Sneak Peek Sunday / #SnippetSunday - November 10

Welcome to this weeks version of Sneak Peek Sunday. Seems my usual gang has disbanded, so I've joined the Facebook group Snippet Sunday. Verra excited about joining the new group. Be sure to hop on by and discover their stories. The link will be at the bottom of the post.

Going forward, snippets will range from six to ten sentences. This week's is from Just Once in a Verra Blue Moon.
 
From chapter sixteen...
 

Just Once in a Verra Blue Moon
A Highland Gardens Novel
Bk #2



“Are you really going to marry the jerk?”

“Jerk?”

“Alexander.”

“I must.” Elspeth refused to look at Finn directly. Her hands—she tried to hide them—trembled.

“Why won’t you tell me what happened last night?”

Elspeth’s sad gaze flicked to him briefly before she lowered her head. “Nothing happened you need to ken.”

    1. Hi, Karen. Thanks! As would Finn. He's so frustrated Elspeth plans to move forward with her marriage to another.

  8. Oh I'm sure he needs to know and I want to know too. She can't be marrying a guy she obviously don't love.

    1. Hello, Linda. The marriage was arranged at Elspeth's birth. Finn feels helpless to stop it for many reasons including he is from the future. Thanks for stopping by.
