And raised one small gloved hand to push her hat back into place. The horse snorted again, and she turned toward the sound and looked directly into the gaze of the rider. He was scowling down at her—dark-faced and fierce-browed. He was obviously a gentleman, judging by the cut of his coat, the carefully arranged neckcloth, and the high polish on his boots. A fairly young gentleman too—not a particularly handsome one, but with an air that said he was used to getting whatever he wanted. As Sophie watched, his eyes went wide and his jaw slack, as if he couldn’t believe what he was seeing.

Not lack of interest from the chits, I’ll be bound. ” The comment stung Rye’s pride—the more so because, in part at least, it was true. What sense was there in raising hopes among the young ladies at this assembly by dancing and flirting when he would never be able to form an attachment to one of them? Even worse, what if he were to meet a woman he could care about, but could not afford to marry her?
He was an only son who would inherit a sizable estate… sizable enough, perhaps, to lend a hand to assist Rye with Ryecroft Manor. And his mother and her mother were already bosom friends. It was perfect. She pushed aside the thought of having to listen to his prosing ways day after day and made up her mind to be congenial, charming, and captivating. And, as she ran lightly down the stairs to join him, Sophie decided that her first action—if the choice were ever hers—would be to rip down this dark and dingy pile of brick and build something light and fresh and airy in its place.
