Welcome back for my fifth snippet from The Wedding Affair. It’s a beautiful sunny Sunday down under. I hope you’re having a similarly wonderful weekend. In this excerpt, Felix is getting the first hint that he’s not going to enjoy this summons.
Felix moved to stand before the table. “I was given to believe the matter that brought me here was urgent.”
“And it is,” the duke barked. “Absolutely vital.”
“Then what is this about?” Felix folded his arms across his chest, belligerence heating his blood at the unnecessary delay. “The admiral has told me nothing of my purpose in being here.”
The duke appeared amused rather than intimidated by his posture. “This is about your career, Captain. Your very future as commander of the Selfridge.”
Thanks for reading and commenting on the fifth snippet from my upcoming release, The Wedding Affair. Apologies that I didn’t get around to comment on more blogs last week. Mother’s Day and week-long sinus pain kept me offline more than I would have liked. Release day is just over a week away. Yay!
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?
