I laria didn’t know his name. She couldn’t even remember if she had asked
for it in the first place. The dark blue of his jacket signified he was a
guard, though the location of his typical post in the palace was irrelevant at
The wine from dinner buzzed through her veins. The guard’s hot breath
fanned against the tingling skin of her neck. His lips trailed down and over
“My lady,” his voice was a harsh whisper, his hands encircling her waist.
“Maybe we shouldn’t—”
Ilaria shoved him back against the nearest wall, taking two fistfuls of his
shirt and yanking him down until his nose touched hers.
“Shut up,” she hissed before crushing their mouths back together.
She hadn’t picked him for his better judgment; rather, for his discretion.
Ilaria could use him as she pleased, knowing he wouldn’t tell all of his
friends about it. Even if he did, he wouldn’t be the first or the last. He would
only come to the realization of how many of his friends she already toyed

Ilaria reached around him to grab hold of the door handle and, jerking it
open, pushed him inside. The room was mostly dark, aside from a very small
fire in the hearth and the still setting sun slipping through the curtains. It
suited her just fine. Taking a few steps back until the back of the guard’s legs
hit the side of a settee and he went tumbling down. Ilaria hiked up her skirts
just enough to slip into his lap, and grasped his shirt again to pull him up into
The strike of a match and the glow of a cigarette caught her eye from the
corner of the room. It was just enough light with the curls of smoke to
illuminate the piercing green eyes staring at her.
Ilaria growled, shoving the guard back down and rising to her feet. She
didn’t offer him a second glance.
