This week, I return to my Regency paranormal romance WIP, A Woman of Proper Accomplishments. Rather than jumping around, I'm continuing shortly after the last AWOPA snippet, in which rich snob Jane Thornton, has insulted the heroine, Helena. Helena's friend, Cassandra, decides she's not going to stand by and let her friend get dissed so decides to bust some caps . . . oh well, maybe not quite that:
“That is most presumptuous, Jane Thornton," Cassandra said, her face scarlet.
“As are you, Cassandra Mitchell,” Jane said with a sneer.
Helena’s mother stepped forward, but at the sound of Lord Johnstone's shouting, turned her attention to the distant baron rather than the rude Jane.
“Let us quiet down.," Lord Johnston called out. "Lady Johnstone has an announcement.”
Jane smiled, curtsied once, and looked toward Lord Johnstone.
