Izzy climbed the antique oak stairs to the
second floor of the farmhouse, then pulled down another, slimmer, flight
which led to the loft where she slept.
Ned and Jax followed close behind her. She
paused briefly on the second floor to tell the men, “Second floor is mostly
for my library and collections and my business office and of course, the
guest rooms. I’m taking you to my personal space now. “
