Excerpt

e entirely--it will be because I have work for you. Do you understand? Work--hard work--dangerous work. It may mean your life in the end.

JARVIS. You are frank, anyway.

PRINCESS. It's a chance--and you have nothing to lose.

JARVIS. And if I agree?

PRINCESS. You will begin by taking the ancient feudal oath of my country.

JARVIS. Oath? Isn't my word good enough?

PRINCESS. You will pardon me if I insist.

JARVIS. Very well--I'll swear the blackest oath you can utter. Let's hear it.

PRINCESS. What's your name?

JARVIS. Jarvis.

PRINCESS. Your full name?

JARVIS. Warren Jarvis.

PRINCESS. Kneel, then, Warren of Jarvis. (JARVIS kneels on both knees.) No, not that way--on one knee.

JARVIS. I beg your pardon----

PRINCESS. Now repeat this oath: "I, Warren of Jarvis----"

JARVIS. "I, Warren of Jarvis----"

PRINCESS. "Señor of all the domains, fiefs, keeps and marshes of Warren of Kentucky----"

Kirsten Fullmer

When she isn't writing, Fullmer loves tinkering with all kinds of crafts, including scrapbooking, cross stitching, crocheting and sewing. As our author of the day, Fullmer chats with us about how she fell in love with the Shabby Chic style, why she picked a small town as the backdrop for her books and talks about her writing habits.
