“I don’t know how to act with you. What are we supposed to do?” Holly asked her protector.

Jack’s gray eyes sparkled as he grinned. Her heart fluttered. The transformation was amazing. His whole face lit up and his harsh features turned devastatingly handsome. She tried to focus on what he was saying.

“We’re supposed to be married. So act like a newlywed. Oh, by the way. I put my stuff in the guest room, but I’ll be sleeping with you,” Jack said.

“You’ll what?” Holly croaked.

Holly nodded slowly. She felt paralyzed in place. A vision of Jack in her bed, tangled in her sheets rose before her eyes. She realized she was still nodding, and stopped.

“Don’t worry,” he said. “I’ll stay on my side of the bed. I’m an honorable man….”
