Snippet Sunday: 1.99 Fantasy Romance: The Green Rose #snippetsunday

Hi all, I'm participating in the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday. This month, I'll be taking snippets from my Fantasy Romance: The Green Rose. You can find the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday list at: www.wewriwa.blogspot.com








This snippet:   Sonia and Ivanstan make more discoveries.

*****
She nodded, giving him a certain amount of respect in her expression before addressing
the Tapin soldier. "Electra, where's my father?"

The woman pointed toward a rip in the rear of the tent. Two slain guards with deep slash

marks across their faces lay in front of the opening. Hiro, the falcon, moved from Sonia's arm to her shoulder.


"A man in a dark cloak drugged your father while the wyldebeasts attacked the royal guard. I saw what happened from a distance, but when I arrived, your father's guards were dead."

 A groan escaped from outside the hole. Iv├ínstan looked out of the torn fabric and discovered Cason in a sitting position, rubbing his head.

The Green Rose is a Fantasy Romance that takes place on the continent of Gaia.

I don't read much romantic fantasy, but this was so well structured and so lovely, I could not put it down.

I loved the characters of Ivánstan and Sonia and the romance growing between them is sweet and believable.

    1. Yes, This is the opening chapter. The 4 nations of Gaia came together for a trade conference and were attacked. Sonia is just discovering her father was kidnapped.

    2. Hi there. Simply wished to say your article is astonishing. The clearness in your post is simply nice and I can assume you are an expert on this subject so I decided to drop you a comment for motivation.
      Well with your permission, I'd also be glad if you could visit my blog and download a free copy of my new book titled Dating Zones For Guys. I'd be glad if you could give a short review of it too.
      Thanks a million and please continue the enjoyable work.
      Regards from Daniel.

  2. I'm glad Ivanstan and Sonia aren't antagonistic, as so many MCs tend to be---it looks like her father is going to need all the help he can get!

    1. Sarah, Sonia needs all the help she can get. No, there's no antagonism, but they're just meeting each other. There's a lot of sizing up each other.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, PT. Sonia's father isn't the only leader of Gaia that's been kidnapped.

  4. How did Cason survive Wyldebeasts? Is he lucky or did he set himself out there feigning injury?

    1. Cason was hidden in the mess of bodies on the ground. He was lucky for sure!

    1. Elaine, there is treachery afoot, but it's from a place Sonia doesn't expect.

  8. How could she tell from a distance that someone drugged him? Hmmm...I'm with the others, something isn't right here. Very intriguing, well done snippet!
