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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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?

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

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

  5. 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 🙂
