Excerpt from Bought for the Marriage Bed (Bedded by Blackmail) by Melanie Milburne
NINA stared at her twin sister in shock. 'You surely don't mean to go through with it?'
Nadia gave her a defiant look from beneath lashes heavy with thick black mascara. 'I can't cope with a baby. Besides, I never really wanted her in the first place.'
'But Georgia is so young!' Nina protested. 'How can you possibly think of giving her away?'
'It's easy.' Nadia pouted. 'This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. If I don't take it with both hands it might never come again.'
'But she's only four months old!' Nina cried. 'Surely you owe it to Andre's memory to raise her.'
'I owe him nothing!' Nadia spat. 'You seem to be forgetting that he refused to acknowledge her as his child. He wouldn't even agree to a paternity test, no doubt because he didn't want to upset that cow of a fiancee of his.' She paced the room angrily. 'I should've known he wasn't to be trusted. The Marcello males are known for their playboy lifestyle; you have only to look at yesterday's paper to realise that.'
Nina was well aware of the photograph of Marc Marcello, Andre's older brother, in the Sydney weekend broadsheet. It was rare for a week to go past without some reference to his billionaire fast-paced fast-women lifestyle. His dark good looks had been the first thing she'd noticed when she'd opened the paper.
'Does Marc Marcello know about your intention to give his niece up for adoption?' she asked her sister.
Nadia turned back to face her. 'I wrote to his father in Italy a few weeks ago but he flatly refused to acknowledge Georgia as his granddaughter. So this time I sent a photo of her. That should set the cat among the pigeons, when he sees how like Andre she is. I felt the need to twist the knife since it's his precious son's fault my life has been stuffed up.'
