Six Sentence Sunday 11-4-12 - Release Day Eve for An Infamous Marriage!

An Infamous Marriage releases tomorrow, so this is the last excerpt I'll be posting on Six Sentence Sunday. I've enjoyed sharing some teasers from this story with you, and I hope to see some of you on my blog tour, which started Friday and continues through December 3. (Today I'm at Risky Regencies.) At most of the stops I'll be giving away a copy of the book, and at the end of the tour I'll be giving out a grand prize of a $50 bookstore gift certificate.

Without further ado, here's this week's six. Jack and Elizabeth are finally spending the night together...bundled up in their warmest clothing in a barn in northern England in February, waiting for a mare to foal. But one thing has led to another, and...

He broke the kiss but stayed close, nose to nose, breathing hard. “Oh, God, Elizabeth. Is it really that cold?” 
Some distant part of her murmured she might regret this in the morning, but she ignored it. “I’ve never been warmer,” she gasped. 
She kissed him again and he began to work at the buttons on her pelisse.

  1. Will she regret it? I hope not. A very tender moment. Great six.

    1. Well, she won't regret it RIGHT AWAY, at least, but this is maybe around the halfway point of the book, so... :-)

  5. Best wishes for the release. And why did they breed a mare to foal in February in New England?

    1. That may be an error on my part, though I would've sworn I researched common months for foaling at some point during my process. :-/ If it makes it any better, this is *Old* England, not New England, so the winters are a bit milder, and this scene is very late in February, so it could be a foal bred for March coming a few weeks early.
