WILLIAM—was only attending the season with his grandmother Lady
Rebecca Grayson to make her happy that she was fi nally going to be able to
help him make some good business connection and maybe new deals during
this season also. She had been telling him how most of town will only deal
with their own peerage and the social season was part of the way they will
accept new people into their group and since Lady Grayson is of the upper
most elite. She had told him that there was a reason that he would need some
of his own connections when dealing with all sorts of people.
WILLIAM—knew he'd have to tread lightly when dealing with the
young marriageable women that were out to fi nd a husband, he knew to be
careful when many of them were just looking for husband to replenish their
family's coff ers to what they had once been, love never factored into the deal.
He knew a few people who had entered into these kinds of arrangements
and he hasn't seen anyone it made happy, so it was no surprise that he had
decided to only marry for a love match he wouldn't have his wife hating him
before she ever knew him. When he married it would be with the woman
of his choosing not to someone who tried to trap him. He wanted a happy
loving wife and happy children who knew they were loved as well. He knew
he'd have to be careful when dealing with the young husband hunting young
women as well as their mothers.
SHAWNA—was a nervous wreck as she walks down the stairs into the
ballroom by herself to be formally introduced she was grateful that Jeanie was
staying as close as she could. As she walked down the steps her eyes caught
and held with the most handsomest man she had ever seen, his eyes were
the bluest she had ever seen she knew she could lose herself in them, had
she stopped moving she wasn't sure all she knew was this man was making
her feel things she had never felt anything like it before. Jeanie cleared her
throat bringing her back to the present.
William was feeling just as much himself, as he held her gaze, as she
descended the remaining stairs he wasn't sure if it was destine or destiny, but
he knew in them moments he had to make her his.
