Anyone who had ever been kissed would know that she had just been kissed. Thoroughly. ―You‘ll want to tidy up your hair,‖ he said, and he was quite certain it was the least appropriate post-kiss comment he had ever made. But he couldn‘t seem to summon his usual flair. Style and grace apparently required presence of mind. Who would have imagined it? ―Oh,‖ she said, her hand immediately patting her hair, trying rather unsuccessfully to smooth it down. ‖ Not that she had anything to apologize for, but Sebastian was too busy trying to locate his own brain to say so.
If she hadn‘t asked him…If she hadn‘t looked up with those huge, bottomless eyes and whispered, ―Kiss me,‖ he would never have done it. It was a piss-poor excuse and he knew it, but there was some consolation in the knowledge that he had not initiated the encounter. Some, but not much. For all his sins, he wasn‘t that much of a liar. ―I‘m sorry I asked,‖ she said stiffly. He felt like a heel. ―I didn‘t have to comply,‖ he responded, but not nearly as graciously as he ought. ―Clearly I‘m irresistible,‖ she muttered.
Louisa‘s eyes widened with astonishment. ‖ ―I don‘t know. Maybe not. ‖ ―Of course not, but if anyone does, don‘t you think it would be Mr. ‖ ―Maybe not by name. ‘‖ It was true. Annabel was being brought out by Lord and Lady Vickers, and no one had ever heard of her father‘s family, which, her grandfather was quick to point out, was how it should be. In his opinion, his daughter would have been far better off if she‘d never become a Winslow. Louisa frowned nervously. ‖ Annabel grasped Louisa‘s hand in full panic.
