Six Sentence Sunday–08/05/12 Time Enough to Love: Betrothal

Happy Sunday!  I’m switching to a snippet from my medieval trilogy, Time Enough to Love:  Book 1 Betrothal. I’ve finished the first draft, sent in to betas and had it returned.  Now I just need to polish, have my wonderful editor take a look, and I hope to have it come out by the end of the summer as the first novella of the trilogy.  (Soon to be followed by Books 2 & 3)

Yesterday on Sweet Saturday Sample I gave a look at the girls getting ready for bed after the banquet.  Today, I’m giving a snippet from the guys perspective.  Hope you enjoy!

Armorial Goblet– c. 1500
Robert Lehman Collection, 1975 1975.1.1218

Seated in a chair before the banked fire, Thomas relaxed with a cup of wine, his foot outstretched to the hearth, and spoke in his most persuasive voice.   “You cannot tell me you intend to retire at this hour—it is not yet midnight and there is to be a game in Sir John Claymore’s apartments this evening.”

Geoffrey strode to the table, dressed in nothing but his chausses, took a cup of the sweet wine for himself and shook his head.  “Nay, Thomas, I plan an early morning.” 

“Hawking or hunting?”

“Most definitely hunting.”


But what game is Geoffrey hunting?  We’ll see next week. 🙂

Thanks so much for visiting me today.  Now pop over to the Six Sentence Sunday list and check out the rest of the snippets.  You’ll have a blast!
