SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY: An Eternity of Roses, Snippet #9


Hello world,

Another Sunday, another Six Sentence Sunday post. First of all, I wish to thank you for all the comments you always post to my excerpts. They fill me with warmth and happiness.

I missed last week's post - as well as posting a few other blogs - because December is such a busy month! Until January, I will still be posting Rev Up Wednesdays author interviews regularly, but Kick Start Monday and Wrap Up Friday postings will be erratic at best. That said, SSS is so much fun that I can't just let it go for a whole month!

This week, until yesterday, I took part in Carly Fall's Holiday Blog Hop, which was totally fun. Today, life is not so glamorous. I'm just now working on defrosting the whole chicken that I forgot to take out of the freezer last night - so it's back to wearing my undomestic goddess hat, lol.

I hope you enjoy this week's posting that picks up from the last SSS snippet here. For a complete list of all my SSS excerpts, please go here.

And please, do not forget to check out the postings of my fellow SSS authors today. They're really great and I'm sure you'll find a few other favorite authors in that list, or an extra pile of books in your TBR pile :).

Here's my contribution... my hero and heroine are having an afternoon tryst before their wedding - completely unaware that things are about to go awfully wrong...

She turned and leaned into him, and burrowed her head in the crook of his neck. “Cook detained me a little longer than planned with the carte du jour for the wedding,” she explained as she admired the prettiness of the water and the rolling hills beyond it.

Tightening his embrace, he entwined his fingers with hers. Etched with little scars and bruises, his were the hands of a man who was no stranger to physical work.

“I miss your grandmother,” he said suddenly, surprising her. “She would have been happy for us.”

Superb six. I missed you last week.

Thank you, Ginger. Your excerpt is no less fab, either :). I was drowning in things to do last week, and I wouldn't have had any time to comment, so I thought it wouldn't be fair to post xoxo
