SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY: An Eternity of Roses, Snippet #7


Hello world,

It's getting cold outside. Yesterday I attended the local book fair in the evening and when I came out of the hall, the wind bit at my face and cut through my jacket and sweater. Strange how it turned from the morning's sunny and hot (so much I wished I had only a t-shirt on) to this... Just like life, eh? Totally unpredictable, lol.

So today I'm staying in. Roast chicken, mashed potatoes and peas for lunch - something about this dish that makes me all warm and happy inside :). In the meantime, I need to keep busy, and the best way? Posting my Six Sentence Sunday snippet, of course!

First of all, please check out the other posts by my fellow Six-Sundayers. It's fun, and you may come across a book or books you'd really like to read.

Second, about my excerpt...

Last week we left my heroine Emmaline who'd just ridden to a secluded spot to meet the hero, Adrian. Perfect place for an afternoon tryst...

Yearning to get close to him, she removed her hat and walked to him. His cheeks were flushed from the open air. A half-day old stubble cast the faintest of shadows on the sharp angles of his chin and jaw, giving him a roguish air. With a lopsided smile he offered her his hand. She reached out to him, letting her gaze roam from the depths of his eyes to his exposed throat where he had untied his cravat. A light smattering of golden hairs peeked from the top of the shirt, stirring heat inside her.

“You are late,” he taunted in a silky tenor voice.

Hope you enjoyed this, and wish you a Happy Sunday!

Until next time, live well and love deeply.

lilashaw.com said...

I do love to see a man's throat, especially if there are a few hairs peeking out. So vulnerable that spot. Yum.

Angela Guillaume said...

I agree, Lila. Something about that hollow that shows a little bit of vulnerability...

JoAnne Kenrick said...

“You are late,” he taunted in a silky tenor voice.
PURRRR I can almost hear him speak! Sexy :)

Angela Guillaume said...

Hey JoAnne - I know! I felt that way too as I wrote it :)
