Kent, England. Late summer, You cannot make me! It will not take long and I fear he will take no notice of me. He turned sharply and let out a soft expletive, his face tensed in pain. Moving more cautiously, he flexed his leg carefully, supporting himself with his cane. His sudden pallor gradually disappeared as the pain ebbed slowly away.

Jack Carstairs had done enough waiting. It had been bad enough being closed up in a carriage for hours upon end to get here He opened the French doors on to the terrace and stepped outside into the cool, fresh air, and was immediately rewarded by the sweet, melodic tones of his beloved. Jack stepped forward impatiently. Three years, and now the waiting was at an end. In just minutes he would hold her in his arms again, and the nightmare would be over.

He limped eagerly towards the sound of the voices coming from the open French windows further along the terrace. I do not wish to see him. Jack had never heard it so before.

He had received a letter full of sweetness and love from Julia, only a month ago, just before he was wounded. Months after the event, as was all mail received on the Peninsula. The lovely, well-remembered voice became more petulant, almost childish. After all, he has been at war and war changes a man. I cannot bear even to look at him, with his leg sticking out in that peculiar-looking way.

It would have been better if he had died than to come back like that. You told me yourself his father left him nothing. I cannot marry a pauper. And, in any case, he can barely walk without falling over, so you can be very sure that he will never dance with me again as he used to. She stamped her foot again, angry at being deprived of all she had expected. I am glad now that you would not allow us to announce the betrothal formally, though I thought you monstrous cruel at the time.

His face white and grim, he drew back the draperies which had concealed him and stepped into the room. There was a small flurry as the two absorbed what he might have heard. There was no telling how long he had been outside.

I think this had a lot to do with both characters still being very sympathetic underneath the armor of their obstinacy. The author gives a lot of insights into why they think the things they do about each other, which in context, made a lot of sense to me. I still felt like shaking both of them on occasion though, because most their problems boiled down to a lack of communication and sheer stubbornness on both their parts. Sometimes their quarrels are laugh-out-loud funny, sometimes they are merely heated disagreements, and still other times they actually say things that are emotionally hurtful, occasionally deliberately although usually not. Whatever they happened to be wrangling over though, it all seemed to be a carefully choreographed dance to keep each other close while still holding each other at arms length and stubbornly denying their feelings. Although there were times that I wished that one or the other would lighten up a little, I strangely still understood them for the most part which is how I know that this novel was so well-written. He was severely wounded during the Peninsular Wars and came home with his once handsome face now seriously scarred and a bum leg that prevents him from dancing or riding.
