His hand was on my throat, and he was crushing back me with his body into the cold steel beam behind me. "Yes I have loved, Ms. Lane, and although it's none of your business, I have lost. Many things. And no I am not like any other player in this game and I will never be like V'lane, and contrary to what you think, I get a hard-on a great deal more often than occasionally." He leaned fully against me and I gasped. "Sometimes--devil help me--it's over a spoiled little girl, not a woman at all. And yes, I trashed the bookstore when I couldn't find you. You'll have to choose a new bedroom, too. And I'm sorry your pretty little world got all screwed up, but everybody's does, and you go on. It's how you go on that defines you." His hand relaxed on my throat. "And I am going to tattoo you, Ms. Lane, however and wherever I please." His gaze dropped down over my sun-kissed, lightly oiled, very bare skin. The delicately strung together hot pink triangles covered very little, and while I'd not minded so much on the beach, being nearly naked around Barrons felt a lot like going to a shark convention lightly basted in blood.
