Welcome to Snippet Sunday and Weekend Writing Warriors, your chance to sample the writing of a talented group of authors. I'm been sharing excerpts from Return Engagement. In all of the excerpts, which I didn't put in order and should have, my hero and heroine have met on a California beach ten years after his father broke them up. Dad didn't think Elizabeth was good enough for his son. Richard's father is a powerful senator, and he plans for Richard to be the President of the US one day. The senator doesn't like Elizabeth because she's an actress who comes from a bad background.In this excerpt my heroine is thinking of how Senator Lovinggood broke her and Richard up. He stopped by her house and had a little talk with her.
The senator’s cold eyes bored into hers. “Richard is only seventeen, but you are twenty-two. Presumably, you are more experienced than he is. Truthfully, I blame his infatuation for you on his inexperience. Don’t take advantage of an impressionable boy, Miss Lane. Richard isn’t a toy to be used for your pleasure and then discarded. He’ s being groomed for important work in the future, but if he keeps seeing you he has very little chance of winning any political office. If you care about him let him go. ”
