“Be still, Hope. Otherwise I may drop you.” But it wasn’t censure in his voice, more amusement.
He thought carrying her was amusing? How on earth would she explain this to her parents, if they caught wind of it? Shame burnt through her. “Please put me down.” She stopped struggling, hoping he would accede, and she felt her face flame with embarrassment. Hope grasped him around the neck, pulling herself up slightly, so that she was at least able to cast furtive looks around her, about to breathe a sigh of relief, when she saw a padded slipper appear on the staircase straight ahead, followed by a leg and a dressing gown.
She closed her eyes. She knew those slippers and that dressing gown with the pink feather edging. She had actually bought it for her sister-in-law last Christmas. Hope sighed. Nothing in her life at this point was going to be easy.
Xavier is the new master of the nest, ready to welcome home the daughter of the house who he has never met. He’s unprepared for the woman who steals his breath and enchants him.
Now Hope and Xavier must fight for lives and those of the innocents. After all, it is only by overcoming the rogues that they will have a chance of a timeless future together. But will it be in time?
