Weekend Writing Warriors: 03/17/13 Betrothal: “Undue Attention”


Welcome back to the Weekend Writing Warriors again. I’m so enjoying seeing my old friends and finding new authors. Hope you all have a great hop!

Today you get more from Betrothal, my medieval romance set in the 14th century.   In this snippet, a continuation of yesterday’s Sweet Saturday Sample, Geoffrey tells Alyse why he want to know her choice before the appointed time.  (Big mistake.)

“Forgive me, my lady, but I wished to know your mind in case the choice

Pelleas and Melisande

Pelleas and Melisande

might…not be the most advantageous to us. Lord Braeton mentioned that if you have chosen one of the more important…or colorful knights it might…draw undue…attention…to us.” Geoffrey ground to a foundering halt. He inwardly cursed as her face registered shock and anger, and grew grim.

She pulled her hands from his and stepped back. “Lord Braeton doubted my ability to choose wisely in this matter? Or you did, my lord? Why not accept the credit that is so justly yours?”

If you want more, please come back next week! 🙂  Right now, you can click here to hop on to more Writing Warrior posts!  And thanks for coming by!

    I love how the heroine is smart! Great tension between them!


  12. Sue says:

    She’s not as timid as she started out at the beginning. He’s gonna have to learn that – and fast! And I’m willing to bet she’s smarter than he imagines..


  13. Oh dear, things are going bad fast! He’d better be quiet before he makes the situation even worse. She’s got a right to be angry…excellent excerpt!

  19. Loved the tension! I think Geoffrey is in trouble.
