And it showed. He wasn’t unaware of his effect on those around him—for years it’d been this way. In fact, only a handful of people didn’t back down from him. One of whom was Amanda Sutherland, his mother—which was unfortunate, he thought, as he recalled this latest meaningless evening at the Sutherland London town house. He’d been about to leave for the night when she’d summoned him into her deliberately feminine sitting room. He didn’t have to guess what course the conversation would take and only wondered that it had taken her this long to approach him yet again.
Chancey, her father’s first mate, would say she had too much pluck for her own good. She supposed he’d be right, because she just couldn’t make herself be wary. Yet Sutherland didn’t look as though he’d hurt her. No, he looks like he wants to eat me for dinner. His gaze stroked her like a physical touch, and she shivered. Those eyes, gray and dark, could easily be called cruel, but they held no anger toward her. She convinced herself that she could detect the promise of something more in their cold depths.

She gave in to the temptation, only to find his eyes on her. Watch was too tame a word for what he did—his gaze roamed over her in a proprietary manner that defied her to walk away from him. But she would. Such an intriguing-looking man, despite his deeply lined countenance. What a waste, she mused acidly as she turned away.
