CHAPTER ONE

"Handsome?" Lizbeth repeated. "Yes, I suppose he is handsome, but strong and cruel I should think, if he wants to be."
" You have seen him then?" Nanna enquired, and then gave a sudden cry. "And looking like you were just now, with your hair all over your shoulders and that dirty apron over your gown? Heavens, child, what must he have thought?"
" I care not what he thought," Lizbeth answered.
But she did! He had kissed her! She could still feel the sense of shock, the surprise and indignation which she had felt as his arms enfolded her. She had known the strength of him and then, before she could cry out or, it seemed to her, even breathe, his lips possessed hers.
Never before had she known the nearness of a man and suffered his touch. She would have had her mouth like iron to defy him, but her lips betrayed her. He was like a conqueror and she could not resist him.
His kiss was unlike anything she had imagined or dreamed. It seemed in some indefinable way to strip away all her pretences and leave her vulnerable and at his mercy. It was not only physically he conquered her, but spiritually, for he took something that had never been given before. She had been kissed! She was no longer an innocent, or as young as she had been this morning.
A kiss from a stranger and a veil was wrenched away from her eyes! She saw herself not as a wild, irresponsible girl, but as a woman-a woman with a depth of feeling she had hitherto never even suspected.
Lizbeth was silent as Nanna finished arranging her hair so that it was drawn back from her forehead and set demurely under a small velvet cap. Her dress of green velvet seemed to echo the colour of her eyes and made her skin very white as it was revealed by the low-cut bodice.
She looked demure and not without dignity as she came slowly into the Great Chamber where her father, stepmother, Phillida and Rodney Hawkhurst were assembled before supper. Rodney was looking at Phillida and did not at first notice Lizbetli's entrance ; and then, as Sir Harry turned towards her, he glanced up and recognized instantly the girl he had caught

hiding in the lilac bushes and whom he had kissed light-heartedly for spoiling his hat.
She walked towards him and he felt both embarrassed and amused.
" This is my daughter, Elizabeth," Sir Harry announced, and two green eyes were raised to Rodney's face.
He had the strangest feeling that this moment was important to him, though why and how he had not the slightest idea.
