Hump Day Hook ~ 13-02-13

HUMP DAY HOOK is a blog hop where each participating author posts ONE paragraph from a WIP (work in progress) or finished book each Wednesday. This gives readers an opportunity to sample different author's work and perhaps even find a new-to-you author.

In this week's offering for Hump Day Hook is from Simeon's Story follows on from last week (working title) that will be book three or four in my Gasquet Princes series.

In this scene Simeon has met a woman, who's dualing skills match his own.

The skill she’d displayed so far discounted any hope she’d charge at his manhood. No, she’d not risk leaving herself open to the obvious retaliation such a charge would engender.

He circled, watching her back foot, weighing his options, always maintaining the straight line between them.

The circle widened. 

He waited— knowing neither could lunge until they closed in again. Not unless they wanted their opponent’s point in their chest

Interesting characters in an interesting situation. Nice hook!

Flossie Benton Rogers said...

His intensity really comes across, as does his assessment of her skills and her moves. I love that she is so talented with the sword and want to know how she got to be that way and what happens between them once the fight is over.

This is a terribly edgy situaton. I fenced all through my youth and there's real potential for one of the other to be very badly hurt if they aren't wearing the proper gear. I'm definitely hooked.
