Six Sentence Sunday: 1/16/2011

Today's Six Sentence Sunday excerpt comes from my Regency novella, Healing Hearts, releasing on February 28 from Carina Press:

Anger burned within her breast, bright as her love for the viscount once had.

And yet…her gaze swept him again, lingering on the trousers that molded his muscular thighs, the loose shirt that emphasized the breadth of his shoulders. ’Twas but the vicious wind that stole her breath, she told herself.

Why was he here? Why had he come now? What was he doing marching about the windswept cliffs so close to the manor when he had not had the decency to call upon her family?


           My blog post, "Juicy Bits of Agony," is up today at http://romancingthepast.blogspot.com/ and I hope you'll pop by there and visit.

          And check out the other Six Sentence Sunday authors! Our numbers are growing!
