You have ruined us all with this mad venture, Caroline! When he escapes – ’ ‘He will not escape,’ Caroline said confidently. Amabelle Levenshulme searched her face. ‘You seem very sure. ’ ‘Joseph is looking after our guest’s needs today. ’ Caroline smiled thinly, remembering his lordship’s unflattering comments as they parted. ‘Hopefully the dear Viscount will be in a better humour when I see him. Such a bad temper, especially considering he has no one but himself to blame. ’ ‘Yes,’ Lady Julia agreed with Amabelle’s question.
There’s no hurry, my lord. ’ Trajan said nothing more, allowing her free rein to do as she wished. But his swollen organ refused to be ignored, jutting hard against her thigh, demanding her attention. The memory of its girth scared her. But she was no coward, Caroline reminded herself sternly. Nor would putting off the inevitable achieve what she wanted from him. Wriggling one daring hand down between their bodies, she grasped his erection and stroked it, less afraid to touch and stroke him now that she had already seen the beast.
She drew an angry breath at his words, her resolve hardening. She would soon show him the meaning of torment! Yet how to proceed without blushing and fumbling her way like a virgin on her wedding night? ‘Close your eyes,’ she whispered. ’ ‘You want me to satisfy you? Then do as I ask and close your eyes. ’ He was still frowning, but shrugged and obediently closed his eyes. ‘I’m not one for these games, Desirée. ’ She slipped down between his knees, crouching before him with her face on a level with his groin.
