really loved her mother, and it showed to everybody except Mrs Hardy Delene Crane works with him, she replied, curious She s a woman He s known Delene since they were in college together, he told her He doesn t think of her as a woman Violet made him think of open fireplaces in winter, of warm lamplight in the darkness Her absence had only served to make him realize how alone he was.He and Cag Hart had served in the same mechanized division Few people knew that, because he and Cag didn t talk much about the missions they d shared It forged bonds that noncombatants could not understand.Involuntarily, his mind went back eight years, to the only woman he d really ever loved Shannon Culbertson had been eighteen the year they started dating It had been love at first sight for both of them Anyway, Julie attacked Libby and Jordan didn t stand up for her Jordan made some nasty remarks to Libby He shrugged I m not working for any man who bad mouths my sister How could a living woman compete with a perfect memory You don t keep secrets in a town like Jacobsville We re all one big family We know all about each other Curt was a fine young man with a promising future And Violet was going to date him.He knew it was a bad idea, encouraging her At some point he was going to have to back away from her He didn t want commitment.He hadn t analyzed his feelings for Violet He wasn t going to Not yet But she kindled fires in his blood that he hadn t felt since Shannon Culbertson s death I make up in intelligence for what I lack in looks, she murmured.Too many years of abstinence had left him powerless with Violet s mouth promising heaven.Years of abstinence took control of his will His handsHe watched her face the whole time, watched fear and pain slowly give way to sharp pleasure I ve never done this in broad daylight And I ve never watched, Violet, She felt him, still inside her, still pulsing softly I didn t have the presence of mind to think about protection, either I haven t had a woman for over two years, he said bluntly I m sorry I lost control the minute I started kissing you She d just had sex with her former boss and he wasn t a marrying man You re in love with me I ve always known it There isn t any other reason that would make you give yourself to a man without marriage He d never been with a woman who was so violently in love with him He felt cosseted, valued, possessed.That hadn t happened even with Shannon, when he was much younger Violet lit fires in his body I know you already know it, she said softly But I love you He d taken advantage of what she felt for him, lost control and put her at risk Now he had to stand by and wait to find out if she became pregnant, knowing that if she did, he d be forced to marry her to save her reputation It wasn t the best night of his life, despite the lingering pleasure that reminded him of the afternoon He said that he d never have a child She was pregnant when she died It was his child He hadn t known about it, although he would have married her sooner if he had.He lost not only his fianc e, but his child as well He said that just the thought of a child gave him nightmares now, brought it all back to haunt him She might mistake his invitation for something romantic, but that wasn t the case at all He felt guilty for what he d let happen at his house Violet could be pregnant He didn t dare keep his distance until he knew for sure The woman hadn t a clue about relationships, and she d be in a hell of a fix if she really had become pregnant.He wasn t ready for marriage and a family He might never be Certainly, Violet was hardly the sort of woman he envisioned marrying.He d seduced her, out of loneliness and aching hunger You want to sleep with me, with no ties, isn t that the truth She wanted happily ever after All he wanted was relief from the nagging physical hunger that was taking him over.He hated the whole idea of giving up his freedom He hated the idea of a child in his life He wasn t family man material.Sometimes, a sacrifice was called for That was what he told himself when he drew Violet into his arms and bent to kiss her with forced enthusiasm.He was genuinely out of control His body impaled hers with quick, deft movements that should have been uncomfortable But she was hungry for him, too She opened her legs with a shaken little sigh and arched her hips to encourage him.She was still tingling, but he hadn t given her enough time She felt sad cheated She didn t want to say anything At least he needed her, if nothing.He d never felt such a primitive urge to possess a woman, not even Shannon.she pulled into her driveway and remembered that he hadn t said one word about seeing her again during the weekend.He didn t call, either.There s no way Violet would agree to a termination, so marriage is the only possible resolution He was only marrying her for appearances He felt trapped He didn t want Violet in any way at all, except perhaps physically It was a harsh blow.He d never thought about children, except once, long ago, with Shannon
