Weekend Writing Warriors: He's Hot

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors.  My excerpt today is from The Enchanted. Last week we saw that Alan's spirit wasn't broken by his time in prison, and today we see how Morgane's attitude toward Alan is changing. You can find more excerpts from participating authors at http://www.wewriwa.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:

A flash of movement a little way downstream brought her

head around. She saw Alan standing on the bank of the river. As

she watched, he removed his tunic and shucked his breeches. She

gulped as waves of heat buffeted her. He was magnificent from the

top of his burnished gold head to the bottom of his shapely legs. He

waded into the water and scrubbed his face before dunking

himself. His heavy shoulders rippled as his head cleared the water.

Morgane's heart took off at a gallop when he emerged from
the water.

Great step by step detail of the hero's appearance as the heroine watches

woohoo! This is a great snippet IMHO because you don't go overboard with detail. You tell me his hair is blond and that's the only personal detail you offer - but with the rest of the description, I can picture a hot guy very easily :D

Oh yes, I'm picturing the prince, no problem! Terrific description, loved this snippet.

She really likes what she sees! An arranged marriage can turn into love a little quicker if there's physical attraction going on.

I wonder if either of those who arranged the marriage are going to like the result?

Elyzabeth M. VaLey said...

I can picture him coming out of the water too- no wonder she's flustered. Great 8!

Susan Stuckey said...

Definitely a great choice and even with the "dip in the stream" nicely warm. Good job, lovely description.

Nice eight. I'm holding my breath right along with her...

It seems that Morgan isn't completely against the wedding.
