Olivia had a well-deserved raging headache when Hannish carried her breakfast in on a tray, yet she wasn't about to let that stop her. "Are you not the most handsome maid I have yet to see? She sat up, stretched and let her sleeping gown expose the upper half of her bosom. "I need a maid to dress me, or shall you do it?" Before he could answer, Olivia slipped out of bed, untied the strings to her gown, lifted it over her head and tossed it away.

He tried not to look upon her nakedness as he set the tray on the table. "You are leaving this morning."

"Am I never to be forgiven?" she pouted.

He ignored her, picked up her sleeping gown and handed it to her. "It may take a week or two, but I will forgive you in time."

Her eyes instantly lit up. "Truly?"

"Truly. I wish you to go back to Scotland and prepare for my return. I shall come in time for the rest of the season. You do still have my formal clothing, do you not?"

"Of course I do. They will need cleaning and you are right. I shall need time for the alterations on my new gowns." She dropped the sleeping gown and tried to go into his arms. Again, he stopped her. "There is no time for that now. I reserved a seat for you on the afternoon train."
