Where has the week gone? I feel like I was just here seven days ago *snicker*
Lord George has helped Catherine onto his uber cute horse 'Buttons' and they should be on their way to Longbourn... or not

He was wedged against her so tight his voice resonated through her body and his essence, the sheer maleness of him surrounded her. The sensation was as much frightening as it was exciting. All her romanticized day dreams of Lord George Kerr having his arms around her did not come close to the real thing.
All too soon the thrill of having his arms around her subsided as with each rocking step Buttons took, pain spiraled across her ribs and it took all her concentration to take in shallow breaths.
"We're almost there, Miss Bennet, I can see a house through the break in the trees."
She lifted her gaze and almost wept at the sight of Longbourn. Both her mother and father exited the house to greet them, no doubt having been warned by a servant they were coming up the drive. She expected a full on assault by her mother, and was not disappointed.
"Whatever happened?" Mrs. Bennet's mouth gaped open at the sight of Katherine seated in front of Lord George, his arms around her in a familiar fashion.

And the saga continues next week.

    One can easily imagine Mrs. Bennett delivering a scorching lecture and Mr. Bennett being much quieter and reserved.

  4. You just know Mrs. Bennett is going to try to take advantage of the situation!

  5. I can just imagine what Mama will say next. Wedding bells?

  6. Excellent excerpt, Sue. I do imagine Mrs Bennet will be airing her views shortly
