And I would never take you far from you sister and cousin. You forget I am in your mind and can read your fears."
    She grinned at him, looking mischievous, but obviously relieved. "What am I thinking now?"
    His entire body tightened. "What you are thinking is anatomically impossible, but we can try variations."
    She laughed at him, fully aware of his growing fascination with her. She hoped it would continue to grow for all eternity.
    "It is obsession, not fascination," he pointed out.
    She turned over to lie floating on her back, drifting with the small waves, staring up at the stars glittering over her head. "I'd like to think that somewhere out there is a man for Solange and another one for Jasmine. Good men." She turned her head to look at him as he paced slowly beside her.
    Riordan scooped her up in his arms, unable to bear the melancholy in her voice. He wrapped her up tightly, holding her against his body, wanting to protect her from everything evil in the world.
    Juliette brushed back his hair to look into his eyes. "Someone like you, capable of loving them no matter what. Someone capable of understanding what our lives have been like and the trauma they've been through. Do you think that will ever happen for them?"
    "It really will come out right," he whispered, burying kisses in her hair. "Everything will be all right."
    "I almost feel as if it will never be right again," she said and buried her face against his shoulder.
    "They have us, Juliette. It will not happen overnight, but we can help them rebuild their lives. They are my family now, too. And they are under the protection of the Carpathian people."
    She turned her mouth blindly to his, nearly sinking them beneath the lapping water. He responded, kissing her over and over again. His hands stroked her hair. "It will be all right, Juliette. I promise you, and I take my promises very seriously." He rested his cheek on the top of her wet hair, nuzzling her, making every effort to console and comfort her.
    Juliette snuggled deeper against his body, tightening her hold on him. "I know as long as I have you with me, I'll be happy. With the two of us working together, I can only believe that the people I love will find happiness too. I'm not afraid of our life."

    He lifted her chin and took possession of her mouth with his. They still had a few hours until they absolutely had to go to ground and he was determined to make the most of his time.
