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:  Sonia's sees her father. 



ENJOY THIS SNIPPET: 
"We're sharing heat -- magical heat. Now push out. Space doesn't exist. Only your father. Concentrate on his face." 


Sonia drew in a breath and brought her father to mind -- the sound of his voice, deep and commanding, his face, rugged and lined, his scent, currants and earthy, his touch, gentle, yet firm. A vision of him appeared in her mind, but it was blurry and dark. Her father's tunic was torn, and he had been stripped of his weapons. 


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?

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

  5. You've made the summoning very vivid, especially his scent of earth and currants.
