Malcolm saw the flicker of doubt in Nicole’s eyes before she lowered her gaze.
“After you walked out on me, I never thought you would willingly come anywhere near me again,” she said. “But Denise told me Celestial Productions approached her.”
Malcolm pushed away the guilt her words evoked, reminding himself he wasn’t the only one to blame for their relationship failing.
“Nicky, you pushed me away. After-”

Nicole turned toward the window. “And you’d give me everything I asked for. Allow me final approval on the screenplay, and input on the shooting locations, the cast and the final cut.”
“Yes.” Malcolm frowned at the tightness of her tone.
“Tempting.” Nicole turned back to him. “But deals with the devil usually are.”
