He combed his fingers through his hair. It had taken him weeks to get accustomed to all this, to find his footing, to accept it. And with a few words, she threatened to undermine it.

“It’s all in how you look at it. I do exactly as I want. They are the ones who scramble to keep up with me.”

Her eyebrows rose.

“I’m not sure what your beef is. You should be glad Rex is being protected. You are his nanny. His caregiver.”

She rose. “Yeah. I guess that’s true. As Rex’s nanny I don’t have rights. I don’t have a say in the big picture.” She cleared her throat. “I don’t know what got into me thinking I was more.”

She turned and headed down the hall to her room, and Danny groaned. “Marnie...wait! I’m sorry. It’s like we’re arguing two different things.”

She stopped. Faced him. “Oh, don’t worry. I won’t be like one of your families fighting over an estate. I won’t dig in my heels and try to get something I don’t deserve. I know I have no rights.”

With that, she turned and walked back to her room. Part of Danny ached to follow her. But it was getting Rex that had made him see the necessity of high security and bodyguards—

Though bodyguards really weren’t the issue. It was that he hadn’t told her. Meeting her dad in the park, he realized she had trust issues and why. And she was justifiably angry tonight. He’d thought he’d told her about the bodyguards and assumed she’d know that included Rex. But he didn’t want to argue and end up making concessions he shouldn’t make because of what had happened in his bedroom.

He thought about making love. How passionate and happy they were. How all that perfection had disappeared because she had issues too. His trust issues might be fresher, but hers had had time to fester.

He sank to the sofa and put his forehead in his hands, refusing to panic. Tomorrow they’d both be in a better frame of mind. A little sleep and some distance would put it all into focus and they could talk like normal people.

But tonight, he wouldn’t have the pleasure of holding her until they both fell asleep. They wouldn’t make love again, slowly. He wouldn’t get to leisurely explore her curves or sink into her soft skin.

He shook his head, forced his brain to stop. He’d thought he and Leni had talked out his suspicions, but the thing he hadn’t mentioned was his feelings for Marnie. Too fast. Too deep. Too much.

Maybe it was good they were stepping back?
