“You are still struggling after the events of the ball.”
William started to argue.
“That was not a question.”
William puffed up his chest as he met the duke’s stern gaze.
“I have a proposition for you. You are the prince. You can always say no.”
William paused. “What is it?”
“I would like you to come stay with my family out at our country estate. Give yourself time to recover. We’ll see to your studies, as Godfrey can attest, and there are lakes to swim in, horses to ride, and trees to climb.”
Words failed William. The offer was too good to be true.
