Phoebe tried to tell herself she was excited about the step she was
about to take. In truth, she felt positively ill. What had seemed a brilliant idea
when it had first occurred to her a month ago now felt like a terrible mistake.
She pressed a hand to her middle, wishing she’d refrained from eating
luncheon as her stomach roiled alarmingly.
“Are you well, my lady?” her maid asked from her seat across the
“Quite. Thank you.” She’d deliberately requested Fanny, one of the
housemaids, to accompany her rather than her lady’s maid. Rose knew her
too well. She would’ve asked questions Phoebe couldn’t answer and might
have convinced Phoebe not to go through with her plan.
That was something Phoebe couldn’t allow. Not when she was already at

action. If she didn’t step forward to implement her own plan, no one would
follow. She’d be letting down the entire group.
Most of all, she’d be letting down herself.
Phoebe offered her gloved hand to the footman, concerned the contents of
her stomach might come forth. She swallowed hard and stepped onto the
cobblestones, taking care not to look at the front door of Bolton House where
Anthony Stanhope resided.
She was no stranger to the Earl of Bolton’s home. She and her younger
sister, Amanda, had called upon Viola, his younger sister, who was closer in
age to Amanda, many times over the past few years and counted her as a dear
friend, though Viola wasn’t a member of the league. Neither Viola nor
Amanda shared a love for reading.
