  1. My favourite, Ulysses – the homeless, tortured little mongrel dog – brought out the best in Arabella Tallant and Robert Beaumaris. Besides Jemmy (the much abused chimney-climbing urchin), Ulysses was one of the major catalysts in the budding romance between Arabella and Mr Beaumaris. [Chapter IX introduced Ulysses.]

  2. Bouncer, Nicholas Carlyon’s devoted and protective half-lurcher, half-mastiff dog (from The Reluctant Widow) deserves to be included on the list of favourite pets.

    1. Who could forget the Balichustan Hound? That whole sequence in Frederica makes me laugh out loud.
