The women he’s been around are all like Jane and Elizabeth. Refined, posh, and perfect. Contained. I’m just the opposite. Well, I like to think of myself as somewhat refined. Posh? Not so much. Contained? My dad, Erik, Orie, the list is endless, would laugh in my face if I tried to get away with that adjective to describe myself.
“I can see every thought on your face. It’s fascinating,” Clayton says as he studies my reactions.
“I don’t know how to hide who I am or what I feel.”
“I don’t want you to.”
I feel myself flushing. He looks like he wants to kiss me again.
“You’re dangerous,” I blurt out.
Clayton’s eyes widen at my words but he doesn’t deny them.
“I am. I’m glad you know it.”
He’s admitting it. He’s actually warning me. Oh crap. Does this mean you’re going to break my heart? I’m suddenly overcome with fear. This is a man who could destroy me. Break me into a million pieces, irrevocably ruin me for a long time.
