Seven years later, the army had hardened him from the shy scholar he once was, and he knew just what he needed in a bride: She must be quiet, dignified, intelligent, and above all, have no illusions of marrying for affection. Allowing himself to taste the forbidden fruit of Marisa's desire had proved much too dangerous.
