Example text

The messenger from Keynings was sitting upright in the tiny reception room, his three-cornered hat clutched in big hands. He rose instantly. “Jeb,” Cate said, trying not to show inappropriate pleasure, for it was clear the news wasn’t good. Jeb Littlefair came as close to a friend as possible between a groom and a son of the house. They were of an age, had played together as boys and ridden together as youths. Two months ago, during the fateful visit, Jeb had always accompanied Cate on his long morning rides, relaxing into first names and informality.

He looked at the object presented. ” “My cook insists sweets are better for shock than brandy. ” Cate obeyed, and the mist did seem to clear a little. He sat again, sinking his head into his hands. “I can’t believe it. ” He flinched at his words and looked up. “I didn’t want this. ” “Of course I do. It’s a damned shame. ” “Yes, that’s possible. ” It wasn’t something to be spoken, not even to Perry, but Cate was sure his family—his mother and sister-in-law in particular—were appalled at the thought of him in control of the earldom.

No need to worry about Perry, who could always take care of himself. Relieved of all burdens except the most onerous, he need only walk and talk and be . . what? How did he balance the possibilities that he was the earl, or guardian to a future baby earl? He passed through the hatchmented doors and into the entrance hall. It might have been comforting if it reminded him of his boyhood. He’d been happy then. During Roe’s reign, however, he’d refurbished this space in the modern style. The oak paneling had been stripped out and replaced with pale gray walls, faux-marble pillars, and reproductions of Grecian statues in blue niches.
