Weekend Writing Warriors-The Outcast Prince

Following on from last week, we find out what is going on in Caspian's head.

“That’s going to complicate things,” he murmured as he tucked a strand of her dark blond hair behind her ear. His lips still felt the pressure of hers, and his skin was hyperaware of every subtle move she made, her body pressed against his in a way that was far too intimate. He wanted her, he couldn’t remember wanting anyone quite so much, and he was sure she would have noticed his attraction.

A look of surprise lifted her eyebrows. “That’s not what I was expecting to hear.”

He let his hand fall away from the silken strands of her hair. “I shouldn’t have done that.” Caspian’s hand touched the desk and his head was filled with images of another night years ago and what had happened on the desk.

Caspian Mort can feel the history in anything he touches, a gift he inherited from his father, the Crown Prince of Annwyn. Devastated over his ex-wife's infidelity, Caspian has withdrawn from human contact except when working as an antiques dealer.

While assessing the contents of the historic Callaway House he encounters the beautiful Lydia Callaway and senses that her home is haunted by a banished fairy.
But what does the dangerous exile want? Unbeknownst to Lydia, she's the owner of the last remaining portal to Annwyn--a mirror hidden somewhere in the house.

To keep Lydia safe, Caspian will have to divulge the secrets of his heritage, and risk losing his heart again.

What an intriguing character and setup. And now he's gone and gotten himself entangled in Lydia's life. I like it!

Great story concept. This is an intriguing scene. Lots of information without feeling like it's an infodump. Good 8, Shona. :-)

I don't think I like him very much. He is not really treating her right.
