Extra info for A Scandalous Past
Haversham was on the ground five feet away from her with Clayworth standing over him, fire in his twilight eyes. Then the earl scowled at her. ‖ She hated being ordered about. Over the last few weeks she‘d had to follow every stricture from her mother. She‘d been kept from her dearest friend. She‘d been made a prisoner in her own home. She hadn‘t enjoyed one moment of freedom—except for those few moments she‘d spent in Haversham‘s company. The Earl of Clayworth would not dictate to her. Hands on her hips, she glared back at him.
And don‘t stumble around with your words. ‖ She hoped that seemed firm enough, not that she wanted to handle a man like Clayworth, but she didn‘t want the woman to bite her head off. ―So,‖ the dowager began, ―you‘ve caught everyone‘s attention, Miss Avery. And now that you have it, what do you intend to do with it? ‖ ―My lady, you flatter me. I—‖ ―My intent is not to flatter you, but to get a straight answer. That fellow over there has been a friend of my family for years, though he doesn‘t visit enough for anyone to know it.
Fidgety. Restless. But no less stunning. ―The pleasure is, of course, mine,‖ Brendan replied smoothly. ‖ Miss Avery looked as though she‘d just been sentenced to hard labor in Australia, but her mother beamed. ―Oh, my lord, Cordelia would be honored. ‖ Miss Avery‘s green eyes flickered to meet Brendan‘s gaze. ―Yes, honored,‖ she dutifully replied. If he didn‘t know better, he‘d think she truly meant it. Cordelia Avery was as good a liar as he was. He made a mental note of the fact and smiled back at her.
