Claimed: The Pregnant Heiress(64)

By: Day Leclaire



“Uh—”

“Names it is. I’m thinking Penelope after your mother. We could call her Nell for short.”

Chase shook his head, dazed. “Nell?”

“Excellent suggestion.”

“Emma?”

“Yes, sweetheart?”

“How do you feel about getting married in a hospital gown?”

“I don’t care what I’m wearing or where we marry.” She stole another kiss. “So long as it’s to you.”

“I love you, Emma. And I swear to you we’ll make sure that our future will have nothing to do with what we experienced in the past. We’ll change it for the better. You’ll see.”

“Of course we will. Because you’re not your father and I’m not my mother. We’ll make better choices.”

She’d given him the perfect answer. For the first time that day he allowed himself to fully relax. To embrace the sense of peace and joy and calm certainty that filled him. Finally, finally, finally he had everything he wanted in his life. Emma, the woman he loved, held safe and secure within his arms. Their precious daughter, still nestled safe within her mother’s womb. And in a matter of days, a home. A real home.

A home in which to live out their dreams for a better tomorrow.
