When the four of us, Julia Quinn, Laura Lee Guhrke, Stefanie Sloane, and I came up with the idea for writing Four Weddings and a Sixpence, based on the old wedding rhyme (I know, me and my rhymes!) I had to have “Something Borrowed.” I mean as soon as we started talking about it, I just HAD TO HAVE THAT ONE. I could see the entire story in my mind–a heroine who needs to borrow a betrothed and then has to face the fact . . .
Well, let the Tuesday Teaser tell you the rest:
“If you don’t mean to marry the earl—” Kate began just as they reached the second landing.
Cordelia came to a stop, catching hold of the railing. “Of course I don’t—”
She only wished she sounded more convincing. Because she didn’t want to get married.
She didn’t. Her gaze strayed down the stairs.
Kate made a grand harrumph, caught hold of her, and continued pulling her upstairs, lecturing as they went. “Then might I remind you that Lord Thornton isn’t your betrothed.”
“I know that,” Cordelia did her best to look outraged. “I haven’t the least idea what you are implying.”
She failed miserably, for Kate gave a regal shake of her head. “Cordelia, that man isn’t yours to dally with. And very soon he will need to be returned.”
“I am well aware of the situation,” Cordelia shot back. “I’m the one who came up with it.”
“Then I suggest you have a care before any more complications develop,” Kate replied, and continued up the stairs in a grand huff.
As if Cordelia needed to be told as much.
Something borrowed must always be returned.
