Sample text:

"Who is that beautiful creature?" Lady Fiona Hollingsworth asked her theatre companion.

Reginald Barrington screwed in his quizzing glass and, following Fiona's gaze, stared at the actress on the stage below. "Ah, that would be Diane Foley. Lovely, is she not?"

"She certainly is."

Reggie’s head bent to hers, and he whispered. "Miss Foley's protector sits in the box opposite us."

Curious to see the lovely actress's "protector," Fiona directed her attention to the lone man in the box across from hers. He was an extremely handsome man in his early thirties, tall and dark and exceptionally well dressed.

Even were he not possessed of such striking good looks, the man's haughty air of bored arrogance would have commanded attention. Only once before had she seen such a man.
