Sorry about yesterday. I was continuing to bask in the light of my cover for Enticing Miss Eugénie Villaret.
Today I invite you to post your page ten of your WIP, recent release or future release. If for some reason it’s not appropriate, feel free to post a different page. If you have buy links you may post them as well.
Here is my page from Enticing Miss Eugénie Villaret, and—sigh—the cover.
They reached another pier, where Andrew hailed a tall man with broad shoulders, who’d clearly been at sea for a while. “That’s Captain Black. His ship is one of the fastest you’ll find, even with cargo.”
“Mr. Grayson,” the captain grinned, “I see you’ve found his lordship, and in good time.”
“His gear will be here directly,” Andrew said, “Captain Jones is seeing to it.”
Captain Black turned his attention to Will. “Welcome aboard the Sarah Anne, my lord. I’ll have you in St. Thomas in no time at all.”
An hour later, Will stood near the bow of the ship, looking out over the water and trying to decided how to approach the problem his father had asked him to look into in St. Thomas. Though it would delay his exploration of the other islands, he knew that Watford’s protective arms encircled all of their family, no matter where they were located, and Will felt the same way. Anyone in the Wivenly family was his to care for.
Andrew joined him. “Have you decided how you will approach the problem yet?”
Will wished he had; the whole thing was deuced strange. He shook his head. “My original intent was to pay my respects to my great-uncle Nathan’s widow—funny that. Nathan was only a few years older than Will—then meet with the manager, Mr. Howden. Yet after receiving the last letter from her, telling my father the business was failing, right on the heels of a report from Howden, showing it was as prosperous as ever, I don’t know what to think, or whom to trust.”
Andrew leaned against the rail. “Someone is being economical with the truth.”
An understatement if Will had ever heard one. “The question is who. I can’t think of a reason my aunt would be dishonest. Her distress was clear from her letter. However, Howden has an impeccable reputation.”
Now it’s your turn!
