“Miss Overton, wake up.”
She started awake, her body trembling. It had thankfully all been a dream. As her eyes focused on his face, however, her relief dissolved. Heart hammering against her chest, Ally pushed him away and scooted to the far end of the bed. Gathering her skirts around her, careful not to give him a glimpse of anything he shouldn’t be seeing, she hugged her knees to her chest in an attempt to ward off the chill that ran through her. Sweat trickled down her back.
“What are you doing?” Her voice came out in a gasp.
With his lips compressed into a straight line, he sighed and lowered himself to sit on the edge of the bed. The man wore no cravat and didn’t even bother to button his shirt all the way up. “You were having a bad dream.”
“It was probably because you were in it!” She blurted that before she thought any better of it.
His too-thick brows rose in a maddening manner. “You dreamt of me?”
Ally snapped her mouth shut and glared at him. He looked so amused; she wanted to shove him off the side of the bed.
He merely chuckled. “Famous! The only time a woman has dreams of me, I’m the fiend.”
He grinned. “Ogre it is.”
Ally couldn’t take her eyes off him. His mouth turned sensual, and his eyes danced with mirth; it made him look like a rascal. Heavens, he was beautiful when he smiled, this wicked man. It was unfair.
“You may stop frowning at me and go back to sleep. I have no interest in bedding the likes of you, I assure you.”
