SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY: An Eternity of Roses, Snippet #12

Hello world,


First week of the new year's already gone - can you believe it? It seems like just yesterday we were listening to Christmas tunes and watching Santa movies and rom coms, and now... we're already on our way out of January :D.

As always I look forward to the SSS post, and appreciate all the comments you leave. Last week was an important post for me and I was overwhelmed by the wonderful responses!

So, about my finished novel, An Eternity of Roses... (please read more about it, including the full prologue, by clicking here).

My two lovers, Lady Emmaline Deramore (inspired by the beautiful and exotic, Monica Bellucci) and her hunk of a fiance', Adrian Segrave, Viscount Bournemouthe (inspired by none other than, yes, an exquisitely cleaned up Chris Hemsworth), are getting cozy by the banks of the river Ver that runs by their families' estates in the St. Albans area. The time period: pre-Regency England.

Can you picture them? :D


Please check out my last SSS blog here to see where I left off. And here's my excerpt:

She had no doubt – Adrian was made for Belvoir, and Belvoir was made for him. His daily strolls to the corn fields and the wheat fields dotted with haystacks, the backbreaking tilling of earth pregnant with promise, was as much a part of him as she was. Adrian was not the kind of idle aristocrat to manage his property from the comfort of his study. The tenants loved him, not least for his advanced notions on soil improvement, animal husbandry and estate management. Even his dutiful father could not have matched Adrian’s common sense and perseverance.

She turned her head sideways to look up into his eyes and waited for him to say something, anything.


Hope you enjoyed it. For more SSS goodness, please check out what the other SSS authors have in store for their readers.

Also, if you are interested in an author interview (a Rev Up Wednesday post) or running a fun contest on my blog, with promo (a Kick Start Monday post), please email me at angelaguillaume@gmail.com for more information. I'm aiming to fill more slots, especially for the Monday contest blogs.

Until next time, live well and love deeply,

I hope he turns out to be as perfect as she thinks he is. That's a lot to live up to, though!
Hope it works out for them.:)

Lady Deramore clearly thinks a lot of her fiance. From her internal thoughts, he sounds like a lovely chap. Hope he lives up to her expectations!

Angela Guillaume said...

Hey JC. She's going to need that faith, trust me :D

Great snippet, Natalie (still getting used to that, hahahaha)--loved the description, and the last line is to die for: "something--anything"... Wow!

Thanks for dropping by my blog yesterday--you're right, this story I'm writing now does make me go back in time, too :)
