Sample text:

London, spring, 1817

Lady Phoebe Summerville’s breath came in quick gasps as she burst through the heavy doors, her silk dress rustling loudly. She could feel the heat of her pursuer’s gaze on her back as she sprinted across the terrace, her heels clicking on the stone steps. Her heart thudded against her chest with each step, determination propelling her forward.

Behind her, Lord Owens’ voice echoed off the stone walls of Daphne and Alex’s grand home. She retreated into the shadows, her back pressed against the cool facade. Phoebe inhaled the cool night air as she peered into the darkness. It was hard to reconcile that she had once fancied Lord Owen’s. Now it was all she could do to escape him.

Upon their first meeting, he had seemed a dashing and honorable sort. They had danced twice and enjoyed their conversation, but it did not take long for her to realize he was stuffy and boorish, not to mention a bit overbearing.

She had gone out of her way to avoid him ever since and been rather successful until tonight. Phoebe sighed and glanced out across the night-shrouded garden.

The sound of shuffled footfalls echoed from above as Lord Owen called to her again, “Lady Phoebe, where have you gone?”

She held her breath and listened, praying he would soon give up and return to the masquerade. She adjusted her glittering mask, the long ostrich feather tickling her cheek. Why the devil had Daphne invited him? And how had he recognized her behind the mask? The dratted thing covered two-thirds of her face with plumes of feathers and jewels. And yet, Lord Owen had known her straight away.

She leaned a bit closer to the stairs, turning her ear upward toward the terrace and straining to hear the sounds above.
