Angel’s Seduction- Part Twenty-Two

Angel’s Seduction copyright (c) 2006 T.A. Chase

Part Twenty-Two:

A discrete cough interrupts our kisses. I start to hide my face in Greyson’s chest. But his finger under my chin stops me. I meet his eyes and he smiles at me.

“No more hiding, love. In this house, you’re safe.” Greyson brushes another kiss over my lips and helps me stand.

We turn to see the butler standing just inside the room. He gestures towards the study. Greyson nods and smile down at me.

“Come with me.” His arm encircles my waist and he escorts me to the other room.

When we enter the study, there is a stranger sitting at Greyson’s desk. The duke laughs and holds out a hand to the man.

“Roberts, I’m going to send this desk to your office. You use it more than I do.”

Roberts stands and shakes the duke’s hand. Turning, he offers me his hand as well. I stare at it. No one had ever acknowledged me without being forced to.

“Angel, this is Roberts. He’s my solicitor and I had him go over the papers your uncle brought over. Roberts, this is my Angel.” Greyson introduces us.

I shake his hand and hope he doesn’t notice how sweaty my palm is.

“I’ve checked everything and it looks all in order. Your uncle has the right to name any male his heir. It’s now up to you and what you wish to do.” Roberts must see my shock because he taps my hand with a finger. “You don’t have to make a decision at this moment or even in the next week. There is time.”

“Thank you.” It’s the only thing I can think of to say. I never thought I’d been heir to my uncle’s title. To be honest, I didn’t believe I’d live to be my father’s heir. There were moments when I thought my father would kill me but no more. Suddenly I have the chance to become an Earl.

“Your Grace, I have some papers I need to go over with you.” Roberts points to the desk.

“Of course.” Greyson heads to the desk.

I don’t know what to do. I don’t want to listen in on the duke’s private business. I move towards the door. Greyson looks up.

“You don’t have to leave, love. I don’t have any secrets from you.” Greyson gestures for me to come back to him.

I shake my head. “I think I’ll go upstairs and clean up.”

He studies me as if he isn’t sure about letting me go.

“I’m fine. I just need to be alone for a while. Things have changed and I need to think about them.” I smile to reassure him.

“Fine. Come back down when you’re finished.” He looks back down at the papers Roberts sets in front of him.

Johnson is waiting in the hall for me as I leave the room. The valet follows me up the stairs after telling the footmen to bring hot water up for a bath. It’s still morning, but I need to change and clean up. It’s my way of washing away my old life and starting a new one.

Thirty minutes later, I sink into the warm water. In the course of four hours, my life has changed a great deal. Some one loves me enough to give me new opportunities and a new world. He trusts me even though we’ve only just met. I scrub my body and seeing the marks Greyson left on my skin last night makes me blush.

For the first time I’ve felt passion. I’ve enjoyed another person’s touch. I’ve tasted someone else’s lips. I’ve found heaven with a golden god. Our relationship is one Society considers depraved, but it is one I’ve never known before. Greyson accepts me and loves me no matter what I’ve done.

I glance around the room. Dark wood forms the bed and the furniture that speaks to the masculinity of the man who sleeps here. I see the tall muscular blonde man whose golden looks caught my eye in the trappings of the room. In the blue of the silk bed cover, I see his piercing gaze. Yet sitting on the dresser is a small jade statue of an elephant, speaking of a certain whimsy in him.

I rest my head back against a rolled towel and close my eyes. Two nights ago, I was nothing, just a scapegoat for my father to abuse. In the blink of an eye, I am someone’s love. I’m first in line to one of the oldest earldoms in the country.

A hand caresses my chest, teasing my nipples. I gasp and my breath is taken by a mouth pressing against my lips. Opening my eyes, I look up into those blazing blue eyes as his tongue duels with mine. I acknowledge to myself that nothing else means anything to me except the love of this man.


P.S. I’m SExing today…come chat with me. 🙂

    I think if A really wanted to go, G would let him go and help him however he needed it. I get the feeling that this is the first rush of being in love when you want to be with the person all the time and you hate to be apart from them even for a moment.

  2. T.A.Chase says:

    lol…Jenna…don’t get too impatient on me. I had to sleep some time. 🙂

  3. Anita says:

    This was another great installment! I’m just sorry it took me all day to get a chance to read it!

    I wonder if Grey will ever be able to let Angel go. I got that he didn’t want Angel to even leave the room willingly. I guess it’s good that Angel is okay with this. That he’s okay with Grey’s love.

    Can’t wait for tomorrow! I’ll read it before I head to work!
