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

Happy Sunday!  Here’s another 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 another look at the girls getting ready for bed after the banquet.  Today, I’m continuing the snippet from last week, from the guys’ perspective.  Geoffrey has just told Thomas he’s not going out carousing because he’s going hunting in the morning. Hope you enjoy!

“What game?”

 “A wide-eyed doe.”

Thomas sat up, an irritated glare sparking in his eyes.  “Oh, do not tell me you have been snared by that little wench you flaunted earlier tonight!  You looked insufferably pleased with yourself, and it was not even through your own efforts.”

Hmmm.  Sour grapes from Thomas?

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!
