She had rules! She had a life plan that worked for her! Go to the gym, eat salads and broccoli. Focus on her career and steer clear of Luke Steele! The first part of the plan…well, she accomplished that on some days. The last rule…um…well, he wasn’t helping her. Not one little bit! So instead of running from him, Naya would accept the attraction, but with boundaries. If he wouldn’t agree to the rules, she would…well, she’d do something. So far, all of her plans weren’t working but she’d eventually end up with a winning plan. Luke Steele saw the lovely temptation that was Naya and knew that his single days were over. Just like his three brothers before him, he’d found his soul mate and he was willing to tumble headlong into marriage. After avoiding the matrimonial state for so long, he had to laugh at how hard it was to convince the gorgeous woman to trust him. Until she set up the rules. Rules to an affair? Oh, hell no! And "no way" to an affair either! This woman was his. Forever!

There are other manifestations of greatness than to relieve suffering or to wreck an empire. Julius Caesar and John Howard are not the only heroes who have smiled upon the world. In the supreme adaptation of means to an end there is a constant nobility, for neither ambition nor virtue is the essential of a perfect action. How shall you contemplate with indifference the career of an artist whom genius or good guidance has compelled to exercise his peculiar skill, to indulge his finer aptitudes? A masterly theft rises in its claim to respect high above the reprobation of the moralist. The scoundrel, when once justice is quit of him, has a right to be appraised by his actions, not by their effect; and he dies secure in the knowledge that he is commonly more distinguished, if he be less loved, than his virtuous contemporaries. While murder is wellnigh as old as life, property and the pocket invented theft, late-born among the arts. It was not until avarice had devised many a cunning trick for the protection of wealth, until civilisation had multiplied the forms of portable property, that thieving became a liberal and an elegant profession. True, in pastoral society, the lawless man was eager to lift cattle, to break down the barrier between robbery and warfare. But the contrast is as sharp between the savagery of the ancient reiver and the polished performance of Captain Hind as between the daub of the pavement and the perfection of Velasquez.
