Loved By a Warrior

By:Donna Fletcher

The four brothers are you, Duncan, Bryce, and Trey, which means . . .”

She waited to see if he would finish it, and when he didn’t, she did. “One of you is the true king.”

He groaned and shook his head.

“Don’t try to deny it. I know I’m right.” Her smile grew.

“You know nothing,” he said.

“I know, but I will say nothing, or don’t you trust me?” she asked with a tinge of disappointment.

Reeve’s arms went around her. “I trust. It’s just that it’s a difficult burden to carry.”

Tara laughed. “I carried a far heavier burden.”

“Precisely, I don’t want you to carry another.”

“We carry it together as you did with mine,” she said.

He nodded. “I see the wisdom of that, and it would be nice to finally share it with someone I can trust as Duncan did with Mercy.”

“She knows who the true king is?”

“No, and neither will you,” he said. “What you do know that others don’t is what you have already surmised. One of us—me, Duncan, Bryce, or Trey—is the true king of Scotland.”

She grinned. “You mean I actually could be married to a king after all?”

“It’s possible,” he said. “Would you mind?”

“Mighty warrior or powerful king, I love you no matter.”

“That is good to know,” he said, and brushed his lips over hers. “You can say nothing of what you have learned to anyone.”

“I understand. The king must be protected at all cost,” she said. “Did you know since you were young?”

“I can discuss no more with you,” he said firmly, “for your safety as well as his.”

She nodded and then grinned. “So I could be sleeping with a king tonight after all.”

“You’re going to be doing far more than just sleeping,” Reeve said, and with his arm around her waist, he swung her off him and under him.

She gasped, startled, when she came to rest beneath him.

“But first I have something to say, I’ve been aching to say to you. You refused to let me say to you. And now I am free to say it to you.” Reeve brushed his lips across hers and whispered, “I love you, Tara. I will always love you.”

A smile burst across her face. “Tell me again.”

And in between kisses, he did.
