Woo’d in Haste releases today and I’m so happy for this little novella to be out in the world. In two more weeks, its companion novella, Wed at Leisure will join it, and while they stand alone, they definitely work best together.
For those of you who are Shakespeare fans, you’ll recognize these titles as having been co-opted from Katharina’s speech in The Taming of the Shrew:
No shame but mine: I must, forsooth, be forced
To give my hand opposed against my heart
Unto a mad-brain rudesby full of spleen;
Who woo’d in haste and means to wed at leisure.
One interesting effect of keeping the original spelling of wooed, is that from a distance, or at a quick glance, it looks an awful lot like wood. Cue sophomoric jokes.
But it’s a romance, so I can assure you there is wooing a plenty in these novellas. As for the other, I can attest to several leafy, shade and privacy providing trees!
And if you’ve read the stories, please consider leaving a review!
