Wealthy socialite Christine Harrison’s life seems perfect until the man she planned tomarry, Mr. Davenport, proposes to someone else. Heartbroken, Miss Harrison vowsnever to love again, and to distract herself, she sets out to rescue a fallen youngwoman. Little does she know that her journey will reveal more than she expected about her friends, her seemingly perfect life, and her own heart.
Christine breathed deeply, circling her arms around herself. As she stood among those high, stalwart cliffs, she formed a resolution. Their presence spoke to Christine once more, reminding her that she could change. She could be more steadfast in her desires. She determined then to look outward, toward others, and stop caring about herself and her status in life. She affirmed that day that she did not need high connections to validate her existence. She did not need a man to establish or promote her social standing. And perhaps most importantly, Christine resolved to never again let these base motives stand in her way of real and lasting relationships with the people around her.
After a half hour, Christine begrudgingly thought to herself, Well
done, Ivory, contrary to all previous misgivings. Christine had not yet
made out his character, but he seemed like a fine man—presenting
himself admirably on many fronts. He was not quite as well established
or attractive as Mr. Davenport, but Ivory seemed quite taken with him,
and if she really did not care about his income or standing, he might
just do the job credibly.
Happiness spread throughout her being, and she felt
so completely whole. The wet hem of her skirt and tear-stained bodice
of her dress held no chill against a heart so warm.
She had, in her evil persuasion, combined attraction with ultimatum
in the scariest form of alliance.
