A very talented group of writers are participating this week. You should take some time to visit their blogs and check out their samples. Clicking the WeWriWa link leads you to a list of this week's participants.
I'm posting a snippet from my Georgian era, romance WIP, Snowflakes & Beeswax. I decided to jump ahead a bit, mostly because I really like this particular snippet.
Thanks for visiting!
Oliver studied Madelyn's face. Emotion, indefinable but intense, darkened his eyes.
He leaned closer, his breath, which smelled of coffee and tobacco, washed over her face.
Madelyn's eyes closed as her lips parted and her hands trembled. Her body swayed towards his, his heat beckoned to her the way lamplight drew moths and she rose onto her toes.
Something, probably a branch, snapped in the distance, the sound causing Madelyn to scramble backwards, her boots slipping and sliding on the snow.
Oliver shifted, placing his body between Madelyn and the direction of the sound. He shielded his eyes and scanned the tree line.
