Welcome back, so glad you decided to visit. This week my six sentences are from my recently released Miss Merry’s Christmas.
“Certainly nothing in the Colonies can compare to London?” Miss Jennings’ whiny voice grated on her ears.
Merry smiled at the governess. “Miss Jennings, you do remember we are no longer the Colonies? We defeated your countrymen−for the second time−a few years ago.”
The duke affected a choking sound, and Lord Brandon once again leaned toward her, “Bravo, my girl.”
England, 1817. David Worthington, Duke of Penrose dislikes Miss Meredith Chambers, the American governess who accompanied his new wards. He especially detests his attraction to the insufferable woman, and is anxious for her replacement to arrive.
Merry is thrilled when the Dowager Duchess Penrose hires her as a companion. Now she can stay with her beloved charges. But can she ignore how her heart thumps when the pompous duke gets close?
Two people determined to ignore each other, despite the pull between them, and the sparks that fly whenever they’re together.
Miss Merry’s Christmas is available on Amazon.
Have a great Sunday, and be sure to stop in and see some other great sixes from many talented authors.
