The Marquis’ New Clothes.
Her knees almost buckled when she saw Adam leaning against the doorframe wearing nothing but a bath linen around his waist. Riveted, she moved her gaze over his magnificent sculpted chest, each beautiful dip and ripple. He was nothing short of breathtaking. Pure masculine perfection. Mesmerized, she watched as he ran a hand through his wet dark hair, then crossed his muscled arms over that powerful chest.
Gracious God . . . As handsome as her husband had been, he’d never looked like that.
“What are you doing here, Aimee?”
Stop ogling him.
She tore her eyes away and glanced back at the armoire. Her heart plummeted the moment she realized she couldn’t remember which pile she’d stuck her hand in, or the color of the justacorps she’d been touching in the stack.
“Aimee, I asked you a question.”
Her gaze shot back to him. She quickly averted it when she got another eyeful of his glorious—mostly naked—physique.
“I came to return this.” She held her arm out, the justacorps she was holding now dangling from her grip, purposely blocking the sight of him. “I was . . . going to place it back in your armoire. I didn’t know you were here. I am sorry to have interrupted you. You’re clearly busy. I’ll go.”
She placed the justacorps down on his bed and, with her heart pounding in her throat, turned to leave.
“Come here, Aimee.”
That arrested her steps. His voice was low and so wickedly sensual. She had to swallow hard before she could speak, her insides frenzied—a dizzying combination of dread and something else she didn’t want to name.
“That’s probably not a good idea,” she said without turning around. Waving her hand in his direction behind her, she added, “You’ll want to get dressed, lest you catch a chill.”
“It’s a warm summer’s day outside and it’s quite pleasant in here. I’m not in the least bit cold.
Are you chilled, Aimee? Do you need warming—”
“No!” She winced, not intending the word to come out quite so forcefully. “No . . . I’m fine . . .
Warm enough, thank you.” Get out now or you’ll end up being warmed in ways best avoided. As it was, the sight of him was already heating her blood.
