Six Sentence Sunday

From Warrior of the Nile, currently out on submission

Khenet, a warrior of  ancient Egypt, is assigned by Pharaoh to journey down the Nile as bodyguard to Tiya, a noblewoman who has been selected by the goddess Nepthys to help her put a stop to black magic threatening all Egypt. Tiya is to die in the attempt and Khenet will also perish. Attraction sparks between the lady and her warrior:

“What kind of woman takes her beloved to his death?”

He shushed her gently, finger on her lips. “We are not going to think of those subjects tonight. The magic in these temple walls holds our fate at bay. Here, there is just you and me.” He leaned forward and kissed her, his tongue sliding between her parted lips to explore the depths of her warm mouth, tangle with her eager tongue.

  1. Great scene of magic and love, passion and doom. I’m rooting for these two to find a way out, but I fear for them. Nice six Veronica!
    p.s. thanks for stopping by at my site and reading and commenting!

    • Thank you for the comments – I hope you’ll get a chance to read the entire novel someday, if it sells. LOL. Glad the excerpt conveyed the flavor and Happy SixSentenceSunday to you too!

  2. Well as someone said, it’s a romance so one can probably assume there will be HEA….but lots of good plot (I hope) to see how they manage to avoid that Fate they started out with. Thanks for the comment, made me smile too!
