino was a naïve man, trusting and
generous to a fault, not at all the sort of man to suspect his self-invited guest
of a hidden agenda. Luckily he had a godson like Rio, determined to shield
the older man from anyone trying to take him for a ride.
Rio, the billionaire veteran of many triumphant wins in the business world
and a man cynically unimpressed by women, knew he had to proceed with
discretion because Ellie Dixon had powerful, wealthy friends, and most
important, she was the sister of Polly, the current queen of Dharia—a country
which rejoiced in oil wealth. Even worse, on paper at least, Ellie was
impressive. Nobody knew that better than Rio, who had met her at his friend
Rashad’s wedding to her sister Polly. She was a beautiful, intelligent and
hard-working doctor. But saintly Dr Ellie’s profile took a fast nosedive if you
had her past history exhaustively checked. At best Rio knew her to be a thief
and a gold-digger, at worst she could be the kind of doctor who befriended
the elderly to persuade them to change their wills in her favour.
Ellie had had a disciplinary action brought against her at work after an
elderly patient had died endowing Ellie with all her worldly goods. Not
surprisingly, the old lady’s nephew had filed a complaint. But then there had
been indications that Ellie might have an unseemly lust for money earlier
than that, Rio acknowledged, thinking of the section in the investigative
report relating to her grandmother’s diamond brooch. The valuable brooch
should’ve gone to Ellie’s uncle but Ellie had somehow acquired it instead,
causing much family bitterness.
No, nothing about Ellie Dixon was straightforward, not least her surprising
approach to his godfather in a letter in which she had asked to visit because
Beppe had apparently once known her late mother.
Of course, it was equally possible that Rio himself was the actual target in
Dr Ellie’s sights, he conceded with a certain amount of cynical satisfaction at
that idea. Perhaps Ellie hadn’t realised just how very rich he was at the
wedding and, knowing where he lived, had come up with this vague
connection as an excuse to visit his godfather, Beppe. Women, after all, had
often gone to quite extraordinary lengths to try to reel him in, and he was as
slick as an eel when it came to avoiding commitment.
He refused to think about what had happened with Ellie at Rashad’s
wedding because Rio did not believe in reconstructing unpleasant past events.
With women he was very much a ‘hit it and quit it’ kind of guy. He didn’t do
serious and he didn’t do long-term. Why would he? He was thirty years old,
rich as sin and very good-looking and his female options were so many and
