The Viscount – Chapter Four



The Viscount stepped off the Eurostar with his hand on Manon’s back in order to guide her through the crowds. He signaled to a porter to come and help with their bags and led the way to get a taxi. Manon was relatively unknown in London and it was a pleasure to be able to move about freely without fear of being recognized.

Nevertheless, she kept her sunglass on and moved furtively, which perhaps drew more attention to her than it might otherwise have had she acted more naturally.

I am the daughter of a symphony musician who was raised in upstate New York, and I simply breathe all things classical, be it music or 19th century literature (English and Russian). I married Sir Renaissance in New York City, and before I knew it, he had swept me up and brought me back home to his own country. So here we are. Three children, a rather ordinary life in a rather exceptional place. I am now ‘A Lady in France.’

  3. Go, Jennie, Go!

    Considering the snail’s pace I adopt when writing anything (least of all fiction) I continue to be impressed by your diligence…
    I’m still languishing in revisionland and you’re going to finish this book before I finish mine.

    YOU, my lady, work very hard at your craft.
