Grace Wallflower


Charles considered Percy’s offer. Did he want to woo Grace? Did he want a wife? He was only twenty-four. “I don’t know.”

“Ha! I knew you had nothing to sway me.” At Charles’ confused stare, he said, “Books?”

“Right. Books. I do have something I think you’ll enjoy, but that’s not what I meant. I don’t know if I want to woo Grace Elliot.”

“Because you’re such a rake?”

“Be serious.”

Percy laughed. “If anyone was going to settle down and marry it would be you. Now that I think on it, Miss Elliot might be the perfect candidate.”
