  Her feet moved into the vast space, but all she could
see was Cyrus. He strode through the room the way a
captain commands his ship. Was it possible his maroon 
bruise made him more dashing?
  He was a fine sight in a black broadcloth coat. Her
salacious gaze dropped to a brass button lower on his
waistcoat. The metal glimmered, winking at her with
flirtatious intent very near the tuft of hair she remembered
so well at his navel.
  The corner of Cyrus’s mouth crooked. If she
looked ready to devour him, he read the message on
her face, no words required.
  “Claire.”
  He said her name like a treasured sound. Then, her
landlord bent low over her hand, kissing her knuckles
and keeping her fingers in a tender hold.
Her flesh sung a merry tune recalling how she’d
gripped those broad shoulders of his in a fit of passion.
Was that only two nights ago? Her cheeks turned hot
at the memory.
  Cyrus rose to his full height, holding her hand. He
planted a kiss on her forehead.
  “Mmmm…” he hummed approvingly. “You smell
of almonds.” His lips lingered on her hairline, giving
her another soft kiss. “And vanilla, I think. Something
you cooked?”
  He breathed in her scent, standing close yet not
intimidating in the least. His own smell was clean
and starched with a hint of coffee. She reached high,
touching his face like a woman with every right to
partake of the feast he offered.
  “It’s face powder.” One finger stroked the smooth
square of his jaw, her voice curving with amusement.
  “Today I join the ranks of ladies who meet for luncheon,
and I can’t be sure if I’ve been lured here or
goaded by one very challenging man put on earth to
harass my senses.”
  She caressed his jaw, the grain of his skin smooth
to the touch. He must’ve shaved in the last hour. His
mouth quirked sideways, pressing the maroon bruise
higher up his cheek.
  “Something tells me you’re the perfect woman to
soothe such a man or put him in his place.” His pewter
stare flicked over her exposed skin, settling on her
cleavage. “As to your senses, I shall treat them with
the utmost care.”
