SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY: An Eternity of Roses, Snippet #4

Another week is over, and a new one around the corner. I find myself at my computer at 2:30am, unable to sleep. Perhaps it's because I crashed a bit too early last night. I was so tired after chasing the toddler around the house that I couldn't keep my eyes open. I woke up around 1am, and by 2am I was sick of lying still, staring at the dark ceiling. Ergo, I decided to be a bit more productive. I got up to write this blog and schedule it to post in the morning.

Six Sentence Sunday is becoming an indispensable part of my routine and I'm having so much fun sharing my work with you. If you want to read some amazing snippets from my talented SSS accomplices, please click here. You'll find tons to enjoy and mull over...

So, where were we? In the first 3 weeks I delved a little in the legend of the Valthreans that underlies my entire series of The Valthrean Legacy. Today, I think it's time that I jump into the core story of An Eternity of Roses. As I mentioned in my first SSS post, the main gist of the novel is the quest of Lady Emmaline Deramore for her lost mate. Emmaline is madly in love with Adrian Segrave, Viscount Bournemouthe, and is set to marry him in a few days.

But someone is throwing a monkey wrench in these best laid plans...

Here's Emmaline's first inkling of trouble in Chapter 1:

Lady Emmaline Deramore swallowed hard while trying to calm her racing heart. She stood in the crowded ballroom at Belvoir Hall, three days before her wedding to Adrian Segrave, Viscount Bournemouthe, feeling like a trapped fox. A powerful pang of unease stung the hairs on her nape and sliced through her lungs.

Something was dreadfully wrong. Her eyes darted around until they settled on the figure of a tall, breathtakingly beautiful woman with crimson hair and an emerald gown that showcased ample translucent white cleavage. Her blood froze.

It was her.

I hope you enjoyed this mini excerpt. See you next week for another fabulous Six Sentence Sunday!
