Startled and offended, Jane glared at the insufferable man. This may be the most satisfying example of a favorite premise I can remember reading and I look for these: I have just one left.
She realized he was wondering if this scene would be gossiped about, and if the names of Miss Jane Higgenbothem and Lord Blackburn scandalos again be linked.
She had hung on his every word; she had deciphered his every expression. The hero and heroine are hilarious and the perfect blend of lovable and annoyingly un-like-able meaning they are real humans with faults.
I would be pleased to dance with Mr.
