Six Sentence Sunday



Thank you to everyone who leaves comments, and visits every week. 
Today I am sharing more from of my Valentine Story about Henri Gasquet, hero in His Chosen Bride.


He planted his knuckles on his father’s desk and leaned forward. “I can’t just take off and leave them all in the lurch.” He pushed away.  “It is ridiculous for you or anyone else to expect me to walk away from my duties. Who would take my place?” he challenged, knowing every project mentioned needed his influence and prestige to press the projects forward.

“I will.”

Please hop on over to SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY to read more fabulous snippets on offer this week.

How is he going to say no to his father? I think Henri's getting some time off! :)

Glad it works for you, Sarah. The father is a canny old soul, and Henri's not aware of that yet!
