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.
