Daisy Devreaux had forgotten her bridegroom’s name.
“I, Theodosia, take thee . . .”
She caught her bottom lip between her teeth. Her father had introduced
them several days ago, that terrible morning the three of them had gone to get
the marriage license, and she’d heard the name then. Right afterward the man
had disappeared, and she hadn’t seen him again until a few minutes ago when
she’d walked down the staircase of her father’s Central Park West duplex
into the living room where this makeshift midmorning wedding ceremony
was taking place.
Her father stood behind her, and Daisy could almost feel him vibrating
with disapproval, but his disapproval was nothing new. He’d been
disappointed with her even before she was born, and no matter how hard
she’d tried, she’d never been able to get him to change his mind.
She risked a sideways peek at this bridegroom her father’s money had
bought for her. A studmuffin. A very scary studmuffin with his towering
height, lean, whipcord build, and those eerie amber eyes. Her mother would
have loved him.
When Lani Devreaux had died in a yacht fire last year, she’d been in the
arms of a twenty-four-year-old rock star. Daisy had finally reached the point
where she could think about her mother without pain, and she smiled to
herself as she realized that the man standing at her side would have been too
old for her mother. He looked to be in his mid-thirties, and Lani had usually
drawn the line at twenty-nine.
His hair was so dark it was nearly black, and those chiseled features
might have made his face too pretty if it weren’t for his strong jaw, not to
mention that intimidating scowl. Men with such brutal good looks had
appealed to Lani, but Daisy preferred older, more conservative types. Not for
the first time since the ceremony had begun did she wish her father had
picked someone less intimidating.
She tried to steady her nerves by reminding herself that she wasn’t going
to have to spend more than a few hours in her new husband’s company. As
soon as she had a chance to tell him her plan, this would all be over.
Unfortunately, her plan also meant breaking the sacred marriage vows she
was getting ready to take, and since she wasn’t the sort of person who could
take a vow lightly—especially a marriage vow—she suspected her guilty
conscience had induced the memory block.
She started over again, hoping the name would poke through her mental
barrier. “I, Theodosia, take thee . . .” Once again her voice trailed off.
Her bridegroom didn’t even spare her a glance, let alone try to help her.
He stared straight ahead, and the uncompromising lines of that hard profile
made her skin prickle. He’d just spoken his own vows, so he must have
mentioned his name, but the lack of inflection in his voice had escalated her
emotional tailspin, and she hadn’t taken it in.
“Alexander,” her father spit out from behind her, and Daisy could tell by
the sound of his voice that he was clenching his teeth again. For a man who
had been one of the United States’ foremost diplomats, he certainly didn’t
have much patience with her.
