Six Sentence Sunday


I'm back with another snippet from my medieval scottish romance, Devil of Jedburgh. Things are still not going that well between them :)

  “Learn to hold your tongue,” whispered Arran near her ear. “Explanations are worse than bog lands, you step deeper into the muck with every misspent word.”
  Breghan scowled up at him, not intending to say another word with her father staring them down. But then he went and did it, another damned shrug, so casual and unconcerned.
  “Afraid of what I might reveal?” she challenged with mock sweetness. “I knew you were a devil and a boar and now I discover you are a coward too.”

PS There's a 6 eBook giveaway today and tomorrow at the Carina Press Historical Authors blog. Please stop by for a chance to win.

    Interesting to see the connections to Jedburgh coming up. I love Scotland, but when browsing through the net (and my head) Jedburgh just seemed to stick as the setting for my next story. Magick there
