portrait Her aunt was still engaged with Lady Gardwell Could she risk showing it Millicent, she whispered, her heart beating hard Look She opened her hand, giving a glimpse of the miniature tied to her fan, then snapped her fingers shut.Her friend gasped I cannot believe you have brought that here She studied Helens face, a crease of concern between her brows I may not have your ability to read expressions, but I can see something has happened.Helen gave a tiny shrug.Your uncle She tucked in her chin.Millicent nodded her understanding Well, dont let him find out you carried it here I want my best friend at my ball.He wont It is just She stared down at her closed hand My mother is not here.Yes, Millicent said Yes, I know She flicked open her fan, waving it briskly as if she could fan away Helens despondency I feel as if I will jump from my skin at any moment I wish it were all over Tell me some news that will keep me from conjuring visions of tripping over my train or bungling my curtsy.I have just the thing, Helen said, allowing her friend to shift her mood Look behind me Do you see that dark haired man over there, standing by the fireplace Millicent peered across the room You mean the one headed over here, with Mr Brummell Even as Helen turned, she felt her aunts hand close around her arm Helen, dear, I believe Mr Brummell is heading our way Remember to smile.Is that Lord Carlston with him, Lady Pennworth Millicents mother asked, squinting Her voice rang uncharacteristically sharp.I believe it is, Lady Gardwell In contrast, Aunt Leonores tone had a sudden wariness.You are related to him, are you not Helen felt the air chill markedly between the two women Both had smiles fixed upon their faces.Lady Gardwell finally broke the loaded silence I would not want my daughter or myself to be in the way of a family reunion, she said Please excuse us Bonne chance, Lady Helen She sketched a quick curtsy to them both Come, Millicent, I see an acquaintance ahead.She caught her daughters hand and pulled her into the crowd Helen stared after them, Millicents bewildered backward gaze meeting her own astonishment Related Helen said as she lost sight of her friend We are related to him Aunt Leonore touched the diamonds at her throat, her color high under the powder on her cheeks Well, not directly by blood He is your uncles second cousin I had hoped he would have the decency not to claim the connection So, Lord Carlston was related to her uncle She could readily believe it both men seemed to look upon the world with disdain Why did no one tell me she asked Does Andrew know Yes, but it is hardly a connection that we are falling over ourselves to acknowledge And who knew the man would come back We all hoped he had gone for good Her aunt grabbed hold of her arm again, the jolt shifting Helens grip on the miniature Dont waste your time thinking on Carlston, my dear It is Mr Brummell who is important It is he who can make you all the rage Remember, charm and modesty And smile Helen barely had time to do so before the two men stood before them Mr Brummell bowed, cool appraisal on his attractive face He had broken his nose at some point, and the slight flattening disrupted the symmetry of his features In Helens opinion, it added a certain manliness, saving his good looks from blandness Aunt Leonore gave a nod of acknowledgment that set her plume shivering Mr Brummell, how lovely to see you again.Helen felt a ripple of movement around them People were edging back with sidelong glances Were they moving away in deference to Mr Brummell, or disgust at Carlston A quick survey of the surrounding faces gave the answer It seemed Mr Brummells famous influence was not enough to make Lord Carlston palatable Not yet, anyway.It is always a pleasure, madam, Mr Brummell said, bowing once Helen felt herself under his appraisal again, his curiosity evident in the slight lift of his brows Then, with an elegant hand, he indicated Lord Carlston Lady Pennworth, may I present the Earl of Carlston.Aunt bent her neck in frigid acknowledgment Lord Carlston.The Earl inclined his head Madam.Lord Carlston was handsome, Helen conceded, in a hard, angular way that made the men around him seem somewhat effeminate Yet there was a ruthlessness to the set of his mouth that was decidedly repellent His skin was unfashionably tannedboth Andrew and Aunt had mentioned he had been on the Continentand the brown of his eyes was so dark that it merged with the black pupil, making their expression impenetrable It was very disconcerting and gave him a flat look of soullessness, like the eyes of the preserved shark she had seen in the new Egyptian Hall Helen lifted her bare shoulders against a sudden chill How apt There could be no soul in this man he was a murderer And possibly an abductor She wrapped her fingers firmly around the head of the fan and the miniature Just in time, for her aunt was turning to introduce the men.My dear, allow me to present the Earl of Carlston and Mr Brummell Gentlemen, this is my niece, the Lady Helen Wrexhall.Helen dipped into her curtsy but did not lower her eyes as modesty decreed, instead studying Lord Carlston as he bowed He was studying her just as closely, his gaze far too penetrating for politeness For a long moment they observed one another Well, he could look with those dark shark eyes all he liked He would not find much in her face either.Lord Carlston, Mr Brummell, she said, rising from her curtsy and sweeping an aloof glance over them both Andrew might have warned her to keep her distance from his lordship, but she could hardly embarrass her aunt by refusing the introduction And it was an excellent chance to read the man I am pleased to make your acquaintance.Carlston was still watching her closely Lady Helen, it is indeed a delight, he said