My apologies. I did start traveling down a morose path, didn‟t I? ” “Ah, yes,” Ainsley said. ‟ ” “That hardly sounds jolly,” Walfort said. ” Jayne asked. “I do. ” “I do not want reality when I‟m reading,” Walfort said. The conversation moved on to other writers and other works. Other guests began to join in. Soon arguments, laughter, challenges, and opinions were flowing freely. She watched her husband smile, listened as he laughed, and felt bittersweet happiness. The balls held at Walfort‟s estate were almost as famous as the hunts.
Why did her eyes suddenly shine with such fervor? And why did she think it was any of her business? These younger girls lacked decorum. Perhaps that was the reason his mother had a young lover. The man couldn‟t tolerate the silliness of those new to the ballrooms. ” She laughed, a high, tinkling, irritating sound. The echo of childhood. They were nearly to the bottom of the stairs when his gaze fell on Jayne. Now there was a woman. Young, but mature. No silly giggling, no tittering. Her gown ~ 52 ~ was a deep purple, and he knew, without seeing her face, that it would bring out the rich blue of her eyes, that it would make them appear violet.

I would unpin your hair and bury my fingers in it. ” As though he‟d actually done all these things to her, her traitorous body heated and yearned for more. She was starving for affection. “Don‟t,” she rasped. ” “It‟s not a game to me, Jayne. ” “You shouldn‟t. It‟s ludicrous. Disgusting. ” She shot to her feet, knowing her words were unfair, but she didn‟t like his nearness, his sultry voice, his titillating touch.
