Victoria had very mixed feelings about Jasper Thornley. Although she was attracted to him, she didn't trust him. He kept showing up exactly when she needed him. How did he know every time she was in trouble? Was he trying to
protect her, like he said, or was he trying to hurt her? Despite her feelings of distrust, she fell in love with Thornley. When he held her, she felt safe. But she couldn't shake her feelings of distrust.
