Chapter One


Lady Aleece curtsied to her dance partner. Rising, she settled her gloved hand on his proffered arm. Although she would have preferred to grimace, from when he'd trod on her toes, she nevertheless graced him with a weak smile. She was secretly glad the waltz wasn't allowed yet at Almacks.
