This is a short story which Milan wrote and entered into a writing contest before she published anything. The story is a historical that takes place at a ball where the wildly popular Countess Fraser encounters Damien Rathbourne, Earl of Coulter who believes her a fraud and intends to expose her as being nothing special. The two engage in a dance. This is a short vignette that only hints at these two characters, but has much of the vibrancy of Milan’s later works. It is early stuff and incomplete, but shows her potential.
