The first love letter sent and received between lovers is always an occasion of import, and needs to be approached with both enthusiasm and necessary caution. A warm style must be achieved, but a delicate touch must also be employed~Too much and one exposes oneself. Too little and one does not expose one’s finer feelings enough.
And so this dilemma presented itself to Will Jellicoe and the object of his tenderest and most enthusiastic desire, Miss Antigone Preston, as was.
Here, dear readers, is their go of it~
“Captain, sir. I have a letter for you.”
The young midshipman stood upon Will Jellicoe’s quarterdeck with his hand outstretched, bearing within his none-too-clean grip a folded and sealed epistle.
“A letter?” Will asked, rather unnecessarily. As if he wasn’t at that moment looking at the damn thing with his own eyes. But his ship was in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, and they had not spoken to another vessel in days. And they had not met with a Royal Navy dispatch cutter for at least a week.
“It’s from Mrs. Jellicoe, sir.”
Ah. Well, that changed the complexion of the thing entirely. They had been so lately married that he had not never before had the opportunity to receive a letter from her. Something that must be marital pleasure began to warm his gut. “Thank you, Mr. Little. You may go.”
Will took up the missive, and the moment the boy’s back was turned he took a surreptitious sniff of the paper to find the barest delicate trace of Mrs. Jellicoe’s calendula flower scent. But it was enough.
He tore the seal open to read her handwriting, quick, decisive and effortlessly graceful, slanting across the page.
Ever and only yours ~

Shockingly brash and scandalously independent, the Reckless Brides are boldly rewriting the rules of love and marriage—one smitten bachelor at a time…
In the game of kiss and tell, there are no rules…
THE LADY IS A KNOCKOUT
Forced by her family into an engagement with a man she can never abide, Antigone Preston knows only a scandal will save her from a loveless marriage. But knocking a man down to the ballroom floor with her fists brings dangerous consequences. She may have ruined her reputation, but now she’s endangered her heart…
THE OFFICER IS A GENTLEMAN
The son of an earl and a career navy man, Captain William Jellicoe has no interest in the frivolities of London—and even less in the institution of marriage. But there’s something steering him toward Antigone. He has never met anyone as brazen and unconventional
as…himself. But will he risk it all for a woman who still has the breath of scandal hot on her lips?
