Thank you everyone for coming by to comment on my posts over the last two weeks. It’s been wonderful to have so positive a response to my new and upcoming story. The moment when Sally met Felix, as you might have gathered, it is not a joyful reunion. They meet in a crowded room and every member of Sally’s family is pretending that Sally and Felix have no history together. The scene begins with Sally’s father, and Felix’s superior officer, greeting him.
“Thank you for coming at such short notice. Sorry about this nonsense interfering with business.”
“I understand completely.” Felix nodded, noticing that Sally’s spine had stiffened as he spoke. It pleased him to know she recognized his voice after so long, because she had always had that effect on him. As a young man, he had been head over heels. Hopelessly drawn to her despite their differences in background and her being his commanding officer’s eldest daughter.
She turned slowly and their eyes met. The dark of the churning winter sea before a storm offered a friendlier welcome. Her eyes narrowed farther as he smiled. Perhaps he had expected too much of her to have seen the error in her assumptions on her own.
That was the third snippet from my upcoming release, The Wedding Affair. More to come next week.
The Wedding Affair is available to pre-order with the book release May 24th, 2016.
The life she wants is the love he lost.
Coming face-to-face before her wedding with the scoundrel who broke her heart and destroyed her trust could not be more awkward or ill timed for Sally Ford. When she agreed to give her hand and fortune to London’s most eligible earl, she did so believing she would learn to love him after they tied the knot. Her betrothed has no idea she was engaged to Captain Felix Hastings six years ago, or that she gave her innocence to the ambitious officer.
When Felix answered the summons from his superior he never expected to face Sally Ford, the woman who’d believed a lie and labeled him a fortune hunter before calling off their engagement six years ago. In his determination to clear the air about the past, pride clashes with the truth as every argument and stolen moment reignites a passion that has never waned. Giving in could destroy everything they’ve both worked so hard to achieve, or will fate offer them a chance to begin again if only they can forgive?
