When the beautiful but impoverished Fenella Hawke takes up the position of Companion to the elderly Dowager Duchess of Wyndlesham, she is unprepared for the hostile attitude of the current Duke. The handsome and arrogant Devlin Deverell suspects Fenella has secrets to hide. From the moment they meet, Devlin and Fenella experience an overpowering and frightening attraction. They try to fight their growing arousal, but find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other. However, when Lady Penelope Vane, Devlin’s extremely jealous mistress, discovers that Devlin’s attentions are wandering, she sets in motion a ruthless plot to discredit Fenella, with the help of her ally, the rakish Sir Marcus Solesby.

I remember one of Barbara Cartland's book with the hero and heroinne called Fenella and Peregrin. Maybe you were inspired by it?
I think this should probably be a new paragraph starting at "thus"

Unless she has extra toes (and I don't remember it having been mentioned), most cats only have eighteen toes; four on each back foot and five on each front one.
Did you pick his name (Devlin) just so you could give him this fantastic moniker? Because that's bloody awesome.

Dawn's rosy fingers. Anyone read Homer (the Greek one)? Really enjoying this.   Georgette Heyer would be proud of you.
