A friend of mine came to me with the following passage hoping that i would know it. It does seem familiar to me, but i cannot place it. Can anyone help?

"There are certain looks, usually quite unintentional - or perhaps subconscious - that grab your attention and shake it fiercely. She sits, quite casually and with a certain elegance, and casts her gaze in your direction. A curious playfulness creeps its way across her visage, filled with both innocence and hunger in one, quick glimmer of her colourful eyes. And when this quick moment has passed, she'll turn with a haunting nonchalance, perhaps causing a lock of cascading brown tresses to brush over an exposed shoulder. But most of all, my friends, most of all, it is the laugh. That tiny giggle, like the tinkling of little bells. A sound that, in her youthful passion, she is not even aware she makes."
