Naomi and Elys No Kiss List Steels Edge (The Edge #4)

Sarah gasped, but there was no way she could right the situation in time. Hugh was more than half on top of her, there were at least three hairpins on the floor, and—

He’d seen her wetter than this, too. He’d seen her completely soaked, back when she was eight and she’d thought she’d been completely hidden in the boughs of the old oak tree at Whipple Hill. Marcus and Daniel had built a fort at its base, no girls allowed. They had pelted her with pebbles until she’d lost her grip and tumbled down.In retrospect, she really shouldn’t have chosen the branch that hung over the lake.

The Fifth Elephant (Discworld #24)

Marcus had fished her out of the dunk, though, which was more than she could say for her own brother.Marcus Holroyd, she thought ruefully. He’d been in her life almost as long as she could remember. Since before he was Lord Chatteris, since before Daniel was Lord Winstead. Since before Charlotte, her closest-in-age sister, had married and left home.Since before Daniel, too, had left.

Virtual Virgin (Delilah Street #5)

She looked up. Marcus’s voice was impatient, but his face held a hint of concern. Get in, he repeated.She nodded and did as he said, taking his large hand in hers and accepting his help into his carriage. Marcus, she said, trying to settle herself into her seat with all the grace and nonchalance she might exhibit in a fine drawing room, never mind the puddles at her feet. What a lovely surprise to see you.

Do you plan to go down to London for the season?

Her lips parted. Surely he could not be serious. Where else would she possibly go, given her unmarried state? It wasn’t as if –I see, she said, and then she put on one of those I’m-smiling-because-I-have-nothing-to-say smiles. Which was even more curious.

I’m sure you cannot wait for him to return, she said, once several seconds had passed without anyone contributing to the conversation.It was obvious there was a subtext to her statements, but he had no clue what it was. Certainly not his subtext, which was that he was waiting for her brother to return so that he might ask for his permission to marry her.

Grim Tuesday (The Keys to the Kingdom #2)

I’m looking forward to seeing him, yes, he murmured.As are we all, Miss Royle said.

Oh, yes, chimed in Honoria’s heretofore silent cousin.There was another long pause, then Marcus turned to Honoria and said, I hope you will save me a dance.

Of course, she said, and he thought she looked pleased, but he was finding it uncommonly difficult to read her this evening.The other two ladies stood there, utterly still, eyes large and unblinking. It brought to mind a pair of ostriches, actually, and then Marcus realized what was expected of him. I hope you will all three save dances for me, he said politely.

Dance cards were immediately brought forth. A minuet was assigned to Miss Royle, a country dance for Lady Sarah, and for Honoria he claimed a waltz. Let gossipmongers do with it what they would. It wasn’t as if he’d never waltzed with her before.Once the dances had been sorted out, they stood there again, a silent little quartet (all quartets should be so silent, Marcus thought), until Honoria’s cousin cleared her throat and said, Actually, I think the dancing is beginning right now.
