Olivia Discovers the Truth

After what happened between Sable and him before dinner at the mansion last night, he knew that it was pointless and hopeless trying to forget her with another woman. And it wasn't fair to Olivia.

His Conviction

"It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such immorality as is not even named among the Gentiles, that a man has his father’s wife. But you are arrogant.

Dinner and a Carriage Ride

I'm on the subway on my way to meet Maxime. He's taking me to lunch at Tribeca Grill, a restaurant co-owned by Robert De Niro. I so excited that I'm going to be seeing Maxime again.

The Meeting

She watched Mr. Falconer as he sat there, proud upon the magnificent steed, her heart pounding against her ribs.  Face flushed, she waited with bated breath to see if he would even notice that she was there.  It was by no accident that she was walking through this part of the forest.  She had come …
