Sweet Saturday Samples

After a few weeks away, today I'm back and sharing a short sample from my most recently accpeted novel No Job For A Woman - projected release date August 2012 with Secret Cravings Publishing.

My thanks, as ever, to everyone who visits and to say how much I appreciate your comments, because in the past they have been responsible for me making some major, and needed, changes to some WIPs.

“Again? What does he mean by ‘again?’” The fire died from her eyes and she stepped away from him. “What’s changed that Brandon broke his silence?”

Julian handed over the crumpled note.

“If you want to see your daughter again, hand over the papers by Thursday.”

“Thursday.” Deborah tapped one slim finger against the paper.

“Friday.” Her fist scrunched the note into a ball. “Brandon is to produce those papers before Thursday and I am to agree to wed him the following day. Where is the connection?” She spoke almost to herself and Julian leaned forward to hear her.

Ignoring him, she began pacing from one end of the room to the other. Julian caught Henrietta’s anxious look and shook his head. Freddie maintained his sister had a logical mind, and it interested him to see her ditch her indignation and address the latest calamity with a cool approach.

There are many other fabulous Samples HERE

Interesting dilemma. I wonder how it resolves. Nice sample

I wonder what the connection is. Very interesting.

Sandy Nachlinger said...

I wonder about the connection too, as well as the reason for his sister's calm demeanor. Is she really that calm?

Lindsay said...

Interesting scene going on here

Carrie-Anne said...

Very interesting set-up of the situation. I wonder what she's thinking beneath that calm exterior.
