The Dark Duke, a snippet.
So here it is, proof that I have been working and not totally playing Cake Mania and Teddy Bear factory all the live long day. Here is a snippet of my current WIP, THE DARK DUKE. I had to take a break from my NaNo. I think after Christmas I'll be able to return to my NaNo; but until then enjoy the little excerpt from THE DARK DUKE, and the gratuitous picture of Gerard Butler and Emmy. I have sort of a phantom thing going on with the Duke. He's a masked Duke with a scarred past. Enjoy!
The Duke remained in the gloom until he was sure that Safi was indeed asleep. He approached the bed. Close enough to watch the even peaceful cadence of her breathing. She looked like an angel, all curled up under the covers. Her strawberry blonde hair cascaded over the white crisp linens like a halo. He admired Safi’s long lashes resting softly on her round flushed cheeks. She looked so soft and so warm sleeping there. 'I want to touch her, I want to feel the silken strands of her hair run through my fingers. I want to feel her red lips beneath mine.'
