Ahhh The Iron Duke. I do like my book men tall, dark, and solid and Rhys is all of that and more. I love his confidence, his strength, and his persistence. Not to mention the man solid and fine.
- Broad through the shoulders
- Hawkish nose
- Large hands with long fingers and square nails
- Dark hair
- Short dark eyelashes
- Made of iron
- Former Pirate Captain
“You, Me. Until we return to London. There will be no ruin to you or your family. I’ll kiss you until we can’t breathe. I’ll strip you naked and taste every inch of you. Then I’ll shag you until neither of us can see straight. And we’ll have had enough of each other.”
She stared at him, lips parted. A long second passed before she shook her head. “None is enough.”
He looked her over. Her cheeks had flushed. Her breathing hadn’t settled. “Are you certain of that, inspector?”
“Yes.” She stood. “Let us go now, sir.”
“I’ll never be done with you!” His palms slammed to the door on either side of her head. Teeth clenched, he pushed his face to hers. “I’ll never be done –”
He broke off, eyes widening. His gaze searched her face, settled on her trembling lips.
Softly, he said, “Why would you care Mina? Why would you care if I’m done with you? Why does that frighten you?”
She closed her eyes. His palm cupped her cheek, and Mina knew he felt her shaking. “Let me go.”
“I can’t.” Warm lips caressed her temple. “I can’t.”
“You did before.”
“No. Even then, I didn’t. I was only waiting to take you back.”
He cupped her face in his hands, made her meet his gaze. Solemnly, he said, “I heard you say that when two people love each other, they fight through everything together. Every doubt, every challenge, every pain. Fight with me, Mina. Please. You are the only one for me, for as long as I live. And if you love me, fight with me.”
Her heart filled. Overwhelmed, she battled tears again. “I do.”
“I love you.”
Hi mouth came down over hers, hard and searching. Sealing this agreement between them–a bond as unbreakable as he was.
My Iron Duke is being represented by Andy Whitfield who was the star of Spartacus: Blood and Sand. I was saddened to find out that Andy lost his battle with cancer last September. So three sheers for Andy, may he Rest in Peace.
