“What is your novel to be about?”
A strange kind of excitement filled Christopher. “I thought in the first novel, she could be a client of the inquiry agent and proves herself invaluable in solving the case. Of course, he thinks her frivolous to begin with, but, over the course of the novel, he realises she is more than what she seems and comes to rely upon her insight and counsel.”
Etta regarded him for the longest time, so long his stomach felt like lead. “It sounds interesting,” she finally said.
Relief tore through him, and he gave a cocky grin. “Of course it’s interesting. I shall write it.”
She rolled her eyes. “I should have known better than to think you would be serious for half a minute.”
Sobering, he said, “Would you read it? If you saw it in a shop, would you pick it up?”
He released the breath he hadn’t known he had taken. Her opinion mattered. It always had. In fact… “I should like it if you would consult on it.”
She blinked. “I beg your pardon.”
“I should like it if you would consult. Be my editor, as it were.” He warmed to the idea. “You were practically my editor on the first story anyway.”
“I beg your pardon?”
“Your comments.” She still looked utterly confused. “On the passages I included with the articles.”
“You mean those gothic scribbles you sent with the articles You actually applied my criticisms?”
Now she seemed shocked as well as confused. “Of course. You were correct, every time.”
Here was a sight he’d never thought he’d see. Etta Wilding-Marsh, stymied. “Will you be my consultant?”
She seemed to snap herself out of it. “I shall have to think on it.”
Something inside him dulled, but he swallowed it with a grin. “Don’t think too long. Others would clamour for the opportunity.”
“Then perhaps you should ask them.”
He merely continued to grin.
“I have to go,” she stammered. “Gwen—the duchess—is expecting me.”
“Of course,” he murmured.
She made to move past him only to hesitate. “You truly wish my opinion?”
A smile lit her face, blinding in its brilliance.
He sucked in his breath. Heart pounding, he nodded dumbly as she said another good-bye and left, glancing over her shoulder with another smile before disappearing around the corner.
Regaining his breath, he silently recounted the last few moments. He, apparently, was to write a series, and not just any series, but a detective series. Something he’d barely allowed himself to think of, he’d blurted out to Etta without a thought. And then, he’d asked her to help him with it. And she had smiled at him.
