“I’ve given it a ton of thought. You’re right, you are an ogre and an oaf.”

He nods, and looks at the ground, his eyes dark and full of sadness. “I understand if you can’t forgive me.”

“But you’re also the kindest, most trustworthy guy I know. Don’t think for a minute that I didn’t know it was you who donated to the film class.” A wide grin splits his mouth, and he looks up and whistles innocently. I step back into him and put my arms around his neck. “But you know what I think the perfect description is?”

His big hands wrap around me and drag me close. “No, what?”

“Cason Harrison, my fiancé.”

“Is that what you think?” he asks, his eyes full of warmth and desire.

I poke him in the chest. “It’s what I know.”

“It’s what I know, too,” he says, grinning. He arches a brow. “Do you forgive me, Londyn? Or perhaps I should say, do you forgive me, fiancée?”

“Always,” I say and go up on my toes. His lips find mine, and the world shimmers around me, my heart so full of love and hope, I’m sure I’m going to burst.

“There’s one matter we need to discuss,” he says.


“You see, you left before you fulfilled your contract, and I believe I have a few more days with you.”

I grin, liking where his mind is going. “You don’t think I fulfilled my end of the contract?” I ask, even though we both know I did, but I’ll play along, see where he’s taking this.

“That’s right, and I plan on taking what’s mine.”

“What are you saying, Cason?”

“I think we should fly back to Cannes, where I can tie you up, and do dirty delicious things to your body.”

“Is that what you think?” I ask.

He scoops me up and I yelp with joy. “It’s what I know.”
