I'm not quite finished with this section, but I popped in to say that I loved the playful scene with Joanna and Llewelyn before John walks in to their bedchamber.  The teasing seemed so genuine and not forced.  Gratuitous humor can be as grating as gratuitous sex, but the spots of humor throughout this book flow very naturally and don't have any of the slap-stick feel that forced humor has.  This whole scene had me giggling.

Yes she is!

I finished this section.  It's a sad day when a Daddy's girl realizes that Daddy isn't Prince Charming.  Been there done that.
