Snippet Sunday: A Lady Never Lies, steampunk romance #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. You can find the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday list at:







About this excerpt:  Richard and Jocelyn continue their conversation about family.

ENJOY THIS SNIPPET: 

"I have a family I never realized existed. I always wanted there to be more in my family than just my father and I, but I didn't want to meet them under these circumstances."

"I suppose every family has a secret or two, in a closet."

"But there didn't have to be a secret. What did my aunt do wrong? Fall in love? For that my grandfather disowned her. That's ridiculous and it caused a rift between her and my father that didn't need to be there."

BLURB: 


Jocelyn Dunkirk is not your typical Victorian lady. She dresses in leather, wears goggles and is not afraid to get a little grease under her fingernails. Gentlemen avoid her like a dirty rivet.

Richard Windsor, the Prince of Wales, travels through time to claim Jocelyn's heart, but if it isn't one challenge, it's another. He determines to be a constant, steady presence in her life, hoping to prove he'd make a worthy husband.


Jocelyn's facing a bucket full of problems. The Prime Minister wants her to assist in ending a coal strike before it cripples the nation while her father attempts to recover from a serious injury. Will Jocelyn's dedication to her country and family ruin the one chance she has at love?

About this excerpt:  Richard gets to the heart of what's bothering Jocelyn.

ENJOY THIS SNIPPET: 
 She turned to face Richard and drew in a breath.


"My father's lawyer is traveling to Nottingham. He's probably already there. He's supposed to find my cousin, a man I had no idea existed, named Augustus Darling to advise him he's the heir to my father's title and ancestral estates."

"How can that be?" Surprise resonated in his voice.

Jocelyn explained to Richard what her father had told her about how the title and land had to pass to a male heir.

"I'm sorry," Richard said. 
BLURB:

About this excerpt:  Richard tries to get to the "heart" of the matter. Picks up right after where last week left off.

ENJOY THIS SNIPPET: 
He slid his hand over hers and laced their fingers together. A sweet jolt pulsed up her arm and she smiled despite herself.

"So what's bothering you?" he asked.

She sighed and glanced toward the window, her heart at war. To 
his credit, he remained quiet, waiting for her.

Jocelyn appreciated his patience and his quiet support in this moment. She needed to talk to someone and Richard had always been a good listener. She recalled the previous occasions with him in Lincoln, just talking and it infused her soul with a confidence and hope she hadn't felt in days. 

BLURB: 


Jocelyn Dunkirk is not your typical Victorian lady. She dresses in leather, wears goggles and is not afraid to get a little grease under her fingernails. Gentlemen avoid her like a dirty rivet.

About this excerpt:  Richard and Jocelyn banter.

ENJOY THIS SNIPPET: 
"You look annoyed."

"A lady never cusses," she replied.

His lips tipped in amusement. "What else does a lady never do?"

"They never wear the same dress twice."

He pulled up a chair and sat in front of her. "I believe that." 


"And a lady never lies," she said.

About this excerpt:  Joceyln reflects...

ENJOY THIS SNIPPET: 
She swatted her hand next to her head like she was swatting a fly. Love could flitter away from her heart like a hummingbird for all she cared. Who needed it? Love hurt.

A knock rapped on the door, but before she could voice a reply, Richard walked in. He crossed the room, raw concern splayed over his face and he knelt before her. "What's wrong?"


"Nothing."
