When they were unsure of their path in the world, they only had their love to show them the way.
An herbalist and free woman of color, Kindred Twain and Lelaheo/Cassian Harkness, an Oneida Indian, had been inseparable since childhood, so it was no surprise to anyone when their childhood bond blossomed into love as they grew into adulthood. Neither suspected when they agreed to wait to wed until Lelaheo had completed his medical studies in Europe that they were poised on the eve of the American Revolution, or that a young British miss named Adeline would threaten to tear them apart forever.

“How did you meet Chris Phantom?”

Nash looked startled for a moment, then regained his composure. “He told you about me.”

“Sonia tell you that?”
“She could have.”
“Oh. Did she tell you she wanted to watch me and Joshua go at it?”
“Ah, no. She left out that part.”
“Bet she did,” Casey said. He worked his way over to the chair. He wasn’t sure how his legs managed to hold him steady.
“So shall we start over? I ask one question, and you answer, and stop trying to fuck with my head. You’re good at it.”
Casey smiled. “I’m the Master.”
