Six Sentence Sunday Snippet #22

I’ve been away at a conference again, and catching up with my A to Z Challenge posts, but I have something new to share this week!

Here’s a bit more from book 2 of my Highland Talents series, Highland Seer.

Bram swung as the lads had been doing.  Donal danced out of his way.

“When yer opponent is unskilled, all ye have to do is wait yer chance,” he said, watching Bram’s movements while he talked.  The moment Bram dropped his guard, Donal struck, but stopped his blade just before it connected with Bram’s chest.

Bram dropped his sword and grinned.   “A bit close, do ye think?”

Check back on 1 May for posts and pictures from my book signing with Nora Roberts and the WRW retreat!  I’ll put them up after the Blogging from A to Z Challenge ends on April 30.

    I take it Bram isn’t a lad? If he is, I like his attitude even more. :)
