“The purpose behind your aggravating persistence eludes me, sirrah. What is it exactly that you wish to know? Lord Lucien is a fine, noble gentleman – ”

“Who loves you to the point of distraction and cannot bear to think of a prolonged separation.”

“If you think that educating your girl is enough for her to tackle the boundaries of tradition, then you are wrong.
