A romance in a tiny Scottish border village at last gives way to a wedding just as the old year gives over to the new. This short story, the second in the Lord and Lady Baugham series, bridges Twixt Two Equal Armies and its sequel, The West Yet Glimmers, by chronicling a most rewarding honeymoon at Clyne Cottage and how, afterwards, the newly-weds successfully managed to postpone further domestic obligations by turning east instead of west at a crucial crossroads, ending up on the doorstep of Pemberley House in Derbyshire!

This is the story of how Love Then Begins.
