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:









About this excerpt:  Ivanstan continues to guide Sonia on her "magical" journey. 



ENJOY THIS SNIPPET: 
How could Sonia relax when the physical presence of Ivanstan drove her senses to distraction? 

"Clear your mind. Think of your father. Recall a happy memory of him. That's it -- he's smiling at you, pride on his face." 


"You can see my memory?" she whispered. 



BLURB: 
On the continent of Gaia, evil is brewing. Turncoat wizard, Balthyser, kidnaps the kings of Dahaka and Tapin. He wants the green rose, a source of powerful magic.

Princess Sonia of Tapin is forced to hunt down the rose in exchange for her father's life. It's the ultimate betrayal of Gaia's peace, but she has no choice if she wants to save her father.

Prince Iv├ínstan of Dahaka accompanies her on the journey. Both face challenges and obstacles that test their strength of character during the hunt for the rose. Dare Sonia put her trust and faith in a man she hardly knows to secure Gaia's peace or will the continent's harmony be shattered forever?

  5. Ooooh, the questions, Stephanie. Can he see her thoughts? Or was it a lucky guess? :-)

    He does seem like he's really trying to help her. :-)
