“James Fitzroy, will you do me the honor of becoming my husband?” Her voice was now clear and steady. “Or not?”
He went still. “I beg your pardon?”
She removed her stiff hand from his lapel. “It’s simple enough, isn’t it? You and I have been ordered by the Prince Regent to find spouses, and I am asking if you would like to marry”—she lowered her voice—“me.”
His mind restarted.
She rushed on. “It would solve so many problems, no? Kill two crows with one—oh, never mind the analogy.” She stopped. “So shall we . . . ?”
He stared at her.
“Marry?” Her voice was now a whisper.
“My dear, why ever would you choose someone twice your age? Why, I could be your father.”
Her faced flushed. “You were twelve when I was born. I highly doubt you could sire children at that age.”
