Excerpt

 

“Why are you wearing this … rag?” I asked and leaned away.

Amber eyes met mine. “You didn’t tell me what to wear.” Tell her? I cocked my head. “Masters

choose what a woman can wear inside the household.”

I sighed and rubbed the back of my neck. She’d actually expected me to dictate what she could wear.

What had Jules done to her mind? His words echoed, “Enjoy her, she was mine.”

“Let’s go,” I said, rising and pulling her up with me. I stormed back into her room, leading her

straight into the closet. “I bought these for you.” My hand ran over the various drawers and

wardrobes filled with new clothing in all the latest styles. “That thing you wore here, burn it. Hell,

Korrigan, burn it all.” I turned to her again, but her walls reconstructed into a stonewalled facade.

“You are not my whore,” I said, cupping her face. “I don’t want one of those.”

“What do you want?” she asked, and I smiled, dropping my head to hers. “I know only what I was

trained.”

“Forget everything Jules taught you. All I want is you.” My hand smoothed over the ratty fabric to

her heart. “The real you not this frozen puppet.”

She raised a brow and parted her soft lips. I wouldn’t last the night without the walls between us.

Her touch, those lips, I craved them. How could I let her go, to even think of leaving her alone? I

dragged myself away, and told her to dress in something nice. A minute longer, lost in those lips,

and my plan would have been over.

“Why me?” she asked as I left the closet. “Petre?”

I smiled and replied, “Why not? Get dressed, gorgeous.”
