William Chesterton, the Earl of Chester, might be the perfect gentleman, but his feelings for Constance Bridgewater are anything but gentlemanly. Constance Bridgewater, the daughter of the late Earl of Bridgewater, might be the perfect lady, but her feelings for the Earl of Chester are anything but ladylike. They both know that if they were together, everything would be just perfect.
So what is keeping them apart?

“Sarah, you always hear the best gossip.”
“What?” Sarah’s eyes rounded, then she grinned. “Yes, I do.”
“What do you know about where gentlemen go after the parties break up?”
Sarah’s brows drew together. “What do you mean?”
“Titled gentlemen can’t just . . . relax with young ladies like us, can they?”
“No, they usually head off to their clubs.”
Constance shook her head. “No, not for cards and cigars. For relaxation.”
She raised her brows to get her point across. Sarah blinked, then gasped.
“You mean pleasure?” she asked.
“Yes, but keep your voice down. If my mother were to learn of my curiosity, I’d never see the light of day again.”
“Too true.” Sarah leaned back, tapping her foot as she seemed to consider the subject. “I know they go to public houses. For ale and . . . companionship.”
“How do you know that?”
“Young Lord Palmer, the one now quite smitten with Elizabeth Talbot, lamented how her brother and his friends never invited him along to their favorite pub.”
“Oh.” Constance imagined Lord Leed and the others wouldn’t want the boy tagging along on their adventures. “Did he say which public house?”
Sarah shook her head. “Just its location.”
Constance clasped her hands. “We’ll go there tonight.”
“What?” Sarah cried, sitting up straight. “You can’t be serious.”
“I need to know some things, Sarah. I will not be kept in the dark when my very future happiness might depend on gaining that knowledge.”
“I admit I’m curious as well,” Sarah said. “I’ll call for you in my carriage around eight. Tell your mother you don’t feel up to the bashes tonight and I’ll do likewise. I’ll tell my mother I’m spending the night here with you.”
“Should the sisters compare notes, Sarah? What then?”
Sarah grinned, and Constance knew she’d chosen the perfect co-conspirator. “But I will spend the night here with you, Constance. Just after our little sojourn into the less-than-proper part of the city. I’ll have my driver park around back in the mews.”
Constance felt a bubble of anticipation rise in her chest. She would learn something tonight, all right. Once armed with that knowledge, she would make William see they were meant to be together, and for more than the length of a dance or dalliance.
