Would Grant have welcomed the prospect of becoming a father? Or would he have viewed her pregnancy as yet another trap to end his carefree ways? Her palms felt damp and cold. No, Grant was not a family man. He would not have wanted the responsibility. And she must never speculate otherwise, for it was disloyal to Robert’s memory. Miss Oliver cleared her throat. ” Lucien looked far from willing. Ducking his chin, he stood up slowly.

He exclaimed over the exotic animals, among them several lions, a grizzly bear, and an old tigress. When they finally left the Tower, the purple shadows of dusk lay over the city.

A pang struck her heart. She couldn’t stop a series of morbid questions from pushing into her mind. What if she had gone to Grant instead of Robert all those years ago? Would Grant have welcomed the prospect of becoming a father? Or would he have viewed her pregnancy as yet another trap to end his carefree ways?
