Marcus held his wife as they held each other on the couch, staring into the low burning fire in the hearth. Satisfaction settled deep within him, as always happened after their loving. She sighed and cuddled closer, her hand splaying over his chest. He lifted her fingers and kissed each one before settling her softness back on him.
“Yes, my love.”
“Are you planning to return as Captain Hawk anytime soon?”
He chuckled. “Not anytime soon, but I will eventually. Prince Regent needs me—needs my skills now more than anything.”
