Excerpt:


Sophie spooned a mouthful of soup, her insides churning.


For the sake of her cook and the hungry boys, Lady Loughton had started dinner without Fitz. Though she hadn’t entirely given up. Not one, but two empty places remained, one at the head of the table, and one directly across from Sophie, and the footmen made no moves to clear away dishes.


“Who else is coming, Mother?” Twelve-year-old James called from his place near the vacant seat at the head of the table.


“You shall see,” Lady Loughton said.


“Is it Fitz’s fiancée?” Cassandra asked.


Nancy leaned over her plate and peered down the table. “Why have you placed her between Charlotte and me, Mama, and not next to Fitz?”


Lady Loughton smiled.


“Mama,” Cassandra said. “Tell us.”


Sophie glanced at her hostess and cleared her throat. “The soup is delicious, my lady.”


“Not too tepid?”


“Not at all,” she lied. As in many great houses, the kitchens were a good distance away.


“Lady Glanford,” Cassandra said, “you are purposely diverting our mother.”


Just as Sophie opened her mouth to defend herself, the dining room door burst open.


“Here we are.” Windblown and damp, Fitz filled the doorway and paused with a grin and a flourish. “And look who I’ve found. Your favorite brother.”


A man appeared next to Fitz and Sophie’s heart leapt into a gallop.


“I knew it would be you,” Cassandra cried.


Sophie steadied her spoon and tried to quiet the bolt of instant, unbidden attraction, and the rollicking tumult inside her. Taller than Fitz, the brother’s profile revealed a strong stubbled jaw, straight nose, and full lips. Dark hair brushed the edge of a white collar and crisply tied neckcloth; wide shoulders filled the dark superfine of a coat that tapered down to buff breeches covering the powerful legs of a man who must spend a great deal of time in the saddle.


Her gaze traveled back up and met blue eyes, and her breath left her. The same hard-planed cheeks, the same stubborn jaw, the same sardonic lips—but young Lovelace had grown into a shockingly handsome man.


It would have to be that brother.
