Normally, I don't really enjoy short stories, but Ms. Darby created some characters that I quite enjoyed.
Caroline, Lady Ballister, is a widow. Marriage? Been there, done that. At the story's open, she is in a ballroom with her best friend Julia, discussing possible lovers. Julia offers up her brother, a man that Caroline had long been fascinated with.
For his part, Sutbridge has also been fascinated with Julia, but he wants marriage, not just a night in her bed. Can he convince her that there is more to a relationship than just sex?
