Seven Years for a Duchess: Sweet Regency Romance Clean Short Stories
She could hear some commotion behind her, but didn’t turn to look. Each step carried her further from the Duke, and it also helped to ease her heart, which had started aching at the very sight of him. As she reached the bottom of the steps, she breathed a sigh of relief, and went to squeeze past the guests gathered in the lower hall. At that moment, she heard someone coming down the stairs quickly behind her. Some instinct in her made her heart beat faster, and she nearly tore someone away from their partner in her desperation to escape. She thought that she knew the voice behind her, and that could only mean one person. Who else would come running behind her?
