Mild spoilers for Captain Vorpatril's Alliance, which is basically a straight up romance (in spaaaaace) and thus exceedingly pleasing to me:

BFF Robyn: So should I cave and get the eARC?
Me: YES. IT IS ALL HILARIOUS ANTICS AND FAMILY POLITICS AND DO YOU MIND A MILD SPOILER?
BFF Robyn: A miiiild one is okay.
Me: MARRIAGE. OF. CONVENIENCE.
BFF Robyn: SOLD.

Basically, everything is awesome except (BIGGER SPOILER):

I do wish Byerly had ended up with a man.

Baen offers up eARCs for purchasing by the general public. Thus: http://www.baenebooks.com/p-1678-captain-vorpatrils-alliance-earc.aspx

If you already knew that, never mind! But I thought from the phrasing of your comment that you might think people were talking about ARCs they had received in the traditional freebie in the mail, limited number on offer sort of way.

::clicks through as she totally doesn't care about getting spoiled:: :D

Aw, MAN. I was kinda hoping the Vorkosigan-verse was pretty much done with, so that I could cling to my personal fanon that By and Ivan would end up together, especially since Ivan so totally missed the boat with Dono.

Oh well. I'll still buy it.

MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCE!??!??!

*drops everything and rushes out to buy it*

Er, although I suppose I should maybe read CRYOSLEEP first? Or do I have to?

Nope. In typical Bujold out of order style, this is set a couple of years before Cryoburn.

*facepalm* CRYOBURN, not CRYOSLEEP. Right. Thanks.

This book has restored my Bujoldian faith after the disappointment that was Cryoburn.

Though yes, pity about By-- a missed opportunity there.
