Why This Must Be Read: "I cannot see your face, but I trust, sir, that you are my affianced husband? If not, I fear your lifespan will be sadly curtailed within a brief time. I have yet to convince my lord that his violent impulses should sometimes be controlled." This vignette is a continuation from the book, with spot-on character voices and the same wry tone and understated sense of humor as the original. I don't feel that Mary and Dominic spend nearly enough time together in the novel, so this short scene from the start of their actual relationship is just the sort of thing I love to read.
