The sultry woman who lay in his bed didn’t fool him. Gavin knew her for what she really was – one of the Fae. He smiled to himself. Perhaps she’d heard of his legendary prowess and wished to test him. From the look of her, he’d passed.
“Maybe I'll stay here for a while.” Her voice was smooth velvet, issued from lips that moments ago had begged him for more.
“I dinna think so. My betrothed will arrive in a fortnight and it wouldna look right to still have you lying in my bed, now would it?”
It didn’t matter that he’d never even met the girl. A contract marriage, arranged by his father many years ago, was still sacred and he intended to be faithful…no matter how badly it turned out.
