Valley of the Shadow is available for pre-order! See details after the snippet.
While Kendryk and Gwynneth endure some tough times, things are going well for Janna and Braeden. Janna is pregnant, and as soon as they return to the capital they get married. Senta is the wife of one of Braeden’s officers and has been a kind of mother figure for Janna. Somewhat creatively punctuated.
Braeden helped Janna into the dress, then stood back to admire her. “You look perfect,” he said, “Senta will be so pleased.”
Janna laughed and took his arm. “What about you?”
“I’m very happy,” he said, grinning as he handed her into the carriage, then climbing in after her. It was warm inside, so they were a bit disheveled by the time they arrived at the little temple in the old city.
“You are supposed to wait until after.” Senta shook her head as she repaired Janna’s hair.
“That horse left the stable some time ago,” Braeden said, patting Janna’s bottom, though she couldn’t feel his hand through the voluminous skirts. It seemed neither one of them could stop smiling.
