Six Sentence Sunday 10-14-12 - An Infamous Marriage

With my release date just three weeks a way, I'm continuing with another excerpt from An Infamous Marriage.  This week Elizabeth has just shocked Jack by bursting into laughter in the middle of a serious conversation, the most cordial they've had since their reunion, in which she assures him she's glad he didn't die of the wounds he received at the Battle of Queenston Heights:

“What,” he ground out, dropping her hand, “is so amusing?” 
With difficulty she calmed herself enough to speak. “We’ve established we don’t wish each other dead. I suppose it’s a beginning.”
He stared at her, blinked, then laughed along with her. “An excellent beginning.” 
Leave a comment, if you'd like, and stop by the Six Sentence Sunday website to check out other authors' excerpts.

    1. Naturally, it only gets better from there (except for the one bit toward the end where it temporarily gets worse, of course).
