Snippet Sunday: 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 realizes her attraction. 








ENJOY THIS SNIPPET: 
"Not now. Your body is exhausted and needs rest. Tomorrow morning we can try to connect with your mother. The calling should be easier." His lips brushed against her ear, sending a warm pulse of physical awareness through her. Ivánstan was all male. Slowly, she turned around in his arms to gaze into his eyes. They were soft now, the orange reminding her of the sun; his pupils, while still slitted, were narrow. 

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 Ivánstan 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 Stars, Scorching Book Reviews
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.

  5. Slitted pupils? Humans don't have slitted pupils. So what is he?

  6. Sonia and Ivanstan are bonded to the creatures of their house, and once bonded take on some characteristics of the animals, hence Ivan's eyes. I hope you've all enjoyed snippets of the Green Rose. Next week I'll be starting a new story, A Polish Heart.
