Sweet Saturday Sample: Wedding Reception

Welcome to Sweet Saturday Sample. After you finish here, I hope you'll check out other participating authors at http://www.sweetsatsample.wordpress.com.  I'm continuing where I left off last Saturday.  Prince Alan just met his bride Princess Morgane for the first time at their wedding reception.

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:
He cut a slice of cake for Morgane and put it on her plate.

Her hand shook when she did the same for him. As soon as they sat

down, the servants removed the cake to a small corner table and

cut slices for the rest of the guests. The princess nibbled at a bit of

frosting, but showed no real enthusiasm for the costly delight.
 

Once the feast had concluded, Bowdyn shouted, "The

musicians are ready. My son and his bride will lead the first dance."

Alan leaned over to whisper in Morganeʹs ear. "ʺI know your

feet hurt you. We will only dance once."

The Enchanted is available from the publisher at http://www.astraeapress.com and at most other online retail outlets.

He seems like a really understanding fellow and a good husband, even if the marriage isn't a love match.

Such a short snippet, Elaine. Now I'm afraid I'll have to buy the book. It sounds great.
