Newmarket, Suffolk, England A great swell of music rose from below, bursting over Lord Stephen Manning like a bubble and causing him to lengthen his stride. He was late. This is what came of dawdling in Newmarket all afternoon. Titchley Hall lay just outside the famous racing town, and Stephen had passed through on his way to the Earl of Toswick's house party. He'd attended the spring meetings before, of course, but today he'd been unable to resist stopping to see the courses, clipped and ready, and the Heath, lush, green and quiet after all those gorgeous thoroughbreds had finished exercising for the day. Everything had looked the same, and yet it all felt very different. Stephen had wandered the long, familiar stretch of High Street, trying to unearth a reason for his sense of displacement. Not until he found himself back on the Rowley Mile, mentally measuring the padding on a course post, did the realisation strikeNewmarket was the same. It was he who had changed. He had been discerning details and noticing incidentals that he never had beforebecause today he looked through new eyes. No longer was he just a spectator, another young blood of the ton seeking the excitement of the races and the thrill of risking his quarterly allowance. He was older now, and hopefully wiser, and, most importantlyhe was a man with all the burdens and responsibilities that came with owning his own racecourse. All the warmth of pride and accomplishment swept over him again as he reached Titchley's grand stairway. After two long years of work and sweat and sacrifice, he'd done it. He'd taken a neglected and broken-down estate and literally transformed it. Fincote Park lay waiting, pristine and challenging and bristling with potential. And empty. Impatient, Stephen brushed the thought away. He banished, too, the wispy, haunting image of his forlorn mother. Shame and despair had once been Fincote's main commodities, but those days were over now. That's exactly what all those months of labour had been about. He summoned instead the picture of Fincote's people, all the eager and hopeful faces that had seen him off. They were why he had come here. They were what made this house party the most important social event of his life. The marbled hall at the bottom of the stairs had emptied already. To the right echoed the clink of porcelain and the clatter of furniture as servants transformed a long parlour into a dining area. Stephen rounded the turn in a hurry and headed left instead, toward the brightly lit passage leading towards the ballroom. If luck was with him, then he'd only missed the opening set. 'Manning?' The call came from the door behind him, accompanied by a gust of cool, evening air. Stephen turned. 'Devil take me! It is you!' A reluctant smile turned abruptly into a wince as George Dunn, Viscount Landry, crossed the hall to pound him enthusiastically on the shoulder. 'By Godbut it is good to see you! How long has it been?
