     An evil hiss in her ear brought Felicity’s focus sharply back to her peril. Antony had seen her. As well as the more than one hundred people in the quarry below. All struggling to scale the wall and break through the animal barrier to come to her aid. But there was little hope they would reach her in time. Nor would the fact that there were more than a hundred witnesses stop her assailant. The frenzy of insanity had taken over.
     A dazzle of light caught the corner of Felicity’s eye. She extended her free arm in a lightning port de bras and grasped the flaring tiki torch. Thrusting the flame toward her captor, she forced him to release her arm and recoil.
     He lunged at her with a manic snarl. With split-second timing Felicity did an élancé to the side. Alnderby’s momentum, calculated to push Felicity over brink, carried him forward. Flailing to stop himself plummeting, he lashed out and grasped the hem of Felicity’s coat.
     She screamed as he pulled her toward the brink.
     The world spun. She fell to the ground, grappling for a handhold. Strong hands grasped her wrists. With a jerk that she thought would pull her arms from their sockets her rescuer pulled her back from the edge, freeing her from her captor.
     In the next moment she was engulfed in Antony’s arms.
