Post an Excerpt, Any Excerpt. Ok, back to normal for a month. This is your chance to shine, so post any excerpt of no more than 500 words, and, if you have them, your buy links. Don’t have buy links, post your website, blog, Twitter and Facebook info.
Here is mine from my debut novel, The Seduction of Lady Phoebe.
Marcus arrived at Cranbourne Place late on the day of the fight. As he jumped down from his curricle, Amabel, his sister, appeared at the door, clearly delighted to see him. She was as fair as he was dark.
She wore a gauzy white day gown that seemed to float around her as she gracefully descended the stairs of the portico and held out her hands in greeting. They’d exchanged letters and portraits over the years, but the last time he’d seen her she’d still been in the schoolroom and wore braids down her back.
“Marcus, do please come in. I am so glad you are here. How have you been? You are not too tired, are you? Do you wish to rest? But no, you have too much energy. You must tell me everything.”
He chuckled. “What a goosecap you are, Amabel. I suppose I can’t muss your hair now that you wear it in such a fashionable style. I’ll tell you everything as soon as you give me a cup of tea, and we may be comfortable.”
She tucked her arm in his and led him into the house. A large man stood in the entrance. Geoffrey, Earl of Cranbourne, his brother-in-law, was easily as tall as Marcus, in his mid-thirties, and dressed for the country in buckskin breeches, and a loose shirt, waistcoat and hunting jacket.
From under lowered brows, the earl gave Marcus a hard look. “Lord Marcus, welcome. I am pleased to finally meet you. You may come with me, sir. We need to discuss the reason my sister found it necessary to leave her home rather than meet you.”
