The following snippet is from Millwright's Daughter,
one of nine novellas in the
Under a Mulberry Moon anthology, now available.
Kit stepped next to Eliza to whisper in her ear. “What are you doing here? Are you aware of what it will do you your reputation if you are caught in a place like this with a man?”
Eliza’s soft laugh sounded closer than Kit expected. “I know, but I need to talk to you privately. I discovered this supply closet a few months ago when I was looking for the indoor necessary. I stumbled upon a couple entangled in each other’s arms, so I knew this would work.”
The thought of being entangled in Eliza’s arms sent all other thoughts flying from his head. He closed his eyes as he sensed her lean her mouth closer to his ear. However, as she continued, the tone in her whisper grew serious. “Mr. Halsey, I need help. Can I trust you?”
Right then, Kit did not want to be trustworthy. He wanted to kiss senseless the woman standing so close to him their bodies touched in several places. However, he had a job to do. His sense of integrity warned him to not take unfair advantage of someone who would not have put herself in this position unless she felt it urgent. “You can trust me, Eliza. However, in the future, you would be wise to determine if a man is trustworthy before you place yourself within the confines of a dark closet with him. Some men will take advantage.”
