The Bridal Strain
Lady Emily #3.5
Lady Emily Ashton accepted Colin Hargreaves's proposal only after a significant amount of wooing, but what rational woman would refuse a man who deeds to her all the books in his library? Now, after a harrowing investigation in Vienna, they have arrived at Emily's villa on the Greek island of Santorini, and the time, at last, has come for them to marry.
THE BRIDAL STRAIN is a three thousand word short story in the bestselling Lady Emily series, coming between A FATAL WATZ and TEARS OF PEARL. The e-book edition also contains two short essays on writing historical fiction.