Particularly since we are related.Distantly, Aunt said, her mouth small.Carlston smiled, and it held all the superiority of his rank And yet irrefutably.Aunt Leonores mouth buckled tighter Mr Brummell cleared his throat A sign to Carlston of some kind, for the Earl immediately swept a calculating gaze across the far side of the room Helen was sorely tempted to look in the same direction, but it would mean too pointed a turn Whatever he saw prompted no expression on his face Lord Carlston gave away nothing.He fixed his gaze on her again and smiled Helen fancied it was the look of a wolf before it leaped Lady Helen, I see that you carry a Vernis Martin fan.She clenched her hand around the fan rivet and miniature, her own smile stiffening into a rictus Of all things, why did he ask about her fan Her free hand found the base of her throat, as if its span could hide the flush of heat that rose into her face.I am a great connoisseur of fans, he added.Really Of fans She kept a stranglehold on her own And do you have much cause to use them Mr Brummells shoulders shook as if he was suppressing a laugh Yes, do you, Carlston he asked.Aunt Leonore widened her eyes in warning Helen, dear, I am sure Lord Carlston merely has an interest.I do, madam He was lyingno doubt of italthough he gave none of the usual telltale signs of deception No rapid blink or hard swallow Would you allow me to inspect your example, Lady Helen It is nothing out of the ordinary, Lord Carlston, she said, rallying a smile as false as his own Why was he so insistent But she could not pass the fan over What if her aunts quick eye found the portrait Im sure it can be of no interest to such an expert.A Vernis Martin is always out of the ordinary, Lady Helen He held out his hand.Helen lifted her chin, meeting his challenge No, she thought savagely No, I will not For a moment she saw something surprising in those shark eyes Sympathy Was he playing some game Helen, show Lord Carlston your fan, her aunt ordered.I cannot believe you are serious, sir, she said, trying to conjure the same teasing tone that Millicent used with her many admirers I feel sure you are funning with me.You will find that I am always serious, Lady Helen.Show him, my dear, her aunt hissed, the real message plain in the tilt of her head Show him the fan so that we may be rid of him.He extended his hand toward her, his gaze steady and infuriatingly indifferent He knew she could not refuse him The discourtesy would be unforgiveable, and her aunt would probably wrench the fan from her grasp and give it to him anyway So be it Raising her chin higher, she pushed the riveted end into his hand, pressing the miniature into his palm She drew back her shoulders, ready for discovery Aunt was going to be furious.He flicked open the sticks, the curve of his large hand cradling the end, shielding it from sight She drew in a steadying breath Any moment now He bent his head to study the painted panorama Why was he waiting He could obviously see the miniaturehe had it in his handbut he was not reacting In fact, he was keeping it hidden.A very pretty fan, he said, but she saw the tiniest of creases between his dark brows If she had to hazard a guess, underneath all that implacable control, Lord Carlston was aghast He looked up, the weight of his silence drawing all attention to his next words She stayed as still as possible If she did not move, perhaps he would just give it back.Was this represented to you as an original Vernis Martin he asked.Helen exhaled A reprieve But why Her aunt drew herself up, all pinched indignation I will have you know that the fan was a gift from her uncle, Viscount Pennworth A lovely gift, Carlston said blandly.He closed the fan with a snap and passed it back to Helen Even as she took the end, she knew it was too light The miniature was gone Had it fallen She glanced down, but it was not on the floor A piece of blue riband was still caught between the sticks Sliced clean He must have cut it off, but she had seen no knife Her fingers closed convulsively around the rivet Was he looking for some kind of vaporish response Well, he would not have it She forced indifference into her face and saw another flicker in those dark eyes Amusement A surge of hot fury caught her in the chest Why was he doing this It did not make sense.I believe we must make way for others who wish to make your acquaintance, Lady Helen, he said, bowing It has been a pleasure.He was leaving With her mothers portrait No Lord Carlston, I do hope you will visit us, she blurted, stopping his withdrawal Beside him, Mr Brummell paused in his own bow, eyebrows raised at her impropriety I mean, Helen continued doggedly, will you do us the honor of calling on us tomorrow Since we are family She dragged up a smile as tight as a fist.Helen her aunt said.The amusement deepened in Lord Carlstons eyes, bringing a sudden warmth to their flat scrutiny Since we are family, Lady Helen, I would be delighted to call tomorrow As would Mr Brummell Mr Brummell smiled, but Helen could see the irritation buried within it Yes, a pleasure, madam Until tomorrow, then.It seemed that even the mighty Mr Brummell bowed to Lord Carlstons will.Tomorrow, Aunt Leonore echoed faintly.The two men withdrew, the crowd parting around them.Helen clenched the fan, keeping track of Carlstons straight back through the shift of bodies and undulating feathers Never before had she felt such a strong desire to slap someone Or worse, to scream her outrage From the Hardcover edition.It s a simple concept, of course but what makes this a success is that it s written in such a wholeheartedly convincing style the research into London in 1812 is impeccable, from the Pride and Prejudice echoing dances to the politics of the day The prose is as witty as Elizabeth Bennet herself
