She gave Sir Rufus a bright and meaningless smile. ’ That was a Caro ploy, Elizabeth realised with an inner wince of guilt; there was nothing that a man enjoyed more, her twenty-year-old sister had assured her conspiratorially on one occasion, than the opportunity to talk about himself and how very important he was.
