Sample text

She missed her mother, and she really missed her father, and most of all she missed the solid earth beneath her feet. She knew herself in Gloucestershire. She knew what was expected of her. She knew what to expect from other people. Was it so much to want to feel like she knew what she was doing? Surely that wasn‘t an unreasonable wish. She looked up, trying to make out the constellations. There was too much light coming from the party to find clarity in the night sky, but the stars were still twinkling here and there.

No,‖ he mused. ‖ She wanted to ask him what he meant, but she didn‘t know quite how to do it. He looked so lost in his own thoughts it almost seemed rude to interrupt. And so she waited, watching him with a curious expression, knowing that if he turned to her, he would see the question in her eyes. He never did turn to her, but after a minute or so, he said, ―It‘s different in the morning. The light is flatter. Redder. It catches the mist in the air, almost as if it creeps up from underneath.

Whatever you do, don‘t tell me your name. ‖ That was a relief. He wasn‘t going to pull her off into the darkness, and he wasn‘t going to maul her as Lord Newbury had done. Regardless, she ought to return to the party. Conscience or no, he was not the sort of gentleman with whom a young unmarried lady ought to be alone. Of that she was absolutely certain. Again, she thought of Lord Newbury, who was the sort of man she was supposed to be with. She sat down beside him. ―Excellent choice,‖ he applauded.
