Her heart jumped. Through the crowd she saw a tall man dressed in an impeccably tailored suit remove his overcoat, revealing a long, lean body. She immediately recognized Ian Noble. Her gaze lingered on the elegant black overcoat draped over his arm.
The random thought hit her brain that while the black coat was right, the suit was all wrong. Her observation made no sense whatsoever. What else would a businessman who was the scion of a minor branch of the British monarchy wear?
One of the men who had entered with him reached to take his coat, but he shook his head once. Apparently, the enigmatic Mr. Noble now. She took a sip of club soda and watched as Noble spoke tersely on a cell phone while two men stood nearby, his overcoat remaining slung in the crook of his arm in readiness for a quick getaway.
The subtle slant of his mouth told her he was irritated. For some reason, this all-too-human display of emotion relaxed her a little. Odd that such a distinctive, sophisticated man would become an icon for a tech-savvy, T-shirt-wearing generation. He looked to be thirtyish. Everything he touched turned to gold, apparently. Because he was Ian Noble. He could do anything he damn well pleased. It somehow helped to think he was arrogant and unlikeable. Yes, he was her benefactor, but like artists throughout history, Francesca had a healthy dose of distrust for the patron shelling out the money.
Sadly, all starving artists needed their Ian Nobles. Most importantly to Francesca, she would be awarded a hundred thousand dollars, something she could sorely use as a struggling master of fine arts graduate student. Lin magically materialized a young African American woman named Zoe Charon to converse with Francesca in her absence.
Lin, Zoe, and just about every person at the reception in her honor were appareled in the height of sophisticated, sleek fashion.
She learned Zoe was an assistant manager for Noble Enterprises, in a department called Imagetronics. What the hell was that? Francesca wondered distractedly as she nodded in polite interest, her gaze flickering again toward the front of the restaurant.
A few seconds later, a detached, bored expression settled on his features. He shook his head once and glanced at his watch. This cocktail party in her honor had been one of the onerous activities that accompanied the winning of the commission.
Francesca joined her. For a moment they were just two young women giggling over the most handsome man at the party. Which Ian Noble was, Francesca conceded. Forget the party. She turned. A hot, heavy sensation expanded in her belly. Francesca experienced a ridiculous urge to run. Zoe was more practiced in the art of social elegance than Francesca, however.
By the time Noble reached them, all traces of the giggling girl were gone and in their place stood a contained, beautiful woman. Noble, good evening. They flicked off Francesca for a split second. She managed to suck some air into her lungs during the reprieve.
I work in Imagetronics.

He paused in the action of loosing the straps of the hands-free vibrator. He winced when he heard the raspy sound of her voice. Was everything all right? You once again surpassed my expectations. He looked at her, determinedly ignoring her flagrant beauty and the confused expression in her dark eyes. Still, no matter how sharp the sting, he started to walk out of the room. He stopped abruptly and turned, his control faltering.
