- I somehow manage to swallow down the growl building in my chest when Cedric stares down at my wife like she is the very reason for his existence. I want to rip that smile off his face, Killian wants me to rip his head off, but I know that isn’t the way to get into Lira’s good graces.
- “While my Delta takes my wife to rest in our room, why don’t you and I take a moment to discuss the arrangements that need to be made for you to stay here for the long term. I can have my Gamma make room for you with the warriors.”
- Cedric turns that aggravating smirk back towards me, tilting his head to the side. “Princess?” he whispers down to her, “Would you mind terribly if I left your side for a moment to speak with your husband.”
