In memory of Batwing
my nasty boy, my true miracle
for whom reams could be written
about the power of love
and the will to live,

—and—

In memory of Earl Grey
my sweet boy and manuscript cozy
a bright spirit
who shone so brilliantly
for too short a time.

I miss you, boys. I really miss you.

CONTENTS
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Thank you to my readers for their support and enduring the long waits. (It’s been a long wait for me, too!)

Thank you to Julie Czerneda, who deserves meadows full of irises for putting up with me, and Ruth Stuart also for listening, reading, and traveling.

Many thanks to the Peninsulans, past and present, for hearing the thing through: Chris Barstow, Annaliese Jakimides, Cynthia Thayer, David Fickett, and Paul Markosian; and welcome to Martha Tod Dudman.

As always, thank you to my editors, Betsy Wollheim and Debra Euler, and the whole DAW crew, as well as my agents, Anna Ghosh and Danny Baror.

Thank you to my web mage, MT O’Shaughnessy, for keeping up www.kristenbritain.com—
Baaah!
and Todd Edgar for assistance with the machine and some graphics stuff—
Meow!

Thank you to Donato Giancola for the gorgeous painting which graces the cover of this book.

There are a number of “characters” who taught me many lessons in life, and I’d like to acknowledge them here: Fox, Carefree, Tommy, Seymour, JackO, Roman, Virginia, and so many others. Most, if not all, are gone now, but forever remembered.

Thank you to those who offered support and information that have aided with the progress of this book (i.e. suturing and sidesaddle riding), and any of those whom I’ve failed to mention. I appreciate your help.

Finally, thank you to my personal managers, to whom a percentage of my earnings do go: Percy and Gryphon. You make my monitor hairy and ensure I am walked regularly. Couldn’t have done this without you guys.

Onward to the next book…
