He released a sound, deep inside, part growl, part acquiescence. "Ruby Jane. You are going to be the death of me."
"No. Not anymore. I've learned my lesson."
He cocked his head.
Maybe because yes, she'd said that before, but this time — "I never again want to look out into the dark sky and wonder where you are, and if you're alive. Never want to be more than a phone call away from you. Never want to think that you might…might think that I don't love you."
He blinked. Then, finally, finally, he smiled. And it was sunshine, right to her soul.
"Do you…do you still have my ring?"
He nodded and reached into the front pocket of his jeans.
How it remained untarnished, she hadn't a clue, but there it was, still gorgeous. A beautiful vintage two carat white gold solitaire, with tiny diamonds in the cradle.
"Just put it on your finger and keep it there."
"You're so bossy." But she held out her hand for him to put it on her finger.
"I should put a tracker in it."
She looked at him. "No need. I'm not going anywhere."
He smiled again, a softness in his eyes that made her want to weep. "Not without me, you're not."
The woman he loves has vanished…
When RJ Marshall said she'd be right back, York should have objected. No, he wasn't going to let her run off to Berlin, even if it was to save a little girl.
Only problem—she'd told him this while he was unconscious. So really, it doesn't count, and it's not his fault that she's gone missing. And, he didn't know why he expected RJ not to chase danger into trouble. But now he has to find her before criminal mastermind Alan Martin tracks her down.
She's in over her head…
RJ didn't mean to leave York behind, but she's on a mission to save a little girl caught in the crossfire of Martin's terrorist plot. Now, she'll have to find the girl and keep her safe while leaving clues for York to follow her.
But who will catch up to her first—York, or the man with a vendetta?
