He didn’t envy his brothers their contented marriages. Heliked his life—liked being his own man, liked his easy, nonthreatening liaisons with the married women who turned to him for a few hours of wickedness here and there. He liked being essentially alone and rootless. A scowl knit his brow. html Iversley relaxed. “It’s nothing, really. ” Gavin asked. “Prinny has his spies,” Draker put in. Gavin knocked some ash from his cigar into the tin bowl Draker kept for that purpose. “I take it that the woman is one of them?

Gavin growled. “Have you lost your mind? You let her in your house, around your wife and son? ” Draker scowled. “We had to arrange a meeting between you and her that no one would find suspicious, so you’re both here for dinner. But she can’t be as bad as you say. ” “If that’s what you call it,” Gavin muttered. “Fine, go fetch the wench. ” Draker nodded and left the room with Iversley.

Besides, the more adulterous affairs he engaged in, the more cynical he became about marriage, his brothers’ happy unions notwithstanding.

He didn’t explore that question further, for it made him uncomfortably aware of the main difference between him and his half brothers.
