“You want me.” His eyes were cold, confident.

The truth of that statement hit home with Charity. It had been her mistake to assume her infatuation with him had been a girlish inclination, something that would vanish with the clarity and logic that came with experience and adulthood. She wanted him. Her desire had not dampened in all the years that had passed.

Her agitation had made her oblivious to the fact that he was not at the end of his chains and in the space of a heartbeat, he held her pinned against the wall of the stall between the iron rings that held his chains. Each of his hands held a wrist in an unforgiving grip while his body held hers immobile.

“You’re a horrible captor, darling.” His whisper caressed her cheek.
