Tess couldn't hold back a small chuckle. "I don't know how you can say such a thing. I have bags under my eyes from crying. My clothes hang on me because I have no appetite. And worse of all, I'm the wife of a murderer." The last part had her vision blurring. "How could I've..."
"Stop, you had no way of knowing." John wrapped his arms around her and held her tight against his chest. "Now, why don't you come downstairs with me? I'll get you settled in the parlor with Reece and then head into the kitchen to get you some coffee."
She leaned into him for a moment longer, wanting him to take her back to bed and make love to her. Forcing the seductive idea out of her head, she lifted her gaze to his.
His lips twitched in amusement, and he cupped his hands around her face. "You're regretting your decision to have me sleep in the guest bedroom last night, aren't you?"
She stiffened, surprised by how easily he'd read her thoughts. Their bond had grown stronger over the last few days, but she didn't want to admit the truth to him. "I was thinking I should probably dress before meeting your cousin. After all, the man is a stranger."
"He won't be for long." He leaned forward and dropped a quick kiss on her lips. "One look at you, and he'll beg for a chance to join us in bed."
Her fingers curled and dug into the smooth cotton of his shirt. "I'm, uh, not sure that's wise."
John smiled and stepped to one side to direct her around the bed. "Sweetheart, we both know you are struggling to keep your hands off me. Wait until you meet Reece."
"Meaning?" She followed his lead out of the bedroom door without bothering to find her slippers.
"Only that it won't take you long before you'll desire him as much as you do me." He drew her to a stop at the top of the landing and swept her up into his arms. "Now, just relax. I'll have you settled on the couch in the parlor before I introduce you to Reece then I'll head off to the kitchen."
Tess wrapped her arms around his neck and didn't argue.
