Lillian Merriweather hadn't planned to get caught in a blizzard while
traveling the English countryside. Nor had she planned on finding refuge
in a house full of secrets. But Lillian has secrets of her own. And
what she's running from is not far behind...
There were several moments Jeremy North suspected he suffered
hallucinations. Most of those times had been when he had first begun to
change into the beast during the full moon. And now, as he answered the
knocking he had at first imagined to be the pounding in his skull, he
wondered if the brandy he had been drinking this evening was perhaps
tainted. He could not quite believe his eyes.
A woman stood on his doorstep, covered in a layer of snow, her bright
blue eyes silently pleading to him just before her eyelids fluttered
closed, and she crumpled at his feet. He managed to set the candle down
safely on a table in time to catch her before she cracked her head on
the stone beneath her. He lifted her effortlessly into his arms, brought
her into the house, slamming the door closed with his foot. He hurried
into the library with his unexpected guest. North had returned earlier
seeking the warm oblivion of yet another glass of brandy. He grimaced at
the memory of countless other sleep- EPUBdeprived nights spent in much the
same way. Sans an unconscious woman, however.
He placed the bundled woman onto the sofa, ignoring the fact that the
snow was bound to create a water stain on the fabric once it melted. He
leaned over her, pushing the curly brown strands of wet hair off her
face and checked to see if she still breathed. Satisfied when he felt
her breath on his hand, he went back to the corridor.
"Amery!" He roared.
Turning back to the woman on his sofa, he again felt the necessity to
blink his eyes, wondering if they played a trick with his senses. He lit
more candles to brighten the room and added more wood to the fire. Then
he walked back to the woman and knelt at her side. He found her hand
dangling over the edge of the sofa and took it gently in his, the digits
frozen stiff. He inhaled a gasp. He cupped both of his hands
instinctively around hers, hoping to lend her his warmth.
He heard the shuffle from the hallway and Amery's muttering, then a noisy yawn.
"Bloody hell! What is this?" Amery bellowed from the doorway.
North ignored the query. "We need blankets," he said, instead. "She's frozen through."
Amery nodded and left.
A muffled groan from behind drew his attention, and he turned to see the
woman's eyelids flutter open. He inhaled sharply as her bright blue
gaze fell upon him.
She studied him for a moment.
And then, she smiled. Like this book? Read online this: Woman Defamed and Woman Defended, Soul of a Witch (Detective Marcella Witch's series, book 11).
