Snippet Sunday: 3.99 steampunk romance: A Lady Never Lies #snippetsunday

Hi all, I'm participating in the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday. This month, I'll be taking snippets from my steampunk romance: A Lady Never Lies, Book 3 in The Windsor Diaries. You can find the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday list at:



This snippet:     Richard discovers what is bothering Jocelyn. 

*****

 "There can't be an us."
"Why not?" His brows knitted.
She gazed at him, unable to look away as hurt danced in his eyes.

Finally, she spoke. "I don't want to be held hostage by time."
"There were complications," he replied.


****

A Lady Never Lies  is a time traveling steampunk romance and is book three in "The Windsor Diaries." Richard travels back in time to win Jocelyn's heart, but will she leave her ailing father?

  1. I wonder what she means by hostage of time? Lots of tension in very few words.

  2. I like that her head is on straight. I can feel the pain at the no from both of us...but the short little scene is well handled.

  3. "Complications"? That's probably an understatement, right? And not much of an excuse, from her POV. :)

  4. Ooh, "held hostage by time" - loved that phrase. And I can't wait to hear what sort of complications they're dealing with. Excellent excerpt!

  5. Good dialogue. This exchange seems to touch at the heart of the story conflict. Oh, potential for such heartbreak. :-)

  7. She seriously have good reasons to push him away. Now I wonder if he can overcome them.

  8. "There were complications," he replied. I'm curious to know if that is a reason or an excuse...
