SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY: An Eternity of Roses, Snippet #6


Hello world,

Welcome to my sixth Six Sentence Sunday snippet from my WIP, An Eternity of Roses. A lucky excerpt, you think? :-D

In the first few weeks I introduced you to the legend of the Valthreans. Then, I gave a small insight into my French villainess, Lady Madeleine de Brandeville.

Today, it's a time for love. After the headiness of the Bournemouthe Annual Christmas Ball, Emmaline and Adrian are taking some private time together before their wedding. Things have been so hectic and surreal that they'd barely had the opportunity to see each other lately. Emmaline rides to their rendezvous point and observes her man from a short distance away.

For a while [Emmaline] stood there, drinking in the sight of [Adrian]. His thick black overcoat stretched over broad shoulders and a powerful back, its folds slipping to the grass to reveal muscular, buckskin-clad thighs and polished Hessians. A light breeze stroked the tips of his hair, making the gold tones flicker, the same breeze that nipped at her face while she studied his profile. He looked so serene. This was a place where responsibilities, fears and reservations did not exist--it was exactly where she had first set eyes on him, where she had finally found home.

“Come sit with me,” he called to her without looking back.

Until next time, live well and love deeply!

Angela Guillaume said...

Thank you, Jessica! xoxo

Cate Masters said...

Excellent visual - could see him so clearly. Love that it was the place she found home.

Lisa Fox said...

You describe him so very well!

Sherry Gloag said...

Very vivid writing, I felt I was there seeing him through her eyes.

Nina Pierce said...

Love your description of him.

Zee Monodee said...

Oooh, I remember when I first read this scene - I think I totally drooled over your hero. :) Love the description here - I could so picture him in my mind. Very well done, girlie - awesome six! XOXO

Angela Guillaume said...

Thank you, Cate. For Emma, wherever Adrian is, it's home. This book was a bit different to write because it starts with a couple who are already in love - so that had to be established before injecting the external conflict...

Angela Guillaume said...

Thank you so much, Lisa xoxo

Angela Guillaume said...

Sherry, I'm glad you could picture it well in your mind :)

Angela Guillaume said...

Nina, thanks. I had amazing inspiration for my hero. Chris Hemsworth is a sight for sore eyes!

Angela Guillaume said...

Zee, thanks, and you're one of the few who knows what comes after this :-D (wink) xoxo

Stephanie Adkins said...

Hello, Angela! I love the six! I hope you're having a great Sunday!

Christine Warner said...

Your descriptions are wonderful! Love his bit of arrogance at the end, an invitation without him even taking the time look at her. Nice Six :)

Nice six! Thanks for sharing, and thanks for the comment on mine :) Can't wait till next week for their conversation!

Aha, he has eyes in the back of his head. Great six, loved it.

I love your voice in this. Great six!

Angela Guillaume said...

Stephanie - thanks! My Sunday was okay, still recovering from the flu :)

Angela Guillaume said...

Christine, I so appreciate your kind words! Thank you, thank you!

Angela Guillaume said...

Guilie, thanks and you're welcome! I'll be definitely continuing this scene next week...

Angela Guillaume said...

Ginger, he does! At least where Emmaline is concerned :-)

Angela Guillaume said...

Vivien, I'm happy that you enjoyed this excerpt. More to come next week!

I'm going to be visiting your blogs little by little this week - hope to make them all! xoxo
