Six Sentence Sunday

I'm taking Six Sentences from my current Regency novel, Vidal's Honor, this week.  I hope you enjoy.

 
Vidal took her hand in both of his. “He didn’t make it.”

“I’m sorry.” And she was. If he’d spoken the truth he’d acted to save his own family, the same way Devlin would have protected her, and Vidal was doing so now. That didn’t mean she could forgive his duplicity, but in the hard cut and thrust of war, with betrayal and counter-betrayal rife perhaps he felt he had no option.

There are hundreds more six Sentence offerings for you at Six Sentence Sunday
