  • "... the Vicomte sneezed directly into my bosom with considerable vigor.

    I shrieked.

    'You disgusting man!' I said, and walloped him across the face with my closed fan.

    The Vicomte staggered back, eyes watering. He tripped over my size-nine shoes, which lay on the floor, and fell headlong into the arms of Jamie, who was standing in the doorway....

    'Well, you did attract a certain amount of notice,' I said at last.

    'Bah,' he said. 'The salaud's lucky I didna tear off his head and make him swallow it.'"
