Hi, everyone. This week’s sample is from my sweet Regency romance novella. Enjoy!
It was a tearful and timid Clytemnestra who arrived at the Assembly Rooms, Her eyes were wary as she found seats for Susan and herself, a little bit away from the throng and close to the door. Her parents, as well as Archie and Isabel, were part of the crowds doing their “see and be seen” circuit, walking around the room.
Only one person seemed to notice Clytie’s discomfort: a physician named Samuel Whittington. A cousin of Isabel’s, he had recently resigned his Army commission and worked with his fellow veterans of the Napoleonic Wars. He was lean and handsome, with dark hair and brown eyes, and many a young woman had set her cap for the dashing doctor.
When he saw Archie and Isabel chatting with Clytie, Samuel sought an introduction … and noticed Clytie’s tension ratchet up all the further.
“I must go,” she choked out, and ran out the door with Susan at her heels.
“You’ll have to excuse my sister,” Archie apologized. “She does not do well at routs any more.”
