I'll share more from upcoming books soon, but today I thought I would give you a snippet from The Prince's Consort today. Amory and Philip have been attacked while on horseback. (Philip speaks first.)
“Are you all right?” he asked Amory.
“Fine.” But there was something in Amory’s voice.
“Amory. Tell me the truth.”
A pause lasting several breaths and then, “I really am fine. Don’t
worry about me.”
“What am I not worrying about?”
“One of the arrows grazed my arm, but I’m fine. I’m more concerned about the number of times I’ve been dumped off that horse lately.”
The laugh, short and strangled, was forced from Philip. “How bad is it?”
“Well, it’s embarrassing. Falling from one’s horse displays a complete lack of the dignity the prince’s husband should possess.”
