"Why, Miss Kittridge, I didn’t know you had dimples. How charming," he said, grasping her arm and pulling her close. He touched her cheek with his other hand, and she held her breath. She watched his intense green gaze move from her cheek to her mouth and wondered if there was another man on earth whose appearance could leave her so unsettled.
His bronzed hand moved to her arm and she was sure he could see her heart’s erratic pounding. He dropped his hand from her face and lightly pulled her to meet him as he raised himself off of the pillows.
His warm lips covered her own, and she felt like she would explode by the awareness of his body touching hers. Her mind raced with the knowledge that he was actually kissing her! She pulled back for the smallest instant and looked at him, sure he had made some sort of mistake.
He broke away with a sigh and whispered into her ear, "Miss Kittridge, I must apologize. Do forgive me."
In her flustered state, Charlotte could not think of a single thing to say. To occupy her shaking hands, she began unwrapping the bandage that was to go on his lordship’s leg.
"Perhaps it would be better for your father to wrap my leg, Miss Kittridge. I daresay not even a saint could be trusted in this condition. I am sorry."
She flew from the room, leaving behind the stiffened bandages, her pride, and the scene of her first kiss in all of her spinsterish seven-and-twenty years of existence.
