      They stood side by side, watching a man juggle flaming torches near the house in comfortable silence. Charlotte glanced over and caught the calculating gleam in Lord Andrew’s eye as he watched the torches fly up and down.
      ‘I know you have every confidence in your abilities,’ she said, ‘however, the salve I use for burns is at my home and I have no desire to go and fetch it.’
      His lips rose in that now familiar smile and he eyed her sideways. ‘I am merely trying to determine how he does it. From what I can gather there is a rhythm to it.’
      ‘Do you always study things that closely?’
      ‘When I’m intrigued by them, I do.’
      ‘And the risk of setting yourself on fire is intriguing?’
      ‘Determining how not to do it is more the thing.’
      He could set her body on fire with just a mere look which was unprecedented. He didn’t even have to say anything. She hadn’t experienced that before. Not even with Jonathan. How was it possible she was imagining the feel of this man’s lips on hers, when they barely knew one another?
      The sky was beginning to turn pink. Or maybe that was her. Heat spread up her neck to her cheeks.
      He leaned in, close to the edge of her bonnet, and lowered his voice to a deep whisper. ‘Whatever it is you are thinking, it has you blushing.’
      She gave him a chastising glare. ‘A gentleman should not comment on a woman’s blush. And how can you even notice it in this dim light?’
      ‘The kind juggler has provided me with enough light to see it and I am so glad he has.’
      ‘Perhaps you should consider not mentioning it again.’
      ‘Perhaps you should consider telling me what you were thinking.’
      ‘I am holding a rather sharp arrow, my lord,’ she teased.
      ‘And I’m holding an image in my head of what I’d like to do with that sharp tongue of yours.’
      If another gentleman had said those words to her, she would have slapped him. However, Lord Andrew’s comment didn’t feel threatening or leave her feeling as if she needed to scrub her body with soap. His deep whispered suggestion had her imagining kissing him and sliding her tongue over his, knowing the taste of his lips.
      ‘What are you thinking, woman? You’re practically crimson.’
      ‘You need to stop talking to me and go back to analysing how you can become the world’s finest torch juggler.’
      His low-throated laugh had her reluctantly smiling.
      ‘Very well, I will leave you to your thoughts, but if I require burn salve later     tonight, I shall lay the blame at your door.’
