Each week a group of writers join in a friendly type of blog hop where each share from a current WIP (Work In Progress). The trick to this seemingly easy to do blog hop is that you have to share a scintillating passage in just 8 - 10 lines. Ugh... Sometimes impossible to do! If you'd like to check out some other authors who partake in this fun exercise, click HERE.
I've endeavoured to please you again, continuing on with Kitty and Lord George. We've discovered his horse's name is 'Button' (cue the collective 'Awwww') and so - carrying on. Last week we ended with, "Buttons?" ...the horse was a handsome steed, worthy of a name like Zeus, Juno, or Lightning.
"Laugh if you must, I bought him from a friend whose son named the beast. To change it now would confuse him greatly." He placed his hands around her waist and lifted her with ease onto the saddle. She grimaced from the pressure on her ribs and once again he apologized. "Let's get you to your home and then we can send for a doctor."
With that he swung up behind her and she immediately stiffened, arching her body away from his strong, solid one. He slid an arm around her waist, his other hand loose on the reins.
"Relax, Miss Bennet, I've got you."
Clamping down on her teeth, she nodded and allowed her body to relax into his.
"You might want to hold onto my arm, to give you better balance."
Yup - none other than Henry Cavill will do
Oh, she should just enjoy the moment. I would, especially if it was Henry Cavill. Great inspiration, and a great snippet! :)ReplyDelete
She may be getting Kitty home in one piece, but will her reputation possibly be in tatters?ReplyDelete
Oh yes, Lord George is definitely swoon worthy! Enjoyed the excerpt...ReplyDelete
Henry Cavill will always do! No wonder Kitty is feeling befuddled.ReplyDelete
I'd hold onto any part of him I could get my hands on! LOL He's a McDreamy!ReplyDelete
Better balance? Perhaps not! Especially if he is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
He can wrap his arms around me anytime. Lovely snippetReplyDelete
I can see why you are inspired! Yummy. Great snippet too. I wonder how long she'll be able to strain "away" from this hunka-hunka.ReplyDelete
That's a pretty slight excuse. I wonder if she'll take it.ReplyDelete
I like this flirting. And Henry Cavill is delicious. :DReplyDelete
Wonderful choice for Lord George! Tantalizing tidbit. :-)ReplyDelete
