The door flung open and a
man stepped into her room. Who was he? The vaguely familiar scent of sandalwood
and pine filled her senses. Her heartbeat spiked, but she held her ground and
set her chin, determined not to show him an ounce of fear.
There was no denying his
masculinity. He was tall and his massive shoulders filled out the cloak he
wore. Shadows enveloped most of his features, but she could make out his
penetrating amber-hazel eyes through the darkness. A soft gasp escaped her.
He raised his hand and
lowered his hood. An inherent strength filled his profile. Confidence. Concern.
Rosa's breath jammed in her
throat. He looked familiar. He smelled familiar.
"Rosa, it's Michael.
"I'm not going anywhere
A frown set against his
rugged features. "I don't have time to argue -- now put on a warm
dress and cloak."
"No." She was not
going anywhere with him despite the relief in his voice.
He sighed and shut the door.
Moving with fluid grace, he crossed the room, jerked the
door to her closet open and
threw the items he wanted her to wear on her bed. "Get. Dressed."
"No." She was
determined not to budge, despite the danger outside.
"Why would you want to
stay? Clement kidnapped you."
Disconcerted, she pointedly
glanced away from his hard stare. What did he mean by kidnapped? Clement didn't
keep her behind bars and feed her only bread and water. Rosa could even go into
Brasov to shop as long as Lucien or one of the bodyguards went with her.
"I'm going to take you
back to your mother."
