Tears sprang to Rosalind’s eyes as she returned the embrace. “Farewell, Abigail. I shall never forget you, either.”

Hand in hand, Shadow and Rosalind silently walked down the path that led away from the Corwins’ property. When they reached the edge of the woods, Rosalind turned to look back at the house. The sun was just beginning to rise from behind it and the faint buzz of voices could be heard from inside. She knew that tongues would be wagging about this night’s shocking turn of events for weeks to come.

Taking a deep breath, she tore her gaze from the house. From this moment on, she thought, her life as she had known it, no longer would exist. She was about to enter an entirely new world – Shadow’s world – where nothing would be familiar to her – where she might always feel like a stranger.

First, however, Rosalind decided, it was imperative that she and Shadow visit her mother and explain everything that had occurred – most especially that her wedding to Nathaniel was not going to take place – before she heard the news from someone else. Rosalind also was eager for her mother and sisters to meet the man who had won her heart.

She felt Shadow’s hands on her shoulders, turning her to face him. “Having second thoughts?” he softly inquired.

Rosalind’s eyes swept over his dark, inquiring eyes and his perfectly formed mouth. Her heart thumped in her chest and her pulse quickened as a wave of the most intense love and desire she had ever felt coursed through her.

She smiled up at him. “None whatsoever.”
