Six Sunday #33 – Forsaking the Prize Part 3

Another six from Forsaking the Prize, my latest Regency Historical Romance, following straight on from last week. Need to recap? Click here to start from the beginning.



Leopold took a step forward and touched the scars on his back. “My God have you even seen this?”

Tobias shrugged. “No. I have not had much opportunity to gaze at myself in mirrors. There’s nothing you can do about it. Put it from your mind.”

    I’m intrigued with his scars and how he got them. His lack of concern is an interesting character attribute. Very mysterious! Great six!!

    I like that he’s so accepting of his scars.

    Love the part where he says he hasn’t had time to gaze at himself in a mirror!

    Tobias seems to have a great sense of what is and is not important. Interesting character. One wonders if Leopold is as grounded.

    Easier said than done sometimes, to stop wondering about something like these scars seem to be – excellent excerpt!

    Toby brazening it out there?

    I doubt they can be put out of mind. And yes, I also doubt he is so unemotional about the scars

    Interesting. Despite his indifference, it sounds like he might have emotional scars to match those on his body. Nice characterization!

    I like his reply, but I wonder too how much emotional scarring he’s hiding from. Nice six. 🙂
