I knew that you loved me. It didn’t take long for me to come to my senses,” he murmured. “You’ll be bored with a desk job,” she said worriedly. “No, I won’t,” he denied, rolling over so that she was lying half under him. “I’m going to be a family man now, with new responsibilities.” He searched her soft eyes and smiled. “I love you, Cecily.
