“Stay away from me, Lady.”
Her eyes met mine, daring her to push back. “What? I didn’t mean—”
“I’m not the man you think I am. I’m an asshole with more control issues than they can diagnose. I’m not a nice guy.”
“But I’m safe,” she whispered in a voice so fragile, it chipped at my resolve to stay away for her sake.

“I don’t know how to be gentle, Lady,” I growled.
Her breath hitched at the minuscule squeeze of my fingers around her throat.
“What if I don’t want gentle?” she breathed.
“What do you want?”
Light brown brows pulled together in thought, but her hazel eyes stayed locked with mine. “You.”
