Sample text

Nay, lady. ” Elise stopped, and her face went ashen again. ” “Aye, we will. But not tonight. I would not be 50 MARY REED MCCALL able to complete our joining—” He broke off, uncertain how much he needed to say to her about the intimate act between men and women. He cleared his throat. ” “No, please,” she grasped his arm. “I do not care. ” She looked stricken, even more fearful than she’d looked when she’d thought him about to strike her. “Sweet Jesu,” she whispered, as if the words were wrenched involuntarily from her, “If Eduard were to discover that ’tis not in truth .

Her voice pierced the distance, its tone edged with a kind of quiet panic. ” she whispered. “Please forgive me. ’Tis only that I wasn’t sure—” Concerned, Gray turned to face her, and with a sobbed intake of breath, she shrank away from him, half-raising her hand as if to ward off a blow. He felt as if it was he who’d been hit. Taking several steps toward her, he gripped her shoulders and forced her to look at him. ” Elise stared up at him, eyes wide, luminously blue with tears that threatened to spill over at any 40 MARY REED MCCALL moment.

Eduard’s gaze was flat, and the thought flashed through Catherine’s mind, then, of telling her husband the whole truth, so that Eduard could be detained and prevented from harming her children once the lie was revealed. But at that moment, Eduard lifted a tiny roasted starling from a platter on the table and snapped the delicate bird’s head from its neck. Then he blinked at her and licked his fingers. Catherine’s idea fizzled to nothingness, doused by waves of fear. Eduard was not stupid. Even if Gray believed her tale of plots to kill him, her children would be doomed.
