Lone Star Seduction(54)

By: Day Leclaire

“Listen.” Around them the bells tolled the midnight hour. “It’s the first minute of Christmas and my final responsibility to my family has been discharged.” He took her hand in his and slipped a ring onto her finger. “I can’t think of a better time to tell you that I love you more than life itself and to ask if you’ll marry me.”

A gorgeous diamond solitaire captured the flickering candlelight and threw it outward in rainbow rays of hope. “Oh, Alex.” It took her a moment to gather her self-control enough to respond. “I’ve loved you since the minute I first saw you.”

His gaze grew tender. “Is that a yes?”

She answered him with a kiss, a kiss that held all the passion their life together would bring and echoed the love that had filled the church that evening. When she pulled back, the expression in her eyes was beyond anything he’d ever see before.

“Yes, Alex. It’s definitely a yes.”
