This is the corrected version, thank you Astrid Goes For A Spin :)

My arms hurt after a long and laborious day in the kitchen, helping Marthe. I had helped her skin the rabbits, first recoiling at the thought but then getting used to it. The sight, the smell, the sound of the knife cutting the skin, tearing it. The worst part was the touch. The feeling of rabbit fur under your fingers, soft and innocent, to reveal the bloody red muscle underneath.

We would have raw rabbit for dinner. Well, Matthew would. He had not had a drop of blood since his last hunt, three weeks ago and he would have to get some nutrients into him. He refused to drink any of my blood while I was with child-or with children should I say-even though I was profuse with it. I almost missed him feeding from me, it had kept us close. Now he was hardly ever there, demanding that I rest for the children's sake. I always disobeyed. It did not feel right to let Marthe do all the work. Yet every evening I was reminded that it was her job and when Matthew had finished scolding me, he would storm downstairs. I would hear the shouts and the snarky comments made by Marthe, reminding him that "Elle sera bien"; she will be alright. I smiled to myself.

I was going to be alright.

I placed a hand on my stomach.

"Yes, they will be alright." he smiled and embraced me, turning me in his arms and nuzzling the spot behind my ear.

"They will be fine." he whispered and placed his hands over mine, cradling my little baby bump.

I felt my happiness combust and fill my entire body as his breath warmed my neck and his words filled my mind. I couldn't help but anticipate the future, I would have a family. The de Clermont family would have new kinsmen. I would be a mother...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors.

Marimar Amieva: I just can't believe the story! I absolutely loved it, all of it. The characters and their chemistry between them, and the fact that they are relatable.

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly.

They should have different names a...
