Excerpt:

He stepped away and said, “Duke, may I introduce Lady Cora Winfield?”

She glanced at Eastham’s face. He had turned watchful, the teasing gone. Cora had no idea what her face showed. Panic? She swallowed and schooled her features.

“Lady Cora, may I introduce Adam Douglas, the Duke of Blackdale?”

She curtseyed and the duke bowed, his gaze not leaving her face. “It is a pleasure to meet you, Lady Cora.”

His voice almost caused her to wobble. It was deep and rich—a beautiful voice. “Likewise,” she said. It came out breathy, barely audible.

Excerpts

Narrator 1: And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Cæsar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.

Narrator 2: And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
(Joseph leads the “donkey” with Mary on its back [or Joseph and Mary walk together] to the stage left side of the room.)

Narrator 1: And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; because he was of the house and lineage of David:
(Mary gets off the “donkey,” stretches her painful back, and sits.)

Narrator 2: To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. Narrator 1: And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
(Mary puts “baby” into the cradle and stares at him lovingly.)

Excerpt:

“You have to get me his number!” she declared.
“I’m not your fairy godmother,” I said.
“Come on, Lana, it’s not like I’m asking you to turn a pumpkin into a carriage. Wait!” she cried. “That’s it!”
“That’s what?”
“The kind of wedding you want.”
Ugh. What was the use of your best friend spilling beer on a fairly handsome stranger if it didn’t make her forget your previous conversation? I scowled, telling her without words, Let’s not do this, and with a glare she shouted back, Oh, we’re doing this!
“Fine,” I said, throwing my hands up. “What kind of wedding do I want?”
“You want to be a Disney bride! Bejeweled ball gown, Cinderella’s carriage, and his and hers mouse ears for the cake topper!”
“Not even close,” I said.
