Grey’s Lady

©Copyright Natasha Blackthorne 2014, 2011

“Pardon me, madam, but do you have some question about investing in a privateer venture?”

“Oh, no…” Her small yet lush mouth formed the most appealing O as she paused over the word.

All the ways in which that mouth could be employed— He pulled his attention away from those lips and met her eyes. “No?”

“No, they answered all my questions in the lecture.”

He frowned. “But how could they have? You came in after the part about investing.”

“I didn’t really have any particular questions. I come to all the lectures here.” She glanced at the chalkboard on the opposite wall where the lecturers were posted. “You are Mr. Asahel de Grijs Sexton of New York?”

“At your service.”

“Your middle name, de Grijs, it means gray?”

“Yes. It’s Dutch.” It had been his mother’s maiden name.

“And you’re here to invest in privateering voyages for the expected war?” She took hold of the curtain’s thick, gold, braided cord.

“I own some ships and take on investors. I also invest in other voyages. It’s a numbers game for safety.”

“Hmm—” her gaze warmed “—gray, like your eyes.” Her soft, pink lips spread into a smile, showing small, even pearly white teeth. The first completely sincere smile she’d gifted him with. Tropical sunshine in the midst of the gloomy day.

She gave a soft sigh—no, it was more like a moan. A lush bedroom sound which made his lower belly tighten. “Well, I was wondering…” Her fingers caressed up and down the braided cord in a way that could only be described as suggestive. Sinfully so. Right here in the bookstore.

A tide of lust like he’d never felt before boiled in his blood and stiffened his cock.

“I—I was wondering…” Her fingers trailed one last time before she dropped the cord.

“Yes, madam?” The steadiness of his voice amazed him.

“It’s miss,” she said, a bit breathless.

“Yes, miss?” he said, more impatiently this time.

Now she wouldn’t meet his eyes. A slight rose tint spread over her cheeks.

“What can I do for you?” he asked, trying to soften the hard edge of frustration in his tone.

“Could you—” She drew her lashes lower yet as her lips spread in another slow, sensual smile. “Would you be so kind as to give me a ride in your carriage?”

The inflection in her voice gave no doubt as to what kind of ride she meant.

Good God. What a bold little minx.

He definitely should not accept. For years now, he’d held to a steadfast rule against dallying with women under thirty. They could prove so troublesome. And this particular young woman seemed so…irregular, such an odd air of boldness contradicted by an awkward ingenuousness. A little recklessness there, too. In any case, he already kept a satisfactory mistress here in Philadelphia.

He couldn’t tolerate complications in his personal life.

The shimmering beauty of her eyes seemed to dim and composure seemed to falter, as though a lovely flower were wilting for lack of water and sunlight. As though she sensed his forthcoming rejection.

Did it matter so much to her then?

His heart pounded into a galloping beat. A heady thrill that could not be said to be wholly carnal. A sense of arousal like he’d not known in years. He craved to experience this peculiar, audacious girl.

And what true gentleman could disappoint a lady? He offered his arm. “Come then.”

Grey’s Lady by Natasha Blackthorne

She wanted just one naughty carriage

ride…

Beth McConnel has a secret. Sometimes in the afternoon, she escapes the drudgery of her family’s shop and seduces wealthy gentlemen. One encounter is all Beth allows. She must leave them burning.

When she boldly seduces Grey Sexton, a powerful shipping magnate, Beth finds his ice-over-fire combination of ironclad self-control and sensual indulgence too tempting to resist. Surely, one or two more clandestine trysts wouldn’t hurt?

But Grey Sexton demands more. His possessive determination to own her, body and soul, threatens to expose her erotic life. To give into his demands means losing her good name and her place in her brother’s home…everything she holds dear. She must turn away, for poor girls with no family connections aren’t allowed to trust their hearts to a gentleman
