Sweet Saturday Samples - I missed it!
So why have I once again missed the wonderful Sweet Saturday Samples well, I'm not sure. I've been no busier than usual, yeah I'm trying to work on three stories at once and find my characters gaily cruising through each other's stories, which is fine, except one of them is a Regency and the others are not! What joy :-0
But that's no reason not to offer you something else instead, is it? I keep talking about my wip Regency story, No Job For a Woman, so why don't I offer you a little snippet from that today?
Julian, (my hero) is rescuing two women from a burning building when tragedy strikes...
A sound, reminiscent of canon fire, did not give him time to escape the building as burning timbers rained down, pinning his legs just inside the doorframe.
Careful hands cradled him while others fought frantically to free his him. He didn’t hear the woman’s sobbing thanks.
Only Deborah’s voice filtered through his agony, kept him striving to hold on. Rough hands swept him off the ground and carried towards his wife’s home. The soft touch of her hand, wrapped round his, faded into the engulfing blackness.
