Before then, I’d been making good progress on the third book in The Worthingtons, which might be titled Saving the Duke. Although, as you know, I’m running about 50’% on keeping my titles.
Here is an unedited snippet.
Sure he was alone, Gideon, Duke of Rothwell, thundered down the Park’s empty carriage lane. Suddenly, a dark bay burst out of the mist burst. Yet it was the massive dog, almost the size of a pony, keeping pace with the horse that he focused on.
What the devil? Faisu, his black Murgese stallion, pranced as Gideon brought him to a halt. “Easy, boy. We don’t need that beast tangling with you.
A moment later, a twist of long, dark hair pulled loose from under the rider’s hat, riveting his attention on the other rider. By the time she was even with him, he’d taken in the neat figure incased in a dark blue habit, and her excellent seat.
She glanced over, slowing her horse for a moment as she passed him. Her cheeks were pink and a smile graced her lush lips. Their gazes met and held. In that second, Gideon felt as if he would tumble into the vivid blue of the rider’s eyes.
On to boat news. We left Annapolis for Pasadena, Maryland on Thursday, after receiving a replacement charger for my tablet. Within a day, Hubby slammed the freezer door on it. Needless to say, it no longer works.
Pasadena was a lovely place to anchor. We have friends there, had a couple of sundowners, what the cruising world calls cocktail hour, and Hubby learned how to repair fiberglass.
We have to be in NYC in eight days, so we left Pasadena this morning for Havre de Grace, Maryland which is sort of enroute to the C&D canal. I had new charger sent there. By next Sunday, we should be anchored off Coney Island.
How have you all been? Are any of you in NYC or going?
Have a great week!
