It's been way too long since I've been able to participate in Weekend Writing Warriors, and I'm looking forward to reading everyone's snippets. I miss your snippets!
This is from my latest, Lord Rakehell's Love. It's a novella that commences The Curse of True Love series, where Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, tries her hand at playing matchmaker in Regency London. Unfortunately, it doesn't go smoothly. In fact, the hero, Simon, is late to his own wedding, and the bride leaves him at the altar.
In this snippet, Simon is discussing things with his best friend, Hugh:
"I swear I fell in love with her at first sight." He sighed. "Or maybe it was that delightful moment when she mocked my flirtation skills—"
"If I ever have that dreamy quality to my voice when describing a woman I want to bed—"
Simon scowled at him.
"Wed," Hugh amended. "March me to the most public spot in Hyde Park and aim my own duelling pistol at my heart."
"I am an excellent shot, Weyson, but even I am unable to make a direct hit on an invisible target."
Oh, Hugh. I can't wait until you meet your match in the sequel, Lord Wastrel. *evil cackle* Anyway, thanks for stopping by. I'm off to read your posts now!
And stop by my Friday Friends interview with fellow Weekend Writing Warrior, S. J. Maylee. You'll want to see her answers to my Tasty Ten speed-dating questions. (Especially "pecs or abs?")
