Maria Lucas by Jennifer Becton
This was a short story continuing Maria's romance from her sister's book. While the description says there are spoilers if you read it first, there are very few not already in the description on amazon. Charlotte's husband is not named, so it could be anyone.
The story is very short. It took me about 20 minutes to read. While it gave us a little more insight into Mr. Card, it seemed a bit superficial. Maria sees he has gained some muscle, and suddenly she is overcome with attraction for him. Her feelings are engaged when she hears why he has been absent from home so much. Nice story, might have been fleshed out a bit more. 3/5 stars
