the memory of the humiliation he'd suffered when she snubbed him on

it was strange how, in spite of the fact that he hated her, he couldn't
help thinking of her, of her deep dark eyes like pools of light and shadow,
of her lustrous hair and her soft, provocative lips.
Lili, for her part, was frightened. Errol was the first man she'd ever met who had snubbed her. It wouldn't have been so horrible if she hadn't made it quite clear to him that she found him attractive.
That invitation to dine with her had obviously been a mistake. No doubt, she thought bitterly, Errol was pursued by half the women in Hollywood, and he thought of her as just another girl. How she hated these men that the women all made a fuss about!
She made up her mind she wouldn't give him another chance to snub her.
