CHAPTER ONE 1860
“You will take that back at once, de Lamerie!” The Earl of Wentworth glowered across the green card table as he slammed down his glass of brandy on the rosewood surface. The Frenchman stayed impassive. He was a proud scio n of ancient noble Huguenot blood whose family had not escaped the tyr anny of a Catholic France to be dictated to by a mere English Lord. He merely shrugged his shoulders in an irritating f ashion and pursed his lips. “I will not – it is very clear to me that these car ds are marked,” he answered sardonically. The Earl’s handsome face grew crimson under his bla ck hair and his dark eyes flashed dangerously. On the other side of the table, his best friend, Si r Thomas Babbington set down his cards and spoke softly, “Come now, Wentworth. There has obviously been some misunderstanding. I think all the Comte is trying to say is that he would like a new deck.” He laid his hand on the Earl’s arm to restrain him as he could see that his friend’s temper was near to flashpoint. The Earl wa s as fiery as Sir Thomas was placid and they compensated for each other’s shortc omings. What the Earl lacked in restraint, he made up for i n artistic ability. His paintings were lauded everywhere and he wrote sensi tive and thoughtful verse. “Oh, you Englishmen, you cannot shoulder a mere cri ticism without taking offence!” spat Comte de Lamerie, dismissively. “It’ s I who should be upset – you are clearly cheating and then you attempt to put th e blame on me!” The Earl arose like a striking python from his chai r, as Sir Thomas tried at once to diffuse the situation. “Come, gentlemen. Let’s leave the game and have ano ther drink. There’s a fine Armagnac we’ve yet to try.” The Comte’s face took on a sour expression. “You are asking me to back down? Pah! Never!” He slumped back in his chair and clutched his cards close to his chest, muttering something in French under his breath that the Earl evidently understood. “Take that back, you blasted Frenchie!” he shouted. “I didn’t spend a year in France to be oblivious to your tawdry insults!” “Then it’s a great pity you did not learn more from us,” drawled the Comte, “where are your famous English manners and sense of fair play?” That was enough to incense the Earl, as he leapt ov er the table and grabbed the Comte by his cravat. “You damned Frenchie dog!” he howled, his eyes leve l with the Comte’s. “Wentworth! Please!” pleaded Sir Thomas. “He has – insulted me for the last time!” choked the Comte, attempting to prise the Ea rl’s vice-like grip away from his neck. “Richard!” Sir Thomas was beside himself. He had often seen his friend lose his temper and, since his father had died last year, he had been even more
