Title: Tangled Passions
Author: Butler Jewelann
 
Excerpt
Jamie had to find out if this man standing before her had those scars. She curled her fingers around his shirt and tugged at it.

Ty hands clasped hers in a tight grip. "What do ye think ye are doing?"

"I want to know what kind of a lover I'm getting before I consent to let ye have the horse."

His dark eyes narrowed into slits as his gaze bored into hers. "Ye want a sample before I agree to your proposition? Is that it?"

She kept her eyes steady under his cutting stare. "I

wouldn't want to discover that ye weren't up to my standards after we made this bargain."

He gazed at her and Jamie waited with baited breath to see if he would accept her unusual proposal. The longer he gazed at her the more Jamie was positive he was tempted by her offer.

Bonny Lad nickered and it seemed to jerk Ty out of his thoughts. He released her hands and stepped back from her. "Ye are a lovely woman and I'm sure many men would take ye up on your...extraordinary offer. But I'd rather purchase this horse in the usual manner."

"Ye won't reconsider?" Instantly Jamie knew she shouldn't have pushed him. Where before he had been coldly polite, even curious, he now appeared offended.

"That is a price I will not pay."

"Either that or ye're afraid of me," she said trying to goad him into acceptance of her offer. But her feelings were experiencing a toxic, swirling mixture of anger and regret that she had even offered this proposition.

His hands balled into tight fists and he turned away from her. "I don't like women like you, Your Grace."

"What kind of woman is that?" Behind his back Jamie reached out to touch him, but stopped and let her hand fall to her skirt.

"Practiced. Demanding. Immoral."

Practiced? If only he knew. Jamie's raised her chin. "No more immoral than you. You're the one who is married, as ye so kindly reminded me."

He turned to face her again and there was a look of disbelief in his eyes. "But I dinna accept your rather interesting offer."

"Ye thought about it. And ye just now called it 'interesting'." Head high Jamie started to walk toward the door. He reached out and grabbed her by the arm.

"Just how many men have been your lovers?"

A small quivering smiled played on Jamie's lips. "Only one. My husband. If it's any of your business."

She jerked her arm free of Ty's grasp and mustering up what was left of her dignity she sedately walked to the door. Blinded by her quiet tears, that she was thankful Ty couldn't see, she fumbled with the lock until she finally managed to open the door and departed from the stables. The open door swung shut with a gentle wooden thud.
