Six Sunday #25: Chills

Welcome back for more Six Sentence Sunday teasers from Chills. Continuing on from last week, Constance and the marquess are still at odds over her plans to marry.

* * *

“I am not your responsibility.”

The marquess took a step forward. His jaw appeared to be locked in place. She hoped he kept it that way. When Ettington stopped a mere pace from her, she had to raise her chin high to keep him in view.

“You will not marry Cullen,” he said.

Good bit of conflict there. The marquess sounds very alpha.

I love the confrontational aspect of the scene, with neither willing to give ground. Great six!

An observation … Marquess sounds like a female honorific… I know it’s not but it has that feel about it.

That said it adds to the tension because his title is at odds with his behaviour. A good bit of conflict.

Love the subtle way you reveal the test of wills. One of my favorite sixes today.

Interesting battle of wills going on here. I like it! But if he doesn’t want her to marry Cullen, he’ll have to provide a better alternative. Dare I hope?

Lovely writing, l’m sure he has his reasons, and l like a man to take control once in a while!

Very effective six, I can totally feel the tension and the unbreakable determination each person has to get *their* way. Loving this story!

He’s a bit of a tall fella, then? Great snippet!

I like how she hopes his jaw will stay locked. LOL And I love how she stands her ground with him. This could be a fun battle!

Loved that she wanted his jaw locked shut, LOL. Conflict a-brewing that’s for sure! Great 6!

I think it’s funny that in almost every regency novel, the heroine raises her chin and straightens her back. Now I realize posture isn’t exactly sought after these days, but I don’t think I’ve ever raised my chin in my life and I’m short! Keep up the great writing and I’m happy I stumbled here today 🙂
