"I've risked my life to keep you" she said.
"I've risked mine to stay..." - Wulf
The King of Sari desires only his concubine Sapphire, to the utter abhorrence to the Queen, who then retires and banishes her away from the palace. When Sapphire gets to her new home with her fourteen man-servants, to her utter shock and awe, she finds an unexpected gift from the Queen. It's Prince Wulfric of D'Ashier, her country's enemy, in her healing chamber barely alive. She finally regains her freedom from her loveless concubine contract, and now only to die at the hands of the most wondrous, magnificent specimen of a man she has ever seen!
Wulf met her dark eyes with a raised brow, "So intimate an introduction should be preceded by a kiss, don't you think?"
"What a lovely idea" - Sapphire
Wulfric stands in the healing chamber and prays for death after the torture he's just endured at the hands of an enemy, when he looks up and sees a vision of pure beauty pressing herself on the glass, her pure desire willing him to live. The prince has found his resplendent miracle and will make sure she is by his side forever, no matter the consequences to his kingdom or his heart. She is no longer the King of Sari's special favored concubine, or General Erikson's spirited brilliant daughter ... No, Sapphire is Wulf's Katie, the one and only true love of his existence, and Wulf will put his life and crown on the line to have her forever!
"My prince." She said. The sight of her made his chest ache.
"I'm all yours."
"Never forget that."
In the simulated torchlight, her dark eyes glittered up at him.
"You captured me," she purred. "Stole me. Naked."
"I'd do it again..." - Wulf and Katie
