Six Sentence Sunday


Again, from my current medieval scottish wip. This time, Breghan is trying to turn Arran off his intended bride, the one he's on his way to marry but has never met... she's not having much success, lol

  “She has a vicious tongue that none can escape; everyone from kitchen servant to castle lord falls foul to her scathing rants.”
  “If I canna keep her screams sweet in bed, I’ll keep her mouth busy elsewhere.”
  Breghan was back to believing he’d buried six wives. He was clearly capable of using one up and then going on to the next. “Do you plan to spend any time out of bed at all?”
  “If McAllen’s daughter is half as bad as you say, then no, at least not with my wife.”

  11. Fabulous dialogue, some really awesome lines: “If I canna keep her screams sweet in bed, I’ll keep her mouth busy elsewhere...” “If McAllen’s daughter is half as bad as you say, then no, at least not with my wife.”

  13. Loved this excerpt. Really, really love this. And I'm hoping that Breghan is the intended bride, because the set up is just too cute, and can't wait to see his reaction when they are re-introduced.
