Six Sunday #31 – Forsaking the Prize Part 1

Hey, Happy Sunday everyone. I’m a little excited this week as my new historical romance novel, Forsaking the Prize, has just released. Yesterday, I posted page one of the novel and this six follows directly on from that. Enjoy!

“See that you do,” Leopold warned.

Tobias shrugged off his coat and waistcoat, ignoring how Murphy picked them up with two fingers and set them aside. He loosened his neck cloth and ripped the shirt over his head.

Behind him, Leopold gasped and he remembered others might not care for the state of his back. He kept the view from Murphy as he kicked off his footwear, only to remember there were more scars circling his ankles.

“Murphy, leave us,” Leopold murmured quietly.

I really appreciate everyone who reads and comments each week, and those visiting my blog for the first time. You will find amazing authors participating in Six Sunday by visiting the host site, Six Sentence Sunday and by searching for #sixsunday via Twitter.
