SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY: An Eternity of Roses, Snippet #8

Hello world,

It's time for...


First of all, my apologies for not being around last Sunday. I needed a break from the computer so I spent the day outside with family and friends. Today, it's another beautiful day outside - sunny, although a bit chilly, but I'm staying in because it's been a busy week.

More importantly, I wish to thank everyone who posts comments regarding my excerpts. You have no idea how much I appreciate them!

So, where were we? Ah yes, my latest WIP, An Eternity of Roses. We continue from where Lady Emmaline Deramore is a little late for her rendezvous with her love, the Thor-like Adrian Segrave, Lord Bournemouthe. How could she keep such a man waiting? :) Check out the last snippet I posted here.

“I am sorry. I—” Before she had a chance to finish he pulled her to the ground and settled her against him, sitting with her back to his chest. His thighs held her prisoner while his arms came around her, enfolded her, made her shudder.

Keep me close, always.

“Are you cold?”

She turned her head to look into his face, and swallowed hard.

Thanks for stopping by! I have a bunch of Six Sunday "accomplices" who are also posting their amazing SSS excerpts today. Please show them your support and check out their blogs - all the links are here. It's well worth your time!

And now, off to finish that Butter Chicken and yellow rice I'm making for lunch. The kitchen smells like an Indian restaurant...yum!

Until next time, promise me you'll live well and love deeply. :)

If she is cold, I'm sure she won't be for long. Great six! :)

Jessica, how did you guess? :D

I don't think that shudder was from any kind of cold!

Aaaaahhhh... Love it! "Keep me close, always"... What a line! Thanks for sharing, Angela! And thanks for stopping over at my blog--yep, Alexia is totally done for, but she doesn't know it yet (*cackles evilly*) :D Have a fantastic Sunday, and enjoy that Butter Chicken!

Great six! Beautifully emotive.

He sounds irresistible. Great six!

"Keep me close always" ~ *SIGH* So romantic. Great six, Angela! Have a wonderful week!

I love the emotion in this, suppressed and otherwise. Well done!

Guilie, thank you! That line is so bittersweet. Emmaline has no clue she's about to lose Adrian.

I so enjoy reading your excerpts, too. Can't wait for next week to see Alexia's reaction.

Cherie, he is! But then I'm biased. Lol x

Aww, so sweet that he asks if she's cold. I'm sure he'll warm her up. :)

Gayle Ramage said...

Very nice. Reminds me a little of Jamie Fraser from the Outlander novels :)

Angela Guillaume said...

Lol, Pippa. :)

Angela Guillaume said...

Gayle - thanks! I've never read the Outlander novels but I want to. I have to check them out.
