Read an Excerpt
“And just who would be pursuing us?” Hana’s eyes narrowed. “You disarmed and bound the only men who knew of our leaving.”
“Don’t be foolish,” he said, his tone on edge. “I only deterred that soldier for perhaps a half hour. He will have come around and made his situation known forthwith. And do not be mistaken…our pursuers will come by horse. As you see, my lady, we are on foot.”
Her features dropped, as did her arms. Had she not considered these things? And why should she have? Outside of this war, a lady of her beauty and grace should never know such hardship. Should never have faced such abuse…or been threatened with more violence.
It wasn’t right.
Even now, disarmed as she seemed, she appeared lost.
He longed to take the couple of steps between them and offer her the comfort she was due.
But he could not. She was not his betrothed, and he would not take such liberties. No matter how fitting the action seemed.
She glanced to the side. “I see.”
He wished she would look at him. Would this lead to one of the female hysterics he had heard tales of? What would he do then?
But she breathed in deeply and then turned her face toward him.
“Then we must go. And make haste.”
He nodded. And something warm and pleasant blossomed in the center of his chest. What was it? Admiration? Relief? Something else?
