Honoria and Vincent have known each other since childhood but its been 8 years since she's seen him (I like that they already know each other). Now that he's back in London, she wants him badly - goes as far as to blackmailing him with keeping a secret of his in return for the next 2 weeks, he must kiss her, touch her and whatnot but keeping her virginity intact. She wants a taste of passion, he doesnt want marriage (he wants to go back to Egypt) but agrees only because he badly wants to kiss and touch her anyway. Of course, they get extremely close and when things gets to far, Vincent does try to do the honorable thing but modern thinking Honoria tries to dissuade him. This is where I got upset though thankfully they talked it through and things were resolved quickly but Im done with men starting out the story not wanting to marry just for the sake of not marrying and the women saying no to a marriage proposal when they are no longer virgins as if it was a common thought in those days! Also i didnt feel Vincent was in love as more as in lust with her. Nonetheless I was sighing at many of the things he was telling her and despite my minor complains, I did enjoy this short story.
