Welcome to the Saturday Spanks Blog Hop. If this is your first time, this hop is where a bunch of authors get together and share a snippet of one of their books or something they're working on.
It's really fun and sometimes I have to go right out and buy the darn book as I get pretty intrigued. As a matter of fact, guess who went to buy her husband a new pair of moccasins on Amazon this week and didn't have enough left on her card after last week's book buying frenzy. Yup, me.
You guys can all rest easy on my blog this week, because you can't actually buy this book yet, so see, I'm already saving you money.
Today I'm posting a snippet of my WIP (work in progress). It's actually finished, I'm just polishing it up a bit this weekend before I submit it on Monday. Then the delightful, Maggie Ryan, will take over and ever so gently point out all my mistakes and my deplorable lack of commas.
Anyway...here's a snippet from The Marriage Market, Effie, Book Three:
“I’ve never pretended to be anything other than what I am, Mr. Jordon. Just because a woman is small in stature, do not assume she is weak in spirit,” Effie spat. “Your physical appearance is also deceptive. It’s a pity that an attractive man like you is in reality, a bore.”
“Oh, you think I’m attractive?” Sam asked suspiciously. “Is this a new ploy to get your way?”
“Handsome is as handsome does, Mr. Jordon. Based on your behavior thus far I would say that your personality is somewhere between a horned toad and a slug,” she offered sweetly.
Sam burst out laughing. He couldn’t seem to help it. What a wretch this blonde terror was. As pretty as a spring morning, with a wit and tongue as biting as vinegar.
So that's it for now. You can't buy it, but feel free to want to buy it. :)
Stop by and visit the other authors on the linky list below. They'd love to have you. See you next week.
These panties have absolutely nothing to do with 'Effie'. A dear friend sent me this pic and it kinda, sorta reminds me what my ass looked like a couple hundred years ago. I miss it.
