"That you know."            "I'm passable," Victoria corrected, "and I've reached the age of being a spinster."            "You've reached the age where you're no longer a twit. You're a woman, and a damned fine looking one. A man, if he were so inclined, could take you to the Mediterranean pirates and sell you for a tidy sum. I suppose you're still a virgin?"            Her face flamed. "Mr. ... Lawrence!"            "So you are. Yes, a tidy sum. Or I could keep you here as my plaything, tame you myself."            "I am not a wildcat!" The place where he held her, his hands to her arms, grew hot, as if his touch was causing friction.            "How would you know? You just admitted you're a virgin."            "I most certainly did not!"            "So you're not a virgin?" He grinned as he watched her struggle with the answer.            Finally she settled on, "Whether I am or not is not your business."            "My dear Miss Cardiff, I would like to make it my business."  Here's Christina's list of new & upcoming books! christinadodd.com/new_releases.html
