“Have we met before?” As the gleam in Grant’s eyes suddenly shifted from seduction to speculation, Juliet instinctively reached for her knife. She was fairly certain he didn’t recognize her – surely he would have done something by now if he had – but she wasn’t about to put her fate to chance.
“I am afraid not, sir. I am certain I would remember meeting someone as handsome as yourself.” Her lashes fluttered even as her hand slipped beneath the folds of her cloak and closed around the hilt of her dagger. If she could take him by surprise she had a chance at escaping. But she did not have the luxury of hesitation. If she was going to do something, she needed to do it now. The second he recognized her it would be too late. He’d have her wrists in shackles and her arse sitting in the magistrate’s office before she could blink twice.
With her pulse thrumming in her ears, she started to draw out her knife…
“I suppose you’re right. I would never forget a face like yours.” One emerald eye flashed in a wink, and once again her belly fluttered. She bit back a frown. Maybe she was coming down with something. Her friend Sam had been sick as a dog for the past two weeks. But if that were true, why did she only feel odd when she was around Grant?
Wonderful, she thought darkly. He’s probably diseased.
“Let me accompany you to your carriage,” he said, continuing to play the knight in shining armour. “Young ladies such as yourself should not be walking alone, even in this part of town.”
With silent sigh of relief, she released the knife and clasped her hands together. Truth be told she hadn’t really wanted to hurt him. Not because she felt anything for him. That would be ridiculous. It simply wouldn’t be practical to stab him within spitting distance of Bow Street, and she was nothing if not practical.
Most of the time.
“If women are incapable of opening doors for themselves or walking down a street without a man by their side, what are they capable of?” she challenged, arching a brow.
A wickedly rakish grin tugged his mouth to the side. “An excellent question. Off the top of my head, I can think of nearly half a dozen things a woman is very capable of.” His voice lowered to a husky whisper. “And she wouldn’t even have to leave the bedroom to accomplish them.”
