Allison heard the threat in his voice. Felt the danger. Percy obviously didn’t. He puffed his narrow shoulders. ” A muscle at the side of Montfort’s jaw twitched. This had gone far enough. Of course, she was not concerned for Montfort, but for Percy. She knew she had to stop the two adversaries before they caused a scene.
He couldn’t tear his gaze from her. Dear Lord, what a vision. ” He ignored Chardwell’s hearty laugh and walked toward her. He kept his head high and wore a confident smile on his face. Her presence made having to be here almost enjoyable. He would miss her when their little game was over. +++ The dull throbbing in Allison’s head grew more intense with each passing minute. She knew exactly when it had started. The minute her brother David had summoned her to his study again this afternoon to discuss her progress in choosing a husband.
She wondered what her brother would say if he knew how close Lord Archbite had come to stating his intentions this afternoon. He undoubtedly would be elated. “Lord Hartley. Lady Hartley,” Percy greeted, nodding politely to David and bowing over Lynette’s hand. The look on David’s face remained friendly when he greeted Percy. A sudden thought raced through her mind. She couldn’t imagine the two of them as brothers-in-law. Once she married him—if she married him, Percy would be an odd mix in her otherwise handsome family.
