Six Sunday #35 Forsaking the Prize Part 5

Busy. Busy weekend. Right now, I’m probably glued to the TV watching the V8 Supercars, Australia’s premier racing series and my favorite and only sport to watch. Go Ford & DJR! Hope your day is just as fun. Continuing on from last week.


“This is not what I expected,” Leopold growled. “The duke said you were well cared for.”

“The duke lied, or else has a different definition of care than most people.”

“How can you not be furious?”

“The Duke of Romsey is dead. Cousin Edwin is dead, and the young duke doesn’t look a bit like either of them.”


Oh and PS: I do try to reciprocate and visit anyone who comments on my posts but sometimes that proves impossible. If you use word verification on your  blog it’s likely I couldn’t pass the test. After three attempts to comment, I admit defeat and move on to the next blogger. 🙁

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.

    Hi Heather!

    I’m really enjoying get part of the excerpts a little at a time! I can’t wait to read Forsaking the Prize.

    Oooh, very intrigued!

    I agree about the word verification. Some people don’t know it’s on their site though (blogger switched it on automatically in January). I’ve had to give up several times myself.

    Will be interested to see what happens to the new duke.

    Very intriguing excerpt!

    I used to use the word verification. It keeps out the trash, but I agree. It gets to be too much, going blind trying to type something and still being able to get through. I did away with it on mine when people mentioned they were having trouble getting in. Not worth it!

    Liked the snippet. Sometimes, you have to move, huh? Nice job!

    Intriguing snippet.

    “The duke lied, or else has a different definition of care than most people.” -So much detail in one sentence. Love it!

    Wonderful dialogue. Shows so much.

  11. Lorraine Paton October 22, 2012 at 3:09 am #

    Love the way you’ve revealed both information and their character in your dialogue. 🙂

    I am almost blind so the word verification is a challenge. Glad to hear I’m not the only one. Guess his attitude is what’s done is done, and now I hope he will heal.

    Terrific! I like the pragmatism of Tobias and the sympathy of Leopold.

    I have problems with word verification, too. I can read one or the other but rarely both. 🙂

    This story just keeps getting more and more intriguing with each excerpt – terrific six!

  15. Stevie Carroll October 22, 2012 at 4:58 am #

    Very intriguing last line there.

  16. Donna Cummings October 22, 2012 at 11:41 am #

    I like the pragmatic attitude Tobias displays in these snippets — although I think there’s more under the surface there. It definitely keeps me intrigued. 🙂

    Intriguing…makes me want to know more!

  18. Carrie Crain October 22, 2012 at 2:03 pm #

    I can’t seem to do that word verification either. It’s frustrating and quite annoying. I love his dialogue, sounds arrogant but in a good way!

  19. Gemma Parkes October 22, 2012 at 7:16 pm #

    Lovely dialogue!

  20. Angela Quarles October 23, 2012 at 1:56 am #

    Intriguing! Makes me want to know more!
