Chapter 19: “No Promises” (Unmasking Mr. Darcy)
Genevieve was now on her feet, holding her dress up over her front. As though there was any part of her he hadn’t already seen. A surge of possessiveness filled Asher’s chest, only for the air to rush out at her next words.

It was a new feeling. It was as though the floor went out from under him. He stood there with a bowl of strawberries in his hand and a bottle of champagne in the other, at a loss for what to do next.

“You do,” she said, her eyebrows rising slightly.
He nodded. “I do. And I understand.” He moved slowly closer until he stood barely a hair’s breadth away. Holding up the champagne, he added, “Here.”

“Sit, please,” he said.
After a moment’s hesitation, she perched on the edge of the bed.
Sitting beside her, he plucked a strawberry from the bowl. “You found out about me.”
