“You,” he said, the lone word filled with emotion.

Anger? Irritation? She couldn’t tell. “Sir,” she said lamely, dipping into a curtsy. It was likely a silly show of formality in their circumstances, but she was unbearably nervous. What was the proper protocol for greeting the man who had made passionate love to her the night before, the man whose name and face she didn’t even know?

“Damn Nell for this,” he gritted. “She thinks she’s being clever.”

Oh dear. He wasn’t pleased. In fact, he seemed wound as tightly as a watch spring. She faltered, at a loss. “Clever?” Did Lady Needham know what had transpired between them? The prospect was mortifying.

“Never mind,” he growled, snapping the door closed at his back before stalking into the chamber. “It would seem we’re at the mercy of our hostess’s whims.”

“I’m sorry you find my company so offensive,” she murmured.

He frowned, his eyes darkening to a deep, glittering emerald. He stopped a mere foot away from her, clenching his fists. “Not precisely offensive. There are things at work here that you don’t understand.”

It was her turn to frown. “You are correct in that I don’t understand the reason for your sudden discontent. But perhaps you could enlighten me.”

“I could.” He spun on his heel and gave her his back, striding in the opposite direction. “But I don’t wish to, and I find I’m too bloody old for a game of naughty charades.”

He reached for the door, preparing to leave her, and in that moment she was stricken by the oddest feeling that if she allowed him to leave, it might well be the last time she saw him. She hurried after him, her heart making her act even when her head balked at the notion. “Wait.”

He stopped but didn’t turn to face her, didn’t say a word. His head was bowed as though he were waging some sort of inner battle.
