Cordie sat bolt upright. ‖ Her mother bustled inside, wearing the brightest smile Cordie had seen in a very long time. ‖ Silently she agreed, though for very different reasons than she thought her mother did. She stared blankly at her mother, intent on not giving anything away.
The boy frowned. ‖ He tentatively tipped the snifter back and took just a sip. He squinted and moved his tongue around like a dog trying to get rid of a bad taste. ―All right,‖ Brendan said with an indulgent smile. ―You‘re not ready for it yet. ‖ Pleased, Thomas placed the glass on a side table. He tilted his head to one side, looking intently at his uncle. ‖ ―A little family business. ‖ Thomas nodded, as if he understood, though he couldn‘t possibly fathom what Brendan was trying to accomplish.
Evelyn Greywood, Nicola Dearden, and Beatrice Peake, just to name a few. Everyone wants to know what you did to capture the earl‘s attention. He never dances, Cordelia. Did you know that?
