Welcome to another Sweet Saturday Samples. I blink and eye and another week's gone by! Today I am offering a short sample from the start of my Untitled Regency WIP
London June 1812
“There’s been another breech of security.” Robert Dundas, 2nd Viscount Melville, and First Lord of the Admiralty, laid one hand on his companion’s arm and hefted a weary sigh. “Take a walk with me,” he said, with a shrewd hard look at the man beside him. “I’d appreciate your company, and this is not the place for such a discussion. I live not far beyond your own place, I believe?”
Lord Alastair Vidal paused in the act of fobbing his snuff box and studied his friend. The smell of fine wine, whiskey and cigar smoke blended into a rich aroma that was as much a part of Whites, as the card games, the background chatter and outbreaks of lewd laughter from the younger members of the club.
With an indolent twist of the wrist he returned the elegantly lacquered box, unopened, to his pocket and nodded agreement.
Together they strolled across the room stopping to take their leave of several mutual friends. A man’s club was no place for private conversation.
