Six Sentence Sunday #13: Forsaking the Prize

Wow. 2012 is flying by. So hard to believe we’re already in March. Another post for six sentence sunday (along with the other 100+ authors participating in this weekly event). This week I’m offering up something really fresh, as in something written very recently. I’m in the early stages of writing Forsaking the Prize and thought I’d share this small sample of my wip. This is Tobias’ first night at Romsey Abbey and he’s just decided to take a grand tour with Eamon Murphy as his guide.

* * *

“I’m not as well versed as I’d like to be about the abbey,” Murphy mumbled.

Tobias set his hand to his ear. “Speak up man, cannon fire has ruined my hearing. Did you just say your nurse lives at the abbey?”

Murphy gave him a flat, hostile stare. “I really didn’t miss you.”

Forsaking the Prize

She was a faithful widow until…
Abducted at fourteen and sent away to sea, rough and ready sailor Tobias Randall endured exile and cruelty only to have his plans for revenge crumble. He may have made a terrible first impression upon his return to Romsey Abbey, but he has a plan to reclaim his place—he’ll marry quickly and marry a woman of wealth. Yet the perils of life at sea are nothing compared to the danger of attempting polite conversation with a proper lady.
… he reawakened her heart
Blythe, Lady Venables, may be revered as a faithful, proper widow, but a cruel misunderstanding has placed her sanity in doubt. Determined to clear her name, she forms an uneasy truce with the wildest Randall of all, Tobias—a man shamelessly willing to seduce her—to uncover the mystery plaguing Romsey Abbey. With doubts and fears against them, Tobias and Blythe each venture into uncharted territory – love and scandal.
Forsaking the Prize is a steamy regency romance novel.
