“Smoldering eyes, I should say. Eyes like a pair of live coals.”

Oh, for Heaven’s sake. “Live coals glow orange. The gentleman’s eyes are brown.”

Will drew a sharp cold breath. This was a mood. That meant it would pass. He’d come safe to the other end of every mood before, and so would he do with this one.

Now she was the one to look away, down to where the edge of her windblown skirt still lingered about his boots like an emissary for the rest of her, a scout demonstrating how easily the gap between them might be bridged.

I was surprised how dark this story was. Will is an ex-soldier haunted by his experiences in the Napoleonic Wars. Lydia is surviving as a prostitute but planning for a better future. Together they decide that winning money through gambling is the answer to their problems, aided by Lydia's gifted memory and math skills. There's a lot of sadness in this tale, and I think I was too well aware of how things might realistically have ended for these characters to get swept up in the romance.
