CLAIMED BY THE ROGUE
by Hope Tarr
He crossed an ocean to find her. His secret could prevent him from claiming her heart...
Robert locked his gaze upon Phoebe's. “Were you my wife, there would be no separate bedchambers and skulking through some creaky adjoining dressing closet in the middle of the night. I’d keep you by me, in my bed, and make love to you every morning and every night, and when we were finally too exhausted to do aught but sleep, I’d clasp you to my breast and hold you so close that it would be hard to know where I ended and you began.”
The bloom of heat between Phoebe's thighs confirmed she’d slipped back into dangerous territory, once more in his thrall and separated from both her morals and sound sense. Retreating, she shook her head. “That will serve.”
“Will it?” He slid his gaze over her, reminding her of the matronly nightcap she wore, along with what Belinda never failed to assure her was her least flattering night rail. A faint smile lifted his lips. “Do you always go to bed so…armored?”
She forced her chin up. “Proper Englishwomen always dress for bed.”
To her chagrin, he chuckled. “The bedchamber is the very last place a woman should worry about being proper.”♥
