WeWriWa: Miss George’s Second Chance Pt2

Happy Sunday! I had such a great response to the first Miss George’s Second Chance first snippet last weekend. Thank you so much for your wonderful words of encouragement. I’m following immediately on from last week


She limped forward, annoyed that her clumsiness at dinner earlier in the evening at his house had robbed her of her dignity. It was not every day she pursued a man for conversation, even when he was her best friend’s elder brother. She was taking quite a risk being here but it was within her power to improve their lot. Peter Watson may lack the good sense to detect and seize his only chance for security, but Imogen would not. She had a plan for her life and Mr. Peter Watson would suit her needs perfectly.

When she found the place she meant to sit, Mr. Watson remembered his manners and gallantly swept his coat from his shoulders and spread it on the ground so she might rest upon it. She was pleased to see that even while desperate, he did retain some good qualities. Her hopes for a smooth resolution soared.

I love and appreciate your comments. Thanks for reading.

Brighton_200Miss George’s Second Chance – out November 13

Peter Watson once believed that marriage to Imogen George would solve his financial problems. He didn’t mind marrying for convenience and a large fortune when affection was within reach. Yet when he gains a title, an estate, and a fortune of his own the secretive writer releases him from their engagement so he might marry for love instead. Now he’s returned, unwed and unaware of changes in her life, should he do what is expected or listen to his heart?

  1. I have only one technical note:

    “… . It was not every day she pursued a man for conversation, even when he was her best friends elder brother.”

    That should be “best friend’s elder brother,” because he is the elder brother of her best friend, and that would make “friend” possessive.

    Everything else was wonderful! November 13th… can’t wait!

    And great eight, of course. :]

  2. I’m just enjoying the flow of the scene and her thoughts and plans. I liked the gesture with the coat, quite promising! Excellent excerpt! Best wishes on the book’s Release!

  3. This is a fun eight. Makes me wonder what she did that was clumsy, whether he fits her needs because she loves him or she can “use” him for some reason, and what brought him back to her if he didn’t love her before?
