Welcome back to another Six Sentence Sunday! I’m sorry I missed out on last weekend… September is always a little crazy for me. And its only set to get crazier! Why? Because Book Two in The Stolen Bride Series — The Highlander’s Conquest — releases on 9/21!!! YAY!!! Today I’d like to share six sentences from this upcoming release, on first impressions. To me first impressions are very important–the heroine and hero have to feel that immediate spark, even if they reject it. In this scene, the hero, Blane, has come banging at Aliah’s door and unknowing who it is, she fears that a band of attackers has come to do her harm. *Frosty is her Irish wolfhound.*
Without further ado…
An interminable amount of time seemed to pass before the door was fully open. Aliah stepped back, speechless. Standing before her was the most staggeringly handsome man she’d ever seen—and he was quite alone. Frosty growled for only a moment, quickly silenced by a motion the stranger made with his hand. What? How had he done that?
What is a Highlander to do when he falls for the daughter of his enemy?
Highland warrior, Blane Sutherland, has one mission: disguise himself as an Englishman, cross the border and retrieve Lady Aliah de Mowbray. Always up for a challenge, he agrees, pursuing his conquest with vigor—and trying to deny the powerful desire that eclipses him each time he touches his charge. A rogue of the highest order and a younger son, he has nothing to offer a lady but a broken heart.
And what is a lady to do when she cannot trust her heart?
Aliah is skeptical of the English noble who has come to take her to her father and sister in Scotland, but she pushes her doubts aside. Without word in months, she must make certain her family is safe, then she can return to England to join the convent she has sworn to pledge her life. But then her escort reveals his true self—he’s a Highlander and his kisses are more seductive than the sweetest of wines.
Surrender never tasted so sweet…
Releasing on 9/21!!! I’ll post links when I have them!!!
