Marchese's Forgotten Bride

Author: Michelle Reid

Publisher: Mills & Boon (2009)

`Stop accusing me of lying,' he said, removing the now empty glass from her nerveless fingers. Cassie was trying to hold icy wet black silk away from her breasts without losing her dignity. She'd soaked her face and the sides of her hair-water was dripping off the end of her nose and her chin.

Grabbing a towel off the rail, he tossed it at her. `Dry your front,' he instructed, then picked up a smaller towel and stepped up close to use it on her dripping face. By now the water had warmed to her body heat and she was feeling calmer-though no less shaken by what he'd said. `What is it about you that makes you say these things?' she fired at him fiercely as she pressed the towel to her front. `Think about it.' His fingers took possession of her chin to lift it upwards, so he could dab the water from her cheeks. `What's in it for me to make up a story as off-the-wall as this?' He was right-what was there in it for him? `You mean-you really don't remember me-at all?'
