I'm returning with another snippet from my Georgian/Regency era romance novella, Snowflakes & Beeswax. In previous snippets, two young men have arrived on a remote farm, sent there by Queen Charlotte. Sounds terribly exciting doesn't it? ;)

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out the talented writers who've joined me on today's blog-hopping adventures.
Barking drew their attention.
They turned towards the barn in time to see a medium sized black and white dog rush through the snow, running with its belly low to the ground, its movement predatory. The animal’s intense focus never wavered from the men.Sebastian stepped back, placing Oliver between himself and the dog. The animal skidded to a halt a few feet from Oliver and snarled. It crouched in front of the men, holding its head lower than its shoulders and angled to glare up at them. Tension and energy radiated from the taught muscles. The animal’s eyes, one ice blue, the other gold, bounced from his face to his hand.
And, because she's just too darn cute not to share, this little girl entered the world last night!
