“BIRDIE, come down out of that tree.” Silas Winborne, Earl of Hawke,
frowned up at his best friend’s sister who was attempting to hide from him
amid the apple trees dotting Brightwood Hall’s park on this scorching
summer’s day and doing a dismal job of it. “You know you cannot avoid
Perhaps it was the heat that had Hawke out of sorts, for it was barely ten
o’clock in the morning and already the air was unpleasantly stifling and
damp. All he wanted to do was shed his clothes and dive into the cool, crystal
waters of the river that flowed behind his friend’s house.
But that enjoyment was for later.
Right now, he had to deal with Lady Mariah Wren Chesterfield, whom he
had dubbed Birdie years ago and the pet name seemed to have stuck since
everyone called her that now. He had to get the stubborn hellion down out of
“I can see you plain as day, you little nuisance.” Her mass of copper curls
stood out amid the green foliage and her long legs dangled off one of the tall
branches. “Must I climb up after you?”
“Don’t be daft, Hawke,” she called down from her perch. “We’ll both fall
and one of us is likely to break a bone. Hopefully, it will be you. Then you

She tossed an apple at him, hitting him on the shoulder, although he was
certain she meant to hit his head instead.
She was almost twenty and doing her best to avoid the London marriage
mart. Not that he blamed her for wanting to avoid that crushing meat display.
But what was she to do with the rest of her life if she did not marry? Was it
her wish to live as an appendage to her brother and his wife? Well, Grant was
not yet married.
Nor was he, for that matter.
Thank The Graces.
He could hardly manage his earldom which was teetering on the edge of
ruin thanks to his father’s wastrel habits, and could not imagine adding a wife
to his burdens, especially one as contrary as Grant’s little sister.
“I’ll strike a deal with you, Hawke. I will marry whenever you marry. I
think it is eminently fair. Why should I be the only one pushed forward when
you and Grant are eight and twenty and have titles attached to your names? It
seems to me, you ought to be the ones to set the example for me and wed.”
“This isn’t about your brother or me. It is about getting you properly
settled while you are in your prime and able to attract some unsuspecting sod
who will love you to distraction.”
