Annelise waited until the door closed behind her to sit down on the now-rumpled bed. It was a good, solid mattress—at least there were some advantages that money could buy. She pulled off her bonnet and set it down beside her, catching a glimpse of her reflection in the mirror. Having spent the better part of an hour staring at the perfection of Hetty Chippie, the vision was even more disheartening. She glanced down at her feet. It was really unfair that she be cursed with big feet, particularly when compared to Hetty's tiny ones.

As long as she had her own room she would be content. She had an aversion to sharing a bed with a stranger, partic-ularly since most people she knew didn't share her affection for frequent bathing. It was the one thing she insisted on, and she usually got her way. She heard the sounds of a man's voice—low, beguiling and too quiet for her to make out the words, but the timbre of it was doubtless irresistible. Not her host. It could only be her young charge who shrieked with unseemly laughter, and there was no missing the booming jocularity of another man, one who must be her host.

I'm sure you're not so unwise," he said with a knowing look that was far too familiar. Oh, God, he was flirting with her, Annelise thought. She managed her best smile. "Oh, a girl with Miss Het-ty's qualities can certainly expect to find someone of a compatible age and nature. " A good ten years younger than Christian Montcalm. Neither of the Chippies looked pleased with that statement, though oddly enough Hetty seemed less disturbed than her father. "She's marrying a title, and that's all there is to it," Josiah said flatly, and there was an ugly expression around his mouth that Annelise didn't quite like.
