This was just adorable and surprisingly funny. Kit and Julian were far too sweet. I'm usually not one for flowery prose, but Kit's romantic rants were just over the top enough for him to be poking a little fun at himself, and given the time period it feels more natural. "It's as if I'm a ship and you're my home port. I'm a snail and you're my shell. I'm an imp -- Well, you get the idea."
"Romance, adventure, excitement, and enough gossip to last them for years." What more could the sleepy fishing village of Urchin Cove (or me, for that matter) ask for?!
One inconsistency that annoyed me (cuz you know there's gotta be at least one!)
