Sunday Snippet

Sunday Snippet for Pursuing Honor:

She could accept confusion and even a temper, but she refused to tolerate direct audacity.  "Where do you think you're going?  I told you, there is no town," she shouted after him.

"Home," he answered, plain and direct.

"Returning to your time isn't as simple as walking to your car and driving away in a huff."  

"In a huff?" he repeated.  He turned toward her as though he rounded third base and raced toward home plate.  Honor lacked padding and protective gear, but that didn't seem to slow him down.  "If I were to believe you," he said, stating the parameter of his ground rules.  "And I'm not saying that I do.  What do you suggest I do?  Stay with you in the past like a souvenir?"

Sunday Snippet

Sunday Snippet for Pursuing Honor:

Honor shifted her weight to her knees.  She cupped Hunter’s chin in her hands, and turned his face toward her, inspecting him thoroughly.  Warmth flooded beneath her fingertips, and his breathing regulated.  No initial signs of shock.  Still…  She rubbed the pad of her thumb to the side of his eyes.  He didn’t have the telltale birthmark like the time travelers in her family.  A small mole to the side and below the left eye identified all members of her family who had inherited the gift.  All of her sisters except for Grace, the youngest, had been given this ability.  She kept her eyes trained on Hunter, and sat back on her heels.  What on earth was he doing here, and how would she return him to his home?

Sunday Snippet

I hope you enjoy the Sunday Snippet from Pursuing Honor:

Honor stood perfectly still and waited for her surroundings to stop flickering between the future and the present.  Brick buildings with commercial air conditioning units morphed into oak and birch trees with leafy canopies.  Asphalt and grass volleyed back and forth under her high-heeled pumps.  She could think of no occasion to wear her bedazzled footwear in 1752, but she couldn't bring herself to leave behind such a lovely piece of art.  Explaining a highly arched shoe with rhinestone details would be difficult to do.  And as much as she enjoyed the look and feel of the contoured leather on her foot, she planned to tuck the sparkly footwear in a trunk and hide them from any curious eyes.

Sunday Snippet

I made one New Year's resolution for 2013.  To faithfully post a Sunday Snippet for my current work in progress.  In keeping with that promise, here is a snip from my upcoming book, Pursuing Honor, Book 2 in the Forever Time Travel Romance Series:

Honor continued to watch the tall, brown haired man from across the field.  Broad shouldered but not beefy like a football player, he could easily fill out a baseball uniform.  It was too bad his lack of coordination kept him from making the team.  Honor watched him as he walked.  She lowered her gaze and concentrated on his gait.  Did he realize his steps were perfectly balanced away from the diamond?
"He's in love with you, you know," Julie said.

Honor couldn't determine if Julie approved of this statement or was disturbed by it.  Either way, she sighed deeply and nodded.  "I know."
