Susan (shaydock) | 651 comments “I misjudged you and acted poorly.” He felt hope bloom at her words but

then wilt when her eyes met his again. “But the fact remains that it would

not be right for you to court me, considering everything.”

He knew time was short, that the maid would be returning with his

overcoat at any moment, but he had to know. “What are you asking me to

consider? Please explain why we cannot be together,” He asked as he

pulled her closer. Without thought, her hands came to lay on his chest. “I

know that you have seen my scars. I know you noticed them the first time

we met on the street, “she began as her voice trembled. “So, you know

that I am…not damaged but certainly not fit for the likes of you. It

wouldn’t be fair to you.”

“But it wasn’t the first time we met,” he blurted, his hands moving to her

waist as their bodies brushed against one another. “I see you on the night

of the fire. We spoke. When I saw your scars again, I was just putting

together the memory that I have never been able to forget.”

“Because you could never forget my deformities,” she assumed. There

was no self-pity in her voice. She bit her lip because the only thing she felt

was regret that she could not accept him. “How could you forget them?

Please, do not believe that I think badly of you for that.”

“No,” he cried, his hands clutching her to him. She must believe him. “It

was your bravery that has stayed with me all this time. And to know you

now… You have completely enchanted me. I have never asked to court

another, and I do not want to ask another. There is only you. “Please…”

The last entreaty was whispered as he stared at her lips.

She closed her eyes, and when she opened them, he could see unshed

tears. “That’s so kind of you to say. Once upon a time…"

Susan (shaydock) | 651 comments I guess it is reveal time:

The Duke’s Ever Burning Passion: Fire and Smoke by Charlotte Stone

It only cost .99 on Amazon right now. Good price for a great book, in fact all three in the series are now each .99

This is a new author for me. I think I had also confused the passage with Lisa Kleypas.
