Sweet Saturday Sample: What's Wrong With Her Feet?

Welcome to Sweet Saturday Sample. In last week's sample Prince Alan met his bride for the first time at their wedding reception. He found her beautiful, but he embarrassed her when he stared at her scarred face. We pick up where we left off last week. You can find more samples at http://www.sweetsatsample.wordpress.com

Blurb:
Forced by his father into a marriage he didn’t want, Prince Alan soon finds that his bride isn’t the sweet, submissive creature he expected. Morgane has the heart of a dragon and beauty beyond compare, but she isn’t thrilled about the marriage either. When black treachery threatens the kingdom, Morgane and Alan embark on a perilous journey that has an excellent chance of ending in failure and death for them and all of their people.

Excerpt:
Alan did not think she cared about the jewelry one way or

the other. Perhaps he had angered her when he stared at her face. "I

recommend that you try the roasted pork. The cook does a

wonderful job with it. I am told that it was fed with the finest grain

just for this occasion."
 

"Thank you. I will."
 

"And the fruit is fresh too. My father brought it across the

mountains."
 

"Thank you."
 

Alan tried to think of something else to say. Inspiration

struck as he sipped his wine. "Would you care for some wine?"
 

She hesitated for a moment, then said, "Yes, some wine

would be nice."
 

Alan picked up a wine bottle that stood on the table and

poured a glass for her. She immediately sipped it. Then his father

called to him, and when he next looked back, her glass was empty.

Her shoulders had relaxed a bit. Perhaps the wine had dulled the

pain in her feet. Without being asked, he refilled her glass.

The book is available at http://www.astraeapress.com and most other online retail outlets.

My memory fails me, but have I prev. read a sample in which the foot injury is explained?
Or have I confused your story with another.
Nice trailer, by the way.

Sounds like Prince Alan is really making an effort. Hope she warms up soon.

Can't wait to see where this goes! I have a soft spot for the prince already.

He's not trying to get her drunk, is he? Lol. You've intrigued me with this snippet. I want to know all about her injury and why he cares so much.
