Claudio gave a masculine chuckle as if he could not imagine such a thing. As if you would.
She wanted to say yes just to prove him wrong, but told the truth instead. What we want and what we allow ourselves to do are rarely the same thing. And it is a testament to your suitability to your position that you live by this stricture. She turned away from him and started putting on her jewelry. And you wonder why I compared being a princess to being a prisoner? No more than most people, she admitted. The man so well-known in diplomatic circles for his perspicacity was thick as a brick where she was concerned.
Two of the delegates were less than subtle in expressing their belief it was past time I gave you an heir, she said instead of answering.

The doctor said that women who have been on the pill for a prolonged time can take longer to get pregnant, but it will happen soon enough. After all, we know everything is in working order. Worse than salt on wounds, those words were like the lashing of a cruelly wielded whip. Prior to marrying three years ago, he had required they go through several tests including blood type and the compatibility of his sperm with the mucus on her cervix.
He had also requested she have her fertility cycles tested, just to be sure. Knowing that a big part of why he was marrying her was so that she could provide heirs for the Scorsolini throne, she had agreed without argument.
http://weygouk.com/cache/2019-08-26/1791.php Everything had come back normal. They were compatible for pregnancy and she was as fertile as any other woman her age. The biggest surprise for her had been his desire to wait to have children for a while. Unable to stand any level of intimacy in the face of what she knew was to come, even such a simple touch, she turned away from him. Helpless anger filled Claudio as Therese moved from him, her womanly curves taunting a libido that ached for her night and day. He wanted to grab her back and demand to know why after three years his touch was no longer acceptable, but that would be the act of a primitive man and the crown prince of Isole dei Re was in no way primitive.
Besides, physical rejection from her was not a new thing. It had been happening for months now, but each time she turned away from a physical connection, it still shocked him. After two years of receiving an incredibly passionate response on every occasion when he touched her, he could be forgiven for finding it nearly impossible to reconcile to her sudden change of heart. Prior to the last few months, he would have sworn that Therese loved him. Her love had not been one of his requirements, so he had not dwelt on it too much…until it was gone.
It was not that he needed the emotion from her, but he could not help wondering where it had gone and why she no longer seemed to want him with the latent passion that had drawn him to her in the first place. Her physical rejections had started a month or so after she went off the pill so they could try for a baby. At first, he had thought that maybe her hormones had been at fault. Then sometimes she would make love with him the way she used to and all his concerns on that score would disappear. Only to reappear when she turned him down again. He was not a man who had suffered much rejection in his life, particularly from a woman he desired physically.
For it to come from his own wife was totally unacceptable.
