Example text

The question, uttered so calmly, took him by surprise. He stopped the inventory of his attire to look at her, half-expecting to see that he was now being held at pistol point, but she was standing there quite calmly, awaiting his answer. Pluck to the backbone, that was his Miss Howland, and Lord Edward’s opinion of her mettle went up another notch. Emily was a tall woman—an important factor, considering his own above-average height—yet she always seemed somehow to accomplish a way of looking shorter, almost dumpy.

Emily sat and sat, as the drizzle turned the borrowed cloak sodden and heavy with moisture. She thought and thought, her slanted brown eyes narrowed into thin slits as she concentrated on her scheme. At last, just as a cold drop of water slid off the fur to land on the tip of her nose, a small smile came onto Emily’s face, and she tilted her head slightly to one side, considering the germ of an idea. An absolutely wonderful…awful…sneaky…glorious idea. “Yes-s-s,” she hissed from between clenched teeth.

Lord Edward choked out something about hurrying Lord Henry along with the refreshments and escaped before his sense of humor caused him to fall into public disgrace. He had planned to ingratiate himself with the duchess, who was an integral player in his plan, but it was more than obvious that buttering up Old Horry was naught but an exercise in futility. The duchess wouldn’t remember him above a minute, no matter how well she thought she liked him now. But instead of seeking out his friend, he turned his attention to ferreting out the location of Lady Georgiana among the throng of gracefully gliding dancers, easily spotting her gleaming blond head near the fringes of the polished floor, furiously fanning herself as some young fool all but drooled on her satin-clad feet.
