From Now Until Forever
Book One of The Gasquet Princes Series Synopsis:
For Prince Liam, families meant bad news, unwanted commitments, and the loss of his personal freedom. Love spawned white picket fences, slippers at the hearth with a wife and kids making demands, so why did those images disappear when he met Melanie Babcot? Melanie Babcot fought hard to escape the horrors of her youth and vowed to remain single and free, so when paid to protect Prince Liam from insurgents why did her personal pledge fly out the window? Teaser/Tagline Her job was to protect Prince Liam, not to marry him.
“And now, my sweet wife, it is time for me to go.”
Emotions churned in his chest. Love, betrayal, grief for the loss of a lifestyle he’d come to love. “And where do you think you are going?” The sharpness of her voice sliced through his mourning.
“It is better for you not to know.”
“And why is that?” The full weight of an Arctic freeze laced her voice.
“It’s better I go alone.” How could he reveal the reasons?
Her gaze, as cold as a glacier, challenged him to continue, and when he didn’t she thumped his chest with her fist.
“Nothing to say?” she jibed. “Well, you listen to me.”
Before he guessed her intention, she shoved him away.
“You’re right. You have to leave today, but you’re not going alone.”
