Six Sentence Sunday

As always, my thanks to all of you who stop by and read my efforts. I appreciate your company.  I particularly appreciated the comments last week

This week I am again posting six sentences from my current WIP, which I forgot to mention last week is my first dip into Regency Romance.  For this week's offering I have gone back to an earlier chapter where the heroine's brother is critising her behaviour.

“You are such a fussbudget, Freddie. No one takes any notice of a woman riding alone when she’s widowed.” Deborah Stavely offered a serene smile in her brother’s direction, well knowing how much it would infuriate him.

Frederick Dalrymple, the fifth Lord Worth, frowned down at his sister. “And you are misinformed, madam,” he snapped. “I have it on good authority you are becoming the talk of the locals.”

Gem Sivad said...

Ah-oh. Gossip rears its ugly head. Great interaction between these characters showing affection and sibling strife.

Jenna said...

Just because widows had a bit more freedom doesn't mean they couldn't get themselves talked about! She'd better watch out; big brother's censure isn't the only thing to be afraid of. Great six!

Christine Warner said...

Nice Six...love the sibling spat and the brother being so brotherly...lol

Jennifer Lowery (Kamptner) said...

Nothing like getting busted by your sibling. Sucks when that happens. Nice six!

Zee Monodee said...

Yikes! Sounds like her brohter is on her case now and won't let go! :) Can't wait to see how she worms her way out of this

It would never do to become the focus of gossip in those days. It could haunt the rest of her life. A 'gentleman' would never want her after that. But maybe she doesn't want a gentlman...
very nice six!

Randi Alexander said...

Great six, Sherry. I love that she's unaware she's causing a scandal.
