by Kate Hill

BOOK SUMMARY:  Torn from her beloved convent home, Delia is forced to marry Areus of Lortia. The contract states she must deliver an heir within a year or the marriage can be annulled. Delia vows to control her fate by ensuring there will be no child--until she is mesmerized by Areus, the proud, virile warrior king.
    Areus agrees to marry Delia to gain her father's army to continue his fight against Hypatios, the mad prince of Zaltana. He doesn't expect to fall in love with a convent-reared mouse, but from the first, Delia rouses his lust and touches his heart.
     Their life together hangs in the balance as the war with Zaltana advances and Areus discovers Hypatios is far more than just his sworn enemy.


Areus stepped into the tub and sank into the water. It was almost too hot to be comfortable. Almost. After a moment his body acclimated to the temperature and he relaxed. The water wasn’t very deep, but it still lapped at the bandage covering his middle.

“I’ll change this later,” Delia said, running a fingertip over the bandage before she stepped behind him.

She picked up a hand towel resting on the edge of the tub and dipped it into the water. She ran the cloth over his shoulders and back.

“Tonight I’ll be your servant, sire.” She slid her arms around his neck and brushed her soft cheek against his. It felt so good. He loved being close to her like this.

Delia kissed his cheek. She took his hand and raised his arm so she could wash under it, then she washed under the other. She bathed his chest, then placed the cloth aside and massaged his shoulders and the back of his neck.

Areus groaned. He could grow accustomed to this.

Closing his eyes, he lowered his chin to his chest. Her small hands were surprisingly strong. She massaged away the tension that seemed a constant part of him.

“I love touching you,” she said, stroking the back of his neck. “I never thought I’d love touching someone like this.”

“I knew I would.” He raised his head to look at her over his shoulder. “From the moment I saw you. Come here.”

He turned and grasped her beneath her arms to pull her into the tub.

Delia smiled and braced her hands against his hard, water-slicked shoulders.

Finally they sat facing each other in the tub of warm water. Delia’s legs were bent, her knees drawn toward her chest. There wasn’t much room, so he extended his legs a bit and spread them. He took her hand and tugged her close.

She rested her back against his chest and he wrapped his arms around her, kissing her hair.

“I used to think about what it might be like to be with a man,” she said. “Never thought it would actually happen and I never thought I’d be sharing a bath with one--even if he was my husband.”

“This is a perfect night,” he admitted.

“I wanted you to like it.” She turned her head to meet his gaze.

“I do.” Areus nuzzled her neck.♥
