I found this posted on Amazon Discussion and it has no replys but it got me interested so if anyone has any ideas on what book this could be let me know.
Okay, it's not much to go on,but its a memorable moment in the Regency.
I believe h is a servant or something, and hero is having tea with OW (other woman) when servant spills a drop of tea on the OW. She takes her cup and tosses the scalding mess on the servant. The heroine goes to the back and puts salve on servant's burnt chest.
Ring any bells?
