I am so excited because the release date for The Temporary Betrothal is now a mere fortnight away! In this scene, Sophie and Aunt Katherine are meeting Charlie Cantrill’s family–especially his brother Robert–for the first time:
“Robert Cantrill, do stop monkeying about and come down to greet your guests as a gentleman should.” Aunt Katherine turned to Sophie. “The hold you have over men is quite remarkable,” she whispered. “I like basking in your glow.” Sophie’s cheeks heated. Here she was, calling up to Charlie’s brother like a hoyden, when she was supposed to be making a good impression.
