I'm starting in the middle, though, with All Things Returned, the third novella of the Sweet Lenora Series. There is method to my madness--I'm celebrating this novella, because it recently came in first place in the colonial/Civil War/western category of Hearts Through Romance's Romancing the Novel Contest.
Readers, myself included, love a satisfying ending. My books almost always end happily--if not forever after, at least for now. Even though Anton and Lenora Boudreaux, the characters whose love story is at the heart of this series, will have more trials to face in Sweet Auralie, the last book of the series, they are content in each other at the end of this novella.
“I should like that a good deal.”
“In the meanwhile, Mrs. Boudreaux, I should like to spend the day in my wife’s company.”
“Would you? What shall we do?”
“Make up for lost time,” Anton said, before putting his lips to mine.
