Sweet Saturday Samples

Thank you to the Sweet Saturday Samples blog for sponsoring this great new idea of spotlighting clean fiction excerpts from authors every Saturday! All you have to do is visit the Sweet Saturday Samples blog each week to find a list of participating blogs. From there you can click from link to link to read a wide variety of clean excerpts from romance to mysteries to fantasy to, well, pretty much anything else writers would like to share while keeping it clean.

Here is my first Sweet Saturday excerpt. These are the opening lines of my sweet medieval romance, Loyalty's Web. I hope you enjoy it!


"It is a lie!"
            
The young lady struck his hand away.
            
He caught his breath at the transformation anger worked upon her. He had thought her drab but curious a moment ago, decked out in what he imagined must be some squire's cast off clothes. Although her hose-clad legs were nicely turned, the too large, knee-length tunic completely swallowed up any hint of womanly curves. He might well have taken her for a tall, lanky youth, had it not been for her pale gold braid. Even tumbled over her shoulder as it was, its thick, feathery end brushed against her hip.
            
Now tiny flecks of fire set her silvery eyes ablaze. The way her cheeks glowed, he thought the whole of her might burst into flames. A calm, critical survey confirmed a sad lack of her sister's bewitching charms. But drab this young lady most certainly was not.  

Loyalty's Web is a PG rated medieval romance. You can read more about Loyalty's Web by clicking here.

I don't read many romances, but I love the sound of this one. Drab, indeed!

A captive opening, and why is she dressed like this?

I love a good historical. Nice lead into here.
