Word and Deed

Book Cover
Rachel Rossano
“My task is not finished.”

Aware of my exposed feet growing numb, I crossed the flagstone path to retrieve my cast off slippers. “What more would Lord Silvaticus seek to learn? Whether or not I am pox-scarred or deformed? I assure you I stand whole and have all my limbs and digits.” I spread my fingers for emphasis. “They are straight and serve me well.”

Bryn Wolfe’s mouth twitched. “Nay, Silvaticus is concerned he should find a blade between his ribs on his wedding night.”

I laughed. “He fears a woman?” 

“He is a cautious man, not prone to impulse.”
